  • Conclusion: The Archos 80 Titanium is yet another solid offering from the French gadget maestro: the company’s cheap and flimsy past is well and truly behind it. If you want a petite slate that doesn't break the bank, this may well be it. Your only consideration? Whether a smaller, slightly more expensive £159 Google Nexus 7 and its more up to date software are a better investment instead. We think plenty of people will opt for the extra space on the Archos.
  • Pros: You’d never guess from the build quality that the Archos 80 Titanium costs less than half the price of an iPad mini - the 9.9mm thin metal frame is clean and absolutely rock solid. It’s even peppered with ports you just won’t find on an iPad, like a micro SD memory card slot so you can add your own storage, and a mini HDMI port so you can play back your movies and games on the big screen in your living room. The eight-inch screen too holds up well against the iPad min...
  • Cons: Archos had to cut corners somewhere, and it’s clear from the images we snapped that it was saved by using poor image sensors. The two megapixel camera on the back is out and out pants, spitting out blurry, soft and muddled images. Of course, you probably wouldn’t want to take photos very often with a tablet anyway - and it still packs a front webcam for video chats too. One other minor design quibble: the frame. Apple cleverly managed to trim the sides of the iPad min...

Archos 80 Titanium

  • Conclusion: There are problems, issues, and 'missing' features when you compare the Archos 80 Titanium to an iPad mini, but that costs twice as much. Besides, despite its lack of GPS, Bluetooth and poor cameras, it does add flexible options like mini HDMI and micro USB connections. And in many areas the Archos 80 Titanium out-performs its heftily- priced rival to the extent that anyone thinking of purchasing a small tablet should seriously consider whether spending more than this is...

  • Conclusion: Selon nous, l’Archos 80 Titanium offre un rapport qualité/prix plutôt intéressant. Cette version 8 pouces au format 4/3 n’est pas pour tout le monde et les férus de films préféreront un modèle 16/9 mais son affichage est convenable tout comme ses performances pour sa catégorie. On apprécie sa large connectivité mais on regrette l’absence de Bluetooth.
  • Pros: Rapport qualité/prix, Large connectivité, Lecteur multimédia, Réactivité globale
  • Cons: Pas de Bluetooth, Pas de GPS, Alimentation propriétaire, Autonomie perfectible, Chauffe un peu

Test : Archos 80 Titanium

PC World
29 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Dernière-née de la marque française Archos, la gamme Titanium est, sur le papier, très séduisante : plusieurs tablettes, 7, 8 ou 10 pouces à des prix défiant toute concurrence et correctement équipées côté matériel. Parmi elles, la 80 Titanium propose le même format qu’un iPad mini, et est plus de deux fois moins chère. Que cache vraiment cette supposée bonne affaire ?
  • Pros: Le prix, imbattable, Finition impeccable, Performances gobales très correctes
  • Cons: L'autonomie, très décevante, Pas de recharge en USB
