Reviews for the Archos Diamond Omega

Archos Diamond Omega: Solid performer
Source: DxOMark English version
For casual photographers, or anyone who doesn’t feel they need the very best image quality from the latest flagship phones, the Archos Diamond Omega does a competent job under most typical shooting conditions. Images don’t stand up to close scrutiny, though.Fast autofocus and accurate exposure make it attractive for capturing action or fast-moving scenes, while color issues and artifacts won’t appeal to those trying to make the most of their landscape or travel photos. Its video strengths and shortcomings parallel those for still images, with quick and accurate autofocus once again its biggest strength. Note that it’s quite possible that there will be continued improvement in some areas involving image processing, such as zoom and bokeh, through future firmware updates.

Let's be perfectly frank here, most of you are not going to run out (or rather, fire up a browser) and get the Archos Diamond Omega with confidence in the said purchase. The situation might be a bit better for its Nubia Z17s variant, but not by much, especially outside China.

Qualcomm Adreno 540: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Slighly optimized architecture compared to the Adreno 530 but with higher clock speed due to the new 10 nm process. In the beginning of 2017 one of the fastest graphics cards for Android based smartphones.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 835: High-End SoC for smartphones that was introduced in early 2017 and manufactured in 10 nm LPE FinFET at Samsung. Integrates 4x Kryo 280 at 2.45 GHz (max) for performance and 4x Kryo 280 at 1.9 GHz (max) for efficiency. Furthermore offers an X16 LTE modem, ac-WiFi and a dual-channel 32-Bit 1866 MHz LPDDR4x memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

Archos: The French manufacturer Archos S.A. was founded in 1988. While they initially produced products such as MP3 players, they have started producing laptops, smartphones, and tablets in 2009.


The world market shares are small, but there are many reviews on Archos smartphones and tablets. While the ratings were below average in the early years, they have become better by 2016.

72.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
