    These days, Archos stuff is rebadged 3rd-tier Chinese stuff. The only work they do is pick the supplier, get the wares through customs, and pretend to be doing after-sales service.
    That’s OK though, the low-end smartphone market is booming, Archos actually are following in the footsteps of Wiko, which are hugely successful in France, selling good, not great, phones for $200-ish.
    There’s a 50%-100% markup compared to buying direct from China though. I personally buy direct from Geekbuying, they are an honest outfit with after-sales service actually a fair bit better than Archos’.
