Dell Venue 10 Pro (5056) Tablet Review

Sascha Mölck, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Bernie Pechlaner), 04/04/2016

Solid. Dell's 10.1-inch Windows tablet comes with an impressive list of features: 128 GB of flash storage, LTE modem, and an IPS display. At 662 g (1.46 lbs), the Venue 10 Pro isn't exactly a lightweight, however.

For the original German review, see here.

The Dell Venue 10 Pro 5056 is the successor of the Venue 10 Pro 5055, which we reviewed 2015. Both are 10.1-inch Windows tablets which turn into convertibles when an optional keyboard dock is attached. Models in the 5055-series featured Bay Trail processor, but the 5056 tablets are based on the Cherry Trail platform. Visually, there are changes as well. Competing tablets include the Apple Ipad Air 2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 10. Since the Venue can be used as a convertible as well, the list of competitors also needs to include models like the Google Pixel C or the Asus Transformer Book T100HA..

Case

Dell uses a chassis made from black plastic. The back features a large maintenance over which can be removed without any tools. The cover is rubberized, which provides slip resistance, though fingerprints show easily. The new model can't deny resemblance to the predecessor Venue 10 Pro 5055. Thanks to the slightly tapered edges, the tablet looks slimmer, even though the overall dimensions are more or less identical. With a weight of 662 g, the 5056 is a good deal heavier than the Apple Ipad Air 2 (444 g) or the Amazon Fire HD 10 2015 (420 g). We can't find any fault with the build quality; the overall sturdiness is decent as well, although we'd wish for more torsional rigidity. As is, the tablet can be twisted fairly easily.

Connectivity

The ports are located on the tablet's right and left sides. The bottom edge houses a connector for the optional keyboard dock - which we unfortunately didn't get to review. The USB 3.1 port is used to charge the tablet as well. A positive aspect: the cable from the power adapter to the USB 3.1 connector is quite long - about 180 cm / 6 feet; the power cable to the outlet is about 80 cm / 2.6 feet. It's therefore no problem to have the tablet on the desk while it is plugged in underneath. A closer look at the USB 3.1 port reveals a displayport symbol. A USB 3.1 to displayport adapter can thus increase the functionality. A USB 3.0 (Type A) port allows the connection of other peripherals. Our review slate is also equipped with an LTE modem. The SIM and the MicroSD card slots are hidden under a cover on the right edge.

Software

The operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). External recovery media is not included.

Communication & GPS 

The Venue ships with an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260 module which supports not only 802.11 a/b/g/n but also the faster ac-standard. Bluetooth 4.2 functionality is integrated as well. What's new here is easy to summarize: faster, more secure, higher efficiency. We didn't encounter any reception issues and the connection was stable 15 meters / 50 feet from our router.

Our review tablet is also equipped with an LTE modem (Dell Wireless 5809e Gobi), so cell networks can be used to connect to the Internet. The modem is optional - and only models with that modem come with a GPS module.

Our review slate features an LTE modem (Sierra Wireless).

Cameras & Multimedia

The tablet is equipped with two cameras: one webcam (2 MP) for video conferencing and another one (8 MP) for photos. Neither one is very impressive and the resulting photos are pale and lack details. We took the example photos in bright sunshine.

Image Comparison

Choose a scene and navigate within the first image. One click changes the position on touchscreens. One click on the zoomed-in image opens the original in a new window. The first image shows the scaled photograph of the test device.

Accessories

The tablet ships without any other accessories besides the quickstart-poster and the warranty information. Dell does sell additional accessories like a keyboard dock and an active stylus in their online shop for about 192 Euro (~$ 220) for both. Cases and protective covers are offered as well. The docking station hooks up to the USB 3.1 port; in addition, the company offers a combo-adapter (HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, USB 3.0) for this port as well. 

Warranty

The tablet is protected by a 12 month warranty. As always, Dell offers additional plans and extensions. 

Input Devices & Operation

The touchscreen works without any problems and reacts promptly to inputs. Both fingers and a stylus can be used and up to 10 inputs are recognized simultaneously. The well-known Windows keyboard is available for typing. Users who don't want to purchase the optional dock can hook up a mouse or keyboard to the USB Type A port. Even an old PS/2 keyboard worked just fine when we connected it using a USB-to-PS/2 adapter. We also used Bluetooth input devices and experienced no issues during use.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9354 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

As shipped, the display has a DeltaE color deviation of 8.31 (the target value is less than 3). We didn't notice a bluish hue or cast. The tablet cannot cover the professional cover spaces adequately: coverage for AdobeRGB is only 38 % and 60 % for sRGB.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 46 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
30 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.7 ms).

The Venue 10 Pro is equipped with an IPS display with great viewing angle stability, so the screen content can be read from all angles. Outdoor use is possible as well, although we recommend cloud cover or seeking out shade whenever possible.

