In many ways, the Venue 10 7000 is the tablet that road warriors have been waiting for. It's powerful enough to handle most office-type productivity chores, yet nimble enough to be easily used as an e-book reader or a multimedia consumption device. Yes, the $500 base price point is high, but you get a lot for your money.

By far, the best features of the Venue 10 7000 over its competitors is a better sound system and longer battery life, plus a screen that can project a gorgeous picture with the best of them. That said, this tablet is better left to regular usage – like watching movies and browsing the web – than a demanding daily work load. But wasn't productivity the point?

The Dell Venue 10 7000's lackluster battery life, anemic performance and dim screen make it feel somewhat overpriced (especially when fully equipped), and a disappointing follow-up to the Venue 8 7000. And then there's Android. Google's mobile OS is great for phones and media consumption devices, but when compared with Windows tablets in terms of real productivity and split-screen multitasking, it just doesn't measure up right now.

What we can say is that this tablet in its current state is wildly impressive. If you can tolerate the uncertainty surrounding future upgrades, the Venue 10 7000 is arguably the best all-around large Android tablet out there today -- and one I'd wholeheartedly recommend.

Model: The Dell Venue 10-7000 is designed to impress with its slim lined appearance and feature packed capabilities. There are several ways users could position the tablet when it is attached to the external keyboard. Common useful modes such as the traditional laptop mode for typing enhancement and the reverse mode to enable easy touchscreen access will definitely come in handy. Located at the left side of the tablet is a tubular hinge, which houses the speakers and the docking mount and also functions as an ergonomic means for holding the device. The entire device comes in dark gray with an elegant semi-matte texture.
Display on the Dell Venue 10-7000 is a 10.3 inch WQXGA OLED panel with multi-touch. Colors are superb with high contrast and brightness. The Android 5.0.2 Lollipop tablet comes with an Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at 2.33 GHz, 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM, an Intel HD Graphics and 16 GB eMMC internal storage. There is a tile-styled detachable keyboard that can be easily attached to the tablet using magnets. The 597 g Dell Venue 10-7000 comes with Bluetooth 4.1, a microSD card reader, which supports up to 512 GB, micro-B USB 2.0 and two cameras. Audio quality on the tablet is impressive with the immersive stereo speaker setup.
Imagination PowerVR G6430: Multi core (4 cluster) graphics card for ARM processors that supports OpenGL 4.x and ES 3.0
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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).
Z3580: Quad-core SoC for smartphones and tablets. Clocked at up to 2.33 GHz and integrates a DirectX-11-capable PowerVR/IMG GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
