Reviews for the Archos 50 Diamond

Archos 50 Diamond: Emerald cut
Source: GSM Arena English
In our testing we found the Archos 50 Diamond above average to very good. We have to admit that we were surprised at times by its performance - especially in areas like the still camera. It takes many big names in the mobile space years to make a good camera and Archos has done it easily with their first real flagship.

Comment

Model: The Archos 50 Diamond is undeniably a top performer in the mid-range smartphone category at a budget price. This stylish model sports a choice of basic black or eye-catching neon yellow color, providing users a choice to stay classy or stand out from the crowd. Built with quality plastic, its solid frame will definitely please non-fussy users who do not mind having a non-metal finishing on their phone. With a 5 inch Full HD IPS display (1920 x 1080), the 50 Diamond provides a nice pixel density and will definitely be a treat for movie and video-watching activities. Its Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa core processor and Adreno 405 550 MHz graphics adapter promise remarkable performance even for demanding, mobile 3D mobile games with minimum lags to provide a satisfying gaming experience.

For non-gamers, this processor will appeal in the way it ensures smoothly running of multiple simultaneous apps. In addition, the 50 Diamond comes with a low light 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP front, providing excellent picture quality in terms of details and colors, but the outcome may not be sharp enough due to excessive smoothing. Regrettably, this model only comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and it has a non-removable battery, which may be a concern to some. Despite that, Archos' 50 Diamond has a long battery life of up to 2 days, dual-sim support, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 128 GB with a microSD card.

Qualcomm Adreno 405: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs. Depending on the used SoC the clock rate is around 500 MHz and features 48 unified shaders.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
