Archos 50 Saphir Overview

Archos is not a manufacturer traditionally associated with producing rugged devices. They have, however, previously released some interesting smartphones with unique features, including ones with, particularly large batteries.

This product has been created in conjunction with Logic Instrument, which is part of the Archos group. As a company Logic Instrument is known for producing rugged products, some being military grade. This involvement shows the rugged and reliable heritage of the Archos Saphir.

It is also being offered at a very reasonable price considering the specification, which is sure to be of interest.


The rugged design of the Archos 50 Saphir enables you to be an adventurer. This phone is designed for its strength rather than its looks, but it does offer something else.

For starters, it is able to withstand being dropped, up to, 1 metre onto hard surfaces. This feature alone is great for anyone who works in an industry where they are often outdoors and occasional drops can occur.

However, the design of this phone offers more with its ingress protection rating of IP68. This ensures that it is water and dust resistant. As such if you drop it in water it will be ok for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 1 metre. Or if you are in a dusty environment, you don’t have to worry about that causing problems.

For added protection of the display, Gorilla Glass 4 has been included. This reduces the chance of scratches and abrasions appearing.

Latest Technology

With its 5-inch display and powerful processor, you know that the Archos 50 Saphir is able to deal with any of your demands.

The display incorporates IPS technology making it easy to read in sunlight and offering wide viewing angles. Its resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels offers the ability to watch high-definition content and makes using apps convenient and easy.

Due to the inclusion of a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, it is possible to use the latest apps and play content-rich games.

There is plenty of storage in the form of 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. If, however, you need to add some extra space you can add a MicroSD memory card, up to 128GB.


When many professionals are on site it is often difficult to find charging points. In addition, a phone is extremely important, as it is their only point of contact. This means that they need a product which is reliable with also a long battery life.

The rugged design gives the reliability, but what about battery life? Archos has been able to fit an unusually large capacity 5000 mAh into this smartphone. This provides over two days of usage between charges.


Quick access to the internet is now essential and the Archos 50 Saphir provides it with its 4G connectivity allowing for fast downloads and ensuring you can check information for jobs in moments.

The addition of Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n gives you the flexibility you need to connect to accessories and any business/home networks you use.


Cameras on a smartphone are typically an important part of the specification as they are one of the features which are used the most.

There is a 13MP unit on the rear of this smartphone offering Auto Focus and a LED Flash. This gives you the ability to capture great looking photos.

This can be anything from a quick snap of friends or an example of a good job done. It is really up to you what you wish to capture, but having a good camera always with you is essential.

A 5MP front-facing camera is also provided, which makes it quick and easy to capture and produce a great looking self-portrait.
