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
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.
Summary: This isn't a $300 tablet. What this is, however, is a decent $170 one. I don't think it's meant for hardcore app gamers and they may find it lacking in a number of areas, but I think it's fine for advanced casual gamers who's looking for more than what a phone can offer.
Summary: screen quality is bad wieving angles is bad as well, battery life is even worse. it takes about 3 minutes to fully boot. lags for no reason, but games run good. if you need cheap tablet for running emulators its good thing.
Summary: Got this for playing my emulators but did not know how to get my games to run from sd card so after some hunting in the archos forums i can now play my games from my 32gb sd card .when you start your emulator look for mnt then exteral-sd then the file on your sd card with the roms for that...
Summary: I have had my Arches Gamepad for about two weeks now and I have to say I'm impressed. Its not a perfect device, but any short comings are far outweighed by its pros. I had read that the original shipped firmware was buggy and not good at all, but was pleased to discover at archos had released...
Summary: It was a close call between 3 and 4.. but really starting to become inseparable from it on the train to work now! I'm not a massive fan of archos but took the chance on this. I had recently bought my nephews a couple of Pipo S1's which have similar internals.
