Reviews for the Archos 55 Platinum

70% Archos 55 Platinum
Source: Gadgetspeak English
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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
