ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G is a fair quality Android device released many years ago, featuring a pretty big 8-inches touch-screen, a good performance 1.2 gigahertz Quad-Core CPU, a 2 mega-pixels back side camera and a 0.3 megapixels front-facing camera. That's everything we have to say? Not at all, it's just the shortest summary on earth.

The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G is equipped with a good performance 1200 MHz Quad-Core processor, bundled in the Qualcomm MSM8926 system chip with 1 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering generally eats lots of processor time, so this tablet counts with a 450 MHz Adreno 305 graphic processing unit to take some work out of the processor. The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G comes with a passable 4 GB internal storage memory, which is fine considering that it also has an SD memory card expansion slot to store songs, photos and videos and even some apps that allow being installed in the external memory.

This tablet is quite a compact tablet, given that it packs a 8 inches screen and it's just 8.39" long. This tablet's thickness , 0.44 inches, is a little far from current standards, but it still feels fine in the hand.

Archos packed this tablet with an average 8-inches display, and a resolution of 768 x 1024 , making everything look quite vivid. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G is equipped with two cameras, a 2 MP back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front camera.

The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G provides Wi-Fi connection (but it can't be shared with other devices around, acting as a hotspot) or LTE 4G high speed data connection. The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G uses a SIM card for GSM networks.

The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G packs a 3000 mAh huge Li-Polymer removable battery, which isn't too much for a device like this.

The ARCHOS 80 Helium 4G also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (3.0), GPS (Global Positioning System) and Near Field Communication (NFC), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Archos offers this tablet for $ 75, which is quite close to other similar tablets. If you buy this tablet you will also get USB cable, quick start guid (QSG) and power adapter.
