Engadget Summary

At just $179, the budget-friendly Venue 8 may meet your needs -- as long as you don't set the bar too high. The 8-inch, 1280 x 800 screen doesn't stand up well against some of the better Android tablets, but CNET says "HD video still looked clear and sharp." The Venue 8 is also well designed in spite of its price, with PC Mag noting that its "squared-off edges" make the buttons "easy to access," and the weight is evenly distributed, making the Venue 8 something you can "carry with you throughout your day," according to Android Central. Unfortunately, battery life isn't great and Mashable says it "completely fails," eking out only 7.5 hours in their tests.
