can someone tell me how much is the RAM on this ? i see the specs on most sites say 512 MB ..but it shows 256 ?? whyy ?? is it really 256 ??.. also with Mango ..once multitasking is there..will 256 MB gives problem??
Battery drain is a big issue in this phone,It really made me disappointed:(
Sweet combo of WP7 and impresive design. It used to freeze until i changed the microsd with a 32gb class 2 sandisk, voiding my warranty. But now works perfect.
Excellent specs but I am waiting for the next generation.
I would appreciate an 8MP camera with Xenon flash and an 64GB internal memory capacity is an absolute must.
Looking forward to it!
can i buy an unlocked one in india and use it with my south african sim card in south africa? will it work?
himanshu, 10 Apr 2011unable to access marketplace :( (not availble in country of region)windows marketplace enabler software..
@vilas: dude,use the software "Windows MArketplace Enabler",select india,and then open zune! you ll get narketplace,in indian rupees!
the phone marketplace cannot be used as yet!
but microsoft did open the marketplace for a few days early april when we didnt need this software to access the marketplace,but its blocked again..guess they ll re introdude soon..till then,use this software!
absolutely awesome phone! smooth as silk,camera gets a 4 on 5 for te dhots, but its very prone to shakes.
a bit on the heavier side, but it feels great in your hand! but dont try to compare the weight with any other phone,it ll disappoint you.
qwerty keypad is great to use!
battery life is average,12-16 hours,with a few camera shots, and moderate use. but i ve only had it for 3 weeks now..i heard it ll inprove..it has been improvin actually.but a full day can drain it!
sexy design,gorilla glass still shows no scratches,but its a fingerprint haven,everythin from the glass,to the metal sides,to dell's patented back cover!
but overall, a 9 on 10! super smooth,super design,one of the best batteries on any wp7,and the awesome potrait qwerty!
It is really great experience to use Dell Venue Pro. Had it been with less weight, mobile phone should not exceed 130gm and less size, one 2 cm less in height with integrated Qwerty would have been much better to carry and use. Most of the business users will love this phone as this has wondeful integration with Exchange. One issue in India, it appears that no application in India, it gives message 'No Marketplace in Country / Region'. Dell must look into this immediately. We won't buying them in US$.
Very solid building and smooth slider.
Portrait keyboard is good enough, though not perfect.
camera quite good under direct sunlight but have to manually adjust to iso 800 for indoor shootings.
micro sd cards can be replaced to expand storage space (void warranty) - a huge plus of DVP among its WP7 peers
amoled screen: highly saturated but biased colors, appealing though.
very bulky and was delayed for so long...
all in all, a great phone~
Hi Guys. Thanks for your feedback. I got my Dell Venue Pro last Friday and managed to successfully upgrade my microSD card to 32GB. Firstly, it only support Sandisk 32GB microSD. Then I follow the instruction on this link: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/cell-phones/are-dell-venue-pro-issues-related-to-microsd-cards-i-turned-mine-into-a-32gb-model/5405
All works fine and I really enjoy this phone.
AnonD-3843, 14 Mar 2011Anyone has this Dell Venue Pro. I need your confirmation/feedback if there is an expandable Mi... moreBe warned... The Internet will tell you that it's easy to upgrade these phones. (It's not and your warranty will be voided after you switch out the original card)...
My 8GB model would not recognize two different 32gb microsd cards. My warranty was voided, and the 8 gb card that originally came with the phone eventually broke on me after I keep switching the 32 gb cards with the 8gb card. I broke my phone and had to buy a new one from Dell at full price. Sucks because it's a great phone but I want more space!
about the 256 mb ram: te phone has 512 mb of ram,confirmed dell. the reason it sgows 256 is because the phone uses up 256 mb fo rits own use leaving behind the ret for the apps. it wasa confirmed by dell,according to some review i read,sorry i dont remember where. buthte dell site too gives specs as 512mb. so i guess we should elieve them and there is no reason to worry.

Anyone has this Dell Venue Pro. I need your confirmation/feedback if there is an expandable Micro SD card slot on this phone and if you are successful in getting a bigger size Micro SD card to work on it? Thanks heaps.
Hey I have just place an order for this from MobiCity. While chatting with them, we come across an issue that needs clarification and that is the expandable Micro SD card/slot. Anyone who have this Dell Venue Pro - can you kindly confirm if there is an expandable Micro SD card on this phone or not? If it does, does it work, are able to insert a bigger micro SD card and that if it works?
