Dell Venue 10 7000


The Venue 10 7000 is one such productivity- and play-minded device from Dell. As part of Dell’s premium 7000 line, this 10.5-inch slate is a cut above from your typical Android tablet, with a 2,560 x 1,600 OLED display. What’s more, a quad-core, 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor gives this slate an extra leg up as a work machine.

Design :

It’s hard to look at the Dell Venue 10 7000 and not immediately think that it’s riffing a bit too much off of Lenovo’s Yoga tablets. Between the thin screen and barrel hinge, the likeness between Lenovo and Dell’s respective tablets is obvious.

That’s not to say Dell’s device is completely identical. Dell has added plenty of its own design touches – mostly from the Dell Venue 8 7000.

Like its smaller, 8-inch brother, the Venue 10 7000 is made with a thin aluminum frame. A cylindrical hinge also protrudes from both sides of the tablet, whereas the Yoga Tablet 2 features a completely flat face with a curvy backside and a flip-out kickstand built into its hinge.

Measuring in at 6.2mm (0.24 inches), the Venue 10 isn’t quite as thin as the 6mm (0.24-inch) Venue 8 7000 or the 6.1mm (0.24-inch) iPad Air 2, but it’s thinner than the 7.2mm (0.28-inch) Lenovo Yoga Tablet.

Pixel love :

By far, one of the Venue 10’s most lovely features is its OLED display. The 2,560 x 1,600 resolution makes everything look better from digital comics and websites to movies and YouTube videos.

In the resolution battle, the Dell’s tablet packs 288 pixels per inch (ppi), easily out-sharpening the iPad Air 2 and its 264 ppi display. Dell’s 10.5-inch slate also matches the pixel density of other flagship Android tablets, including the Nexus 9 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, meanwhile, lags behind, severely limited by its Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) display running at only 224 ppi.

More importantly, this slate simply looks better because it produces stunningly vibrant colors without any of the oversaturation that typically plagues OLED screens. At the same time, this organic display produces truer blacks than any LCD, which came in handy when bringing all the dark scenes in Game of Thrones to life.
