Always been an Archos fan and needed a backup phone/media player that wasn't too big. This is just the right size picture/screen is really sharp and what I like about Archos is the file transfer allows you to connect as a portable media device instead of through Android transfer or Samsungs KIE's which I always tend to have problems with in that they usually both freeze if you try to put too much on them. I bought this to replace my smashed archos internet tablet mainly and as backup emergency Phone incase my note 2 got smashed. Archos video player is pre-installed and I downloaded archos all codecs the free one from play store so have not found yet a file it cannot play. Battery life is pretty dam good if you take off auto sync. For £150 quid very nice smartphone and same dimensions as Samsung s5 so recommend getting their screen guards my favourite is Engav I think as hardly any bubbles or dust on application. I also use a Samsung s5 clear gel cover and just melted slightly larger holes for ear phones and usb. Strange how the headphones that come with it are white when phone is black.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Archos 50 platinum, is a pleasing foray into the world of android. I generally rate the Archos media products as they do work well.

The phone comes in a nice box with all the relevant equipment you would require to get you moving. It is a nice phone, looks a bit like a Nexus 4, but obviously not as solidly built. It does look minimal and it doesn't come installed with bloatware. But, this is a phone at less than half the price of the S4. It is very light and the back is smooth plastic, which is also a fingerprint magnet. It has a microSD card slot only tried a 64gb card and I could access my photos and files etc.
Music and Video playback is very good, it seems they have put effort in the Archos Media player to playback video extremely well, so this is a big plus point, you can also buy codec to play mpeg2 formats. But, it plays what I have well. Taking photo's with the 8Mb pixel camera seem to be good in daylight and you have a LED flash for night photo's not as pristine as the galaxy Note 2 camera.
It has Jelly Bean installed and as soon as you have charged it up fully and got your WiFi or connection up and running, it will ask to install the latest firmware. The firmware was pretty big file and after 2 restarts the install was complete. The screen is IPS and is very good, blacks are black and the clarity is excellent it oozes class, the screen isn't gorilla glass and you should look at screen protectors if you wish to prolong the life of the screen.

Using the phone is easy, it has a dual SIM, and you do get an adaptor of sorts to put a micro SIM in. Now, I only tried the dual SIM for a short while, but it seemed to work fine for the 40min of playing with it. I then reverted to single SIM layout.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In a nutshell (because I am NOT a tech head) - this is basically the Samsung S4 but an understandably "downgraded" version.

What it do:
+ Makes phone calls - calls are easy to place, easy to answer (swipe control) and on both sides of the line sound is crisp and clear.
+ Sends texts - which is easy: the screen is massive (more in a moment) and so the qwerty keyboard is easy to use whether you have big fingers or are all thumbs. The predictive text is the same as that on Samsung, and probably many others, where as you type, a row of suggested words comes up. You either select it or carry on typing - and the nice thing is like the Samsung, it seems to "learn" your common vocabulary, so predicts the next word e.g. you start typing "Mon...", it'll offer Monkey/ Money/ Monday - pick Monday and it'll automatically suggest "Morning" - etc.
+ Plays media - radio is excellent, sound from mp3s also excellent. It plays eg youtube videos, and the visual quality/ sound - as youd expect by now; excellent.
+ Camera - is mind blowing. Its actually better - by a LONG straw - than the one on my old Samsung Galaxy S3. The screen, as mentioned, massive, but also very good quality, so images look amazing
Camera also records movies, which - yep - are awesome quality.
+ It also has internet capability, email, and all the other usual tools (calculator, calendar, alarm clock, Bluetooth, wifi, app support, yada yada yada) that you expect to be on smart phones these days. And yes, any app you can install on an Android phone you can install on this.
+ The screen: HUGE. Bigger than the S4.

Looks like the S4, but it is slighly bigger.

Looks and feels nice, big screen and sharp picture.

The sound quailty as an MP3 players is great, very clear and sharp.

Arrived on time and well packed.

Now for the bad part:
It may be the phone I received, but It's let down with the 2 sim option, as the phone kept switching between sims, the picture is good but nothing like the S4.
While speaking on the phone, the voice on the other side began to fade, battery life is poor, lucky to last 24hrs and that is without using the phone all the time, I did not install any apps which would drain the battery life.
The phone would not dial and would disconnect even with a full reception bar.
Wi-Fi again kept losing it's connection.
