This is a garbage tablet. Its been nothing but problems since day one.
Can't watch most videos because this "tablet" doesn't support any plug ins and you can't download them. I wanted to put music on it and realized that it can't even connect to a computer. This is basically a stand alone beta attempt at a tablet, which failed in every way.
I set a picture as my background and as soon as I rotate my screen and back the image is now stuck zoomed in 200%. Every single time.
I try to open my Gmail and this tablets version of Gmail only allows you to view half screens, devided down the center there's a list of e-mails on one side, and the "opened" email on the other half of the screen. You can't see all of it, you have to slide the bar left and right like an idiot while you try to piece together what you're reading like some sort of technological riddle. You can't zoom in to see all of any email you get.
When I place my finger on a word, trying to place the marker on the word so I can make corrections, it will not allow it. Instead it highlights the entire word every time so I end up wasting time deleting entire words and rewriting them. The auto correct and word prediction is atrociously bad. Sometimes they're not even words.
The tablet volume does not allow you to listen to your music with the volume up high, after about 5 to 20 mins it stops playing your music/movie etc. to tell you that listening to music at high volumes is bad. There is no way to turn this off.
Volume is also extremely low, so whenever I plug into a speaker or headphones I have to crank the volume to hear it...but then this tablet stops me again. Every God damn time. Flawed design, Dell.
Also, often I'll have multiple tabs open and I'll be typing something important on one tab and when I change tabs to do something and I come back---it reloads every page individually and everything I wrote is erased, and this happens with any page, I cannot change tabs or even minimize anything if I'm writing because I'll lose it.
EVERYTHING CRASHES! Even when I open the settings, THE SETTINGS crash the tablet when nothing else is open.
It's slow, laggy, glitchy and over all just a bad investment. It's not a phone, it's not a music device, it's not built for movies, it's not built for games, it's apparently not built for day to day use, simply put its really not good for anything.
I'm extremely upset with the Dell Venue 7 and will never again in my life buy a Dell product because this is not what I paid for, and from the looks of the internet, nobody else is happy with iteither. So many hours of frustration I am surprised that I haven't just smashed it yet.
I just don't understand how a huge company like Dell can release this to the public when it's clearly still got a lot of work to be done internally.
Externally speaking, it looks nice.
I hear there's a Dell Venue 8 now. I'm sure they revamped some things but let's be honest, it's still a Dell. The corners cut on the 7 demonstrate a vast degree of neglect and slackery that I can never excuse. From now on as far as I'm concerned Dell doesn't even try to make practical functioning devices.
It is a worst tablet seen in my life.
Problems:- 1)Very slow
2)When we turn on wifi it gets hanged and switched off automatically
Solution:- 1)If you install and run frequently any junk cleaner (or) ram booster like Clean Master,CleanIt,AVG Cleaner etc it works better then normal
I bought this product in last jan'2015, I just got good service only for 2 months from the date I purchased. This the worst product from dell I guess. It got very slow in just 2 months. I tried so many technology to make it fast but no result I got!!! I visited servicing center multiple times but no permanent solution they gave. It used to run normally only for 1 week after that I faced same problem!! The worst product of dell don't buy this ever!!!!
My suggestion is better to don't buy this product. It's not working properly. When ever we are using suddenly it's going to to shut down itself. I purchased this 7months back. It's common problem to everyone not responding and hanging. I never see such a worst product from Dell.

Dell is becoming poorly substandard. I bought this TAB in the month of August. Ever since then it is more with the customer service station more of the time than it has been with me. The Service tag number is: 1G32999. And finally I have requested the service station guys to please keep the tab with them for their own research and development purpose. Also, if you ask a special repairing complementary service from them due to damage issue, and if that is more than one time, they will treat you so badly asking questions like "Whose fault is this?" Who should pay for this?" in a very rude manner. I have given this tab 6 times for Battery Failure/IC Failure/ OS Crash issues. First time I gave the tab for damage issue they repaired it. The second time I gave it they are charging a price which is more than the Tablet price. This is a pathetic device. And I have a similar issue with the Dell Vostro I purchased spending 50000 Rs. The product started failing so badly after 1.5 months of purchase that I finally donated the same to them. My Phone number is 9535477252. I have all the proof of conversations with customer service team, I have proofs of everything I have been saying. Refrain from buying Dell products!!

Dell venue 7 is a shit. Apps keep on crashing down, n the tab regularly hangs. It's a waste on spending money on this tab. Could never imagine, dell would degrade its quality. I think I m done with Dell, may b all products.
