If you need a new phone but don't want to shell out four digits, Kogan has your back.
The company today announced its Agora 8 -- it's similar to the Agora 6 Plus, but at AU$199 is about a hundred bucks cheaper.
For that money you'll get a phone with a 5-inch 1,280x720-pixel display, 2GB of RAM, a quad-core processor and dual SIM slots, which travellers will be happy to note. On paper, it's got similar fire-power to the AU$300, but has storage expandable to 128GB (compared to the Motos' 32 or 64GB).
Camera-wise, the Angora 8's 12 megapixels aren't as good as the Asus ZenFone 3's 16-megapixel rear lens, but comes close to the Sony Xperia XA's 13 megapixels. That's not bad, given it's still cheaper than both -- though megapixels aren't everything.
