Archos Gamepad – Review

14 January 2013
  • Summary: Overall I think the Archos Gamepad could have been a great device. The internal memory basically ruins the device, with 16 or 32GB you wouldn’t have to worry one bit about storage space.
  • Pros: Unique style and design, Massive potential if games developers adapt their games, MicroSD slot makes the Gamepad a decent cheap media player, Custom mapping tool makes certain games easily mappable, Custom ROM community seem to be working their magic on the Gamepad
  • Cons: Horrendous Battery life, Screen quality and viewing angles, Very clicky buttons, Small internal memory makes uninstalling stuff a daily chore, Custom mapping tool makes certain game type almost impossible to map, Some basic games are stuttery due to uncommon GPU

  • Pros: Preis, Physische Gaming-Tasten...
  • Cons: ... die allerdings sehr ungenau reagieren, Display, Laufzeiten, Miese Verarbeitung
