Dell Venue Android Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info

Dell Venue Android Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info: The Venue is a high-end smartphone from the computer giant Dell. Undeniably, this American multinational company has come a long way in terms of phone design. The Dell Venue looks very similar to its Windows Phone 7 brother (Venue Pro) sans the sliding QWERTY keyboard that makes the phone a solid candybar. It has an industrial design that is curved, lightweight, and slim. The curvature fits comfortably on the palm of your hand while the back is made out of a single unbroken surface with micro patterns that can conceal prints. The Dell Venue was released and announced last year.

The Dell Venue is sold in black color. The phone showcases sophistication in its appearance: the angular cut outs, the chrome trimmings on the sides and the plastic back cover that feels so solid. There are three capacitive Android buttons at the bottom that are evenly spaced to avoid accidental pressing. The thin earpiece grill, light and proximity sensors are all located at the top of the screen.

The Dell Venue also has a camera button, volume rocker, and a unique dedicated button to switch the phone to mute or vibration mode instantly. It is 121 x 64 x 12.9 mm in dimensions and weighs 164 grams. The Dell Venue operates using both 2G and 3G networks. It runs on a 1 GHz Scorpion processor and Adreno 200 graphics-processing unit with 512 MB worth of RAM and 1 GB worth of ROM. There is also a microSD slot that can house up to 32 GB of extended memory.

The Dell Venue is powered by Android v 2.2 (Froyo) operating system while it utilizes a Qualcommm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset. Sensors-wise, it has the basic spectrum: accelerometer, proximity, and compass. The Dell Venue can support SMS threaded view, MMS, email, push email and IM. For Internet browsing, it opens HTML and has Adobe Flash support. It also has a built-in radio, GPS with A-GPS support, and Java support via Java MIDP emulator.


The display of the Dell Venue is a 4.1-inch AMOLED capacitive screen that contains 16.7 M colors in a 480 x 800 resolution. The pixel density is around 228ppi. Every image will pop out looking vibrant, crisp, and sharp. The glass, which covers the entire front of the camera, is made of Corning Gorilla Glass – the subtly curved “Shear Design” which adds extra strength and crispness to the surface as well as holds an ergonomic value. Because of the full glass cover of the front, the Dell Venue looks first rate no matter what angle it is looked at.

The Dell Venue features an 8-megapixel camera with 326 x 2448 pixels resolution, autofocus, and LED flash. The camera has geo-tagging and face detection capabilities. Video support is up to 720 p; however, the Dell Venue does not have a camera at the front.

The camera of the Dell Venue features a wide range of options like ace tracking, macro, exposure, scene modes, color effects, auto exposure modes, and panorama view. There will be no trouble aesthetically adjusting image capture.

Audio-wise, the Dell Venue highlights quality audio. There is no trouble regarding the performance of the earpiece supplied while noise suppression does its job decently. However, there is a minor aberration with the loudspeaker in that it slightly muddles phone calls and distortion is already present when playing the music at around 70 percent volume.

Other features of the Dell Venue include app packages from Google: Google search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, and Picasa integration. It also has social networking integration, an MP3/ eAAC+/ WAV/ WMA9 and MP4/ H.263/ H.262/ WMV9 players, an organizer, a quick office document viewer/ editor, and a voice memo/ dial.

The Dell Venue runs on a 1400 mAh primary battery that can last a whole day using a crowd of applications and 3G network connection.

Overall, the Dell Venue is a solid phone that exudes sophisticated design and laudable user interface. The unit’s retail price is $514.
