It has a quadcore processor. That is much better than a dual. I have seen HD games have lag with dual core and sometimes almost free. Quadcore lag does not happen.
I heard it was better than the nexus 7 second gen, is that true? or is the nexus worth the extra $40? All i want to do is play games and do school work.
Can the device be shipped for me here in Kenya with the neccesary accessories?
@jajami which games have you tried ? are they laggy ? would you say that this tab could be used for gaming purposes or not ?
I am confused coz it is a wifi and only cn support wifi. What the purpose of having a sim card slot and also have tie gsm, 3g, hsdpa support. Pls clarify... Tnx
@jajami, can you try if miracast is working. Also I have found that maybe mhl can work on this device (hdmi by mhl) could you test it?
Camera is average. It take good picture outside, not good inside or in shadow. It doesn't bother me bc I don't use it much.
One thing that nobody mention is that it support usb-otg out of the box. Doesn't require root or any app. Just mount it and see all files in folder. I can play mkv video with mxplayer from USB stick.
@jajami. How does the camera fare? Most reviews say horrible. Just interested if it is really that poor.
Ray, 09 Dec 2013How long does your venue8's battery lasts for ? I insert a microSD then I find that it drains... moreFirst full charge, I got 5:10 hrs screen on time with playing game, browsing, YouTube, feedly, flipboard. It not that bad. If play game only, I might get 2:30-3:00 hrs. I think Intel chipset is not optimized for games.
