Archos 7 Home Tablet

MobileTechReview.com
10 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The consumer electronics market is brutal and the trend is toward apps and ease of use. The Archos 5 Internet Tablet has the apps part down, but ease of use isn't quite there compared to the brain dead easy iPod Touch and iPhone. It's not that Android is hard to use; in fact it's easy and more customizable than Apple's products.
  • Pros: Very good video playback performance.
  • Cons: Bulky, missing Google Maps and Google YouTube player.

  • Conclusion: At $200, much can be forgiven of the Archos 7 Home Tablet, since it offers such a large touch screen, HD video, Web access, free apps, and a lot more. But make no mistake, with an unpolished interface and a less-than-responsive touch screen, there's a lot to forgive.
  • Pros: Affordable. Sleek, compact design. Android-based OS provides means scores of free apps. Built-in kickstand. User-adjustable EQ.
  • Cons: Poor screen sensitivity. On-screen typing is difficult. Music and video players could be improved.

Archos 7 Home Tablet

CNET
22 January 2011
  • Summary: The Archos 7 Home Tablet isn't going to amaze you with its specs or features, but its low price and core Android features--Web, e-mail, media playback--make it a workable iPad alternative.
  • Pros: The Archos 7 Home Tablet delivers a large screen, slim design, microSDHC-based memory expansion, and a familiar Android operating system, all for an unbeatable price.
  • Cons: Its resistive touch screen is clunky, the processor is sluggish, storage is skimpy, and basic buttons for home screen and volume control are missing. There's no support for Adobe Flash, Bluetooth, GPS, video output, accelerometer, digital compass, and multitouch, and previous Archos tablet accessories are incompatible. App support is hit or miss--mostly miss.

Archos 7 Home Tablet Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 June 2010
  • Summary: The $199 Archos 7 Home Tablet is not a case of "you get what you pay for." That's because we'd expect even a cheap Android-powered slate to recognize our touch input most of the time and to offer a larger selection of apps. Yes, this device has a bigger screen than the smaller and pricier Archos 5, and it's a decent media player (if you bring your own content). But the finicky display, sluggish performance, and dearth of apps add up to lackluster experience.

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: What we have in the Archos 7 is a device that feels like it has been engineered to a price. And that's the scary thing about the Archos 7: the price is biggest plus point. The fact that it runs Android isn't such a benefit as you don't get to experience what the rest of the Android world takes for granted: those freedoms are denied, unless you are happy to hunt out new apps, something the average customer won't want to do.
  • Pros: Price, large screen, microSD card expansion slot for memory
  • Cons: Poor finish to screen, poor materials used in construction, lack of access to all the benefits of Android, AppsLib seems buggy, no volume controls, can't charge via Micro-USB

  • Conclusion: Una tableta económica que recomendamos a los usuarios que están buscando un dispositivo inalámbrico fácil de transportar y que les permita navegar por Internet y reproducir todo su contenido multimedia: fotografías, películas y canciones.
  • Pros: El precio, el tamaño de la pantalla, cuenta con el Sistema Operativo Android 2.1, la duración de la batería y la conectividad Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: La pantalla podría ser más sensible y tener mejor resolución, además de que no cuenta con la tienda de Android Market.
