Dell Venue Pro Review
0. phoneArena 21 Dec 2010, 07:49 posted on
The Dell Venue Pro presents itself as possibly being the very first true titan in the Windows Phone 7 space as it packs a massive display and a portrait style slide out keyboard. Boasting a refreshing design that undoubtedly differentiates itself from the current pack, this might very well be the device you'll probably want to check out if you want to get your feet wet with the still new platform...

Business class look

My only negative is that Dell didn't include instructions on installing the battery or sim with the included manuals of the venue pro. Took me an hour to finally find a forum post that explained it..

@atxanon - any chance you can re-post the forum post, or a link to it? :) My Venue Pro is in the mail...

The design is a rip-off on the Nokia X6. Nothing original about it.

It's a very nice phone, But under T-mobile the signal is really bad, Can't enjoy the capabilities of the phone to its fullest. I used to have a sidekick and the signal was better so I am thinking the phone is the issue.

I posted my review a few days after getting the phone. Over a month later and I STILL LOVE IT.. battery life has gotten better, internet speed is also better, have even seen HSPDA+ speeds (20-30MG) when I have a solid signal. Only thing lacking is the camera. But to be honest, I havent seen a cell phone camera shoot great pictures in dim light. NO Scratches at all and I put the phone in my pocket a lot with keys what have you. The gorilla glass is all it claims to be. I should also mention I have very large hands and I find typing with my thumbs on the keyboard a TON easier than using the touchscreen.

I have this phone for over 2 months now, I still like it but it has an issue; the dust particles collects under the glass cover screen. I don't know how the dust gets inside as the phone seems to be air tight but the dus is noticable under the screen and can't be removed. This is pretty bad and I can only see it getting worse.
Besides that this phone is missing an LED notification light otherwise I need to wake the phone up to see if i received something.

If i could get this phone on Verizon I would trade my Iphone in a heartbeat. Beautiful phone and I'm dying to try wp7.

The screen is made of Gorilla glass, but don't be fooled. I had mine for a few weeks and it vibrated off the counter and splintered the glass in a million pieces. Gorilla glass my butt. Dell wants 249 to replace. I can buy a new one for 300... what a waste.

iphones are also made of gorilla glass, but i'm sure if you drop anything made of glass off a counter, its gonna shatter. The gorilla glass is mainly supposed to be more scratch resistant
