More and more brands are joining the Android Go party, with Archos being the newest member as they unveil the new Access 57 smartphone.
The Archos Access 57 tries to set itself apart by having a large 5.7-inch screen. Making it one of the biggest Android Go smartphones around. Although it’s still has a modest 960 x 480-pixel resolution to keep the price down.
Under the hood, we have a 1.4GHz Spreadtrum SC9832E quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It might look a little underwhelming, but it’s enough to support the efficient Android Oreo Go Edition OS that it’s running.
The Access 57 brings flexible options for its prospected buyers. There’s the 8GB storage model with 3G connectivity. But if you want something more utilitarian, you can get the 16GB variant with 4G LTE capability.
Archos Access 57 also comes with a 2,400mAh battery, which is enough to last you for a day considering the undemanding hardware that it requires to power. Archos claims that it can handle 15 hours of talk time and 80 hours of standby time.
Since this is a basic, day-to-day smartphone, some novelties have been stripped down which is why it only has a 2-megapixel and 8-megapixel front and back, respectively.
