ARCHOS 70b Helium Tablet Review

The camera is usually an area where budget tablet manufacturers try to cut costs, and unfortunately this is the case with the ARCHOS 70b Helium.

The 2MP primary camera lacks any kind of manual focus – you cannot touch the screen to focus where you want. As such, pictures are somewhat of a lottery as you have to hope that the 70b Helium knows what you want to focus on.

The lack of detail is also very obvious – a 2MP sensor (which takes photos at 1600×1200) is very poor for this day and age.

HDR mode is another let down – it massively increases the amount of grain in images, and makes colours distinctly cooler.
