The Archos 64 Xenon is one of the big phablets out there, with a diagonal spanning 6.4 inches. The folks of Frandroid.com have taken it for a spin and written a full review about it, that includes camera samples, benchmarks and even a GPS test.
This model runs Android 4.2.2, only supports a 720p resolution and relies on the quad core MediaTek MT6582 processor. It also has a 2800 mAh battery and 8 MP main camera with LED flash. Its price tag is around 199 euros. On paper a 6.4 inch phablet with such a price is a good deal, right? This model comes with a plastic case that mimics brushed aluminum and it feels nice in the user’s hand.
We also get two SIM card slots under the hood and the review mentions the fact that the screen is kind of weak. It’s an IPS LCD display, that’s very bright, but the problems include light leaks, poor view angles and lack of depth for black. Red also tends to become orange on this screen, so colors are not accurate. The software is pretty much stock Android and benchmarks reveal a score that’s close to the performance of a Galaxy S III.
