Archos 50 Platinum Overview
The Archos 50 Platinum is yet another device that will set up home rather nicely in the budget department of any shop whilst at the same time giving you an experience you only expect to see on high end devices. Archos have always been about giving their customers value for money and with the Archos 50 Platinum they have stuck true with their cause. With the smartphone market being extremely competitive, they have found a good balance between affordability and what you'll get out of the box.
Power and Performance
Although this sits firmly in the budget pigeon hole, there are some great specs to not only keep you going along with the best of them but also making sure that you have a device that is going to see you right for the near future. With a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Quad-Core processor, playing games and getting around the screen will look and feel slick. Whilst it may not be what you may find in the likes of the Sony Z2 or the new HTC M8, to the untrained eye you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference.
The 5 inch screen is perfect for viewing pictures taken with the rear 8 megapixel camera, taking a selfie or enjoying a Google Hangout with friends and family. As is the norm with cameras there are various modes for you to choose from, including HDR and something that even the high end market lacks: image stabilization, all this powered by a 2,000 mAh battery.
