Performance: Web Browsing
Browsing the Web is certainly a key feature of any smartphone, so we also conducted some formal speed tests to see how well the Dell Venue compares to some of today's hottest smartphones.
Throughout our gauntlet of speed tests, you'll notice that the Dell Venue hovered right around the middle of the pack. A little lower on the final test, a little higher in the middle test. That being said, real-world performance felt extremely zippy, and so long as your browsing is contained to the phone, the speeds we were seeing are plenty fast. Tethering is an entirely different topic, but of course requires a solid 3G connection. The good news here is that the phone isn't cramped when it comes to handling data, and we were duly satisfied with load times in our use.
