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.

Frankly, it might not turn heads, but when it comes to real-world performance, it has enough processing power to get by with most tasks – especially with more processor intensive ones like gaming, as it’s able to exhibit instantaneous and fluid executions with nearly everything we threw at it.

The really impressive feat of the iPad Mini, the surprise, is that it seems to handle all the iPad's normal duties while being shrunken down.
