The Dell Venue 8 Pro has just picked up its fifth BIOS version, and so far from what we have gathered on the ground, it does seem as though response to this BIOS version has been positive – which is a good thing, of course. Those who have given it a go have reported that the battery life has lasted longer than normal, although there were some pockets of users who did report that they have decided to stick to the third version of the BIOS because the updates since then have one nothing but to decrease battery life according to their experience.
Those who are on Tablet PC Review forums have reported cooler temperatures after using the benchmark software, never mind that programs which normally resulted in the Dell Venue Pro 8 getting all warmed up were run. In addition, performance increases were also discussed, and generally speaking, the ‘feel good’ factor ought to see more and more folks jump aboard the BIOS upgrade bandwagon. Apart from that, considering how the Windows 8.1 Update 1 is drawing nearer, one ought to be able to check out additional improvements made in terms of system efficiency.
