Dell is not a specilize player for Smart Mobile industry. see the performance comparison with Samsung Galaxy S11 and the Dell streak. far below the standeards. Dell should not wast time to meddling with Mobile phone industry and they don't know the competitor standeards.
This phone was a gift by my sister. I had it updated to android 2.2 over-the-air, so far the interface is great. I do admit that its too bulky and the battery life is rather short specially when using wi-fi.

However it is poorly made. Mine developed a hardware fault after a few months causing the phone to reset after 5 minutes of usage and is unusable. If it worked i would rate it 10/10, but ive heard lots of bad faults and tales by googling.
Currently being "fixed" but i wont trust fix, as people have reported getting it "fixed" more than 3 times.
I have had my streak for nearly a year & love it ! I am sad it is no longer being built as I would like to upgrade to one with a dual core cpu & icecream sandwich ! I have a stock froyo build which is great, but agree the stock Dell launcher (stage) is not so good & disabled it very early on. I have never had any issues with battery life which is as good as the iphone I used to have & my work blackberry. It does need to be put on charge each night, like any smartphone & I would recommend the desk stand. I am considering buying another 2nd hand streak so that I can investigate some of the custom roms available, but as hardware specs have moved on, it would need to be cheap. It is fantastic as a satnav, really easy to type on in landscape mode, a great video/music player & slim enough to fit in a jacket pocket with ease. Perfect for me, more of the same please Dell !
Dell Streak is not enough. I am a user of Samsung Galaxy S and the user of S11. and waiting to buy Galaxy Note. while in this I thought of trying to go for Dell streak since phone is handy and smart with at a price advance. at present I received a phone to temporaly use. My feeling is Dell is not enough and company is still biginer of phone manufacturing. And they have to go long way on phone industry.Samsung and Dell is at a big gap on performances.This information should read by Dell. if you want further information please contact me on uditha. firstname.lastname@example.org

First thing I did was replace it. I can't tell you which replacement to use, you'll have to figure out that for yourself but there are a few on the market that are very good.

Its a great tablet phone i am using frm last 8 months i dnt have any issue if u want a sm smart tablet u can blindly go fr it
I barely had it for two weeks and the phone has gone bad, smelled something burning not from the battery panel but from the simcard slot. Screen displayed it can't detect sim and powered off. Never turned on again. Is there any known issues abt the sim card reader overheating on this?
ankur agarwal, 24 Sep 2011dont buy this....a very simple advice..if u want to waste ur money than this can be the right ... moreI had this same issue immediately after unboxing it and doing the update to Froyo 2.2. After talking with Rogers tech support and doing a factory reset the result was the same. He promptly shipped out a new unit which has not arrived yet. In the meantime, I removed the microSD card and all was good. Once the microSD card was inserted it would hang again. Same problem? Resolved this issue by formatting the microSD card and any corruption that had previously been on the card was wiped out with the format. Dell Streak works properly now and issue was not with the Streak, but with the supplied 16GB microSD card. Hope this helps!!
