83% Dell Venue 7 LTE Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Light-shunning LTE slate. Dell launches a balanced, 7-inch tablet that is based on a current Atom processor from the Merrifield generation and Google's Android 4.4 KitKat, dubbed Venue 7 LTE, on the market. Its brightness and speakers are the biggest points of criticism. However, it does a good job otherwise.

For $160, the Dell Venue 7 offers solid performance and audio, a bright display and strong battery life, making it an excellent option for those looking for an affordable 7-inch Android tablet. The $150 ASUS MeMO Pad 7 is more powerful and has a slick Zen UI interface, but it doesn't last as long on a charge. You can't go wrong with either 7-inch tablet, but when it comes to endurance, the Venue 7 gets the edge.

Dell Venue 7 and 8 review: Average Android tablets at a below average price
Source: Greenbot English
I’d suggest the 8-inch version of the Dell Venue over its 7-inch counterpart solely for the bump in the screen resolution and very slight upgrade in the front-facing camera. In either case, both tablets still give you bang for your buck, especially considering the poor performance of other sub-$200 tablets. Dell’s latest tablets are as solid as the low-end Android tablet market allows them to be. If you’re looking into a tablet with a low price tag, you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not looking into Dell’s update Venue lineup.

The Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 are similar with only minor hardware differences. They run as expected once the Android updates are installed out of the box. Other than the strange display flashing in the Chrome browser, everything works as expected with the Atom processor. There are occasional stutters in performance, but these are not a deal killer. It is reminiscent of Android tablets in the early stages. It feels like Google needs to do some additional work on Android for Intel hardware.

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.

100% Dell Venue 8 Android review
Source: Expert Reviews English
Ever since its launch, first in 2012 and followed by an updated version in 2013, the Google Nexus 7 has been the compact tablet to beat. Very few models come close for value; the Nexus 7's combination of a high-resolution 1,920x1,200 screen and a quick processor makes its stock version of Android a pleasure to use. With the launch of the Dell Venue 8 Android (not to be confused with the Windows 8.1 Venue Pro it looks like Google's all-conquering tablet may finally have some competition. This tablet matches the Nexus 7 for screen resolution, with its 1,920x1,200 panel, and has one of Intel's latest "Bay Trail" Atom systems-on-a-chip.

The new Dell Venue 8 delivers a sharper display, improved performance and longer battery life than its predecessor, for just $20 more. The refresh also makes this device the only $200 Android tablet to offer a full HD screen. If you're looking for a more powerful Android slate in this size, we recommend ASUS' MeMO Pad 8, which costs the same as the new Venue 8 and offers speedier performance, more endurance, and better software and apps.

The Dell Venue 8 makes a less compelling argument than its smaller sibling, the Venue 7. At $149, the 7-inch model is a viable choice for an inexpensive tablet, but the case for the $179 8-inch model isn't as clear-cut. Amazon has a line of Kindle Fire tablets at similar prices that run Android apps and offer better performance. Barnes & Noble's Nook HD$114.00 at Amazon has a higher-resolution screen for $20 more. The king of 7-inch tablets, the Nexus 7$168.00 at Amazon, costs only $50 more. With so many other options available, the Venue 8 gets lost in the crowd. You probably won't miss it.

It's great to see a relatively affordable Windows 8 convertible with Intel Core CPUs, full size keyboards and fast SSD drives. The HP Split x2 brings novel and useful designs to a broader range of customers, and they've made a solid product. Obviously, even the $850 4th gen Core i5 model won't compete with high end Ultrabooks that have full HD displays and faster U series CPUs, but those cost $1,000 to $1,300 for Core i5 models.

Dell Venue 8 Pro

The 8 inch Windows 8.1 tablets are an increasingly popular niche. Dell's Venue 8 Pro sets itself apart with an active digitizer for stylus input, whereas the stylus is sold separately. The tablet is available in a textured rubber casing that comes in black or red. Its 8 inch size is compact enough to fit into back pockets. Compared to other 8 inch Window devices the Dell Venue 8 Pro weighs in at a svelte 0.394 kg, making it one of the lightest and most portable. A microSD slot is included to expand storage by up to 64 GB. Unfortunately, a micro HDMI port is not included. The rear camera is an unimpressive 5 MP camera, and a front facing camera is features a resolution of 1.2 MP. This device can also be bought as a bundle with a keyboard and case.

