If you really want a full-sized tablet for less than the price of an iPad, consider splashing out a little extra on the Google Nexus 10. Otherwise, go for one of the above compact alternatives. In either case, you'll be getting a lot more tablet for your money.

Archos 52 Platinum

Simplistic, capable and affordable; the Archos 52 Platinum is a solid implementation of a smartphone. A good design doesn’t need to be fancy or flamboyant. The Archos 52 Platinum fits perfectly in the hand with its thin pebble-like shape and curved edges. At the back of the device is a nicely formed back cover with just the right amount of grip. The entire device comes in dark grey and the device is surrounded by a beautiful metal bezel. Display on the Archos 52 Platinum is a 5.25 inch HD IPS panel, which produces sharp images and good colors. Hardware on the smartphone consists of a Mediatek MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB RAM, a Mali 400MP2 GPU and 8 GB of internal storage. The Android 4.4 KitKat system supports microSD cards up to 64 GB and comes with dual SIM function. There is an 8 MP primary camera with autofocus at the rear and a 2 MP front camera. Other features packed into the device are Bluetooth, A-GPS and a solid performing speaker. The Archos 52 Platinum comes with a lithium ion battery rated at 1750 mAh and weighs only 161 g.

We’re a fan of its media capabilities, a surprisingly usable rear camera and for those who need an affordable dual-SIM device, this is undoubtedly one handset we’d strongly recommend. Assuming it makes the jump from KitKat to Android JellyBean, the 52 Platinum should stay relevant for a little longer and whilst it definitely isn’t for everyone, it’s unquestionable right for a very specific group of users. We just hope you’ve found our review.

The Archos 55 Platinum measures 15x7.5x.7cm the last figure at the edges but the rear camera does protrude slightly, it weighs 162grams. This is a large 5.5inch screen Android phone that comes with Dual SIM it has 8GB of memory and a Quad Core Processor so as it also has a 13MP camera with LED flash it may well tick all the boxes for a lot of people.
