Archos SmartPhone 50e Helium

 

This is an Android 5.1.1 Phone that is thin and light but very smart in looks. Most recent phones have Quad Core Processors this is no exception, most recent phones have 4G again so does this, so what is unique perhaps itÂ's what is called Fusion Storage.

The Archos 50e Helium is available (unlocked) from the link below for £122.15 with free delivery.

Archos 50 Cesium and Archos 50e Helium give you the choice of Windows or Android for a low price

 

If you can't decide between a Windows phone or an Android phone, then take a look at the new Archos 50 Cesium and Archos 50e Helium. They're basically the same 4G LTE smartphone with a choice of either Windows or Android software, for just £99 or 130...

The pair of 50 phones debut alongside the higher-specced Archos Diamond S. All the new phones will be on show at next week's annual technology trade show IFA, where we'll give them a poke and a prod and update you with our first impressions.

Archos 50e Helium

 

This is a remarkable product for the price; a 5in 4G android smartphone for such a low price. Responds rapidly to on screen touch and has a reasonable battery life. Some of the supplied applications are not very useable and you would soon fill up the...

The 8Mpixal front facing camera is quite tricky to use in terms of getting sharp photos.

Good value for money

Overly reliant on Google

Archos 50e Helium

 

For the money this phone is fantastic. Has all the usual features of a smart phone in a quality built phone. I bought this for my 83yr old mother and now thinking of buying one for myself jic I ever need a spare.... its so cheap/good.

Its quite slow compared to the range topping phones but at the price you just cant compare... so its slow reactions etc. are easily forgivable.

Archos 50e Helium

 

Price was very good as phone was on offer. As this is the first smartphone I have had, am unable to compare it. Still getting used to using it. Remembering to close everything, trying to work out the different notifications, but that is user, not fault...

Archos 50e Helium

 

It's a nice size in your hand and I like the notifications when you swipe down and the fact it's dual sim. I like that you can also put in a sd card and merge it with the internal memory, so no need to move apps when downloading

This is not so much a don't like as a missing. The phone was bought for my son to use but while he really liked it, it doesn't have a gyro and he couldn't use it to play some games or with the VR headset he has. So I have it.
