If you're afraid this big, beautiful phone might get stolen, it has a fingerprint sensor to slightly ease your worries.

Archos Diamond 2 Plus

Archos released a trio of phones at Mobile World Congress 2016, and our editors on the scene in Barcelona, Spain, got a hands-on look.

Archos was not kidding when it added the "Plus" to this phone's name. It houses 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The Archos Diamond 2 Plus has USB-C, which means it charges very quickly.

It's 5.5 inches big, with a curved edge. That's slightly smaller than the Archos Diamond 2 Note.

Running stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest operating system from Google, the Diamond 2 Plus includes some preloaded software, including Doze, which monitors battery use.

This phone also has a fingerprint sensor for extra security.

On the back, above the fingerprint sensor, is a 20.7-megapixel camera. That's a lot of megapixels. Though it's overkill, you can't hate Archos Diamond 2 Plus for living up to its name.

A 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution isn't the highest, but it should look sharp enough on the Archos 50d Oxygen.

It has 13-megapixel camera on the back and 5-megapixel camera on the front.
