Dell Venue 8 7000 Tablet review
Dell’s Venue 8 7000 tablet is the first device to feature Intel’s RealSense Snapshot camera, which uses depth perception to let you refocus after a shot or measure objects you’ve photographed. However, this 8.4-inch slate has a lot more going for it than just a fancy camera, with its sleek, ultra-slim aluminum chassis, long battery life and the most colorful screen we’ve ever seen on a tablet.
- Fantastic design and build quality
- Good media consumption features
- Solid performance
- Impressive battery life
- 16GB of internal storage
- Underwhelming camera
- Old software version
- Waiting on Android 5.0
The Dell Venue 8 7000 looks every bit the premium tablet, with a gunmetal-gray aluminum, super-svelte chassis that measures just 0.26 inches thin. That’s even thinner than the iPad mini (0.28 inches). The slate also looks better from the front than does Apple’s, thanks to an edge-to-edge “infinity” display surrounded by a miniscule bezel. The speaker bar and 2-MP webcam add about three-quarters of an inch of space below the screen, but their tiny audio holes and rounded lens add a dash of high-tech flair to the design.
The Venue 8 7000 maximizes its 8.4-inch screen with a top-of-the-line 2,560 x 1,600 resolution that matches the lauded Samsung Galaxy Tab S display. This is the best screen we’ve seen from a tablet so far, with more than four million pixels total.
Believe it or not, Dell’s edge-to-edge display technically pulls off two more pixels per inch by packing in 361 ppi vs Samsung’s 359 ppi. You’re not going to notice differences here, but it does contrast with the iPad mini 3 (326 ppi) or iPad Air 2’s (264 ppi).
Dell Venue 8 7000 is an Intel-backed tablet, and though I’ll peer inside at the processor soon, the chip maker actually has a presence in the display. Intel’s Sensing Assist mode wakes the screen when it detects motion. On by default, this feature can thankfully be turned off.
The back houses three cameras: two 720p depth sensors, which appear in a single black stripe, and a regular 8-MP lens. The right side has a covered microSD card slot, which you can use to expand the measly internal 16GB of storage.
a thickness of just 6 mm (0.24 inches), a tenth of a millimeter smaller than the iPad Air 2 at 6.1 mm (0.24 inches).
