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.

    Archos

    Awesome alternative to an Ipod Touch.

    The following review is coming from the point of view of a power user/techie who's had a Nokia tablet and an Ipod, who's put Linux on everything in his house including the toaster, who's built several of his own computers, and who generally likes to tinker with and hack anything that he can get his hands on.If this sounds like you and you have any reservations about buying this tablet, forget them. I think you will like the Archos 43. I skipped the 7" tablets because they're too big to fit in my pocket. I wanted something ultra-portable, and as of now, this seems to be one of the few remaining small tablets around. It is a little old now, but if you're interested in a better Ipod Touch at a fraction of the price, or a perfected successor to the Nokia Internet Tablets of a few years ago, this certainly fits the bill.Let me start with the negative. I wish this thing had the Ipod's touch screen. The resistive touch screen is good by most standards, but coming... 4/5 squashpup "squashpup" (WV) - See all my reviews This review is from: Archos 43 4.3-Inch 8 GB Internet Tablet (Electronics) The following review is coming from the point of view of a power user/techie who's had a Nokia tablet and an Ipod, who's put Linux on everything in his house including the toaster, who's built several of his own computers, and who generally likes to tinker with and hack anything that he can get his hands on.If this sounds like you and you have any reservations about buying this tablet, forget them.

    At least there's no smartphone contract!

    I do not use my cell phone very often. On my pay-as-you-go terms, I'm basically paying $8 per month. I use on average 2 texts per day. Maybe use 1-2 minutes talking on the phone per week. Why I would sign up for a smart phone plan and start paying like $50 per month is beyond me. I ain't that important or popular yet.But for someone addicted to the internet, and in need of quick drug references in the clinic and checking up on emails, this is perfect for me. A single payment of $170ish versus 24+ months of cell phone bills giving me minutes I don't need, texts I won't use and stingy data plans at obscene rates made this the logical choice for my needs. Besides, smartphone carriers and their services are a joke in the U.S. So **** em.Coming out of the box, you have to charge it before it'll turn on. Don't panic like I did and think that it's dead. Just let it charge first. Make a sandwich. Eat it. Watch TV. It's like watching a pot of water boil,... 5/5 Tsaimurai - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    GREAT DEVICE(for the price)

    In short, this is one of the best android tablets out there. It is small enough to still fit in your pocket, yet large enough to have one of the best screens ive seen in a while. The biggest complaint that ive heard is the screen, and all you have to do is install an app called launcherpro, and the device becomes 100% more responsive. This is actually what ive seen from many android devices and launcherpro makes everything so much more smooth. The stock keyboard is also a little iffy, but a quick install of either better keyboard or slideIT makes this the perfect device. Oh also as been mentioned before it does not come with the android market on it stock, but a quick google of "arctools" and then your all set up and ready to go.You can even set up google voice to send SMS and make calls right from your archos! So overall this has been a fantastic purchase.EDIT: I am retracting my 5 stars down to three, while still follow those steps to increase functionality,... 3/5 Christopher - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This is a great tablet!

    This is the best Archos tablet I've ever used and almost as good as any other tablet on the market as well. As with cell phones, choosing a tablet is a very personal endeavor. It all depends on what you like personally. Well, I like Android. Over the past year, I've had several Android tablets (I work in IT and test new devices to better help my users and being a geek, I like to play with new equipment). Up until the G9 released, my day to day tablet was an Archos 70; last year's model from them. It was a very good tablet for the price but not a top of the line product. I reviewed it on Amazon; go read that review for more info if you like. The single biggest problem with the 70 was that it didn't have enough RAM which resulted in lackluster performance; basically, it was a little sluggish and at times, very sluggish. But overall, I liked it very much and used it all the time.Well, this new one from Archos is great!

    Poor quality control, poor customer service

    I got the 80 G9 as a gift for Xmas. I set up the tablet and upgraded the firmware as recommended (this solved the problem with the camera not working). It worked alright although there was some bubbling on the display if pressure was applied to the back of the unit when holding it. Everyting worked fine, until I tried to charge the unit. Then I discovered that the battery would not take a charge.I then called Archos and arranged to send the unit into them. They sent me shipping instructions, but informed me that I had to pay for shipping, insurance, and packaging materials. They also told me that their product box was not suitable for shipping the tablet (which is odd, since that is what it was shipped to me in). Archos would not reemburse me for postage. This was surprising, since the tablet has a manufacturer's defect out of the box.It appears you roll the dice when buying this tablet.

