Reviews for the Dell Venue 8 Pro 3845

79% Dell Venue 8 Pro (Model 3845) Tablet Review Update | Notebookcheck
Success. Intel's Bay Trail platform and Windows with Bing enable manufacturers to build cheaper and cheaper notebooks and tablets. Dell took advantage of these developments and just released an 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a bright, high-contrast IPS display -- for just 160 to 180 Euros (~$199 to ~$224).
80% Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series
Source: PC Mag English
The Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series is a full-fledged 8-inch Windows tablet for less than $100. Its IPS display offers bold colors and wide viewing angles, and you'll get close to 7 hours of battery life between charges. It won't wow you with speedy performance, and its rear-facing camera could be better, but at this price, these aren't major issues. If you're willing to spend about $300 more, and you want a Windows tablet with excellent digitizer and handwriting-capture skills, check out the Toshiba Encore 2 Write.

Dell has slashed the priced of its latest 8in Windows tablet to £120 as it aims to compete with low-cost Android alternatives. The Venue 8 Pro 3000 is good value. Build quality compares well with similarly-priced Android tablets. If you’re in the market for a low-cost tablet with full Windows compatibility then it's one definitely a contender.

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.

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).
Z3735G: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel (32 bit) DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
8":

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.

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

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

80.2%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
