The Dell Venue 8 7000 is the thinnest tablet on the block, but it's more than just a looker. It packs an almost pure version of Android, a captivating OLED HD screen and did I mention its stereoscopic camera?

Click through the slideshow for a closer look at the Dell Venue 8 7000 and read the full review for all the details.

Thin is still in

The Dell Venue 8 7000 is slimmer than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, but only by a hair. It's even skinnier than the highly lauded Apple iPad Air 2.

Mad photo chops

One of the main attractions of the Dell tablet is its Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth camera. It's the first device to feature the technology.

Three cameras!

The 8-megapixel camera on top works in conjunction with the two stereoscopic cameras below it. This combination captures depth information in a photograph that allows you to further edit a photo after it's been taken.

Flip over for photos

In order to avoid blocking the three cameras, you have turn the tablet upside down, placing the big bezel on top.

Triple viewfinders

There's a viewfinder for each camera when you're taking a stereoscopic image and, if you're blocking any of them, it'll let you know with a polite error message.

Big bottom bezel

Or is it the top bezel? Either way, the biggest bezel on the tablet houses the speaker and front-facing cameras.

Mega microSD capacity

To make up for its low 16GB of internal storage, the Dell Venue 8 7000 can expand up to 512GB via microSD card slot.

OLED stunner

The 8.4-inch OLED screen sports a 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution, which matches the Samsung Tab S 8.4.

Smooth, matte and black

The back of the tablet is smooth and tactily comfortable, but it lacks any grip support.

Good gaming

It doesn't hold a candle to powerhouses like the Nvidia Shield tablet or Google Nexus 9, yet the Venue 8 7000 still performs smoothly during heavy gaming.

Premium and petite

If you're interested in a premium Android slate, put the Dell Venue 8 7000 at the top of your list. Though there are a few other solid competitors, its unique photography capabilities (and super-slim design) make it an anomalous option.