Processor

The Venue comes with a quad-core Atom x5 Z8500 (Cherry Trail) processor. Thanks to the extremely low TDP of less than 4 watts, the CPU doesn't require active cooling. The base clock speed is 1.44 GHz, although the Turbo can overclock to 2.24 GHz. The Atom didn't maintain the maximum Turbo: during the single-threaded tests, the processor fluctuated between 1.5 and 2.24 GHz - frequencies between the upper and lower limit were completely omitted. During the multi-threaded tests, the CPU started at full speed, but started slowing down soon after that. At the end of the Cinebench R15 benchmark test, the speed had dropped to 1.84 GHz.

The Cherry Trail processors aren't really faster than the Bay Trail predecessors. At the same frequencies, the results are virtually identical. That's not really surprising, since Intel more or less didn't touch the architecture.

GPU Performance

Dell relies on the Intel HD Graphics for graphics processing. The GPU supports DirectX 12 and processes with speeds up to 600 MHz. While the CPU performance didn't really improve going from Bay Trail and Cherry Trail, the GPU performance did increase significantly: the results of the 3D Mark Benchmarks show about twice the performance. The reason is the new architecture: the Cherry Trail GPUs are based on Intel's Broadwell, the Bay Trail models based on the pre-predecessor (Ivy Bridge) architecture. 

A decoder integrated into the GPU takes load of the processor during video playback. The decoder supports more formats than the predecessor and can handle the H.265 format, which is the successor to H.264. H.265 has the same picture quality, but reduced file size. When we played our test video (4k, H.265, 60 fps), the CPU utilization remained under 10 %. For our playback we chose the "Movies & TV" application integrated into Windows 10, since it supports hardware acceleration of H.265 material.

Gaming Performance

The popular casual games available in the Windows Store shouldn't pose a problem, but modern 3D games like Rise of the Tomb Raider are simply out of the question because the hardware isn't powerful enough. Only a few games achieve playable frame rates - at least as long as the resolution and the quality are set to low. An example here is the game Sims 4.

The Venue during the stress test.

The fact that both the CPU and GPU are throttled at maximum workloads isn't that surprising, since the tablet is cooled passively. Just two minutes after the start of our stress test, the CPU and GPU had dropped to 480 and 280 MHz, respectively. The tablet doesn't get unduly warm and we encountered higher temps only in a few areas around the processor. During normal use that shouldn't be any issues. Our stress test simulates an extreme - and normally not encountered - scenario.

The two speakers are located on the right and left edges. The sound is clear, but bass is lacking. Voices are easy to understand. For a better sound experience we recommend hooking up headphones or external speakers.

Power Consumption

Positive: the charging cable is quite long.
Positive: the charging cable is quite long.

We measured a maximum power consumption of 6.2 watts during idle. For the given hardware, this is an acceptable result - although the Venue can't keep up here with many of the ARM-based competitors, which need less. During the stress test, the power draw increases to 11.2 watts, which is lower than during medium load levels. The reason: both the CPU and the GPU are throttled heavily during the stress test. The power adapter is rated at 30 watts.

Battery Life

During our practically relevant WLAN test, the tablet lasted for 7 hours and 31 minutes. The tests simulates web browsing. We enable the balanced profile and set the display brightness to 150 cd/m². Videos can be played for about 7 hours and 25 minutes. Here, we loop the short film Big Buck Bunny (H.264-Kodierung, 1920 x 1080 pixels) with the wireless modules turned off and the display set to 150 cd/m².

Overall, the battery life is decent. The new tablet lasts significantly longer than the predecessor Venue 10 Pro 5055. Only part of this increase can be attributed to the hardware. The battery of the Venue 10 Pro 5055 had already decreased in capacity by 16 %. We also conducted those tests with the keyboard dock attached.

The battery has a capacity of 32 Wh.

Verdict

In review: Dell Venue 10 Pro (5056). Test model courtesy of Dell.
In review: Dell Venue 10 Pro (5056). Test model courtesy of Dell.

Dell's Venue 10 Pro is a solid 10.1-inch Windows tablet. Like all Windows tablets, the Venue allows the user to install and use normal desktop applications. The CPU can only handle simple tasks like word processing and web browsing. The 128 GB eMMC flash drive offers ample storage. We also like the bright IPS display with lots of contrast - although the display of the Venue 10 Pro 5055 was quite a bit brighter. The battery life is very decent. 

The stark appearance leaves no doubts that this is primarily a business device. The weight of 662 g is comparatively heavy. With the optional keyboard dock, the Venue tips the scales at almost 1300 g - same as some comparable netbooks and subnotebooks. 

At a price of 800 Euro, the Venue 10 Pro isn't exactly a bargain.

For the average home user, the Venue isn't really a very interesting choice. That's true even for the entry-level version selling for 530 Euro (~$600). Netbooks or consumer tablets are a more cost-effective alternative.

Ended up in the IT sector in the 90s more or less accidentally and have remained in the industry (as a sysadmin) ever since. Always been interested in laptops - first purchase was - if memory serves correctly - a Toshiba Satellite T2115CS with DX4-75 processor, 4 MB of RAM and 350 MB hard disk drive (and Windows 3.1). To this day, laptops appeal to me - much to the chagrin of my wife, who doesn’t seem understand why we need 5-10 of them at any given time ;-).
