Reviews for the Archos 70

85% Archos 70 Android 7in tablet

While there are no plans from Archos to enable Android OS upgrades, if you want a tablet primarily to watch video, listen to music, read e-Books and keep on top of your e-mail and social networks, then the Archos 70 is probably all the tablet you will ever need. It’s small, light, has a decent battery life and, after a quick trip to Archos Fans, will do most of the things a tablet costing twice the price will do. Hunt around and you can find one for around £195.

Getting the best out of the Archos 70 requires a tweak or two to both the device and how you use it. You won't need to resort to such measures if you're willing to splash out £599 on an HTC Flyer or £329 on a first-gen iPad, but for its sub-£200 price, the Archos 70 makes for a worthy budget option.

Held back by an old version of Android and limited app access, but once upgraded could win another star.

7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

76.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
