Chart Edit

900 Supported 3G Bands

The Archos 70 4G is a 900 megahertz supported 3G band tablet computer. Most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the 70 4G have between 800 and 2,099 supported 3G bands.

Chart Edit

3G Compatible

If you want a tablet that is 3G compatible then you might also want to consider the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0 (£84.84), or the Archos 55 (£84.11).

1080p Video Recording Mode

This tablet has a 1080p video recording mode, which is typical of many tablets that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Tablet computers that came out around the same time as the 70 4G have heights of between 3.5mm and 300mm. At only 9.4 millimeters, the Archos 70 4G is quite short compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the 70 4G.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The average width of similar spec tablet computers that were launched more than a year ago is 210mm. The Archos 70 4G is one of the narrower similar spec tablets that are a comparable age to the 70 4G (only 108.5 millimeters) amongst similar spec tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

Light

Similar spec tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 70 4G have weights of between 160g and 1.7kg, and the average weight is 590g. With a weight of only 260 grams, the Archos 70 4G is very light compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 70 4G.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Archos Tablet Computers Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Archos is one of the mediocre tablet computer manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all tablets.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The smallest internal storage capacity of tablets of this spec and age is 4GB and the largest is 260GB. With an internal storage capacity of only 8 gigabytes, the Archos 70 4G has a quite small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 70 4G.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available including the Archos 70C (£57.47) which is cheaper.

Quite Small Screen Size

The Archos 70 4G has a fairly small screen size (only 7 inches) compared to most of the other tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the 70 4G. The screen sizes of similar spec tablets that were released one year ago range from 5" to 14".

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 7" tablet computers currently available including the Asus Nexus 7 2013 which has better reviews; or the Blackberry Playbook (£55.46), or the Alpen TB7ABP which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution

At only 2 megapixels, the Archos 70 4G has a fairly low rear camera resolution compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that were launched more than a year ago. Tablet computers that are a comparable age to the 70 4G have rear camera resolutions of between 0.3MP and 13MP, and the average rear camera resolution is 5.1MP.

We compared all the other 2MP rear camera resolution tablets to this tablet and we think the Alpen TB7ABP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Battery Capacity

The Archos 70 4G has a quite low battery capacity (only 2,800 milliamperes * hour) compared to most of the other tablet computers of this spec and age. Across all the tablets that are a comparable age to the 70 4G the battery capacities range from 21mAh to 11,000mAh, and the average battery capacity is 4,900mAh.

Chart Edit

Very Low Front Camera Resolution

At only 0.3 megapixels, the Archos 70 4G has a fairly low front camera resolution compared to most of the other tablets that have been around for around the same time as the 70 4G. Comparable spec tablets that were released one year ago have front camera resolutions of between 0.3MP and 5MP, and the average front camera resolution is 1.6MP.

Chart Edit

Only 1024 X 600 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Archos 70 4G is 1024 x 600 pixels. That's 40% less display resolution than a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most frequently found display resolution. Across all tablet computers of this spec and age the worst display resolution is 800 x 400 pixels and the best is 2732 x 2048 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The Archos 70 4G has a fairly small internal memory (only 1 gigabyte) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that were released around the same time as the 70 4G. Similar spec tablet computers that were released one year ago have internal memory of between 0.5GB and 8GB, and the average internal memory is 2.1GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 1 gigahertz, the Archos 70 4G has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the 70 4G. Across all the tablet computers that were released one year ago the processor clock speeds range from 0.9GHz to 1,300GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 12GHz.

Alternative 1GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available which you might want to look at include the Blackberry Playbook (£55.46), or the Archos 70C (£57.47) which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly Thick

The Archos 70 4G has a quite thick thickness (190 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to the 70 4G. The average thickness of tablet computers of this age and spec is 76mm, and the thicknesses range from 0.9mm to 280mm.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Archos 70 4G

Released Over a Year Ago

Archos released the 70 4G over a year ago.

Four Processor Cores

The number of processor cores on the Archos 70 4G is four. That's average compared to the other 122 tablets of a similar type and age to the 70 4G that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 4 processor core tablet computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus Nexus 7 2013 is also worth considering.
