When it comes to the world of smartphones, there are dime a dozen models out there in the market. However, if you are short on time to read up on all of the relevant reviews in the past, and would like a swift recommendation, perhaps the Archos 50b Platinum could prove to be quite the winner here. After all, surely one would not expect too much from a $149 handset, but the Archos 50b Platinum is a bag of surprises!
This latest smartphone from the French device manufacturer will run on a quad-core processor, and will sport an extremely bright 5” IPS display that comes in handy at all times – especially if you tend to be outdoors a whole lot, as the brightness would somewhat combat the glare from the sun. Want to separate your work life from your private life? Not a problem, thanks to dual SIM support thrown into the mix. Not only that, its 8MP camera at the back offers Full HD video recording capability and autofocus, while the 2MP front-facing camera will also sport a built in LED flash that comes in handy during low light conditions.
As for its memory, you can swap out 8GB microSD memory cards from time to time to keep things fresh. Expect the Archos 50b Platinum to arrive later this month with Android 4.4 KitKat in tow as the mobile operating system of choice if you are interested.
