Alpha Archos Diamond smartphone, which is to understand

Smartphones released under the brand Archos, is it not frequently appear in the news although there is talk about. The mere concept of “superchrist” which is… But also other features of the phone are missing, including an unexpected price to more than twenty thousand rubles.

Smartphone is really worth in the area of 22 000, which is interest and desire to see what he offers, given that in this price range already have a considerable number of devices from top brands, which lead their struggle for a place under the sun and for the hearts of consumers.

Archos smartphones often act as sites for certain innovations. The manufacturer will set the amount of memory which no one else has, then come up with gestures of the smartphone that nobody used. It is therefore interesting to understand the device that’s not so common. At least not yet.


Externally, the casing is not something new and revolutionary. It is somewhat reminiscent of the OnePlus, and something even the iPhone, but first he does have more. Although not without interesting features.

This feature has become a red-orange ring under the screen that is in the same place where the touch of the Home button. In addition to the front panel, this color is present on the rim of the main chamber and the perimeter of the box, which sells the smartphone.

The rest is classic aluminum case with a slightly rough surface, the fingerprint scanner on the back, headphone Jack on the top side and charging socket USB Type-C. Vytaskivanija from the left side of the tray can accommodate two SIM cards or one SIM card and memory card microSD up to 256 GB.

Tactile Archos Dimond Alpha very nicely in the hand. It is moderately heavy, with aluminum sides and has a thickness of only 7.5 mm. It is thanks to these settings it feels like an integral, monolithic and strong smartphone.

The package

Manufacturers rarely put in the box with the phone headphones, especially if it’s not the top brands, which put in their smartphones the DAC, so they just need a good pair of headphones. In the case of the Archos Diamond Alpha we are seeing the exception, and headphones included. However they suspiciously resemble the design of the EarPods from Apple.

In General, the delivery of the following:

  • Archos Diamond Alpha
  • charging cable
  • power adapter
  • headphones
  • paperclip to eject
  • paper materials

Nice features interface

Pleasant interface, about which I spoke earlier, include the function “superchrist” and the feature “gesture control”. This is the case when a manufacturer really tried and was surprised by the large number of nice chips, though not always unique.

Function “Superscript”, in addition to the classical method, allows you to make screenshots by holding your finger on the fingerprint scanner located on the rear wall. Moreover, it is possible to make not just a normal screenshot, as it happens, if you press the volume and Power, and makes the right choice. You can just make the screen in the form of any figure, and you can make an elongated picture when scrolling your finger to the screen, and the system itself it will stick. In addition, you can even do a full screencast.

Gesture control offers even more connectivity options. Among them we can find the following:

  • the transition between apps, swipe from edge of screen
  • output to external screen swipe from the corner
  • memory double swipe from the corner
  • adjust the brightness with two fingers on the screen

For a better understanding of how this works, there is demonstration mode.

There are still some options, but they should not stop there, as they are in other menu items and are found in most smartphones on Android.


By and large, claim the screen is only one. It is not as bright as I would like. In the bright sun to use it will not be easy, and the automatic brightness change while running is very aggressive and reduces the brightness value to such a value that the use becomes impossible. That is why the first thing I turned off the automatic adjustment and just put the backlight on maximum.

If you do not find fault with brightness, the display is good. It’s the old IPS with a diagonal of 5.2” and FullHD resolution. The classic aspect ratio, namely 16:9. No bezremontnoy is not in sight, so the Archos Diamond Alpha can be called a smartphone for those who love the classics. The more that such displays are getting smaller, and even the most budget models start equipped with “extended” displays.


At the core of performance lies a 652 Snapdragon processor with graphics Adreno 510. Memory 4 GB internal 64 GB, but the expansion possible using memory cards with storage capacity up to 256GB.

For everyday tasks and smooth interface performance will be enough, but games will be a little difficult. If simple from the point of view of graphics the game will still work, demanding the frame rate will occasionally fall to values that are on the lower end of comfortable gameplay.

Everything said is not surprising, since the primary focus of the smartphone are not games. Even a camera with dual sensor probably can be attributed to the priorities of the devices, but certainly not performance.

Monochrome color camera

The main camera of Archos Diamond Alpha has two sensors. The resolution is 13 MP, and as a supplier of sensors has been selected by the company Sony. The sensors are divided between the responsibilities, just as it can be seen in the smartphones of Huawei. One sensor takes monochrome pictures as they are clearer, and the second “paints” them in accordance with the real colors.

This approach is a plus, and this leads to the fact that the pictures do come out well, but sometimes you can see a small distortion of the white balance in the direction of cold tones, and indoors photos are a little less contrast than that offered by smartphones are the major competitors in this price range.

The front camera has only one sensor and a resolution of 16 megapixels, and the images on it are just normal. They do not stand out from the competition. Selfies get a decent quality under normal shooting conditions. In General, nothing new.

But the camera has a huge number of settings and modes. More than many of its competitors, and sometimes even more than in third-party applications. This, of course, can be attributed to the pluses, like the ability to shoot 4K video at 30 FPS.

Operating system

The smartphone is running Nubia UI 4.0, which allows to implement all the software features described previously. While it’s based on Android 6, it is not necessary to make a good impression. About the way of updates yet.

What else?

The smartphone is not deprived of a full set of necessary functions. Among them are GPS, support OTG, even NFC. But radio is not, although for many it is important.

Battery 2950 mAh to withdraw from the case impossible, and fast charging, it does not support. But its charge long enough. If not actively use the device up to the middle of the next day it will hold without any problems.

The results

In the end, personally, I have had the feeling that the smartphone is a bit overpriced. In almost all respects, it is at the level of the segment, and in some cases even loses, but nevertheless something in it.

Among the things it is possible to allocate, you should pay attention to not very bright, but high-quality screen and excellent appearance. The smartphone is not just good looking but also very nice in the hand.

Therefore, if you are not so important crazy performance, and the priority you give to tactile sensations and emotions from communicating with the device, it is possible that it’s right for you. Although, in my opinion, it should cost no more than 20,000 rubles, and the average price on Yandex.The market is approximately 22 000. Therefore it is necessary to remember that in this price category a very strong competition by Chinese manufacturers, which in the end we win because we have a choice.

To Buy The Archos Diamond Alpha

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666 ”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death ” (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
