Dell Venue 8 7000
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 to cover up the speaker and rear lens with your fingers.
- Well-built, very slim design
- Long battery life

- The first tablet with Intel's RealSense 3D camera setup
- It's too easy to accidentally obstruct the speaker and rear camera
- Despite Intel's RealSense technology, the actual image quality is mediocre

The change in placement of buttons to turn it on and adjust the volume are certainly not a deal breaker.. just took me a day to get used to. Using the camera was easy.. turn the device upside down.. nadda a problem :). The tablet is quick, a pleasure to use, and with the now available 32G version, storage is not an issue. I have had a number of tablets over the yrs, and this is easily my favourite.Engadget Reader80April 4, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I really like this tablet although at $400 it is a little expensive. Nevertheless, it has the best screen I have ever seen on a device. This tablet is fast, looks and feels beautiful to the touch, great camera, terrific speaker, sand accepts large memory cards for storage expansion. It's a keeper! On the needs improvement side, the wireless antenna seems to have a mediocre reception in my home; I'm concerned about durability from potential drops; and I am concerned that the "Dell cast" function requires an expensive add on. Unfortunately, this Dell version Android OS blocks installation of the terrific Google Chromecast adapter which sells for only $30.
