Customer Reviews of Dell Venue Pro Unlocked Windows 7 GSM Black Smart Phone
good slider phone with wifi10/13/2014
although I think the buttons are too small..the compact size with all the features make this phone worth it.
phone is nice4/14/2013
The phone has a nice look to it and its appealing. It has a unique look compared to the other smartphones. I like the option of using a keyboard and touch screen.
Excellent phone, but only after upgrading from version 7.0 (which comes installed) to the new 7.5 (using Zune Desktop Software). It is 100% recommended to update as this expands the number applying to the phone software and also corrects a number of bugs and adds several features that were needed. The phone only works on the 3G network on 900MHz, 1700MHz and 2100Mhz bands. The phone is fully unlocked, just insert my SIM card and start using it without problems. Only comes with the display language English. Among the most striking features are the large screen of 4.1" + sliding keyboard which helps you get the entire screen area as a whole but if you prefer we can use an onscreen keyboard as well. The software simplifies communication via social networks unified Windows Live, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, GoogleTalk and SMS in the same category "Messaging" but if you prefer you can download the store apps like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp (only in version 7.5) separately. Easy use of copy / paste, open in new window, search, etc.. The phone is multitasking, simply by leaving the bottom left key vasopressin back (<--) can navigate between different open applications. Supports streaming (like YouTube). Do not support JAVA. Do not support adobe flash. In conclusion it is the best phone I've had in years after spending 5 long years (since 2007) using the platform of RIM (BlackBerry OS). Indeed I was wrong, I would bet that phones running Android or Windows Phone are much better than RIM.
A Fantastic Phone (post firmware update),7/11/2012
This phone is excellent. I purchased this phone in early February of this year and immediately fell in love. Firstly, Windows Phone 7 software is amazing. It works just like the iphone in terms of amazing simplicity, but the presentation is much better. The facebook/contact integration is great and looks great. Zune is on par with itunes, but looks better. Everything looks better on this phone compared to Droid and Iphone, you just have to try it. Live tiles rock and will even get better with the Mango update coming in September. Call quality is great. This phone has very good speakers, games are fun to play on the screen as it has the 2nd biggest screen on a Windows Phone, but is not too big. The battery life last about 1 day, but a litte less with heavy usage, so have a charger at work and one at home
good for a windows phone5/18/2012
From a purely visual standpoint, I'd say the DVP is....flat out cool. The 4.1" display is covered with slightly curved gorilla glass that both looks and feels great. The sides of the phone have a chrome metallic look (it's still plastic) and the back has a texture rich plastic cover with a repeating cut diamond pattern. The top and bottom are beveled with a rubberized coating. Plenty of thought went into the accents, color, and shape of this phone. I have to commend Dell here; they sure know how to design the exterior of a mobile device. Given its professional looks and general rarity among the common public, every time I pull my DVP out in a crowd I always get surprised and wondrous comments and questions. There is also a micro-USB jack on the bottom, a 3.5" headphone jack up top, a decent volume rocker on the right side, a dedicated camera button on the bottom right, power button up top and speaker and mic cut outs on the rubberized bottom. Keeping the speaker and mic off the back of the phone helps when using the speakerphone options, but the power button is a little more difficult to hit than I'd like. I've gotten used to it over time, but it still could be more accessible.
I find this phone well designed from the physical as well as from the software perspective. I think it is easy to use, even if people are not tech savvy.
It's a good buy for an unlocked phone especially for someone who want to try out the new microsoft's mobile OS
