Archos 50 Oxygen




Archos 50 Oxygen Overview

The 50 Oxygen is the flagship model in a new range of smartphone hardware from mobile specialist Archos. With a long standing pedigree in the high quality manufacture of personal media players and tablets, Archos are now targeting the smartphone market through a combination of mid-to-high range specifications, aggressive pricing and top class engineering.

Power & Performance

Until recently, getting hold of top drawer quad-core power on your smartphone meant paying top-drawer prices. Advances in technology now mean that Archos can provide a 1.5GHz quad-core processor in the 50 Oxygen without breaking the bank.

On top of this, the company has also managed to fit in an incredibly impressive 13 megapixel camera (to rival the Samsung Galaxy S4) and a Full HD 1920 x 1280 IPS LCD display (440 ppi). The Full Black screen merges seamlessly with the device bezel for an impressive minimalist finish, accentuated by the thin 9.9mm unibody frame and textured back casing.

Pure Android

Archos understand the experience of interaction with your personal technology, having produced some of the most widely praised media players and personal technology of the last decade. For this reason, they have left Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean unskinned on the 50 Oxygen. You can experience Android the way it was intended and also get access to updates much faster than other devices are able to provide.

Archos has included a few of their own apps to improve your use though; along with an always useful File Explorer, a bespoke Video Player and Audio Player are included. These build on Archos' years of media experience to achieve perfect media integration.


The 50 Oxygen does not include 4G LTE capabilities (that's for the 45 & 50 Helium range). You do, however, get top speed HSPA+ compatibility, as well as WiFi, WiFi direct, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, MHL equipped micro USB for high definition video out to HDTVs and finally USB OTG. Archos even include a USB OTG cable in the box!
