Archos 32 Review

 

Normally, critics chuckle with maniacal glee given the chance to savage a really awful product. But we take no joy in reporting the Archos 32, the company's 3.2-inch Android-based portable media player (or, as the company pretentiously calls it, an...

Voices in music and video sound faint or missing ; Fuzzy screen ; Limited number of Archos-optimized Android apps ; Slow processor ; Poor VGA camera ; No expandable memory

A 3.2-inch screen and Android 2.1 sound like a winning combination for $150, but poor audio quality, a dim screen and numerous other problems prevent the Archos 32 from posing any threat to Apple's iPod Touch.

With there now being five (oh yes, five!) Archos Android Internet Tablets on the market, it's understandably hard to keep 'em all straight, but in our

Support for lots of audio and video formats ; Responsive resistive touchscreen ; Good sound quality

Lacks access to Android Market ; Awkward camera placement ; No speaker

Timex’s Ironman Global Trainer is solid device that’s decidedly more watch-like than other GPS watches, but it’s still on the large side, and more expensive than some competitors.

This Android-based portable media player does more than the iPod nano for the same price, but is it a better deal?

For $149, the Archos 32 is a pretty good deal, so long as you're willing to live with some trade-offs. It's a solid portable media player that can also surf the web and access (some) Android apps. We especially like the wide range of supported audio...

Archos 32 ( 8GB)

 

The Archos 32 delivers features such as music and video playback, e-mail, Web browsing, Bluetooth, a camcorder, and plenty of Android 2.2 goodness, in a contract-free device that fits in your pocket.

Archos uses its own app store instead of the official Google Marketplace. The touch screen is difficult to read outdoors, and the keyboard's small size makes it prone to error. The audio player choked on some podcasts and audiobooks. Storage is limited.

The Archos 32 tablet offers many of the core features of Android 2.2 at an attractive price, but its keyboard is too impractical to rely on as a productivity tool, and the Archos-managed app store limits the device's overall potential.

Gadgetell Hands On: Archos 32 Internet Tablet

 

Personally, I have been checking out these new Archos devices since we first started seeing leaks several months back. Given that, and given I was able to find one in stock I finally broke down and pulled the trigger on the Archos 32, though in truth I...

On the other hand, the Archos 32 has a smaller screen, a thicker body, a plastic case, a lower resolution display, a resistive touchscreen, and no speaker, which explains why it costs so much less than an iPod touch

Archos 32 Internet Tablet

 

This tiny Android tablet has some good features, but the highlights fail to outweigh the shortcomings of this finicky device.

Good media playback; slim design

Finicky touch controls; hard-to-use virtual keyboard; no 3G option; not compatible with Android Market; freezes up after prolonged non-use; no maps or GPS functionality

If you’re in love with Android, just wait: More devices will be coming out soon. For the time being, though, if you need to buy a little media player for around If you’re in love with Android, just wait: More devices will be coming out soon. For the...

A neat and affordable iPod touch alternative

Archos 32 Internet Tablet review

 

Archos has long been at the forefront of the PMP market and by updating its portables with wireless connectivity and most recently the Android OS, it attempts to fight off competition from rivals and high-end mobile phones. The Archos 32 could easily...

Decent display, range of connectivity, good all-round performance, reasonably priced

On-screen keyboard can be awkward to use, poor camera, limited Apps on the Android OS, no microSD card upgrade option

As an effective evolution of the MP3 player the Archos32 succeeds, but we’re not sure how much longer these sorts of devices will be able to hold off mobile phones
