Dell Venue 7

 

Dell's Venue 7 is an inexpensive Android tablet that is upstaged by more capable options from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Great bargain. Loud speaker. Simple, minimal design

Poor cameras. Higher-resolution options are available in the $150 price range

There's no real gold standard for sub-$200 tablets. For a few more dollars, the Editors' Choice Google Nexus 7 is available, hitting the sweet spot of price and performance. With options like the reader-friendly Nook HD and the media-centric Kindle...

Dell Venue 7 review

 

Editors' note: The Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 are similar devices in 7- and 8-inch models that only differ in camera specs, so their reviews might look familiar.

The Dell Venue 7 starts at $149 and features a pure Android 4.2.2 operating system. It's lightweight, houses a microSD card expansion, and performs smoothly.

Larger games take a while to load, the touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, and battery life only lasts about a day.

The Dell Venue 7 offers a simple design and smooth performance for the right price, but the Nexus 7 is a significant upgrade for not much more.

Dell Venue 7 (2014)

 

Dell's refresh of its 7-inch Venue tablet makes it a tempting choice for budget-conscious shoppers. The device features an upgraded Intel Atom Z3460 processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of flash memory for just $160. While not much has changed on the...

Dell Venue 7 LTE Tablet Review

 

Light-shunning LTE slate. Dell launches a balanced, 7-inch tablet that is based on a current Atom processor from the Merrifield generation and Google's Android 4.4 KitKat, dubbed Venue 7 LTE, on the market. Its brightness and speakers are the biggest...

High graphics power, Expandable storage, High-speed LTE, ac-WiFi, 20 GB Dropbox storage (one year), Long battery runtimes and a decent performance. Besides that, cutting-edge communication modules are installed

Pressure sensitive display bezel, Few sensors, No App2SD support, Weak speakers, A slightly higher brightness and more homogeneous illumination would have certainly contributed to the otherwise great screen

Review: Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8, Android tablets with Intel inside

 

There are lots of Android tablets to choose from, ranging from the inexpensive to big bucks. These two tablets from Dell are light on the wallet and have a unique feature.

Reasonably priced ; Solid construction ; Good displays

Dell's Chromebook 11 offers sturdy but stylish design, reasonable performance and good battery life. Screen quality is the only significant drawback, unless you must have an Ethernet port. If you're comfortable living entirely online in the browser,...
