for those who claim knoldege in octa-core proccesers,archos the company has already said that is working four cores with speed up to 1.7 is enugh to handle every case in the phone and the other 4 cores with speed up to 1 g will work only for littel jops to save battery life and other phone recourses
Android Man, 23 Oct 2014Its a dual quad core. Has it 8 cores on one chip no. Does all 8 cores run at once. no. so is i... moreIt's 8 cores on a die. But yes, the "disadvantage" is the absence of GTS. That dosn't make it duo quad core. It's not like Intel Pentium D processors with 2 x 1 core/dies.
Its a dual quad core. Has it 8 cores on one chip no. Does all 8 cores run at once. no. so is it an octocore. no. why market it as octocore. when clearly its not. the only true octocore on the market is the MTK8592, thats 8 cores one die. hence OCTOCORE.!!
tup, 23 Oct 2014still better than an iphone 6 and at least it wont bend lolHow do you know it won't bend? Only a handful of iPhones have been bending. Thats probably because the owners have been mistreating the phones
ShootingStars, 23 Oct 2014I don't know about you guys but i hate it when a phone has the stock android UI, it's just so ... moreSeveral factors about in-house/manufacturer UI vs. stock Android:-
1. An excuse to add in some bloatware that you don't need 90% of the time like those Samsung apps? It's fine if it's just a launcher or probably a fully skinned theme that won't eat much of your sys resource but usually this isn't the case. Only reason why most users can't notice this really is when they use a flagship with 2Ghz+ SoCs with 2GB+ RAM.
2. Storage footprint. Again related to the above mentioned.
3. Customization or lack thereof. If people can actually make say TouchWiz look or behave the way they like it down to the grains then it's fine. Just that I don't think that's even remotely possible. Instead stock/vanilla Android comes without this limitation ootb.
Best effort from Archos so far. The question is and not about the price:-
what's their current firmwares' Android ver or development status on all of their current lineup? If it's about the same as Alcatel, Huawei, Xiaomi or ZTE then sorry not even decent specs can cover that.
Can't understand these OEMs as it's like they're operating in their own RDF of volume sales' for lemmings year after year.
I don't know about you guys but i hate it when a phone has the stock android UI, it's just so ugly....The phone looks fine but they really need to work on a personalized UI...
i have a friend named basya u has a phone like this and the battery wont drain even if u use it for a year .the battery name is motolite
Archos is a decent brand, I still have its first tablet with single core back in 2010. The W Hotel in Thailand is using Archos as indoor controlling unit.
Not bad, not bad at all. This is on par with many flagship devices currently on the market, for the most part anyway. I've heard many mixed views about Archos though, we'll have to see how this device can hold up in the long haul.
This is pretty decent for what it's offering. Although the phone will most likely never see Lollipop.
