  • Conclusion: While Archos has always done a good job of keeping the costs down, its gadgets have usually cut a few too many corners, making pricier rivals the better option.

It’s not for everyone, but if you’re an avid gamer considering a PS Vita, the Archos GamePad really is worth your attention.
  • Pros: The Archos GamePad may be unusual, but its design is not: like the Sony PS Vita and Nintendo Wii U’s GamePad controller before it, it slots dual analog thumbsticks on either side of a large screen - and it works. The GamePad seem thinner than it is, with a pleasant if cheap grey plastic design that’s Archos through and through: but all the buttons are in reach, and to make up for the lack of space for L2 and R2 trigger buttons on the top, Archos has even kindly plante...
  • Cons: The Archos GamePad’s 1024x600 display is pleasant enough for playing games, but as you’d expect with the low pricetag, it’s far from the best we’ve ever laid eyes on. Viewing angles are poor, and the resolution is far from HD: if you plan to read ebooks as much as play Modern Combat on it, this will definitely start to irritate you.

Test: Archos Gamepad (Tablet-PC)

CHIP Online
28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Archos bietet mit dem Gamepad für günstige 120 Euro eine Mischung aus 7-Zoll-Tablet und portabler Spielekonsole. Im Test zeigt sich allerdings, dass die Mixtur jede Menge Schwächen hat und nichts für passionierte Gamer ist.
  • Pros: Preis, Physische Gaming-Tasten...
  • Cons: ... die allerdings sehr ungenau reagieren, Display, Laufzeiten, Miese Verarbeitung

17 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Archos GamePad è un ottimo primo esperimento per quanto riguarda il gaming professionale su Android, ma la strada da percorrere è ancora lunga. La colpa non è però tanto di Archos, a cui dal punto di vista del gioco possiamo forse solo rimproverare dei joystick analogici non molto precisi, quando piuttosto dalla situazione non particolarmente florida dei giochi di qualità su Android.
