    Good: A sleek, wellbuilt Android tablet. The screen just goes on forever. Every tablet should be this thin and this light. The battery lasts a long, long time

    Bad: Just finicky enough to make me worry about its performance. The screen's a little too vibrant, like an HDR photo pushed too far. Needs a software update. Intel's RealSense tech underwhelms, and the threecamera setup is just a gimmick at this point

    Dell's latest 8-inch Android tablet is a statement product. Hey world, it says: remember that company that made crappy laptops you hated seven years ago? Well, it can make great things now. Beautiful things. Thinner-than-the-iPad things. Things that redef...

  • I would like to make a correction to the video the tablet is actually 399.99$.Dells new tablet is a mouthful, and that is a fact. Another fact is that this little 6mm mouthful is a powerful tablet. It sports a high-resolution OLED display at 8.4inches and...

    As a tablet, the Dell Venue 8 is impressive. It is small, compact, thin, well-built, has good-sounding front-facing speakers, brilliant high-resolution display. There is also a companion Keyboard Folio of the same size where you can fold up neatly, so in...

    Good: Well-built, very slim design, Long battery life, Stunning screen, The first tablet with Intel's RealSense 3D camera setup

    Bad: It's too easy to accidentally obstruct the speaker and rear camera, Despite Intel's RealSense technology, the actual image quality is mediocre

    Dell's flagship Venue 8 tablet is thin and well-made with a stunning screen and long battery life. It's one of the best Android slates you can buy, but we'd like it even more if the image quality from the camera were better -- and if it weren't so easy t...

  • The Dell Venue 8 is a tablet that I really wanted to like. From the moment I unboxed it, it had a level of craftsmanship that I have seldom seen in other Android tablets. The aluminum casing is rigid and sturdy, which is a breath of fresh air compared to...

    Good: Beautiful display, surprisingly thin and light, premium metal design looks very sleek, great battery life, decent overall performance.

    Bad: Mediocre rear camera, Intel's RealSense feels gimmicky and unpolished, Android 4.4 is not x86optimized (but Lollipop could fix that).

    Dell also sent along its HDMI streaming dongle, Dell Cast, as well as a wireless keyboard and mouse combo. Similar to other HDMI dongles, Dell Cast allows users to stream content from an Android tablet. All you need is a free HDMI port and a USB port for ...

  • Given the choice of buying one of these four tablets discussed in this review, the Dell Venue 8 7000 stands at the top of my list. I can't claim to have looked at every high-end Android tablet on the market so I cannot claim definitively that this is the...

  • Dell is on the comeback trail. Quietly, the company that used to make PCs that would make you groan with disdain has been releasing a series of pretty stellar products. After releasing a MacBook challenger last year, the company made an impressive showing...

  • Android rose to prominence in tablets on the back of budget devices that cost a fraction of the Venue 8 7000's sticker price. But there's room for a better experience, and the Venue delivers one. The Venue's overall fit and finish is impeccable even comp...

    Good: Fantastic design and build quality, Good media consumption features, Solid performance, Impressive battery life

    Bad: Challenging handling experience, Underwhelming camera, Old software version

  • Marques Brownlee has managed to score a Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet for review purposes and did a detailed analysis in the video below. He claims that this is in fact a very slim tablet, that reminds him of the Sharp Aquos Crystal phone.The slate has the fro...

    Good: Superthin design It's the thinnest tablet in the world at 6mm, Display It's extremely crisp and colors are vibrant without being blown out, Frontfacing speakers They aren't amazing speakers in the grand scheme of things, but they're pointed right at your...

    Bad: Thinness at the expense of everything else This design is all about being thin, which makes the tablet somewhat awkward, especially in landscape

    Dell Venue 8 70007.3/10design7/10hardware7/10software7/10performance8/10battery8/10value7/10I find myself torn with regard to the design of the Venue 8. On one hand it's cool to use a device that's almost all screen. As technology advances, I think we're ...

    Good: Ultra-slim, sturdy, and beautiful aluminum chassis, Low weight and small footprint, Remains cool regardless of load level, Decent battery life, Unique "Intel RealSense" camera, Good speakers

    Bad: Display could be brighter, High resolution is not always a positive, Colors are a bit too vivid / saturated, Narrow bezel makes the tablet difficult to hold, Only 16 GB of eMMC storage, Speaker placement not ideal

    Dell Venue 8 7000 tabletNot everybody might appreciate the somewhat industrial-looking design - but the Venue 8 7000 is quite a striking tablet in our book. The razor-thin chassis features extremely high build quality, tight tolerances, and high-end mater...

    Good: The Dell Venue 8 7000 is remarkably thin and lightweight with a comfortable feel. The Intel RealSense depth-sensing camera is an innovative feature and the preloaded Dell Gallery efficiently works as a central hub for photos. Its storage capacity expands...