The 8 inch screen is a 1280 x 800 IPS panel, which should deliver good color and contrast. The Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet is powered by Intel's latest Bay Trail processors, which means more than enough power for most light to moderate uses and a great battery life. Dell has reported that this device will last for approximately 9 hours and 54 minutes with appropriate power saving settings. Overall, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is an interesting device, though users looking for a better deal may find slighter lower prices from the competition. However, the active digitizer that enables touch input is a unique addition that may be worth the slight difference in price.

8-inch versatility. The Dell Venue 8 Pro is an 8-inch tablet based on Intel's current-generation Atom processor. Does the pint-sized Windows 8.1 tablet, which comes with MS Office free of charge, really enhance productivity and is it a worthwhile investment?

The Dell Venue 8 is a good-looking tablet which feels very well made, and has the advantage of the full version of Windows 8.1, so you have access to thousands of Windows applications. However, we're not happy with its screen; if you're after a Windows 8.1 tablet, the Lenovo Miix 2 8 tablet has a better panel and is significantly cheaper.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro is certainly a capable tablet and coupled with a stand and keyboard it can be a capable budget laptop as well. It comes with a full version of Windows and the inclusion of Microsoft Office is a good bonus. At AED 1299 in some shops here in the UAE it’s not too far off similarly priced Windows tablets and definitely easier to handle than some.

Overall, we were impressed that a fully working PC can be squeezed into such a light and compact device as the Venue 8 Pro, but we also wonder who the exact target market is for these 8in Windows tablet devices. The form factor makes it too small to be useful for any serious productivity work, while anyone looking for a consumer tablet for web browsing and watching videos is likely to prefer an iPad or Android device. That said, a device such as this could be viewed as a companion to a full size PC or laptop, which the price point of £249 is in keeping with. In this case, the bundled copy of Microsoft Office could prove useful.

Microsoft has finally given manufacturers the green-light to develop sub-10in Windows 8.x tablets. Dell is aiming to capitalise on this by offering the Venue 8 Pro, a device chocked full of business features. Dell proves there is life in 8in Windows 8.x devices. There are advantages to having a small tablet which can support all Windows applications, but the screen and specification could be better.

If you are intent on buying a 8-inch, Windows 8.1 tablet then the Dell Venue Pro 8 is currently the best one out there. It's comfortable to use, has a nice, bright display, the battery life really impresses and general performance is very good. For £250, it represents great value for money as a standalone tablet you are going to use for everyday tasks. We still have our niggling issues most of which are levelled at the operating system more than anything else. Until Microsoft sort out scaling issues for the traditional desktop mode, Microsoft Office is difficult to use without an additional keyboard. That means investing more pushing the price closer to £300 if you go for Dell's official option.

There aren’t many tablets that offer what the Dell Venue 8 Pro does: It’s an inexpensive device that can run mobile-friendly apps as well as the same apps you might run on your desktop or notebook PC. There’s an option for a pressure-sensitive pen which lets you jot handwritten notes in OneNote, enter text with handwriting recognition, or draw in art and graphics apps. And it’s cheap.

Bottom line here, the Dell Venue 8 Pro appears to be a decent value for the asking price. We do have to admit though, we struggled a bit to find a place where it truly fits in our work flow. Granted, that is just one specific person, so we have to discount that thought a little bit. If you are living in a Windows world, whether it be for work or pleasure, the Venue 8 Pro could be a viable alternative as compared to your basic Android or iOS tablet.

Should you buy the Venue 8 Pro? The answer isn't exactly "yes," and it isn't exactly "no." It's "wait." Wait for Dell to issue some firmware updates to address the aggressive auto-brightness settings and the flaky pen performance. And wait for more of these 8-inch Windows tablets to start shipping.

