Review: Dell Venue

 

The Android-based Dell Venue is, like the Windows-based Venue Pro, neither svelte nor lightweight. But does pack a punch.

Unlocked. Tough Gorilla Glass screen takes all kinds of abuse. Huge screen is great for those with man hands. Did we mention it’s unlocked

Android 2.2. Poor camera performance in low-light settings. Dell’s skin on top of Android isn’t terrible, but most applications are better replaced with third-party offerings

Dell Venue (AT&T)

 

The Dell Venue is a beautiful Android phone, but it's merely class-competitive instead of a leader.

Attractive. Large, vibrant screen. Responsive. Smooth video playback.

Expensive. Heavy. Some reception issues. A little buggy.

Dell Venue review:

 

Introduced at CES 2011, the Dell Venue (not to be confused with the Dell Venue Pro ) is the company's second Android smartphone. Its first go, the Dell Aero , was less than impressive with a poor design, frustrating user experience, and subpar...

The Dell Venue has an attractive, solid design with a large 4.1-inch touch screen. The Android 2.2 smartphone also features a 1GHz Snapdragon processor for smooth performance and comes with a number of extra apps.

The Venue's camera quality was subpar, Dell's Stage user interface could use some refinement and won't appeal to everyone, and it doesn't support T-Mobile's HSPA+ network.

The Dell Venue is a good option for those looking for an unlocked Android phone, but it falls a bit short of the competition.

Yes, it's the Dell Venue, and no, you still can't buy one outside Hong Kong or South Korea just yet. All we can speculate is that this Android phone is

Gorgeous design ; Surprisingly good camera ; Slick Stage UI

Camera affected by lens cover, cluttered UI ; Can't charge a drained battery from wall socket ; Backup utility not reliable

Close your eyes and imagine this: you're a tech giant that has made billions of dollars on desktop and laptop computers. You were once one of the largest tech companies in America, and today you still...

To achieve true success, Dell must now focus on hardware. It's got sexy down pat, but there are some missteps along the way that make the Venue really hard to commit to. They've got the right idea for the screen but have somehow managed to muck it up...

Dell Venue Review

 

The Dell Venue was shown to the larger market at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Though currently available in certain Asian markets, an unlocked version will be made available to the U.S. in 2011. The Dell Venue shares many of the...

The Dell Venue is a decent phone and is ranked in at a solid 'Average' rating. If the Dell Venue had debuted earlier in the U.S. market, it may have been considered a game changer due to the design and specifications. However, in the current market,...
