Summary: As with many tables confusion rules if this is the gamepad 2 it is getting good reviews. Same problem with nexus 7 is it a 1 or two? does it download from google play store ok? would it be ok for a 8 and six year old?
Summary: Bought this for testing games on and is truly awful you cant load any top games at all its not a tablet and the controller is very poor poor and totally integrated -- no memory -- completely sucks
Summary: The Good: - Nice buttons with a good "click" to them. Feels very "old-school". - Great button mapping tool makes it work with damn near any game. - MicroSD card slot - so it can hold a lot of videos and games. The Average: - The screen isn't the highest resolution compared to other Android tablets (such as Nexus 7). - The viewing angle isn't that great. - Though neither of those detract from gaming experience at all. The Bad: - Battery life isn't great.
Summary: With this tablets internal hardware I figured that it would be a good candidate for Android development; since this tablets internals are pretty close to high end cell phones this makes it ideal for testing. Now for the down and dirty; the Archos Gamepad has some pretty bad software issues that need to be overcome. The version of Android that ships with the device is stable but has a number of features that are lacking.
Excerpt: it would be the best device ever made if the battery was 5000mAh i bought an external battery from amazon and i have now double the battery life it has a mali400mp4 (quad core gpu) it gives you the same graphics as the galaxy note 2 and never forget to buy a 32 gig micro sd card
it is a nice product that could have been game changer

Summary: pros: - gaming tablet with physical controls - button mapping software is really good - price is good - build quality and finish is good, nice box and manuals as well. - sleek and light weight - no in game lags. cons: - poor battery life (around 2 hours) - bad wifi module (on pc I get 3mbps downspeed but on tablet it goes no more than 700kbps) - very lowspeed storage memory. Mutlitasking is a pain.
Summary: Man this thing is a peace,flimsy construction,but actually performs ok,however I bought this to game on that's why this thing is special for starters the buttons are to high and hard to reach 2nd the joysticks are TRASH their unresponsive and rough (like their full of sand) I was lucky enough to be standing next to a brick wall and a trash can so I took advantage of the situation and rid the world of suffering with this wretched pos..
