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

Battery life can be bad, dual-SIM interface can confuse things, bad phonebook recall for incoming calls and text messages, headphone jack is ill-fitting

We have genuine love for the Archos 50 Platinum. It's a simple phone, without much customisation, but that will be a draw for many. We found that, despite its decent spec, it can feel a bit slow and unresponsive. It's not a big deal, but this phone...

Desperate for a dual-SIM smartphone? Archos has reasonably priced option for you.

Relatively zippy ; Pleasing audio output ; Decent build quality

Disappointing screen quality ; Limited internal storage ; Poor battery life

The Archos 50 Platinum is a 5-inch Android smartphone that features dual-SIM functionality for those looking to better segregate their work-life balance. A mid-range handset with a price more akin to an entry-level device, the Archos 50 Platinum is...

Archos 50 Platinum Review: In Depth

 

One of Archos' first Android smartphones offers quad-core performance, dual-SIM functionality and 64GB microSD support for under £230.

Great 8-megapixel camera ; Solid battery life ; 64GB microSD support

Cheap design ; Large but low resolution display ; Low internal storage

With it’s more mid-range spec sheet and price tag of around £225, we’d place it against the new Nokia Lumia 625, which offers affordable 4G and a comparable screen size for around the same price, the Sony Xperia SP, again for 4G LTE and a more premium...

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...

The Archos 50 Platinum is well built for its £209.99 SIM-free price. It’s plasticky, yes - it reminds us of Samsung’s original Galaxy S - but it feels like it could take a tumble or four, unlike HTC’s delicately carved One or a precious iPhone 5, and...

The Archos 50 Platinum can keep up with the relentlessly increasing average smartphone screen size, but it can’t match some of its rivals on resolution. Its 960x540 display looks a tad grain and washed out compared to the vivid HD displays on Samsung’s...
