    Between the various sales, discounts and all around good word-of-mouth, the Dell Venue 8 Pro, featuring Windows 8 (x86) on an 8-inch tablet, has become a mini-hit this holiday season. In fact, we wouldnt be surprised if many arent given out as Christmas gifts in two days.
    One complaint about the otherwise stellar device is the ambient light sensor. Out of the box, the brightness on the Dell is very dim. Thats surprising if only because throwing it into manual control (instead of the default auto adjust), youre treated to a very bright displayeasily the brightest of the all the 8-inch Windows tablets on the market. The reason its so dim? To preserve battery life and rake up that 10 hour rating. Unfortunately, Dells settings are too aggressive.
    Luckily, they seem to be listening. A new patch came out a few days ago, featuring new ambient light sensor settings, which will optimize them for better performance. The update is just 2 MB and it will only take you a few moments to install.
