Reviews for the Archos 80 Xenon

80% Archos 80 Xenon
Source: Gadgetspeak English
The Archos 80 Xenon measures 21.5x15.5x1cm and weights 435grams. Perhaps the name gives a clue to the screen size if not its 8inches. This is an Android Tablet that is ideal to use over Wi-Fi. Of course its touch and with the creamy white surround to the screen it does not show your fingermarks, joy.

70% Archos 80 Xenon review: Giving you Jelly Bean on a budget is the only thing you need to know
Source: Techradar English
We could see the 80 Xenon doing a great job as a family tablet left in the kitchen, though its economic sweet-spot is as an occasional mobile tablet for the commute or car. Though we do like it a lot, it's just not got the grunt and extra features of the Acer A1 Iconia, for example. However, with the 3G version of that challenger clocking-in at around £200, the 80 Xenon makes its case as the cheapest mobile Android Jellybean 3G tablet, that's mostly pleasant to use.

With average performance, an outdated version of Android and very disappointing battery life, it’s difficult to recommend the Archos 80 Xenon. The Asus FonePad may be slightly slower on paper and have a 7in screen, but we think it’s the better buy if you absolutely must have mobile broadband and don’t want to spend £300 on a top-end Google Nexus 7.

8.0": This is a very small format, 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.


0.5 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.
