Summary: Internet search too slow and the phone is too cumbersome to operate. I can't open attachments and can't send them. I don't think this phone is as user-friendly as a android phone. Some of the apps you can't find, and when I went to Itunes my phone needed to be updated to Windows 8 in order to download any of the apps I needed. I don't think I'll keep it.
Summary: I was just browsing Ebay when I saw this Dell Venue Pro and would love to try it for the first time, when I got it I was pretty amazed by the Chrome sleek design of the phone, I never had issue when it comes to texting because it never freezes unlike other Android phones that I've tried. I love it when I open the slide and there's a physical qwerty keyboard and if i get tired of the keyboard i can use the touch keyboards on the screen.
The Dell Venue Pro; smartphone power for a regular phone price

Summary: The Dell Venue Pro was Dell's attempt at the smartphone game. Originally released back in 2010, the Dell Venue Pro runs on a Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. It comes with a five megapixel camera, GPS, and an FM tuner. It was also one of the few Windows phones (to this day) to have a touchscreen as well as a slide out keyboard.
Summary: Hi. At first I like the item very nice phone so when I start the phone every thing seems well but when I want to make a call then the problem started. No call.just go on YouTube and see for your selfs.do not recommend this item.
Summary: This phone was received on Thursday and returned on Saturday. Within that time it froze, it blocked incoming text messages saying storage was full when I'd only received and sent out approximately 50 messages combined. It continued to block text when all text history had been cleared. I was unable to dial out on it for an hour or so.Also even with a16G SD card installed in the 16G cellphone after downloading a few apps I was told storage was full.
Great phone for the price, looks elegant and so far has been reliable.

Summary: This phone does not run Windows 8. Therefore some of the newer apps cannot be installed. It does not have a front facing camera. The phone looks amazing and I love the Keyboard (That's a plus for me, but it might be a problem for other buyers) This is a great purchase for the price. You can remove the SD card and insert a 16 or 32 GB and it will make it faster. I installed a 16GB card and the phone works amazing.
Summary: Who knew Dell made smartphones, pretty great smartphones at that. The Dell Venue Pro is thick and heavy which bugs me a little but it's a beautiful phone. Its easy to use, its a windows phone! and the market has some pretty awesome apps for free. I just wish they had more useful/necessary apps. The keyboard is the number #1 reason I bought this phone and it doesn't disappoint. It's like having a Blackberry Torch in a Nokia's body.
Summary: the phone itself was amazing. the keypad was a nice touch even the touch screen worked great. the phone itself is bulky and oversized to other smart phones out there which can deter some people. the Camera was good but it took me a while to get the right settings. When i did though, nice pics! the apps are just like those on any WIN 7 phones. Still use as an handheld XBOX game console.
