Reviews for the Archos 50 Power

78.6% Archos 50 Power Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
French Power for everyone. Archos' 50 Power features a superb configuration in the form of a strong battery, 5-inch IPS HD screen, quad-core processor and 16 GB of internal storage plus 2 GB of working memory - all this at an entry price of 150 Euros (~$167). However, it has to pass through our test course before we give it a purchase recommendation.
80% Archos 50 Power
Source: Gadgetspeak English
A 5 inch SmartPhone from Archos called 50 Power, it looks like many other phones but your secret is that it is sold SIM free and costs somewhat less than a lot of equivalent phones; it can be either a single SIM or dual SIMphone. The extremely reflective screen is my pet hate but ladies might use it as a make-up mirror when the screen is blanked.
