Reviews for the Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855

79.8% Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Back to business. The latest edition of Dell's Venue 8 Pro presents itself as an extremely strong teammate in our test - thanks to the latest Cherry Trail platform in conjunction with generous dual-channel working memory. However, the colleague is not prepared to work overtime.

At £366 for the 64GB version with mobile data as tested – you can get the 2GB Wi-Fi only version for £259 – the Venue 8 Pro may seem a little pricey. As a business machine though it looks like an attractive package. It’s solidly constructed, has a good range of practical hardware and software options, and it looks smart in an understated way.

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.
