Dell Venue 8 review


Dell comes back to the Android tablet world with the $180 Venue 8. It's not groundbreaking or flashy but offers decent enough performance and build quality for a reasonable price.

If Dell set out to make a decent middle of the road budget tablet with the Venue 8, it succeeded. It’s not going to wow customers with looks (unless they see the red one) or with performance. It does balance value and price well for people who have to...

Dell Venue 8


Dell's Venue 8 would be an adequate entry-level Android tablet a few months ago, but it's completely outmatched by the competition.

Inexpensive. Loud speaker. Simple design.

Poor cameras. Fuzzy display. Better options are available around the same price point.

The Venue 8 plays almost every video and audio file format out there, save for FLAC audio. The outward-facing speakers get plenty loud, but sound tinny when turned up to the maximum. There's no HDMI out, MHL, or anything else to output video to a TV....

Dell Venue 8 2013


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 8 starts at an affordable $179 for 16GB of internal storage, with a microSD expansion slot, and smoothly runs a pure version of Android Jelly Bean. Its soft, grippy back makes it comfortable to hold.

The touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, large games take long to load, and battery life only lasts about a day.

The Dell Venue 8 is perfect for the budget shopper with modest needs.

Dell Venue 8 review: mid-range and proud


Android tablets shouldn't cost much, and they don't have to. Dell kept this in mind when designing and building their Venue 8 tablet. A decidedly mid-range tablet, the Venue 8 may still pack a punch. How brutal could that gut-shot be? We find out in...

Dell’s Venue 8 7000: A striking tablet that falls short of greatness


Review: A premium tablet with a cool design that doesn't always work in real life.

Unique, interesting design that defies tablet conventions, looks nice, and works most of the time ; Great screen ; Very thin, light, and easy to hold—it's an 8.4-inch tablet that feels more like a 7-inch tablet ; Premium build quality ; Good CPU...

GPU performance lags behind other tablets in its price bracket ; No NFC ; Interesting RealSense effects are held back by a mediocre camera ; You'll very occasionally run into apps that don't run on Intel processors ; Pretty expensive for an Android...

The vast majority of Android devices out there use ARM chips from one supplier or another, but Android doesn't really care about what instruction set you're using most of the time. When you download an Android app, what you're usually downloading is...

Dell Venue 8 7840 review


One of the more exciting pieces of consumer hardware to come out of CES 2015 wasn't from the usual Android suspects. Not Samsung. Not HTC or Motorola or LG or even ASUS. Nope. In 2015, we welcome Dell back to the Android stage with an awkwardly named...

Dell Venue 8 Review [Update]


Whether you like them or not, tablets – more specifically, cheap tablets running Google's Android operating system – have come to define the mobile computing space. Sure, many users need the comfort, power and versatility that only full-size laptops...

Shortly after we finished this review Dell began deploying a software update that addressed the processing and stability issues cited here. After spending another few days with the Dell Venue 8, I was happy to find that the lag and touchscreen...

Dell Venue 8


There's no shortage of high-performing Android tablets available on the market right now, but the Dell Venue 8 isn't quite like many of the models you can buy for less than $200. For starters, it runs on an Intel dual-core processor clocked at 2GHz,...

Decent price tag, Well-rounded list of features, Simple yet functional design

Runs somewhat outdated version of Android, Internal storage is capped at 32GB, Doesn't support mobile / cellular data

Dell Venue 8 review


In our review, we found the Dell Venue 8 to be a great tablet for the price, and an excellent choice for first-time buyers.

For first time tablet buyers, the Venue 8 is a solid choice this holiday season. It’s nice to see Dell back in the Android game, and the Venue 8 is a refreshing reminder that a solid Android slate doesn’t have to break the bank. It's a well-built...
