Reviews for the Dell Venue 7

60% Dell Venue 7 and Dell Venue 8 review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Venue 7 could have been a fantastic low-cost tablet. It costs just over half of what the similarly sized Google Nexus 7 (2013) does, making it a serious budget alternative. One significant advantage it has over the Nexus is its microSD card slot. It's also small and light enough to toss in a bag just in case it's ever needed. Unfortunately, the awful screen makes it hard for us to imagine ever using this tablet for reading or watching videos, which are two major use cases for smaller tablets. We don't mind the low resolution, but it's the visible grid pattern that really distracts us.

The Dell Venue 7 is an average tablet with an average display and average performance. It's a good buy if all you need is an Android tablet for basic apps, but other options exist. The $129 Nook HD$114.00 at Amazon has a higher-resolution display, though it won't play all the media files the Venue 7 will. The Venue 7 edges out both the HD 7$166.95 at Office Depot and Sero 7$129.00 at Walmart, but barely. If a tablet like the Nexus 7 is out of your price range, the Dell Venue 7 is worth a look.

Dell's Venue 7 is a very affordable Android tablet that does a decent job but just has enough small items that make it just an average tablet. It is nice to see that it has a decent level of quality considering its very low price tag and it is easy to expand storage with the microSD card slot.

The $149 Dell Venue 7 provides a solid Android experience for an aggressive price. The lightweight tablet holds up well for gaming and video streaming, and the included PocketCloud app adds a nice dash of productivity. We also like the soft-touch back. However, this Intel-powered device offers mixed performance, and it doesn't last as long on a charge as top competitors.

PowerVR SGX544: OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible with 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
