In the Linpack test, the Venue outpaced all of our other benchmarked phones but one, again proving our feelings that Dell's Stage UI didn't do much to bog down performance (if at all). In the 3D test, the phone landed right in the middle of the pack; of course, if you're a hardcore Android gamer, waiting for the Xperia Play seems like the logical choice, but this phone is plenty capable of handling multi-media playback. The SunSpider JavaScript benchmark found the Venue at the top of the heap, just barely edging out the Evo 4G for the crown. Not a bad showing at all.
