Dell Venue 7 Tablet is an interesting device that is very solidly made, although budget components are used to offer the customer an extremely attractive price. Has Dell managed to combine fire and water, is it low price and high quality? You’ll find out in a moment.
The Dell Venue 7 is a 7-inch tablet enclosed in a 193x117x9.7mm enclosure – which is already quite popular and appreciated in size, allowing it to be folded into a pocket jacket or jacket. The small weight of 235g and gum-like housing ensure comfortable and secure grip of the device, even for a long time.
On the right side are placed volume buttons (correct and soft stroke) and microUSB port, and left slots for microSD and microSIM cards. At the top you will find the power button and the miniJack jack, and the bottom of the speaker.
Despite the fact that the housing is made entirely of plastic (without aluminum elements), the device makes a very positive impression on the quality of workmanship. There are no problems with folding or disturbing creaks during use.
Looking at the “below the deck” we will find a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 (x86 architecture) clocking 1.6 GHz, powered by 1GB RAM. At the user’s disposal, 4.67GB of data storage space is available, which can be increased with the microSD card. The device also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.
The 7 inch IPS screen displays a resolution of 1280x800px (216PPI). Unfortunately, on a sunny day, even with the brightest screen brightness, the image is no longer readable, just as it is changing the viewing angle.
The two cameras are just “for the sake of”, photos and videos of both the 3MP rear (480p video) and the front 0.3MP (VGA video) are of very poor quality – that is what one would have to look for in a modern hardware of this specification.
The battery allows about nine hours of Wi-Fi network browsing, which is a pretty good result and an 8-hour on-screen display that puts the Dell Venue 7 behind similar competition products.
