ARCHOS GamePad Specs

6.0

Description

The Archos GamePad seems to be a fairly slim device with game controls symmetrically positioned on the sides of the 7" display of unknown type and resolution. The tablet looks pretty good, but its gaming-centric design practically destines it to be a dedicated gaming device with additional features. The processor powering the thing will be a 1.6GHz dual-core unit, coupled with a Mali-400 GPU, which should provide enough punch for smooth framerates in those mobile games. Now comes the fun part. Running Android 4 ICS, Archos claims that it has developed a special technology for the GamePad, which will automatically map virtual controls to the physical ones. According to the company, this should allow you to use the hardware keys with over 1000 current titles.

Stay away. Many Issues, bad advertising, Terrible Customer Services
Phone owned for less than 3 months

I was really looking forward to the Gamepad.
Was severely disappointed when I found, all the games I'd previously played/liked seemed to be "unavailable" on the tablet from the playstore.
I was able to look over this and even the terrible battery life.
Then there was the freezing issue. I should've sent it back within the first week of getting. Archos has me running around hoops trying to get them to fix the tablet(thats still in warranty). First trying to get me to pay for postage, then avoiding e-mails.
Stay away from the gamepad, many people are having issues with it. And whatever you do, do NOT buy direct from archos. If there's any issue with your item, you will regret buying from them.
