A Review on Dell Venue 7
The market of tablets is growing day by day, and after some real good products from Apple, Google, Sony, Asus, and Microsoft, even Dell has entered the competition. Dell has finally lifted off the curtains from two of its most anticipated tablets, Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8. The two tablets share almost the same configurations, but there are a few major differences involving screen size and inbuilt features. If you want to have a closer look at the Dell Venue 7, this post is surely going to help you.
The 7 inch tab runs on Intel dual core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz and contains Android Jellybean i.e. Android 4.2.2 as its operating system. This is not the latest version available in the market, but Dell seems to have planned to launch other new version updates later this year.
Let’s throw some light over the specifications of Dell Venue 7.
- Operating System: Android 4.2.2
- Size: 7.6 X 4.6 X 0.38 inches
- Display: 7 inches (1200 X 800 pixels)
- Weight: 8.3 ounces
- Processor: Intel dual core 1.6 GHz Z2560 Clover trail plus processor
- RAM: 2GB
- Internal Memory: 16 GB
- Memory Extension support: Yes, via micro SD card
- Primary Camera: 3 MP Rear
- Secondary Camera: 0.3 MP front
- Battery: 4100 mAh
- WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth: Bluetooth v4.0
- GPS: Yes
- Other connectivity options: Integrated HSPA+ modem
The device seems to be power packed on paper specifications, but the actual performance could be measured only when it is released for the masses. Let’s have a look over Pros and Cons of the device.
- Display: The device packs a resolution of 1200 X 800 pixels on just a 7 inch screen size. This means that it would offer beautiful pixel resolution owing to better ppi.
- Battery: The battery here is simply enormous with 4100 mAh. We have seen how smartphone as well as tablet users have struggled due to juicing down of their batteries. Dell says that the battery is good enough for about 10 hours of normal usage.
- Processing Capabilities: The dual core processor in the tablet is supported by 2 GBs of RAM resulting in good processing abilities.
- Reliability: Dell laptops are well known for their durability and the company has made sure to maintain its name in this section too.
- Operating System: While most of the devices being launched this week, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Round, etc. are running on Android 4.3 out of box, Dell still has stuck to Android 4.2.2. Google has already announced the plans for the new Android 4.4 Kitkat, which would be launched with the upcoming Nexus. If Dell fails to bring out the updates in time, which is very likely to happen, the users would soon feel outdated and neglected.
- Camera: People today have become addicted to high end featured gadgets. Dell has simply kept the front facing camera, the one you would use for video calls, to 0.3 MP. If you are looking for a better quality under low light conditions, you might be missing some fun here.
Dell Venue 7 is now available to buy at the web shopping portal of Dell. It will cost you $150, which is a good price for a tablet with this specs. It will give a stiff competition to Nexus 7 and Lenovo A1000. Let’s see if it could get Dell some share of the already crowded tablet market.
