Archos 50d Helium 4G Dual SIM is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone Archos 50d helium This is my third Archos phone and my second 50d Helium, only replaced my last one as I smashed the LCD. Great camera great phone and two sim cards so I use one contract number and one Payg number. Been using this model phone for years and no problems. Please note if you smash the screen no one will repair it not even Archos they just say send it back and we will give you discount on your next phone!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value Smartphone... I've had this phone everyday for a month now, and I must admit it is decent phone. Despite the small on-board memory, you are able to expand it. I sadly was unable to as my device didn't read either of the two SD cards I purchased. Also the camera is extremely poor even though it is advertised as 13mp. To summarise, in my experience this device has held up pretty well with my heavy use, and the battery could easily last a full day.On the other hand, the camera does not perform well and the memory just isn't enough for most people, especially went the device refuses to read any SD card you may use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont get it wet Phone only lasted 6 days.. phone was in my back pocket and fell into the toilet... my previous phones have been OK when this happened before .. The back cover on the Archos is not as tight as on my other phones.. the back cover just has tabs along the edge rather than a tight lip all around the edge. I had only read the warranty on receipt that says phone is not covered if it gets wet. Dried it out with rice and humidifier pellets but broken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this phone!!! At first I was very happy with this phone but after 2 months it started to heat up then shut down. Then it started doing it all the time and cut out during calls so I took it back to carphone warehouse who told me this was an online offer and they don't repair that make of phone!!!! I bought it from them because even though I had never heard of the make I knew if anything went wrong I could take it back to carphone warehouse and get it fixed!! But I have had to deal with ARCHOS direct and it's been a nightmare. I sent it back a month ago and I still haven't got a replacement- they said it could take longer and they don't know when!! No-one gives a toss and I'm £120 down and without a phone. I should have bought a known make.
