7 Reasons For

900 Supported 3G Bands

Chart Edit

Very High Rear Camera Resolution

With a rear camera resolution of 13 megapixels, the Archos 55 has a very high rear camera resolution compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that were launched more than a year ago. The average rear camera resolution of tablet computers that have been available for a similar time to the 55 is 5.1MP, and the rear camera resolutions range from 0.3MP to 13MP.

Chart Edit

3G Compatible

The Archos 55 is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been available for more than a year are not 3G compatible.

Alternative 3G compatible tablets currently available that you might also want to consider include the 70 4G[pl_3089457_price], or the 101b[pl_3211718_price] both from Archos or the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0[plb_2975569_price] which has better reviews.

This tablet has a 1080p video recording mode, which is the most frequently found video recording mode on tablets that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

At only 8.7 millimeters, the Archos 55 has a quite thin thickness compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that are a similar age to the 55. Tablets that have been around for around the same time as the 55 have thicknesses of between 0.9mm and 280mm.

Similar spec tablets that have been available for more than a year have weights of between 160g and 1.7kg, and the average weight is 590g. When compared to other similar spec tablet computers that came out around the same time as the 55, the weight of the Archos 55 of only 164 grams is one of the lightest.

Chart Edit

Across all the comparable spec tablets that have been available for a similar time to the 55 the widths range from 72mm to 380mm. When compared to other tablets that are a comparable age to the 55 that we have assessed the width of, the Archos 55's width of only 72.6 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

8 Reasons Against

Archos Tablets Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

On average tablets produced by Archos are rated 66%, which is in the bottom 20% of all tablet computer manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Small Screen Size

The Archos 55 has one of the smallest screen sizes (only 5.5 inches) amongst tablet computers of this age. The average screen size of comparable spec tablet computers that have been available for a similar time to the 55 is 9", and the screen sizes range from 5" to 14".

If you want a tablet with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the Archos 70 4G[plb_3089457_price] (7"), the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50[plb_3056371_price] (8"), or the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20[plb_3139496_price] (10.1") which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G Compatible

The Archos 55 is not 4G compatible. Most of the other tablet computers that have been available for more than a year are also not 4G compatible.

If you want a tablet that is 4G compatible then you might want to look at the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50[plb_3056371_price], or the Archos 70 4G[plb_3089457_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The Archos 55 has a fairly small internal storage capacity (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablet computers that came out more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the 55 the internal storage capacity range from 4GB to 260GB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 8GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available including the Prestigio Wize 3008[plb_2792785_price], or the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0[plb_2975569_price] which has better reviews.

If this Archos tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50[plb_3056371_price] (16GB), the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20[plb_3139496_price] (16GB), or the Archos 101b[plb_3211718_price] (16GB) which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Battery Capacity

The battery capacities of tablets of a similar age and type to the 55 range from 21mAh to 11,000mAh, and the average battery capacity is 4,900mAh. With a battery capacity of only 2,400 milliamperes * hour, the Archos 55 has a fairly low battery capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 55.

Chart Edit

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Archos 55 is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's 10% less display resolution than a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most common display resolution. Across all tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 55 the worst display resolution is 800 x 400 pixels and the best is 2732 x 2048 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The average internal memory of tablet computers that were released around the same time as the 55 is 2.1GB. The Archos 55 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 1 gigabyte) amongst tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of tablet computers of this age and spec is 0.9GHz and the fastest is 1,300GHz. The Archos 55 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.2 gigahertz) amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.

We compared all the other 1.2GHz processor clock speed tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Prestigio Wize 3008[plb_2792785_price], and the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0[plb_2975569_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50[plb_3056371_price] (1.3GHz and higher rated), the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20[plb_3139496_price] (1.3GHz and higher rated), or the Archos 101b[plb_3211718_price] (1.3GHz and higher rated).
