Good horsepower for emulators but mediocre controls and poor battery life

  • Summary: Length:: 8:18 Mins I picked this up to see how it compares to the new GCW Zero, an open source handheld designed to play retro video games. The Archos Gamepad costs the same but has a lot more processing power under the hood and a much larger screen. The Archos does a nice job emulating even newer consoles. Dreamcast emulation is smooth, and more modern arcade games run nicely as well. The old retro favorites from the 8 and 16 bit era also run quite nicely.

Great idea's only take you so far...

  • 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.

Great for emulators

M. Caroe, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought mainly to use playing emulated games. There is plenty of storage space for that. A lot of the games I am playing have built in mapping tools for the buttons. Try the mapping tools in the game before you use the Archos mapping tool. Overall this tablet performs very nicely for playing emulators. Although the battery life isn't the best, I usually don't have two hours to sit down and play anyway, so it has not been a problem for me.

Pretty good, but not quite good enough.

  • Excerpt: The product itself is pretty good, it is fast, nice build to the system, the operating system is stable and fast, the touchscreen is responsive. The screen is okay, not great quality, but not a problem. The controls are pretty disappointing. The D-pad is really bad, the buttons are too spread apart to do diagonals comfortably. Makes it disappointing when running game emulators.
  • Pros: App Availablity, Easy To Customize, Operating System, Web Browsing, WiFi
  • Cons: Battery Life, Button Configuration, Charging time
