Pros
Fast and responsive, with a clean and simple user interface. BIG screen. feels reasonable quality.
Cons
Nothing significant.. To be picky screen colours are not as vibrant as the big (and much more expensive) players. Standard ring tones a little wishy/washy. Competitor $60 Android phone I used recently had better ring tones. But for $199 who cares!

Took delivery of this phone today and so far very impressed; the phone feels quick, responsive, feels reasonable quality. Big screen is awesome.

I also own a Samsung S3 and find this phones both feels and behaves very similarly. When you put the two phones side by side the screen of the S3 interface is of course, more crisp, the colours have more depth to them and the Agora doesn't have swype text (that I can see). Otherwise this phone is amazing for what you get for the price, but regardless of the price is very simple and user friendly.

I like how the power button is in the same position as the Samsung Galaxy models and I like the fact the home button is flush rather than a push button (more durable over time?)

The print/text on this phone is crisp and professional looking too

I have recently used a small, basic Android $60 phone and found that one to be infuriating. This is a value packed phone but to me it gives a seriously close experience to the big players for a lot less money. No lag, and the touchscreen is light to the touch.

IMHO this phone would be good for both beginnners, (chosing this over various other Android phones with tiny screen for a few less dollars), to those who looking for a good all rounder for internet use, messaging and phone duties.

Verdict; highly recommeded. I'd use it over the iphone 5 I used to have (smaller screen, no standout features over the Kogan phone).. Enough said. :-)

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.