    Exceptional value!

    The Archos may not be the best tablet out there, but is definitely the most bang for the buck. And in our family we have a droid phone and 3 other android tablets: one 7" reader type tablet, one low end tablet, and one high end tablet, so I have plenty of comparison points.Pros:* Fast 1GHz dual core CPU* Android 3.2 (and not crippled)* Enough built-in memory to get started* Expandable with up to 32 GB SDHC* Charges from USB (high power USB required) This is a HUGE deal if you travel a lot!* Good size compromise between 10" and 7". It's in the Goldilocks zone.* Archos Media Player App makes finding and playing media on home shared file systems ridiculously easy. I was really impressed with this.* Full access to both Android Market and Amazon App Store* Price!* Built in kickstand is handy* Wi-fi has been 100% reliableCons:* Ripple on the screen when the back is pressed.

    Like a wall outlet, anywhere... even while mobile

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:22 Mins(Updated for the 2nd gen, 2014 model)Frankly, I wouldn't have thought to buy this for myself. I would have thought, "I can manage... I HAVE managed without this portable power plant of a battery so far..."And I have, for years, managed.But I received the E4 as a review unit (see disclosure below), and just threw it in my bag with my things when I went out.And once you realize you've got such in incredible reservoir of power everywhere with you, well, let's just say your daily behavior that was previously subconscious to you... changes.THE "SO WHAT":If you feel you're making too many compromises for the sake of battery life (airplane mode, lowering the brightness, etc.), get yourself an external battery. Throw it in your bag, and forget about finding outlets in public spaces anymore.Even if that doesn't happen for you often, it's perfect to take along on trips (use it for rechargeable camera batteries!), to the... 5/5 Dan D - See all my reviews This review is from: Anker® 2nd Gen Astro E4 13000mAh External Battery Portable Dual USB Charger Power Bank.

    Slick Looking External Power for Every Mobile Need

    UPDATED REVIEW: Anker 2nd Gen Astro E4 13000mAh BatteryAnker sent me the 2nd Gen Astro E4 battery to review as the original review was getting a bit dated. In summary, the 2nd Gen Astro E4 definitely improved on a few items that were problematic with original version. Even if you are not upgrading from the 1st Gen, I believe the improvements are still worth considering compared to other batteries on the market. Improvements compared to 1st Gen Astro E4:- Slimmer (But Longer) Body: While the 1st Gen Astro E4 was wide and shaped like a portable hard-drive, the 2nd Gen version is shaped like a flat glasses case (or a fancy pen case). This shape is much easier to slip into a front/rear pants pocket (albeit a loose fitting pair of pants). Both version weigh about the same.- Increased Efficiency to 86% (11200mAh Actual): As stated in the original review, no batteries ever hit their capacity but this one came fairly close. This updated version hit 11200mAh... 5/5 Joseph Siu - See all my reviews This review is from: Anker® 2nd Gen Astro E4 13000mAh External Battery Portable Dual USB Charger Power Bank.

This shape is much easier to slip into a front/rear pants pocket (albeit a loose fitting pair of pants). Both version weigh about the same.- Increased Efficiency to 86% (11200mAh Actual): As stated in the original review, no batteries ever hit their capacity but this one came fairly close. This updated version hit 11200mAh... Read more Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 9, 2013

    So far great device with one flaw

    0 5/5 Steven Steele - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Anker® 2nd Gen Astro E4 13000mAh External Battery Portable Dual USB Charger Power Bank. PowerIQ™ Broad Compatibility, Fast Charging, High Capacity, Ultra Compact. For iPhone 6 5S 5C 5 4S, iPad Air mini, Galaxy S5 S4 S3, Note 3 4, Tab 4 3 2 Pro, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), LG G3, Nexus, MOTO X and More (Black). (Electronics) So far it works as described. Easy to charge and has all the adapters to charge my toys. The one really bad flaw is an on/off button that is raised above the case. This means it tends to get turned on accidentally in a briefcase or suitcase. Anyone that travels frequently knows that on/off switches need to be sunken in the case or protected by a raised bevel.UPDATE --->> I had to come back and give this device a fifth star, as much for the Customer Service as anything else. I have used it several times and it works great. In addition to that, the manufacturer has emailed me and Customer Service called me last night and offered to exchange this for the Anker 14400 which apparently has a more flush button. I declined because I really like the way this one charges but I was very impressed. They really seemed like they were not going to rest until I was completely satisfied. 5 stars for attitude! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 22, 2013
