Conclusion: A flagship the Archos 50 Platinum may be seen as, but the term is relative to the brand. As it’s first real foray into the Android smartphone market, Archos has taken an interesting stance, gracing its new handset with a solid multimedia experience, albeit with a lacklustre design and a few disappointing hardware elements (namely the display the lack of Full HD video playback support).
Pros: Great 8-megapixel camera, Solid battery life, 64GB microSD support
Cons: Cheap design, Large but low resolution display, Low internal storage
Conclusion: The Archos 50 Platinum pushes the boundaries of its price point and takes dual-SIM phones in a new, entertaining direction. It is still plagued by nagging issues though. It is hard to look past the low quality screen and the battery life is a bit of a stinker. Overall if you can do without dual-SIM we suggest you turn your attentions elsewhere.
