Reviews Word on the street for the Archos 101 G9 TURBO


6.0
When I watched preloaded movie trailers, both standard and HD YouTube videos, and played games like Spider-Man HD, the images were crisp and bright.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Apps

When I ran graphics-heavy games like Asphalt 6 HD, the processor could barely handle it at times.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
When I tested the video recorder, the audio and visual were out of sync, one lagging several seconds behind the other.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
Its low specs make it just adequate enough to video chat and take vanity shots (if your arm doesn't tire out first).

Screen

Colors were very vibrant and rich, and the device has a wide viewing angle from all sides.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
The screen itself is also responsive.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
Despite the extra element of "Turbo" and a responsive touch screen, the Archos 101 G9's internal performance was pretty slow.

Camera

As expected, photo quality was subpar.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
There is also a time-lapse feature where you can record every 1 to 10 seconds, and two video quality options (either 720 or 480p).
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
The Archos 101 G9 only has a front-facing camera.

Audio

When I put headphones on, the music sounded perfectly adequate as well.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
The power cord fits very firmly and snugly into the headphone jack.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
Despite a strong Wi-Fi connection, audio cut in and out and if too many people joined a room, I'd get kicked off the network.

Operating System

One of the most exciting things about the Archos 101 G9 is the fact that it's upgradable, over the air, to Android 4.0, making this one of the few handsets to get a scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich so far.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
Although the Archos 101 G9 now has a marginally upgraded processor and the newest Android OS, the tablet still doesn't have enough going for it.
by c|net (Apr, 2012)
Even though it runs Android 4.0 and is available with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, instead of a 1GHz like its predecessor, this tablet still manages to underwhelm.
