Beginning Android 3

Creator: Mark Murphy | Computers - 2011-04-29

NOTE: Because Google Maps is not part of the Android open source project, some devices lack Google Maps due to licensing issues. For example, at the time of this writing, the Archos 5 Android tablet does not have Google Maps.

    0 4/5 chuck norris - See all my reviews This review is from: Archos 97 Carbon 9.7-Inch 16 GB Tablet (Bronze) (Personal Computers) I personally love this tablet. It has some great features and is really nice looking. First of all it runs ics which is an awesome operating system. It has an hd screen, and a rear and front facing camera. The cameras aren't to spectacular but why would you take a picture with a tablet any way. It is very fast browser and has 16gb of storage. The only complaints I would have are the battery life and no Bluetooth. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 10, 2012

    Cool Idea Killed by ABYSMAL Battery Life

    You would think that when Archos came up with the idea to build a tablet designed to play games, they would have thought to put in a battery that would last more than 2 hours when playing GAMES! You can search Google for reviews on this device and see that it has gotten absolutely hammered for the poor battery life. Here's the cut and dry of it. You will NOT get more than 2 hours of life out of this device if you plan on using it to play games. Ever so slightly longer if you watch videos. And this is if you have WIFI off and screen brightness to near minimum. Which is a shame, because the device is cool. The screen is clear and of a reasonable quality for the price. The buttons are decent. The Dpad is actually 4 separate buttons, so good luck doing any Shoyuken Street Fighter moves. The mapping tool (used in games that don't support physical buttons, allowing you to map the physical buttons to the on screen buttons) is very nice.

    Great inexpensive gaming tablet/media player.

    0 5/5 Steve - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Archos Gamepad 8 GB Tablet - 7- Inch. - ARM Cortex A9 1.60 GHz (Personal Computers) I am very satisfied with this device. While I wouldn't recommend forking over $300 dollars for it, it is well worth the retail price of $169-$179. I bought this device mainly for emulation of classic consoles, and I'm happy to say that all of the emulators I've tried run flawlessly on its modest hardware. Also, it makes a great portable media player with the addition of the Micro SD slot and Mini HDMI out. The physical controls take some getting used to, but are very accurate and responsive. Despite other reviewers opinions, I don't think the battery life is all that bad, definitely on par with a DS or a PSP. If you lower the brightness setting a little as I did, you can expect to get 4-5 hours of battery life. In general I definitely recommend this device, but I would definitely wait for the price to drop back to normal. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 29, 2013

    Good horsepower for emulators but mediocre controls and poor battery life

    Customer Video Review Length:: 8:18 MinsI picked this up to see how it compares to the new GCW Zero, an open source handheld designed to play retro video games. The Archos Gamepad costs the same but has a lot more processing power under the hood and a much larger screen.The Archos does a nice job emulating even newer consoles. Dreamcast emulation is smooth, and more modern arcade games run nicely as well. The old retro favorites from the 8 and 16 bit era also run quite nicely.But the Archos falls sort in a few areas: the first being the mediocre controls that feel very disjointed and imprecise. The L2 and R2 buttons, which would normally be at the top of the controller, are oddly placed underneath the control pad and buttons on both sides of the unit. They're too close to the other buttons and are also raised so it's very easy to hit them without intending to. Battery life is pretty lousy as others have mentioned - I was surprised by how short it is when playing games on... 3/5 Lon J. Seidman "lon@ lon.tv" (CT) - See all my reviews, February 5, 2014

    Power to Play: Thanks to the super-powerful Quad-Core graphics processor, the Archos GamePad has more than enough power to take on even the most graphically intense games.
    Still a cutting-edge tablet: The Archos GamePad runs the ultra-smooth Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean', so it's still the perfect platform for apps, internet, multimedia, email, books...it's still a tablet.
    Buttons and Revolutionary Mapping Tool: Combining the revolutionary Archos game mapping tool with the ARCHOS GamePad's 14 physical buttons and dual analog thumb-sticks mean that the physical is finally bought back to your games.
