12 Reasons Against

Archos Tablet Computers Only Have Poor Reviews

Tablet computers built by Archos are some of the less good tablet computers according to average reviews from experts and users.

Not 4G

Most tablets that were released in the last 12 months are not 4G. The Archos 70b is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

If you are looking for a tablet computer that is 4G then you might want to look at the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20[plb_3674956_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3G

The Archos 70b is not 3G. Most of the other MT8163 processor tablet computers that are a comparable age to the 70b are also not 3G.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G then you might want to consider the Acer Iconia Tab 10 B3-A20[plb_3674956_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Storage Capacity

At only 8 gigabytes, the Archos 70b has a very small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other latest tablets. Across all the newly released MT8163 processor tablet computers the internal storage capacitys range from 8GB to 64GB.

If this Archos tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the B3-A30[pl_3827505_price] (16GB), or the B3-A30[pl_3827507_price] (16GB) both from Acer or the Asus Z300M-6A035A[plb_3826332_price] (16GB).

Very Small Display Diagonal

The display diagonals of tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the 70b range from 7" to 11". The Archos 70b has a fairly small display diagonal (only 7 inches) compared to most of the other MT8163 processor tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 70b.

Tablets with a larger display diagonal that might also be worth considering include the Acer B1-850[plb_3920753_price] (8") which is also higher rated.

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

At only 2 megapixels, the Archos 70b has a fairly low rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other MT8163 processor tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the 70b. The average rear camera resolution (numeric) of MT8163 processor tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 70b is 4.4MP, and the rear camera resolution (numeric)s range from 2MP to 5MP.

If you are looking for a tablet computer with a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might want to consider the Asus Z300M-6A035A[plb_3826332_price] (5MP), or the Archos 70 Oxygen[plb_3828804_price] (5MP).
