The Venue 8 features a 1,280x800-pixel resolution screen, which isn't particularly high or impressive compared with what's out there, but HD video still looked clear and sharp.

No longer must we agonize over pixelization, just because its 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 IPS LCD Retina Display is glorious for its sharp visuals and strong details.

Actually, it pretty much follows the same formula from before, since it’s armed with the same 5-megapixel snapper.

Truthfully, the iPad mini is packing a 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 processor with 512MB of RAM, which isn’t all that spectacular on paper when compared to other things out there.

Processor and Memory Yes, it’s small and all, but don’t let its diminutive size fool you – that’s because it’s powered by a monster processor under the hood.
