Dell Venue 7 Review

Product provided for review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Technology never ceases to amaze me. Things are ever-changing and technology is constantly evolving to provide an easier way of life.

I remember when the first tablet came out. We didn’t buy one right away, but we eventually did. And we’ve continued to buy them because as technology changes, so do the tablets. We like trying new things and having all the latest gadgets. Plus with three children, having plenty of tablets is never a bad thing in my book.

We have many different brands of tablets around our house. We just recently got the Dell Venue 7. Here is our Dell Venue 7 review.

Dell Venue 7

The newest tablet we’ve added to our arsenal is the Dell Venue 7. It is the smallest tablet we own and measures in at just over 7.5 inches long, 4.5 inches wide and under a half inch thick. We’ve had the Dell Venue 7 for about a month and my kids have enjoyed using it for gaming. We’ve also used it in the homeschool room to browse the internet.

When it comes to the technical mumbo-jumbo of specifications and all the jazz, I honestly have no clue what any of it means. But I’ve used enough tablets to know a good one from a bad one. In this Dell Venue 7 review, I’ll share my thoughts on this little tablet that packs quite a punch.

Design

The Dell Venue 7 is a smaller tablet. It features a Mini-USB port on the left edge right above the volume rocker, headphone jack on the top left, power button on the top right, and a microSD slot on the right edge. The speaker sits on the bottom edge. The bezel is thick, which makes the tablet looks cheap.

Features

The Dell Venue 7 is an Android-powered device that is pre-loaded with some software. Chances are you won’t need it all — and it’s easy to unistall what you don’t want or need. There is a large selection of apps, both paid and free, available for download.

Display

The Dell Venue 7 features a 7-inch multi-touch display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution. Video and images look sharp and crisp on the display.

Camera

If you use your tablet to take selfies, the 1-megapixel front camera leaves a lot to be desired — unless fuzzy photos are your thing. However, the 3-megapixel rear camera offers a little more quality with options to change lighting, size, etc. Without the option to focus on a particular subject though, it’s hard to get in-focus shots.

Speed

Besides the long startup time, the tablet speeds through while doing normal activities. I was easily able to run multiple gaming apps without noticing sluggishness. I did notice however that when I would download or update many apps at one time that the speed was greatly impacted. But for normal, everyday activities, it’s a workhorse.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I’m pretty thrilled with the Dell Venue 7, especially considering the price tag (under $200). It’s easy to carry around and fits nicely into my purse.

It doesn’t look like the Dell Venue 7 is available for purchase from the Dell store at this time, but you can find them on Amazon.

    What a great tab that is. My son was just asking for one because he’s going into middle school this year – I think this might be the one.

  2. Diane says:

    I’m always looking for new tech ideas, great info!

  3. Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says:

    This one looks a bit better for the younger set (thanks for the honest feedback about the camera, that’s a huge make or break for me), I am currently using the Surface Pro and I LOVE it, not sure I will change it for any other.

  4. Pam says:

    Dell has always made great computers so I am sure this tablet is great too. It’s on my wishlist.

  5. Liz Mays says:

    Sounds like a nice tablet with pretty much everything you would need. I can see this being really handy when traveling considering it’s long battery life.

  6. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says:

    This sounds like a nice tablet. I’m willing to put up with a bit of a wait on load time for that price!

  7. Alicia says:

    I use a tablet for games and some browsing sometimes, and of course for my kids to play their games on.

  8. Toni | BoulderLocavore says:

    My family loves their iPads but they are too heavy for me. I think the Dell Venue 7 would be much better for my needs.

  12. Liz Mays says:

    I like that it’s lightweight too. I tend to leave stuff at home when it gets too cumbersome.

  13. Laura Gregory says:

    We have the apple products now but always willing to try new things. My kids are electronic junkies.

  14. Marcie W. says:

    I have found that my kids do better with smaller tablets like this since they often need to take them along to school. You definitely can not beat that price tag too, especially with it being from such a well known brand.

  15. Catherine S says:

    This looks like a great Tablet. Dell makes some great products. We have several Dell computers and laptops.

  16. LydiaF says:

    From the description it sounds like it would be a better purchase for someone who isn’t a “power user”. In other words someone who would like to be able to read a book, stream a video and check their email on the same device…but not at the same time.

  17. Michelle F. says:

    That is such a cool tablet! I love how small it is.
