French makers – Archos announced three smartphones not long ago – Archos Core 55S, Archos Core 60S, and this Archos Core 57S. We’ll be looking extensively at Archos Core 57S today. Just like the other two smartphones, Archos Core 57S is targeted at the budget segment of the smartphone market. Therefore it comes out with several mid-range specifications. Some of these specs include the 16 GB ROM, 1 GB RAM, and 8 MP rear camera. However, it upholds an aspect ratio of 18:9 which isn’t a common feature of budget smartphones. Let’s step right into the Archos Core 57S world, shall we?

In this article we talk about:

Design & Display

The smartphone is made up of plastic covering although the 2.5D curved glass at the front is different. The top bezel isn’t that thick as it houses the front camera, earpiece, and ambient light sensor. Dedicated keys such as the power button and volume keys are found on the smartphone’s right side while the base bezel lacks any occupant. The dimensions are 151 mm length x 72.9 mm breadth x 9.1 mm thickness while its weight is 176 g. Blue is the only color option the smartphone is made available in.

Closely related to the 57 in its name, the smartphone has a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 281 PPI for sharpness. The screen-to-body ratio of the device is 74.72%, while its aspect ratio is 18:9. Features such as multi-touch input, 2.5D curved glass, 16 million display colors and 24-bit color depth are present.


The rear camera of this smartphone uses an 8 MP sensor to take photos. A single LED flash is also supported to brighten images taken in low light conditions. Features such as autofocus, CMOS sensor, continuous shot, geo-tagging, HDR, and panorama are present. The selfies are taken by a mediocre 2 MP camera that lacks flash support.

CPU, OS & Storage

Spreadtrum SC9832A acts as the chipset of the smartphone. This chipset encloses a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU of 32-bit architecture. The CPU clocks at a Max 1.30 GHz speed during operations. GPU on the device is the ARM Mali-400 that clocks 512 MHz. In the software category, there’s the Android Nougat OS while in the RAM unit, there’s the 1 GB-sized RAM for multitasking. For storing files, a 16 GB ROM is availed. This ROM can be expanded to 128 GB with the aid of a MicroSD card.


Archos Core 57S uses a non-removable Li-Ion 2,500 mAh battery as its powerhouse. No quick charging technology is present to boost tte charging time.
