Archos 80 G9 Review

 

In the world of sub-$300 Android tablets, the Archos 80 G9 is one of the better options, but that's not saying much. While we like that it offers full access to the Android Market, snappy performance, and fun media apps, it's far from perfect. The...

Good performance, Inexpensive, Convenient kickstand, HDMI output

Mediocre build quality, Runs hot, Limited viewing angles

Archos 80 G9 review

 

Archos debuts Arnova 9 G2 Android tablet, offers Gingerbread on a 9.7-inch IPS displayNokia to release Windows 8 tablets this June, top

Built-in kickstand ; Full-sized USB port ; Long battery life for a tablet this size ; Excellent value

Other Android tablets feel snappier ; No rear-facing camera

How many other $300 tablets run Android 3.2 and come with a kickstand and full-sized USB port? Try as you might, you'll be hard-pressed to get as much bang for your three hundred bucks.

Archos 80 G9 (8-inch)

 

The tablet business is pretty cutthroat (just ask HP) and with the release of Amazon.com's Kindle Fire just weeks away, it's only going to get scarier out there for would-be iPad competitors.

The lightweight, 8GB Archos 80 G9 tablet runs 1080p video smoothly, and its kickstand is a useful addition

The tablet is uncomfortable to hold, with disappointing viewing angles and awkward button placement. Its single camera has poor recording quality

The 8GB Archos 80 G9 delivers a complete Honeycomb experience at a low price, but its rough design, low-quality camera, and awkward button placement make it feel rushed to market.

ARCHOS 80 G9 Review [Video]

 

It's time for the G9 series of Android tablets from ARCHOS, a Texas Intstruments OMAP4 dual-core 1GHz processor toting set of unique-looking pieces of hardware set to hit the streets of North America soon. What we've got here is the smaller of the two,...

This is the first Texas Instruments dual-core 1GHz OMAP4 processor-toting Android tablet on the market, and it's pretty decent. The kickstand, being as large and obviously important as it seems, is a bit of a disappointment as it's made of plastic and...

Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

 

Short Version: The Archos 80 G9 tablet isn't necessarily something I'd recommend for the hardcore tablet enthusiast, but it certainly gets the job done. Powered by pure Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the tab offers everything you'd expect out of Android and a...

Stock Android install works fine ; Battery life exceeded the amount advertised, which is unheard of/lovely ; HD 1080p video via HDMI-out was an unexpected treat

Really poor build quality ; To put it nicely, it’s not the most gorgeous tablet I’ve seen ; Wi-Fi only, yet it teases you with a slot for a 3G dongle which will only work in Europe

At just under $300, the Archos G9 is a fine slate. It comes packed with all the essentials, and has a battery life that should last around as long as you do. But if you’re looking for a high-quality tablet, this probably isn’t it. I’d recommend it as a...

Archos 80 G9 review

 

We review the Archos 80 G9 dual core tablet. For less than £200, can this cut-price tablet really challenge the big boys?

Low price, dual-core CPU, 3G expandability, Android 3.2

Cheap casing, some units have screen problems

The Archos 80 G9 boasts a fearsome sets of specs for the price, but the quality control problems impacting some units make it hard to recommend wholeheartedly
