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. 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.
Excerpt: Pros: -Powerful Mainboard processor -Powerful Video Processor -Excellent On-screen to button mapping -Extremely lightweight and portable -Gorgeous display Cons: -less than desirable battery life. After seeing this tablet live I knew I had to have it. The display is stunning and the on-screen key mapping is FLAWLESS. The speedy processor ensures that android games run smoothly and the extra powerful video processor makes emulators and roms feel like native applications.
Pros: App Availablity, Easy To Customize, Operating System, Screen
Excerpt: This product was designed for gaming and it performs. Every game I have thrown at this thing runs beautifully and smoothly. The override mapping for the buttons works great. Be advised that graphic intensive games will get you about 4-5 hours of continuous usage. A great addition is that Archos added their phenomenal media drivers which allows playback of any file type. MKVs play without stutter. There is a camera available but only front facing.
Pros: App Availablity, Button Configuration, Easy To Customize, Handles Apps Very Well, WiFi
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 emulator.also i got astro file manager on the play store .you will need this to move files to sd card .as a tablet its fast and responsive with good display.
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 updated firmware which was intended to fix the original teething problems.
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. I was after a competent tablet that I could play games on as I can not get away with using the touch screen for games.
Summary: alles super ich hab das Archos Gamepad jetz schon eine ganze weile was mich aber sehr enttäuscht hat war und ist das der akku nun garnicht lang reicht um wirklich mal ausgiebig zu spielen ansonsten is das Display von Farben und Helligkeit und Schärfe super und was noch Komisch und/oder nervig ist das das Tablet mit der zeit ganz schön war um nicht zu sagen Heiß wird..