The Dell Venue Pro 8 will never replace your laptop, but that’s not the point. For $300, you get full Windows in a mini tablet, and despite the low price, it’s not cheaply done. It’s well built, performs well, and will run all day on battery. The only big caveats are the lack of ports and the half-baked active pen.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro is much easier to recommend than older Atom tablets. It can actually perform multimedia tasks in a reasonable amount of time, but still manages to excel at battery life. It fits easily in the hand, and is more portable than the 10-inch tablets we've seen up until now. It's got a much better screen than the muddy one on the 8-inch Acer Iconia W3, so it's easier on the eyes. That said, while recommended for ultramobile users who don't need a lot of local storage, the Dell Venue 8 Pro doesn't quite earn an Editors' Choice for two reasons: The Venue 8 Pro's base model is still a bit short on storage, and we haven't seen enough 8-inch Windows tablet competitors to unequivocally award the Venue 8 Pro an EC.

For those wanting a highly portable tablet that features the full Windows 8.1 operating system, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is a solid choice. Performance is quite surprising thanks to the new Atom processor and its size means that it can be held with one hand much better than larger 10-inch tablets. Even the limited storage can be dealt with thanks to the microSD card slot.

Dell Venue 11 Pro

The Dell Venue 11 Pro comes with a 10.8-inch screen which is a little bigger than other gadgets of its class but is surprisingly thin; only measuring 7 by 11 by 0.4 inches in dimensions. The tablet alone only weighs close to 0.8 kilograms and 1.5 kilograms with docking. Charging the tablet itself should not be an issue as it comes with a microUSB port made for this purpose.

The most attractive feature of this tablet is its amazing 1920 by 1080 resolution which definitely puts it at the top in terms of resolution. The display itself is bright and clear as it uses an IPS panel. The device also utilizes an Intel Atom Z3770 processor with Intel HD graphics. So, it offers the best display quality among Atom devices. It comes with 2GB memory that may seem a little low, but should be sufficient for normal business usage. The tablet comes with a 64GB solid-state drive (SSD) and if additional storage is needed, a microSD card can be used.

Last but not least, a battery life is also important. The Venue 11 Pro features a 32Wh battery which gives about 9 hours of battery life. This more than enough for a normal business day and the battery is swappable to boot. All in all, the Venue 11 Pro is the perfect replacement for a mobile tablet as well as a docking laptop and definitely a tablet made for business.

Therefore, it's no surprise that the Venue 11 Pro (7139) is our new Editors' Choice for high-end business tablets, replacing the Latitude 10.

95% Dell Venue 11 Pro with Travel Dock: Outstanding laptop
Source: Zdnet.com English
I really like the Venue 11 Pro as a tablet, and especially as a laptop with the Travel Dock. Out of the 20-plus Windows laptops and hybrids I have tested, the Dell Venue 11 Pro is the best, by far. It’s just the right size as a tablet, and indistinguishable from a “real” laptop with the Travel Dock. Dell has nailed it perfectly.

The $1,080 Dell Venue 11 Pro impresses with its attractive design and sheer versatility, and businesses will appreciate the addition of the fingerprint and Smart Card readers. We also like the vivid, 10.8-inch display. However, this tablet simply doesn't offer the performance we would expect at the price.

60% Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows 8
Source: Digital Versus English
The Dell Venue 11 Pro has a nice body with excellent manufacturing, an outstanding screen and long battery life. Unfortunately, all this is countered by an extremely lightweight processor and GPU, giving it performance that falls several notches below Microsoft's Surface Pro 2, a rival that provides a true laptop + tablet experience for the same price.

Review: Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows tablet
Source: Gizmag English
Dell has put together an outstanding piece of kit here. The recommended UK retail price of £790 (US$1,049.99 in the US) for the i5-powered version, which is more expensive than both the Surface Pro 2 and comparable iPads. If you're looking for a device with which you can breeze through work without compromising on multimedia playback support then this has to be right up there. The prospect of Dell following up the Venue 11 Pro with any significant upgrades is mouthwatering.

The Venue 11 Pro is a good tablet thanks to its screen quality, versatile design and reasonable processor, and its lower prices make it a tempting alternative to the Surface Pro, even though Microsoft’s machine has a faster processor and more stylish design. If you’re willing to drop the specification, the Venue becomes better value.

