    Did you pick up the Dell Venue 8 7840 or the less expensive Dell Venue 8. If you did get a 7000 model for $188, where did you find it?

    Dell ran a promotion a few week's back in their "Outlet" section on the site which sold refurbished Venue 8 7840's for discounted prices.They ran a $100 off coupon on the tablet at the same time. I picked a refurbed unit for $316.30-$100 coupon w/ free shipping + tax = $229.82 to my door. Other than the generic brown box it came in, the tablet was in brand new condition with the same one year warranty.

    The 7000 series, the 7840 to be specific. I got it refurbed through the Dell site for $289, then there was also a coupon code for $100 off. I couldn't pass it up.

    Does anybody have an issue with how hot this tablet gets? I was playing 'Clash Of Clans' and it got to the point where I was struggling to hold in between the cameras.

    It certainly warms up, but no more than any other tablet I've ever had.

    Actually the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 screen is a super AMOLED, and this is a totally different OLED panel

    I have a 32GB V8-7K en route to my house. I've been using an iPad 2 since the day it was released 3/11/11. Now it is quite laggy with iOS 9 and Safari keeps locking up and closing out. I'm a bit nervous whether I'll get used to the smaller size. I'll have Lollipop 5.0.2 on it when it arrives. Should I have concerns with the 5.1 upgrade? Do the speaker issues still exist with that upgrade?

    I know it's been a while, but how do you know the Venue 8 supports Apt-X? I'm trying high and low to find documentation on this, but nothing indicates it does support it.

    I also checked my device logfile when pairing it with my apt-X compatible headphones, and there is no mention of Apt-X either.

    The V8 is Intel and Apt-X is Qualcomm technology... So can only assume "no". But this is just speculation.

    Edit: Asus makes a tablet with Intel Atom processor that supports Apt-X, so disregard the above... Sounds like it is possible.

    Quick update: I bought an Avantree Saturn Pro Transmitter/Receiver just to test this, because it has a status LED that indicates the exact Audio Mode used. According to this, the Dell Venue 8 7840 does NOT have apt-X support.
