While the world waits for an iPad mini Retina or similar, that gadget's 1024 x 768 pixel resolution is standard on its rivals, too, but it's worth briefly considering the maths.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

While many smartphones now boast 16:9 screens, even the iPhone 5, the Archos 80 Titanium and all of its rivals have remained with a 4:3 aspect ratio screen.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
Although it doesn't negatively affect usability at this small size, it could be argued that the low resolution of the screen is an issue.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The viewing angle was wider than we'd expected during our generally very enjoyable video test.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Apps

Lossless FLAC music files are supported, as are MP3 and M4A files, but little else.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The Archos 80 Titanium offers full, unrestricted to Google Play, and it's also possible to load up apps from other sources.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
Here, Google Now is fully integrated - complete with microphone icon in the top-left of the screen - and other Google-made apps such as Gmail, YouTube and Maps are all part of the jigsaw.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Operating System

The Archos Music app is also far better than the vanilla Android experience, although once again the file format support is only mildly impressive.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
A standard Android 4.1 Jelly Bean experience rules on the Archos 80 Titanium, and though it may not be the very, very latest 4.2 specification, there's little difference in practice.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
There is no native support on Android tablets for ebooks of any format, though there are myriad app choices on the Google Play Store, such as Ebook Reader or the dedicated Kindle or Kobo apps if you have an account or similarly-branded device.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Camera

The camera is where the Archos 80 Titanium really lets itself down, although for a tablet clearly aimed at being used around the house, perhaps it's an area that Archos decided to cut out to achieve a truly rock- bottom price.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
Situated almost directly behind on the rear, the camera here is a mere 2MP quality, and produces pictures imbued with blockiness, softness and dull.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
A poor battery and even worse camera will hamper its attractiveness to anyone wanting a tablet on the move, as will the use of a proprietary power cable.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)

Ports

It also has Micro-USB and Mini-HDMI ports.
by c|net (Jan, 2013)
Besides, despite its lack of GPS, Bluetooth and poor cameras, it does add flexible options like mini HDMI and micro USB connections.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The audio within sample AVC HD files we used wasn't supported, though.
