Girthy profile

Even though it's pretty lightweight, the Venue 7 has a thicker profile than some of the top 7-inch tablets. The inclusion of a microSD card expansion slot is always a plus.

IPS screen with great angles

The Venue 7 boasts a mediocre 1,280x800-pixel-resolution IPS screen with great viewing angles. It isn't the highest resolution, but it looks sharp when displaying HD video and text.

The volume rocker is flush with the left edge of the tablet (if holding in portrait orientation) and isn't easily found without taking a look to see where it is.

Single speaker

There's only one speaker on the Venue 7 tablet, and it's located on the bottom edge. It goes pretty loud, but suffers from distortion when pushed to its limits.
