Reviews for the Archos 50 Helium 4G

80% Archos 50 Helium 4G

A Quad Core Processor with 4G capability, a 5inch screen, 8MP rear camera and 8GB of memory are just the main features. Archos are a company that has made Tablets but a quick rack of my brain cannot remember any phones from them in the past. While this is a phone it is of course also a PDA and as it runs Android also a Tablet so a three in one device.

Archos has crafted itself a fully functional 4G phone, but it’s simply uninspiring thanks to its boring design, lack of standout features and an inadequate display. If you’re after bang for buck, Google's Nexus 5 gives you better specs and a better screen to boot, while Motorola's Moto G with 4G powers offers an overall much better priced bargain - we wish Archos would step it up, but it looks like just another middling mobile to us.
