Dell Venue 7 Dell Venue 7inch tablet running Android 4.2.2 Jellybean and upgradeable to Kit-Kat on a 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 16 GB internal memory.The Dell Venue 7 starts at $149 and features a pure Android 4.2.2 operating system. It's lightweight, houses a microSD card expansion, and performs smoothly.The 7-inch IPS LCD brings the 1,280-by-800 resolution and front-facing camera of the Venue 8 to a slightly smaller panel, and it's slightly sharper as a result at 215 pixels per inch. It beats Asus's and Hisense's offerings. Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 7" has the same resolution, but has better color saturation and better viewing angles than the Venue 7. The Nook HD has a 1,440-by-900 display, beating both of these tablets in the high-res arms race.The Dell Venue 7 lasted for 6 hours and 20 minutes on the LAPTOP Battery Test (Web surfing via Wi-Fi), which is longer than the Sero 7 Pro (6:09), but an hour less than the 7:22 category average and more than three hours less than the MeMO Pad HD 7's epic battery life of 9 hours and 40 minutes.
But, Larger games take a while to load, the touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, and battery life only lasts about a day.
The bottom line: The Dell Venue 7 offers a simple design and smooth performance for the right price, but the Nexus 7 is a significant upgrade for not much more. Specifications

VS HP Slate 7 The HP Slate 7 shapes up pretty well with its spec. It boasts an ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage. Importantly the Slate 7 comes with a microSD slot which can expand the memory by up to 32GB, so this makes up for the slightly small storage spec.
While there is a bit of a big gap between where the screen finishes and the edge of the tablet, the overall design of the Slate 7 is pretty good. It sports a nice stainless steel frame, and the device we saw had a metallic grey looking finish to the back (it’s also available in red), the result is an aesthetically impressive tablet. It weighs a pretty reasonable 370g and measures in at 197.1 x 116.1 x 10.7 mm.
The 7-inch screen (which as mentioned above, doesn’t come anywhere close to the edge of the tablet) isn't going to dazzle you at all. But that’s not what you expect from a cheap entry-level device. It has a screen res of 600 x 1024 pixels, and a pixel density of 170ppi, this lags someway behind its two main rivals the Nexus 4 and Kindle Fire HD, which both have a pixel densities of 216ppi. It didn’t look that bad in real life though, to be fair to the Slate 7. Price;$169.00 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
