Dell Venue Pro Review: In Depth

Recombu
11 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Windows Phone 7 handsets have proved to carry a reliable set of features, a bright, clear capacitive touchscreen, at least a five-megapixel camera with flash and dedicated button, and enough processing power to keep your internet browsing smooth. The phone’s have began to look very similar- and it’s great to see Dell enter the fray with a more imaginative offering.

Dell’s Big, Brawny Windows Phone Means Business

Wired
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Smartphone designers generally follow the same credo as ballerinas and runway models — you can never be too thin. But Dell has taken a different approach with its newest Windows 7 Phone, the Venue Pro . Even though it’s both agile and beautiful, the Pro is quite the fatty. At 6.8 ounces, it’s heavier than the iPhone 4 , Motorola Droid and even the HTC EVO . The primary culprit for this heft is the Venue Pro’s useful slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
  • Pros: One of the most well-appointed WinMo phones to date. Tough Gorilla Glass screen takes all kinds of abuse. Comfortable, idiot-simple QWERTY keypad. Snappy boot time.
  • Cons: Not exactly pocket-friendly. Craptastic camera performance in low-light settings. Hand-offs between apps and the web are still jarring. Slightly curved display is a smudge magnet. Trickle of WinMo apps limits potential.

  • Excerpt: Dell's Venue Pro , first announced in October, is somewhat late to market. But this Windows Phone 7 smartphone with a huge 4.1in AmoLED capacitive multitouch screen and qwerty keypad has certainly arrived in style. Updated, 9 May 2011.

Dell Venue Pro review

3g
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The Venue Pro’s standout features are its build quality and design, right down to the textured reverse that is even included on the surface that is concealed behind the slider Despite the fact that there is no physical Windows button, the handset offers the same top-notch user-friendliness of other WP7 phones It’s a shame there are no manufacturer program tiles, but it offers the usual appealing WP7 features.

  • Excerpt: Das Dell Venue Pro setzt in Sachen Optik Maßstäbe. Doch Aussehen ist nicht alles. Der Test zeigt: Das Venue Pro ist eine gelungene Mischung aus edlem Highend-Gerät, Business-Boliden und Multimedia-Handy. Allerdings hapert es bei der Performance, an der Akkulaufzeit - und am Preis.
  • Pros: Kontrastreiches AMOLED-Display, Sehr gute Telefonakustik, Reaktionsstarker Touchscreen, Gute Volltastatur
  • Cons: Schlapper Akku, Keine Navi-Lösung vorinstalliert, Hoher Preis
