Archos Diamond S: A 5-inch, 4G LTE smartphone that won't lay waste to your savings


Archos probably isn't the first company you'd think of when shopping for a new smartphone, but the French firm is hoping its new Diamond S mobile will tempt shoppers to part with their cash. Read on for everything you need to know.

The Diamond S launches alongside the Archos 50e Helium and 50 Cesium, two 4G LTE phones that are identical, except that one runs Windows while the other offers Android software.
