When setting up the Agora 6 Plus I loaded up my usual suite of applications including:
Email: Microsoft Outlook
Music: Apple Music, Pandora
Video: Stan, Netflix, MX Player Pro
Launcher: Nova Launcher Pro
Other: Dropbox, Photoshop, eBay, VPN
Launching and switching between apps is quick and smooth, and loading web pages over a strong 4G connection is fast.
The Agora 6 Plus had no problem recognizing my 200GB SanDisk microSD despite the specifications indicating support “up to 128GB”. The built-in 32GB offers plenty of room for loading apps and larger games, leaving the microSD to fill in with media storage.
The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner takes advantage of the native support in Android 6.0, and is nicely positioned when used in the hand. If you are unlocking your device while it’s laying on a table, you’ll either have to pick it up or enter your code.
Thanks to the inclusion of NFC the Agora 6 Plus is compatible with Android Pay and other banking apps with payment support. Features like NFC tend to go missing in cheaper devices, it’s really nice to see it included here.
The front includes a capacitive home key, oddly duplicating the Android onscreen keys, and a multi-colour notification light that glows elegantly across the bottom of the phone.
