Dell Venue 7 Tablet: First Impression

When a few days back I got a mail from Dell asking me whether I would be interested to review one of their products , I was left kind of confused. I told them I was not a gadget or gizmo expert so I don’t think I am the right person for this task. To my surprise, they insisted I was, because they did not want to concentrate on the technical aspect of the tab…but also overall utility and that’s why they wanted bloggers to use them, test them and give an honest verdict and added that I won’t be disappointed. Well, when a company is this confident about their product, you do get a little intrigued and thus I said yes πŸ™‚
A week later I came home to a big box with the  dell logo waiting for me at home.  I opened the packaging with alot of enthusiasm and excitement to find the Dell Venue 7 Tablet inside. 

The tab came in a secure cardboard packaging and was accompanied by a charger and a manual. I don’t own a tab so I sat down to read the manual to understand how it works, what are the specifications and all the technical stuff like that. Once I was sure that I was armed with all the information I needed, it was time to play.

Ok lets talk about the the basic features first. The tablet has a 7 inch screen, its pretty slim and sturdy. I remember using a friend’s new tablet (expensive one at that) a few months back and I could hear creaking noise when I was handling it so it was nice to see that Dell made sure that even if the packaging is simple atleast it has a decent quality. There are no keys on the tab except the power key on the top and the volume rocker on the sides. 
I love how the tab is not bulky at all. See I already carry a phone that my office gave me, along with my personal phone plus my laptop so the last thing I need is another bulky gadget. 

I have been using this tab for a little over a week now and at least the first impression has been great. I definitely like the 7 inch display and the screen quality is decent. The touchscreen is quite sensitive so navigation is a child’s play. Battery backup is around 10 hours right now which is pretty decent but I know battery life starts decreasing with usage so I will get back to you about it after testing it for a few more days.

If I have to summarise my first few days with the tab I would say its pretty amazing. So far I don’t have any complains with it. I love how convenient it is to watch YouTube videos to create a new look without moving around every thing I have on my vanity or making note of stuff that I suddenly observe about a particular product. 
This is it for the first impression however this is the first post of a whole series I will be doing on this product for the next few months. I am yet to use it to blog but that’s next on the list and I’ll talk about it in my next post so stay tuned.
P.S. Well as I mentioned I was sent this product by the company for review purposes however be rest assured that you will always find honest reviews on this website.
