Pros WPT operating system truly shines on the Dell Venue Pro. The amoled screen is amazingly gorgeous and makes gaming, picturs, and videos amazing to play and watch.
Cons Sorry but there isn't anything I don't like about the phone and the size is A ok with me.
Summary I love the design and build of the Venue Pro. I love how the portrait slider makes it easier to change from the onscreen version althought I must say WP7 onscreen keyboard is really really good. I also own an HTC Evo and I haven't used it very much at all since purchasing this phone so that says alot about which phone and operating system I prefer. The Venue Pro has a luxurious quality look and feel. The Bing and Voice search apps are easily accessable with a dedicated button. The dedicated camera button makes picture taking alot simpler as well. Overall I'm truly satisfied and impressed with my Dell Venue Pro.
Pros The screen is large, crisp, and vibrant. The build is solid. The portrait keyboard has keys large enough for man hands. There is a subtle pattern on the back that helps the phone from slipping in your grip. Gorilla Glass makes a case unnecessary.
Cons The camera is adequate at best. 8G means you won't be using this phone for video much but it seems to be plenty of room for apps, photos, and music. The flush mount buttons can be tricky to use.
Summary The Dell Venue Pro is so close to being perfect that its imperfections become prominent. For anyone who prefers a physical keyboard the DVP is the superior choice as WP7 is designed primarily for portrait use. It is extremely durable. I've had the phone for five months and it looks new. I wish it had a kickstand like the HD7 because Netflix movies are fantastic on this gorgeous screen. It's the kind of phone where you won't regret your purchase but you will look forward to the 2nd gen model.
Pros Slide out keyboard, something different and build quality.. To some it might be to big, but to me it is just fine.
Cons Non with the phone, mostly software related. Windows needs to step up it's marketplace and make the phone more user customizable. You can see the potential in this phone. Windows just needs to tighten up and go all out if it plans on taking on da A's
Summary Damn good phone as I stated earlier..The screen is gorgeous. The keypad is a 8 out of 10 not bad but to cramped. The look and feel is professional. When I unboxed the phone I said money well spent. Not the upgrade price mind you the 449.00 plus tax. In all if your looking for something different and have patience with windows and it's marketplace I highly recommend the Dell Venue Pro..
Pros This thing feels super high quality. Wrapped in the Otterbox case (also great), I won't go anywhere without it. The only real downside that I see so far is that I can't stop playing with it. Great Job, Dell.
Cons None so far. Not one lock up, reboot or anything in the first week. Great piece of hardware, and I like the T-Mobile service as well.
Pros The phone has a nice quality feel. Windows 7 takes some time to get used to, but is ok once you are with it for a week or two.
Cons The blue tooth sound quality is horrible. It only connects to the car about 20% of time. If you manually pair, it will work about 50% of the time. I am making the Dell go away for this reason among others. My Saga always worked and sounded great.
Summary I would not recommend the this phone until they get the bugs out.....
