Kogan prices Samsung Galaxy S5 $129 below RRP

Makes announcement in error-ridden newsletter.

Many of the specs listed are incorrect: Kogan is offering an 8-core S5; the One (M8) has a 2.5GHz CPU and a rear 4MP Ultrapixel camera.

Two of the hottest smartphones this year have been priced by etailer Kogan, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8)

Kogan will sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 $129 below retail for $799.

Samsung’s recommended price for the Galaxy S5 is $929, but it appears Kogan can afford to drop the pricing of the Galaxy S5 by offering the overseas variant. The G900I is a Galaxy S5 with an Octa-core CPU, but as far as we can tell, this comes at the expense of 4G connectivity.

Kogan announced the availability of the Galaxy S5 in its suspiciously erroneous newsletter. The newsletter incorrectly claims Kogan is offering the quad-core Galaxy S5 — the model Samsung is releasing in Australia — for $799. Although Kogan is offering the quad-core model of the Galaxy S5, it is priced at $849.

The HTC One (M8) is priced less competitively by the etailer. Kogan is offering the smartphone for $829, which is below HTC’s recommended retail price of $899. The HTC One (M8) features a 2.5GHz CPU and a rear 4MP Ultrapixel camera, despite the newsletter stating otherwise.

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 will be available in stores in just a few days on 11 April. HTC’s flagship One (M8) has already been released.

Update, 10 Mar: Kogan has lowered the price of the 4G Samsung Galaxy.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
