When Charlie told me to do a comprehensive review of the Kogan Agora 4G, I told him I'd rather put a rusty nail through my foot. As a tech writer, I'm very spoilt when it comes to my choice in phones, I've been lucky enough to spend time with all of the major flagships. As such, giving up my LG G3 and downgrading to a barebones budget smartphone seemed like a nightmare. Begrudgingly, I slotted in my SIM card and took the device for a spin. But after a couple of days with the Agora 4G, I was pleasantly surprised.
