Sim­plic­ity Wins

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The pop­u­lar­ity of 7-inch tablets has pushed many In­dian as well as global play­ers to come up with one. The lat­est to join this band­wagon is Dell with its Venue 7.

Priced ag­gres­sively, the Venue 7 has a nice, sturdy built. It feels much su­pe­rior to the flimsy budget tablets of­fered by In­dian brands. It has a touch dis­play with 1280x800 pixel res­o­lu­tion and good view­ing an­gles. But the dis­play could have been bet­ter and less re­flec­tive.

The in­nards of this tab feel pure An­droid. The user in­ter­face has been kept sim­ple. It runs on a dual core In­tel Atom pro­ces­sor and is paired with 2GB of RAM. The pow­er­ful pro­ces­sor helps in the over­all per­for­mance as I was able to down­load apps, play heavy graphic games and switch be­tween apps with ease. The web brows­ing ex­pe­ri­ence was also smooth. The best part about this tablet is the abil­ity to play full HD videos with­out the need to in­stall any third­party me­dia player app, which is usu­ally miss­ing from most tabs. This ex­pe­ri­ence was fur­ther en­hanced by speak­ers that of­fered loud and clear sound out­put.

The tablet packs in a 3MP rear cam­era that isn't any good. The im­ages are just about aver­age and the bat­tery lasted only about seven hours.
