Dell Streak review


Possibly one of the most anticipated Dell products this year, will the Dell Streak change the way we view portable computing?

Huge, responsive screen; slim; Wi-Fi and fast HSPA connectivity; easy to sync media with a desktop computer; update to Android 2.2 is on the way this year; possible to type with thumbs; expandable memory; access to apps on Android Market

Version 1.6 of Android is relatively old; no multitouch capability in Google Maps; no Google Maps Navigation; fiddly keyboard; Android user interface hasn't been tweaked enough to fully take advantage of the big screen

We're craving an Android tablet to challenge the iPad, but the Dell Streak merely whets our appetite. The Streak's sleek, powerful hardware is let down by the presence of a relatively old version of Android, and is a considerable sum of money to drop...

Was in a Starhub shop 2days ago and saw the Dell Steak.Felt strange that why there were a huge crowd in Starhub but nobody was testing and playing with the new Dell launch.Went forward I found that the 2 sets were down with software error(display) on...

Smaller than normal tablet

Bigger than a mobile phone

"The best smart phone period."


All those which give it a poor rating due to carrier issues are misguided. I am from Australia, and this phone is fantastic. I give it a 10/10 as it does everything I want.Obviously the 5" inch screen size doesn't appeal to everyone, so this is the...

Great specs, size, and performance

Frankly till date i have never looked beyond HTC for large phones. I've used the Desire's the Hd2's & entered the shop 2 solely buy the HTC Desire HD or Z. A chance comment by the shop owner and withing 2 minutes i had NO doubt that i wanted the Dell...

Stunning screen, Responsive touch, unbeatable browsing experience

Minor niggles in software, Backlid quite dicey

"Great iPad replacement device !"


For those who find iPads big and heavy to handhold for long periods at a time, the Dell Streak may be what you're looking for. It's much smaller and lighter but still affords a comfortable screen for extended viewing. As a phone, it's a bit too big,...

Size and weight; Fast response; Phone function

Odd Button/Port placement; Proprietary sync cable

Great piece of kit now - will be lots better after the upgrade to Android 2.2

Slips into jeans pocket easily - fast responses

Need to use earphone if calling in noisy places

"Android 1.6 + AT&T Service = LOSER !"


Geniuses at Dell? I think NOT. At the rate Dell is going, in 2011 I expect them to introduce a great-looking pad that running Windows ME and using 56K dial-up internet service.

Nicer cosmetic design

Android 1.6, AT&T Service
