Both devices are powered by Qualcomm MSM8225Q which is a Quad-Core Cortex A5 clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM.


The specifications of the two smarthphones are almost identical, their main difference is the screen size and the battery. As the name suggests the Platinum 53 is a 5.3 inch while the Platinum 50 is a 5 incher. The bigger version has a higher battery capacity rated at 2800mAh while the smaller sibling has 2000mAh battery . They are now currently available locally just visited and search it on one of the popular online store "ibenta mo na".

The Platinum 53 is priced at PHP11995 while Platinum 50 has a tag price of PHP9995 which seems to be a bit expensive when compared to other brand with the similar specs like Huawei G525. I do not know yet how much it will cost thru Search Commercial (Archos official distributor). If the SRP would be the, would you think it will sell well?  Or you would stick to buying local branded phones with better specs?
