Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

It's a constant struggle with the Archos 55 Helium to balance my need for a large screen and keyboard that accommodate my large fingers, against the need for a small size and low weight device that would enhance mobility. The battery of this phone would be okay only if you are fine being on a constant quest for charging options within half a working day. If you are a road warrior like me then you better rethink your choice of device.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

Typing on the big keypad of the Archos 55 Helium is really convenient but later carrying a large phone around is troublesome; doesn't even fit in most of my clutches. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

More than my hobby of gaming and reading on my smartphone, the awesome graphics and sharp display excite me about the massive 5.5 inch inch screen of the Archos 55 Helium. The display resolution p is a must for hardcore gamers to get the best mobile gaming experience. Gaming or multi-tasking, everything is smooth with its 1 GB RAM. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 16 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps. The battery does last for 3-4 hours of a graphic-heavy game session, however immediately after this I need to put the Archos 55 Helium on charging; really can't do much post the session.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5.5 inch inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Archos 55 Helium. And I simply can't stop admiring the awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Archos 55 Helium. Movies and videos on a large screen are the best, the screen type or resolution doesn't matter to me much. Even typing is quite easy on a large screen, although you always need both hands to operate it. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images. Lower internal storage like 16 GB makes me chose which movies, music, images and videos to keep or delete from your phone. A larger internal storage suits me more than average internal memory as I hate deleting my smartphone content due to memory issues.
