Camera - the only blemish

Honestly, the rear three-megapixel camera and the front VGA camera left us wanting more.

It looked like both the cameras came to life only in decent lighting conditions, so clearly it will be tough for you to yield decent pictures in dark or dull light conditions.

Also, when you click, it might seem that the picture is out of focus, but the end result does manage to look fine. The video quality was decent.

So, keeping the camera aside, the Dell Venue 7 is a brilliant option for all you tab lovers. Some of the Venue's models also come with a calling option, which makes it even more feasible.

The Venue 7 is priced at Rs 10,999 and with all these specs, it looks like a decent buy.
