Design

The Venue's design is quite similar to the Windows Phone-based Dell Venue Pro, except it doesn't have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. This makes the smartphone more pocket-friendly and more comfortable to hold.

Picture quality

Unfortunately, picture quality is pretty poor. Indoor shots came out hazy with washed-out colors. Photos taken outdoors were slightly brighter but still a bit cloudy.
