Dell Venue 8
Innovation at its best
The world’s thinnest tablet wins the prestigious 2015 CES 'Best of Innovation' award. Capture and view pictures with a gorgeous 8.4 inch 2560 x 1600 OLED infinity display with an Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera.
Made for memories
- Beautiful edge-to-edge clarity
View and share amazing photos and video on the world’s best tablet display available with an 8.4 inch OLED infinity display and incredibly vivid 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Edit and measure like a pro
- Depth photography and 3D editing
Advanced photo editing is easier than ever with the world’s first integrated Intel RealSense Depth Camera and New Dell Gallery. Three cameras create a high-definition depth map that enables measurement, refocus, and selective filters with a touch of a finger. No matter where you focus your lens when you snap a picture, you can re-focus afterward to highlight any section of the image you want. Blur the foreground or background, filter shades from black and white to color, or adjust contrast and brightness.
- Precise measurements
Depth photos and Dell Gallery also allow you to measure length, width and height to scale with your photos. See how high your jump shot is, find out the surface area of that wall that needs painting, or rearrange your living room and compare objects with true-to-life data.
Innovative smart albums
- Organize important moments in your life, beautifully
The Dell Gallery connects to your favorite social media sites, and then collects and sorts all of your pictures – new and old – into a single album, along with social media comments and likes. Every image is arranged automatically so you can locate photos by date in Timeline View, or view them geographically in Maps View to relive your travels. With the facial recognition feature, you can search, sort and tag Facebook photos of your friends and family in People View. The all new Dell Gallery is redesigned to make your Venue 8 the final destination for all your photos.

Top Customer Reviews
The screen on this tablet is absolutely beautiful, at full brightness. It's got gorgeous colors and is bright enough to be used in broad daylight. However, once you lower it to around 30% brightness a number of problems begin to emerge. First, you notice that darker colors, especially darker grays, begin to shift purple. This problem can be visualized by displaying a black-to-white gradient on the screen. At higher brightness, the gradient will look normal, but once a certain threshold is passed (around 30% brightness) a band of purple begins to appear where the darkest grays should be. Note that because this is an OLED display, blacks are always perfect, and only the dark grays have issues. In terms of video/movie quality, this can mean darker scenes can be tinted purple at 0-30% brightness. In my opinion, this isn't a huge issue as it doesn't really bother me much, but it is worth noting.
This IS an inductive capable screen, and as such, the Dell Active stylus works on it. I'm not an artist, but the pen performance seems smooth enough, and it certainly works well as a note-taking device.
This tablet comes with a nearly stock version of Android 5.1. The little bloatware Dell does include can actually cause some problems - the Dell services sometimes cause the tablet to heat up. This can be solved by simply going into the applications manager and force-closing the Dell User service, which will usually make it start cooling down. Otherwise the stock apps can either be disabled or are relatively useful.
If you can't stand lag, don't buy this tablet. A 2560x1600 screen running on an Intel Atom processor is going to lag, period. It's the price you pay to get such a nice, high resolution display. The lagging isn't incessant by any means, but it is noticeable here and there, especially when loading heavy webpages in Chrome. I don't know if it's an optimization issue from architecture differences (x86 vs ARM) or what, but large sites can kill your performance.
The RAM is somewhat adequate, but it seems that 3GB is a more comfortable amount these days with how bloated Android has gotten.
The wireless functionality included seems somewhat weak. My laptop and phone can both maintain a fairly stable connection to my router on the other side of my house, but this tablet drops the connection frequently enough that I've resorted to downloading content instead of streaming it. This shouldn't be a problem if you have good reception throughout your house, but if your router is blocked by several thick walls (like mine) or is for some reason over fifty feet away, then you may run into some issues.
THIS TABLET ONLY SUPPORTS FAT/FAT32
THIS MEANS YOU CANNOT PUT FILES OVER 4GB ON YOUR SD CARD, NO MATTER THE CAPACITY
That may be changed in the future, but I doubt it. Support for alternate filesystems is absolutely essential, and this is an area which Dell made a HUGE mistake. I can live without NTFS or exFAT support, but for some reason they decided to disable ext4 support for SD cards, which is just an utterly baffling move. I know Microsoft has patents on NTFS/exFAT, but ext4 is free software AND is already used as the root filesystem for plenty of Android devices (probably including this one) which makes the decision to disable it for SD cards even more puzzling. I've also tried F2FS and ext3, as well as btrfs and a couple of other alternative filesystems and none worked. Dell, if you ever read this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ENABLE ext4 SUPPORT (or give me an internship, I'll do it for you)!
The speaker is surprisingly good for a tablet of this size, and beats my laptop's speakers by far. As far as I can tell, it competes very well with tablets like the iPad. The DAC quality is also decent, but it's definitely not enough to power headphones above 250 ohms. I'm barely scraping by at 250 ohms. The bundled Dell software includes a parametric-esque equalizer, which is a really really neat feature. It's not precise by any means (it's as precise as your fat fingers) but it's a nice feature to have.
Fit and Finish:
Flawless. No complaints here, the fit and finish are amazing. Almost everything is aluminum and glass, and this really feels like a $500 device, as opposed to a $200-$300 one. It's very comparable to higher priced tablets like the iPad, and in my personal experience, I find the angular, flat design to be much more attractive. Knocks the $200 Nexus 7 from a couple of years ago completely out of the water.
This is a perfect tablet if:
you can stand a bit of lag;
you don't use SD cards or don't put files over 4GBs on your SD cards;
you don't use high impedance headphones (although this applies to most other tablets as well);
you don't need root functionality (it's a huge pain).
If you use your tablet for anything other than Facebook/web browsing DO NOT PURCHASE.
