The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That 55S 32 Go looks really small.Indeed, with its 5.2 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.

We found out that this 55S 32 Go doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 3000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Archos has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.

Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Archos has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.This model thus has only one objective.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this 55S 32 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.With a definition of only 8 Mp, you will have lower quality images.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
