Kogan Agora 4G

The Moto G LTE offers a lot of smartphone for the money, but Kogan reckons that's not quite enough value for your hard-earned cash -- the Aussie outfit just brought its latest smartphone, the Agora 4G, to the US and UK. Pay the same $219 (£149) you would for Motorola's device and you'll get a larger 5-inch screen, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a beefier 2,500mAh battery on top of speedy LTE data (on AT&T) and a quad-core Snapdragon processor. Sounds great, doesn't it?

Well, we'd be a little cautious before diving in. It's a big step up from the Agora HD we tried this spring with both a faster processor and that all-important 4G internet access, but it's otherwise a familiar design -- we'd expect the HD's so-so camera performance and quirky software to carry over. If the Moto G LTE is a little too compact for your liking, though, the Agora 4G is likely to be on your short list of alternatives.
