Reviews for the Dell Venue 8 7000

87.4% Dell Venue 8 7000 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Successful Venue. Dell's Venue 8 7000 Android tablet combines a distinctive ultra-thin aluminum chassis, a 8.4-inch high-resolution OLED edge-to-edge display and a current generation Intel Atom processor into one sharp-looking package. It's also the first tablet to offer Intel's RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera. In our in-depth review we'll try to determine if this is one of those rare cases where style actually meets substance.
70% Android tablet is thinner than the iPad Air 2 but RealSense cameras are useless
Source: PC Advisor English
The Dell Venue 8 7000 is an attractive Android tablet with a super slim design, a great screen and offers smooth performance combined with good battery life. However, it's more expensive than closely matched rivals and the RealSense camera technology which is supposedly a selling point isn't worth the time of day.

The Venue 8 7840 is packed with interesting technology. Not all of it will come in handy day-to-day – being able to measure distances within photos is a neat trick rather than an indispensable innovation. However, the core specifications, performance and screen make it very tempting.

The Dell Venue 8 is a tablet that I really wanted to like. From the moment I unboxed it, it had a level of craftsmanship that I have seldom seen in other Android tablets. The aluminum casing is rigid and sturdy, which is a breath of fresh air compared to the flex that many plastic tablets exhibit. It's extremely thin, and it manages to be lightweight without going overboard and feeling like an empty demo unit.

The Dell Venue 8 7000 is arguably one of the best looking tablets currently on the market. If you’re a fan of slim profiles, you’ll love what Dell has done here. The mostly aluminum chassis makes for a lightweight slate given its size.

Dell's new tablet isn't just one of the best-designed tablets we've used, it's our new favorite Android tablet. We discuss how the thin bezel and high-resolution OLED display affects content consumption, the differences between ARM and x86 on Android, and expected battery life for today's tablets.

Instead of the Dell Venue 8 7000, this should have been called "Dell - the world's thinnest tablet" to tell us more about all of its iPad-beating features. No, it doesn't match Apple's A8 chip with its unconventional use of a smaller Intel processor. That does make it slower than today's best tablets. But it ultimately helps more than it hurts, thanks to its thinner profile. This model is thin and has style, more so than other Android tablet.

Dell’s Venue 8 7000 Tablet Stands Out With High-Quality Build
Source: Recode English
The Dell Venue 8 7000’s camera is more of a gimmick than a useful tool, and the thin-bezel design brings some ergonomic challenges. But its high-quality build, great performance and long battery life make it one of the best compact Android tablets on the market today.

The Dell Venue 8 7000 Review - Intel and Android Perfected
Source: PC Perspective English
Given the choice of buying one of these four tablets discussed in this review, the Dell Venue 8 7000 stands at the top of my list. I can’t claim to have looked at every high-end Android tablet on the market so I cannot claim definitively that this is the best Android tablet, but I am leaning in that direction. Anyone or any company that wants to prove me wrong: I’m open to it.

Dell Venue 8 7000 review; premium hardware, work-in-progress software
Source: Slashgear English
When it comes to performance, the Dell Venue 8 7000 didn’t let me down, but it did make me question Intel’s placement. On more than one occasion, screens stuttered to do things they shouldn’t, or graphic performance just dips for unknown reasons. A parallax wallpaper, placed by default, doesn't move as smooth as it could. It kind of jumps to position once you've stopped moving the tablet. That's just one example of the processor not reacting as quickly to software as it probably should.

85% Dell Venue 8 7000 Android Tablet Review
Source: Android Authority English
The Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet sells for just $399, which is a fair and comparable price to much of the competition. Many potential buyers will be torn between Dell’s 8.4-inch slab and the 8.9-inch Nexus 9, which goes for the same price with many similar specs and features. With expandable storage, a killer edge-to-edge display, and a really sweet industrial design, you might be getting more bang for your buck with the Venue 8 7000.

Still, it does one of the jobs Dell needs it to: serve as a reminder that this company can make really nice things. Dell can make thin devices, and it can make beautiful devices. But nothing here indicates Dell has figured out the future of tablets, the next thing we’ll all do with these huge screens in our hands.

