ARCHOS has recently introduced, their first line of Android Smartphones with 3 different models from 3.5" to 5.3". According to the press release:

"The flagship device, the ARCHOS 50 Platinum, features a stunning 5.0 inch full black IPS display paired with a quad-core CPU at 1.2GHz and an 8MP camera. Enduser will have an experience similar to a Samsung Galaxy S3 for half the price."

Actually, we would not take this assumption for granted, as we think the Samsung Galaxy SIII and ARCHOS 50 Platinum smartphones can hardly be compared, their hardware is really different, from the CPU to the screen (Samsung model has about 2x more pixels) both offer different performance and features which probably result in a really different user experience, at a different price.

On paper, there is a significant speed difference for processors based on ARM Cortex-A5 and ARM Cortex-A9 architecture. Wikipedia indicates 1.57 DMIPS / MHz (per core) on the A5, while 2.50 DMIPS/MHz/core are announced on the the ARM Cortex-A9. Other factors have great influence…
