It has been a while since a tablet catches our attention with the amount of amazing smartphone that seems to be released every day. One such tablet is Kogan Agora HD Mini 3G tablet which is available for under $200 and is definitely value for money judging by the specs.


Falling in the category of mid-sized tablet due to its 7.85-inch screen size, the look and feel of it suggests something that is stylish and you can’t help yourself but to get up close and personal with the device to know more about it.

The tablet is packed in a 20.5 x 14.0 x 1.0cm body and weighs 398 g (14.04 oz) which feels just nice in your hands although a tad overweight compared to the others.

With a 7.85-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen displaying 1024 x 768 pixels or ~163ppi pixel density, the images being displayed are average but the IPS LCD screen does help to a little bit in making the image livelier as well as giving it a wider viewing angle so you will be able to share the screen with a friend or two.

Under the hood of the Agora HD Mini 3G tablet is the Mediatek MT8389 chipset, a Quad-core 1.2GHz processor, PowerVR GPU with 1GB of RAM. The performance is quite good and is able to run most apps and games really well. Due to the 1GB RAM though, when you run some intensive games such as racing games that it starts to lag a little bit. But other than that, if you use it for running daily tasks, it shouldn’t be much of an issue.

It is equipped with a 8 Megapixel primary camera as well as 5 Megapixel secondary camera which is good enough for you to take your daily snapshots and uploading it to your favorite social media.

The Agora HD Mini 3G Tablet is currently running on Android Jelly Bean 4.2. Don’t expect it to get an update to the latest KitKat 4.4 though.

There should be ample space with 16GB of internal storage plus there’s also an option to further expand with a microSD slot of up to 32GB.

With a huge Li-Ion 4500 mAh battery powering the tablet up, this could easily mean a few days of battery life in between charging which is quite good.

The Kogan Agora HD Mini 3G tablet performs the job well at a fraction of the money compared with other reputable brands like Samsung Galaxy Tab or Galaxy Nexus. The fact that Kogan is 100% Australian owned is a very good prospect indeed and if you’re on the lookout for an affordable tablet, then look no further.

The Kogan Agora HD Mini 3G tablet is available for approximately $199 USD and is only available in black and is available in stores nationwide.