    Bad: There's a learning curve to using the depth-sensing camera and the photo-editing software. The tablet can get hot during long periods of use

    With its powerful 3D camera and strong image editing features the Dell Venue 8 7000 makes the strongest case yet for tablet photography....

    Good: Great build quality, unique design, Sharp, bright display, Fast performance, Long battery life

    Bad: Depth camera is a gimmick, Standard camera disappoints, Design doesn't always work ergonomically, Interface and apps don't make the best use of the large, hi-res display

    Good: Pixel-dense OLED screen, Premium metal shell, Expandable storage, One of the first implementations of Intel's RealSense camera tech

    Bad: No Lollipop (yet), Odd button layout and camera placement make some tasks awkward, So-so camera sensors limit appeal of RealSense and depth-sensing tech

    Dell's new-for-2015 Android tablet is a showcase for Intel's scorching-new RealSense 3D camera tech. Attractive design, expandable storage, and one of the best tablet screens to date set it apart, even if it has a few quirks. Read More…...

  • Good: Incredible display, premium metal design, good battery life, fast overall performance, lightweight

    Bad: Speakers sound tinny, Intel Real Sense measurement needs work, small lag when switching orientation

    The Dell Venue 8 7000 is a beautiful Android tablet with a gorgeous screen and great design that delivers a number of handy features to users for just $399.Dell truly delivers a compelling tablet that is impressive for the price, but Android, the operatin...

  • Good: 2560x1600 OLED display, Thinnest tablet on the market, Front facing speakers are loud, Premium build quality, RealSense camera is fun to play with, Ability to use the slate as a PC via optional Dell Cast dongle

    Bad: Ships with KitKat instead of Lollipop

    Find the Dell Venue 8 7000 on Amazon starting at $399We said at the beginning to take everything you know about Android tablets and throw it away, and if you've made it this far without skipping pages, you now know why. The Dell Venue 8 7000 isn't like ot...

  • Good: Ultra-thin design, Stunning high-res display, Long battery life

    Bad: Gimmicky Intel RealSense cameras, Puny internal storage, Odd camera placements on bottom

    Good: Stunningly gorgeous OLED display, Extremely light, and thinner than an iPad Air 2

    Bad: Color distortion in the OLED display at lowest brightness, Intel still seems to be figuring out what RealSense is useful for

    If you're teetering between an iPad and an Android tablet, give the Venue 8 7000 a try. But if you're a seasoned Android user, there are more powerful, better looking tablets out there....

  • You'd think picking out a tablet would be an easy decision. When it comes down to it, they're all just rectangular slabs with screens -- right?Not exactly. Well, okay -- maybe technically. But as anyone who's ever shopped for a tablet can tell you, there'...

    Good: Design and build quality, Display, No crapware

    Bad: Hard to hold without inadvertent screen touches, Camera not easy to use, KitKat, not Lollipop

    When you first take the Dell Venue 8 7000 out of the box the tablet makes a distinct impression. It is so thin that it seems something must be missing. Perhaps the back of the tablet is still in the box, along with the battery.That's not the case. It's ju...

    Good: Slimmest tablet currently available. Gorgeous build. Front-facing speakers. Sharp screen.

    Bad: Poor cameras. Bizarre design for using cameras. Performance doesn't live up to the spec sheet

    The Dell Venue 8 7000 looks terrific on paper, but several odd design choices make this 8-inch tablet much less usable than it should be....

  • Good: The 7840 looks good. It looks real good. All-around I think it's the sharpest Android tablet I've ever seen. Those tiny bezels look great, and that slimness is almost beyond belief. It's not just the body; the 2560 x 1600 OLED screen is fantastic too, GIF...

    Bad: The 7840's asymmetrical design can be more annoying than a more traditional bezel layout at times, Advertisement, The RealSense cameras are a letdown. Depth-sensing Lytro-style refocusing tech in your tablet could probably be cool, but the apps and camera...

    Are you looking for a smallish Android tablet with a great screen? Then yes. The 7840 is the best one you can buy. Samsungs similarly priced Galaxy Tab S is no slouch, but loses points for its lackluster design and Samsungs TouchWiz skin. The Nvidia Shi...

  • There was a time, not too long ago, when taking photos with a tablet was as uncool as wearing a fanny pack. “Enjoying the view?” I'd joke when I saw tourists snapping away, their faces entirely covered by the big screens.Except tablet photography actually...

    Good: Slim and sexy all metal build, awesome 2560 x 1600 AMOLED display that pops, good battery life, fast performance

    Bad: The rear Intel RealSense Depth camera seems like a waste of resources

    The Dell Venue 8 7000 series is hands down the sexiest tablet Dell's ever made. It has top-notch specs, a chic metal build and a simply remarkable display that pops with clarity and vibrancy. At $399 like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and iPad mini with Re...

  • The Dell Venue 8 7000 could do with a better name but it's certainly the most desirable tablet we've seen from the PC maker. It's both stylish and has some great specs including a stunning screen. The Intel RealSense technology is interesting but we need ...
