Dell Venue 8 Pro : Features, Review & More

Dell has launched it's all new tablet: Venue Pro 8. It is loaded with Windows 8.1, bright screen, 8 inch display, MS office and a very easy to hold build. Let us have a look at it's key features to see if it's offerings are worth this device.

The Design

Dell Venue 8 Pro has experimented with a lot of things, to start with we see the placement of home screen button. Instead of usual placement at the bottom, you will find the home button at the top right corner of the screen. This might take some time but getting used to it will be a matter of a week. The design choice is pretty common while the slate is easy to hold at 13.6 ounces, which is lighter than most of the tablets.

The Display

Venue Pro 8 gives us a screen resolution of 1280x800 and the display which has sharpness to be of similar quality when compared to competitive tablets.

On testing the Trailer of “How to train your Dragon-2”, the colours came up pretty bright while the picture looked crisp with the details of “Toothless” breathtakingly coming out.

The tablet is not prone to any problems related to viewing angles, so you can very well show the videos to your friend’s sitting beside you.

The Audio

Venue 8 Pro’s sound is pretty loud, something which is not expected of a tab. It is registered to be at 88 decibels on the LAPTOP Audio Test. When tested, its loudness marked higher than 80-decibel tablet category average.


Dell Venue pro is a powerful Tab with 1.8 GHz of quad core Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM. The 32GB of 3MMC storage lets the Windows pack boot in 10 seconds which is faster when compared to alike Tabs.


The Pro's 1.2-MP front camera is no special with disturbed pixilation while the device's 5-MP rear lens fared better.

Battery Life

The battery life made us quite happy with a more than decent battery life of 8 hours 18 minutes with a continuous usage over Wi-fi, some games and regular apps.


Venue pro comes in various configurations as the 32 GB tab will be fetched at a price of $299 while adding a Dell folio case will get you the slate for $339. Also, a complete package containing the tablet, a folio case and Dell stylus could be bought for a price of $369.

All configurations pack the same processor and RAM, and you can add $49 to any package to upgrade the Venue 8 Pro from 32GB to 64GB of storage. According to Dell, a Venue 8 Pro Bluetooth keyboard will be available soon for $89. You can also buy Dell Venue 8 Pro accessories online.


I feel, at a price of $299, an even performance, built-in Office and a comfortable lightweight design, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is a dependable device for taking Windows 8.1 on the road.

It surely gives an amazing experience of using Windows platform, the games to be played, apps used, as well as the amazing battery life being provided.