80% Dell Venue 11 Pro review A Full HD Windows 8.1 tablet that's a blend for business brilliance
Source: Techradar English
The Dell only falls down in a couple of areas. Its 2MP front camera is only suitable for Skype calls, and the 8mp rear shooter produces shots that are a little too dark for our liking. And, when it comes to audio, there's little to shout about: the Venue's stereo speakers have good volume but tinny high-hats and a muddy mid-range. The second battery pack available in the Venue's optional keyboard adds welcome longevity, and the Venue 11 Pro still works out at good value when compared to the Surface and its equivalent accessory. It's a versatile tablet that'll be at home in the office, but we'd still consider a similarly-sized Ultrabook if a keyboard was crucial.

90% Dell Venue Pro 11 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
There’s no doubt that the Dell is a capable rival for the Surface Pro 2 at the high-end of the Windows 8 tablet market thanks to its sturdy build quality and versatile design, and its Core i5 processor and 1080p screen are easily good enough to get most jobs done – even if they’re bettered by Microsoft’s hardware. If you just need a tablet, there’s no doubt Dell offers better deals: the £699 Core i5 model and £629 Core i3 version both come with 128GB of storage space and are both cheaper than the most affordable Surface Pro 2, which costs £719 but only has a 64GB SSD.

Dell Venue 11 Pro review: Tablet plus accessories makes three good devices
Source: PC World English
Dell’s Venue 11 Pro ups the ante in the hybrid arena, thanks to is versatile accessories. The hardware isn’t strong enough for hardcore games or producing the next great animated short, but its three combinations were more than adequate for my entertainment and routine computing needs.

The Venue 11 Pro is a great concept, and we can truly imagine it finding a happy home in many a mobile worker's bag. Its replaceable battery is its ultimate selling point, and it performed very well in all the office tasks we threw at it. But questionable screen quality, odd keyboard dock design and the occasional software glitch tarnishes the experience somewhat and makes us question whether the device has the build quality to survive life in the real world.

The Dell Venue 11 Pro is a little bit tablet and a little bit ultraportable, but it's all business. For $499 you get a tablet with full Windows 8.1 (not the Surface 2's limited Windows RT) and 8 hours of battery life, in an elegant, yet eye-catching frame. We also appreciate the multiple docking options.

By focusing on the business market with the Venue 11 Pro Dell has sensibly avoided any comparisons with Android, iOS and even Windows RT tablets. Instead, the Venue 11 Pro’s main rival is Microsoft’s own Surface Pro 2, although the Surface Pro 2 costs almost twice as much as the Venue 11 Pro. If you fancy the Venue 11 Pro it might be a good idea to invest in the keyboard dock, as the touchscreen simply is best used for typing a quick email and web browsing rather than working on involved MS Office documents. Even so, for sheer flexibility, the Venue 11 Pro provides a good alternative to the Microsoft Surface Pro 2.

78% This Atom-powered Windows tablet goes full-HD
Source: CNet English
The Dell Venue 11 Pro takes the Atom-powered small form factor tablet/hybrid idea and pushes the boundaries toward a more upscale, professional product. The solid construction, high-res display, well-made keyboard, and long battery life all point to a low-power Windows tablet that can do nearly all an ultraportable laptop can.

The screen of the Venue Pro 11 needs to be easier to turn up to proper levels, but the tablet performs well for its price and is an option for business users who want a convertible tablet with Window 8. Its battery life was also useful, making this low-power Intel Atom version a more affordable alternative to expensive Windows tablets such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 2.

Dell reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Imagination PowerVR G6400: Multicore (4 cluster) graphics core with support for OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX 10.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

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

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

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4200: Processor graphics card in some of the ULV Haswell CPUs with 20 EUs (GT2).

» 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).

Z3460: Dual-core SoC for smartphones and tablets. Clocked at up to 1.6 GHz and integrates a DirectX-11-capable PowerVR/IMG GPU.

Z2580: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.3 - 2 GHz (short bursts), a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 based GPU clocked at 400 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.

Z3740D:

SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.

Intel Core i3:

4020Y: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (no Turbo Boost). Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4200 and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.


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.

8.0: This is a very small format, 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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.295 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.

1.5 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


74.35%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
