Editors Didn't Like

  • Stutters with Flash content, Shoots ugly looking 720p videos, LED flash is nearly worthless
  • Last generation hardware and software; Power button inconveniently placed; No DivX/Xvid playback; No HDMI-out; No video call camera; Dell Stage is sluggish; Low volume in headphones; Camera lens gets easily covered
  • Heavy. Some reception issues. A little buggy
  • The camera quality was subpar, Dell's Stage user interface could use some refinement and won't appeal to everyone, and the Venue doesn't support T-Mobile's HSPA+ network
  • No FM
  • Can't charge a drained battery from wall socket, Backup utility not reliable
