User Reviews 1 User Reviews I think the stock Android software works well. The battery life exceeded the advertised amount, which is great. Playing HD video through the HDMI-out was an unexpected plus. However, the build quality is quite poor. The back panel creaks and dents easily which affects the display. Other reviewers have noticed this issue too.
Personally the average build quality doesn't bother me too much for the price. The viewing angles of the 8-inch 1024x768 display impress me more than an iPad 2, especially considering the Archos 80 G9 costs over €200 less.
User Reviews 2 The tablet has good specs like a 1GHz dual-core CPU and full 1080p HDMI output. I got the 8GB flash memory version but larger storage options are available too.
Unboxing the tablet, I found the standard accessories like manuals, cables, and adapters. The tablet itself looks nice with an 8-inch screen and kickstand built-in. Multiple ports allow external storage expansion.

User Reviews 3 We've got the Archos 80 G9, an 8-inch tablet designed for those on a budget. It runs on Honeycomb, has a 1 GHz dual-core processor, and comes in 16 GB or 8 GB versions.
Archos is known for video playback, and the 80 G9 doesn't disappoint. With specialized UI and codec support, it's a fast and reliable tablet. The screen quality is good, and multiple people can watch comfortably.
