Dell Venue 8 7840 Tablet Review

Rating: 9.0.

Dell is not a name many people would associate with quality tablets. Rather, most would associate the company with mass-produced office PCs, or at best the expensive Alienware brand. However, Dell have recently expanded into other areas, with tablets being one of them. The Venue 8 7840 is certainly a premium product, costing £330. Is it a quality device, however? We take a look and see if it’s worth buying.

The Dell Venue 8 7840 is an 8.4-inch Android tablet. It has several interesting features, not least of which include a 2560*1600 OLED display, the latest Intel Atom Z3580 processor, and an Intel RealSense Depth Camera. There’s a lot to talk about with the Venue 7840 – but is that good or bad?


  • 8.4inch WQXGA display.

    Just a note about 16GB + SD card with KitKat: in my experience with the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, that’s quite useless. I guess it depends on use, but a 2.5GB game can only move 100MB to the SD card, and most apps can only access the SD card read-only. So even though I have a 64GB microSD card, it gets next to no use, while the device storage is always full. So this Dell may be able to use a 512GB card, but it’s pretty pointless.

    By the way, it would be interesting to compare this to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4.
