Dell Venue 8 Pro vs Lenovo IdeaTab S5000 vs Google Nexus 7:Who is the winner?

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                Dell Venue 8 Pro                                                                                                                                         The tiny Dell Venue 8 Pro has a premium look and feel for such an inexpensive system, offers good stylus support, and runs full Windows 8 in something about the size of an iPad Mini.The Venue Pro’s 8-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels—that’s a far cry from the 1080p resolution of tablets such as the more laptop-like Microsoft Surface Pro 2, and it’s even farther from the iPad mini with a 2048-by-1536-pixel Retina display.The Venue 8 Pro is powered by a quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z3740D processor with 2GB of RAM, integrated Intel HD graphics and 32GB of internal storage. Supplementing the internal storage is a memory card slot. The microSD card slot sits on the right side, which is also where you will find the volume rocker, power button and microUSB for charging. Looking over the rest of the device and you find a Windows button and headphone jack up top and speaker on the bottom. The left side is clean and clear.Microsoft has made a lot of improvements to support these types of small Windows tablets, and it shows. The Windows 8.1 Start screen includes options to resize Live Tiles for the smaller screen. There’s a new Reading List app to help save favorites and apps between Windows 8 machines, a Reading Mode in Internet Explorer. Most of the built-in apps run much better in portrait mode. That’s exactly how I use the Dell Venue 8 Pro nearly 100 percent of the time — reading in portrait mode — much as I do on the iPad mini.The non-removable battery is rated by Dell at 9.9 hours of life per charge.
But, A misplaced Windows button throws off the usability, and the 32GB of SSD storage won't hold much. A promised keyboard accessory isn't available yet.
The bottom line: The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.                                                           Specifications

The S5000 is one of the current mid-range models from a major corporation. With a suggested retail price of $275.Measuring just 7.9 mm, the S5000 is one of the slimmest tablets in the market. It weighs in at just 246 grams (0.54 lbs), nearly one-fifth lighter than many of the premium tablets being sold today. Inside this thin and light frame resides plenty of horsepower, starting with a 7-inch1280x800 resolution, 350 nit brightness and full HD wide-viewing angle display to make it easy to share photos and videos with family and friends.A 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek 8389 CPU acts as the brains for the 3G model, and a MediaTek 8125 processor runs the Wi-Fi-only version. Other components include 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB, an accelerometer, GPS, a 5-megapixel back camera, and a 1.6-megapixel front shooter. Lenovo claims up to 8 hours of life with the included 3,200MAh battery,so you should get around eight hours' web browsing out of the device, or six hours' HD video watching. This figure is decent enough, and matches that of most of its rivals.                                                                                                                                       VS                                                                                                                                                             Google Nexus 7                                                                                                                                         The Nexus 7 features a sharp screen, a comfortable design, and great battery life at a low starting price.It’s slicker, faster and sleeker than any other 7-inch tablet on the market right now, and only the rear facing camera really lets it down.The battery life is really impressive, and the sheer diversity on offer, be it through the uprated CPU, screen, or GPU, mean that we struggled to put it down at times. Android 4.2 adds some welcome and useful features.
But, Android still needs more tablet-optimized apps, newer games have frame rate issues, and HSPA+ speeds seem particularly location-dependent.
The bottom line: With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Specifications
