ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus: a premium phone that costs just £200!

Often we worry ourselves to bits on whether we should splurge on new smartphones with features that few can rival, but sometimes stop ourselves with the hope that someday a new phone will arrive that will be brilliant and light on the wallet too!

ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus is one such phone. Priced at just £199, the phone lets you enjoy tonnes of memory and storage as well as the latest features that only flagship phones can offer.

Launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus is as big as iPhone 6s Plus but as capable as Google Nexus 6P or Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge phones. The phone sports a 5.5" Full HD display which incorporates 2.5D curved edges for extra viewing angles as well as an impressive pixel density of 400 ppi.

Despite being a phablet, ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus is surprisingly light at 130g and is quite sleek with a thickness of just 8.3mm. There's a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera lens as well as a microUSB Type-C port for quick charging and data transfers.

Featuring the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus is the first smartphone to offer the impressive combination of a 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It runs a 64-bit Mediatek octa-core processor along with a 2.7GHz Mali GPU that is powerful enough to handle your multi-tasking and gaming needs.

ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus packs a 20MP rear camera with a Sony sensor and an 8MP front camera. The phone will let you record videos in Full HD resolution which will not be as impressive as a 4K video but will also consume much lesser storage space compared to the latter.

ARCHOS Diamond 2 Plus is a successor of the ARCHOS Diamond smartphone which was launched at Consumer Electronics Show at Los Angeles in January. Priced below £200, ARCHOS Diamond features a 5-inch Full HD display, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM for faster gaming and an octa-core processor.
