But this is not a final test.
1) The Dell had over ten things open. I closed them all. I think I should have done a full reboot.
2) That’s not the latest version of Foxit Mobile PDF. The Dell wasn’t set up with a Google Play Store account. And APK Downloader was having the vapors and wasn’t working. So I had to grab the older version of Foxit Mobile PDF I had socked away at Google Docs for such an emergency.
As a point of comparison, here’s my video of the Nexus 9 with the full version — not iOS abbreviated one, above — of The American Magazine combined with the latest version of Foxit Mobile PDF:
Quite a difference, huh?
I wonder how much of that difference is due to Android 5.0?
A true test of the Dell Venue 8 7000/7840 remains to be done.
And maybe Dell should chop-chop hurry up with that Android 5.0 update too. (But since this is an Intel CPU, that update has to be finished by Intel, not Google.)