Dell's latest Android tablet certainly has a lot of things going for it. The Venue 8 7000 features probably one of the best displays when it comes to sharpness and color on the market and it is incredibly thin. It also brings the Intel RealSense camera technology to the mobile world. This premium tablet though is held back by a number of smaller flaws though.

We said at the beginning to take everything you know about Android tablets and throw it away, and if you've made it this far without skipping pages, you now know why. The Dell Venue 8 7000 isn't like other Android tablets on the market, though not for any singular reason.

If you're looking for a truly premium Android tablet, the Dell Venue 8 7000 has a lot to offer, including a sleek design, gorgeous screen and long battery life. Its RealSense Snapshot camera has a lot of potential but, at least right now, could use some better and more accurate software.

If you’re the type of person who wants to buy a tablet from the same company that makes the laptop your IT department issued to you, then I think you’ll like the Dell Venue 8 7000. It’s a formidable competitor to Apple’s iPad, and it’s thin chassis will at least give you some bragging rights.

Dell Venue 8 7000 vs. Nexus 9: Which Android tablet is right for you?
Source: Computerworld.com English
Honestly, the race would feel more even if the Nexus 9 were priced at $300 instead of $400. But with all things equal, the scales tip pretty strongly in the Venue 8's direction for most people -- again, with the main exception being those for whom the guarantee of always having the latest software is a high priority (regardless of the compromises that may require). That factor is understandably important to a lot of us, and it's something you definitely have to take into account.

There's an awful lot to like about Dell's Venue 8 7000 tablet. The device delivers a stunning 8.4-in. screen in a compact and distinctive form. It's remarkably thin and light yet still extremely sturdy. It has snappy performance, respectable stamina and a clean and intuitive UI with some useful feature enhancements.

I'm very frustrated here, as the Dell Venue 8 7000 is one of those gadgets that doesn't deliver in person what it promises on paper. Yes, it's the most beautiful tablet available today. But the camera location is downright idiotic, the depth camera is a gimmick, Dell Cast hardly works, and the laggy performance doesn't show up in the specs or benchmarks.

Testing: Dell Venue 8 7000 Tablet
Source: Tested English
So far, between the physical design, screen quality, web performance, and battery life, I'm really pleased with the Venue 8 7000. Unlike the Shield Tablet, it doesn't feel like a device that wants to do everything--be a gaming tablet, streaming box, digital notepad, etc. This is a beautiful device for content consumption, and as long as further testing shows that it doesn't noticeably suffer for running x86, it could be the best mobile device Dell has released in a long time.

Hands-on: Dell Venue 8 7000 review: World's thinnest tablet shows off 6mm chassis, 2K screen and camera smarts
Source: Pocket Lint English
Overall the slimness of the Dell Venue 7000 is an incremental step forward - but a hugely positive one. Get the price right and there's a lot to like here - if only the unconventional design felt a little more immediate, but perhaps living with such a tablet will make all the difference and it will indeed make, ahem, real sense.

Comment

Model: The world's thinnest tablet award now has a new winner in the form of Dell's Venue 8 tablet. Measuring a mere 0.6 cm thick, it is by far the slimmest thing on the market where tablets are concerned. This modern marvel comes with an 8.4 inch display with OLED technology, resulting in graphics that are rich in depth, vibrancy and contrast. This is because the OLED technology can display deep black while LED screens cannot.

The display also has a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution with a 359 ppi pixel density. The dual lens camera comes complete with Intel's RealSense technology which allows users to take pictures in rich layers which can be edited later by applying filters or by adding bokeh, adjusting focus and doing spot coloring. The RealSense 3D camera also offers 3D scanning, face detection and very sensitive gesture-based control.

Additionally there is a front facing 8 MP camera for taking normal still pictures. The processor in this tablet is a quad core Intel Atom Z3580 that can clock up to 2.3 GHz, which is paired with a Power VR G6430 graphics card, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB memory. The heat build-up is better managed because the processor is built on Intel's 22nm Moorefield microarchitecture which is small and handles excess heat pretty well. All in all, this is one must have tablet if you love the new RealSense depth technology.

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.

» 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).

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.

8.4":

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

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.

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

0.308 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.

77.89%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
