Archos 50 Platinum review


The Archos 50 Platinum is really a phone for those who need or want access to dual-SIM card functionality - a rare thing in the UK. Usually this would be business users, or those who travel a lot. Now that doesn't sound typical of Archos, the company...

Sensible price, nice design, stock Android, easy to use, dual-SIM can be very helpful, bright IPS LCD screen has natural colour

Archos 50 Platinum


Years ago, Archos was one of the very first companies out there to ship an Android-powered tablet, but it's only just now getting into the phone game. Meet the Archos 50 Platinum, a phone with a five-inch screen to sate your big screen display needs on...

We’re glad to see Archos finally getting into the smartphone game, but it faces stiff competition. Too stiff, in fact: since Google’s very own (and quite possibly subsidised) Google Nexus 4 Android smartphone packs better specs and more up to date...
