Reviews for the Dell Venue 8-3840

70% Dell Venue 8 (2014)
Source: PC Mag English
In the 8-inch tablet realm, budget and full HD were once mutually exclusive; you'd typically expect to pay up to $400 for that privilege. Spending that much will still get you a great tablet, like the Editors' Choice Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4Best Price at Amazon, but it's no longer required. The Dell Venue 8 (2014) comes in under the $200 mark and will serve up all your favorite videos in full HD. It can't match the Tab S on speed or features, but it's a solid value for on-the-go media consumption.

Dell Venue 8 review: mid-range and proud
Source: Slashgear English
If you want a tablet that will do it all, the Venue 8 isn’t for you. this simply won’t stand up to a Galaxy Tab or Nexus 7 — but it’s not supposed to. Wireless charging and the larger screen are nice, and we really like the solid build quality, here. We saw about two days battery life with moderate use, so dedicated workhorses will probably see a day with this one.

All told, the Venue 8 is a solid device that punches above its weight class given its price, though it won’t redefine the segment. Dell has thrown a few nice extras onto the Venue 8, but at $179, it can occasionally feel a touch under-powered--again though, this is the norm for tablets in this market segment. If you're looking for a tablet with more horsepower, you're going to have to justify the upside cost.

The Dell Venue 8 has all the makings of a superb compact tablet: the Intel hardware racks up impressive benchmark scores and the display gives the Nexus 7's Full HD panel a run for its money. Ultimately, though, the impressive benchmark scores don't tell the whole story – in everyday use, the crashing issues and laggy performance are difficult to forgive. Forthcoming system updates could yet transform the Dell Venue 8's appeal, but, unless gaming performance is an absolute priority, the Nexus 7 is a far better buy right now.

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

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

» 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).


Z3480: Dual-core SoC for smartphones and tablets. Clocked at up to 2.13 GHz and integrates a DirectX-11-capable PowerVR/IMG GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.00":

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.

0.338 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


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. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.


68.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
