Reviews for the Archos 80 Xenon
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.

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With average performance, an outdated version of Android and very disappointing battery life, it’s difficult to recommend the Archos 80 Xenon.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.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
