    Locked to Kogan?

    Note that second SIM slot is shared with microSD so it cannot be dual SIM plus microSD.

    This phone doesn't get a mention in the Ozbargain Forum Poll for best phones.

      Mainly because at $350 this phone would've been pretty uncompetitive against all the Xiaomi's and Motorola's

      Also, no notification LED.

    Ok what I'm reading on the review sites (productreviews, cnet etc.) is that there are some common issues:
    - Android pay not working.
    - Some people can't get bluetooth to pair and some can't get it to work even when paired.
    - Camera is sub-par and useless in low light despite megapixels.
    - Issues with switching to vibrate (unable to do so after Android update).
    - Handset too quite if not on loudspeaker.
    - Sound quality playing music sub par.
    - Complaints about Kogan support.
    - One user had a touchy screen.

    Obviously won't be as fast as a flagship either.

    Sounds like it would make an okay secondary/backup phone but would drive me nuts as my daily driver.

    Doesn't Kogan use the Vodafone network, which does not use band 28 (which this phone has) but uses band 1 (which this phone does not support)?

    Lost me at the MTK chip, and kogan is not helping…

  •  

    Who makes it? Somebody like ZTE?
    I'm assuming Ruslan is not building prototypes in his garage.

    •  

      nah.

      hundreds of tiny factories in China… search the web, some tabs only cost $30 from the factory, yes thirty dollars… some firms mark-ups are #****** crazy

      •  

        I've been to that part of China and seen the sprawl of small factories making everything imaginable. But would have thought such a phone is a bit harder.
        Are they just building reference designs from the component manufacturers?

        If a tiny company can configure and test Android updates for each model phone decently, why does it take the big companies so long to release updates?
        Is a Kogan going to be far more buggy?

        •  

          yes, they can make it, doesn't mean it's good though, neither the specs (hardware) or the OS (software)…

      •  

        I found an example of such a factory:

        http://szelephone.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/60088490...

        That one is us$170 each, 1000-units.

        So $230 retail delivered is very good!

  •  

    Do yourself a favour and spend 60% of this on a Xiaomi device which will be better than devices that cost twice as much.

    How are Kogan with software updates?

    Honestly. We should just be able to upgrade our own software on our phones like how we do it on our PCs.

  •  

    Would be a good price a good year or two ago. Now it's like, I mean, it's not bad, but it's nothing special.

  •  

    I missed the deal! Not sure if it's what I wanted though. I need to get a phone that will take 2 sims AND an SD card as a Christmas present- Max $350 spend. It will only be used as a phone and a bit of data (news papers, articles etc with a bit of "how to" on U Tube.It must also be able to use an app to scan documents = hence the need for SD card. Does anyone know of anything coming on special this side of Christmas. Good 2nd hand would be fine too if I knew what to buy. I was discounting anything with 2g but after reading the posts this morning I see that's not necessary. so according to you guys it's going to be an LG, Xperia, Zenfone, Motorola, Moto or Zuk2.

  •  

    Thanks! i'll look at those. Might even find a good 2nd hand G4 on ebay. Appreciate the help. too many choices and virtually zero knowledge.
