PROS

  • With a sleek, lightweight body, The Venue 8 7000 feels great in the hand.
  • The OLED display is eye-popping.
  • It has long battery life.

CONS

  • This tablet is short on storage, offering only 16GB of internal space.

The stereo speakers sit under a perforated grill on the right above the Micro-USB connector. The sound quality is surprisingly good for such a thin device and even sufficient to listen to music every so often.

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.

Let's talk pixels. The Venue 8 7840 has a 8.4-inch OLED display at a resolution of 2560 by 1600. Just let that soak in for a minute. It's a 16:10 aspect ratio with about 359 pixels per inch. And it looks gorgeous.
