I was a bit hesitant about the phone initially since one does not see a lot of Dell phones out in the open these days. However, the main reasons I went in for the Dell Venue were: na) Large screen size (4.1 inches)nb) Good screen resolution (480x800 Pixels)nc) AMOLED screennd) Gorilla glass displayne) 1GHz Processornf) 8 MP cameran For the price I paid for this phone, I think it is an amazing deal since other phones with most similar features cost you a lot more. For example the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V costs about Rs.17,400 but you get only a 3.7 inch TFT screen and a 5MP camera. The Samsung Galaxy S LCD costing about Rs.18,000 has a 4 inch LCD screen and a 5 MP camrea. Both have the same screen resolution and processor speed as the Venue. nnSome of the drawbacks of the phone are:n1) Battery life is not that great even though it uses a 1400 mAh Li-Ion batteryn2) Capacitive buttons on the bottom of the screen (back, menu and home) are not always backlit when certain applications/games are in use. This is a bit irritating while using the phone in the dark and I had to grope about a couple of times before I hit the right spot/keyn3) No secondary cameran4) Rear textured panel could have done well if the textures were more pronouncedn5) For me as a left hander, the power button is very conveniently placed on the upper right corner. However right handed users could possibly find its location a bit of a problem n6) The data cable which doubles as the charging cord when plugged into the adapter is too short for comfort.
I wonder why Dell came up with such a product at such a price.....its hilarious....do we indians look like fools to you. Flipkart should actually scrap this product out of the list, even they are aware that this product is a failure in the market. I have used a dell smart phone before and their after sales service is below par.

This is my personnel experience with Dell Venue. Dell Customer service is really very very very bad. In fact, no support. First piece which I received never switched on. So replaced the piece with another piece, that piece display went off suddenly. I am not a Mobile illiterate. Using various Mobile phones since 2003. Presently using i phone 4. I planned to buy this Mobile as it had 8 MP Camera, as even its next version Dell Streak has only 5 MP Camera. Planned never to buy any Dell Product, as customer support was nil. Never expected this from a reputed company.nnHaneydict
this phone is out dated, this was launched 2-3 years back and even then it was a flop, i guess they are just trying to dump the unsold peaces in india. YOU GET BETTER PHONE 5K WITH SAME FEATURES.
