5 Reasons For

Very High Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a rear camera resolution (numeric) of 13 megapixels, the Archos 55 has a very high rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablets that are a similar age to the 55. Across all the tablets of this type and age the rear camera resolution (numeric)s range from 2MP to 13MP.

Chart Edit

Four Processor Coress

The Archos 55 is a four processor cores tablet. Most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 55 have between one and seven processor coress.

Alternative 4 processor cores tablets currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Archos 121[plb_3048434_price], the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-E1[plb_2593315_price], or the Asus Memo Pad 7 ME170C[plb_2793339_price].

If this SC7731G processor tablet has too few processor coress then you might want to look at the Asus ZenPad 8.0 Z380KL[plb_3062185_price] (8 processor coress and higher rated), or the Point of View P1080[plb_3351038_price] (8 processor coress and higher rated).

7 Reasons Against

Archos Tablet Computers Only Have Poor Reviews

Archos is one of the less good tablet brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all tablets.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

When compared to other tablets that are a similar age to the 55, the display diagonal of the Archos 55 of only 5.5 inches is one of the smallest. The smallest display diagonal of tablets of a comparable age and spec to the 55 is 5", the largest is 16", and the average display diagonal is 9.3".

If you want a tablet with a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the Archos 70 4G[plb_3089457_price] (7"), the i-onik TP7-1000DC[plb_3077745_price] (7"), or the Acer Iconia Talk 7 B1-723[plb_3189285_price] (7") which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G

Like most of the other tablet computers of this age and type, the Archos 55 is not 4G.

If you would prefer a tablet that is 4G then you might also want to consider the Getac F110 G2[plb_3581113_price], the eSTAR MID1138L[plb_3016200_price], or the Lenovo IdeaPad A8-50L[plb_3142372_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

Comparable spec tablets that were released around the same time as the 55 have internal storage capacitys of between 4GB and 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 60GB. The Archos 55 has a quite small internal storage capacity (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 55.

We compared this tablet to all the other 8GB internal storage capacity tablet computers and we think the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0[plb_2975569_price], the easypix EP772 NEO[plb_3067374_price], and the Archos 70C[plb_2861659_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to consider the Tab 2 A8-50[pl_3016100_price] (16GB), or the Tab 2 A8-50[pl_3056371_price] (16GB) both from Lenovo or the Acer Iconia Talk 7 B1-723[plb_3189285_price] (16GB) which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Across all tablet computers that have been around for more than a year the display resolution ranges from 800 x 400 pixels to 3840 x 2560 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

The Archos 55 has one of the slower processor frequencys (only 1.2 gigahertz) amongst comparable spec tablets of this age. The processor frequencys of tablets of this age and spec range from 1GHz to 1,300GHz, and the average processor frequency is 11GHz.

Alternative 1.2GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available that you might want to look at include the Huawei MediaPad T1 7.0[plb_2975569_price], the Bigben Interactive TA332346[plb_3055185_price], or the easypix EP772 NEO[plb_3067374_price] which has better reviews.

If this tablet computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Tab 2 A8-50[pl_3016100_price] (1.3GHz), the IdeaPad A8-50L[pl_3142372_price] (1.3GHz), or the Yoga Tab 3 10[pl_3260675_price] (1.3GHz) all from Lenovo which is also higher rated.
