I have been using Streak for about an year. I purchased it for it's ideal carrying size and features. I also expected routine Android upgrades. I don't think I will rate the overall experience as great. Original one had to be replaced due to issues in the camera, in India simple and must have accessories like carrying case is not available. I dropped it, which spoiled the LCD. Replacement cost me a bomb. Then over the period of time, the connector got spoiled.. another cost. I noticed that Dell quietly withdrew this model from the market. Overall, I spent enough money to buy a very decent laptop. I am now convinced that I will buy my next phone from a company who is very serious about their mobile business.
hi guys those who compare streak with s2 should know that s2 is only up with software not hardware,s2 is made of plastic while dell body is mettallic and the screen i prefer dell since s2 screen looks quite artificial instead of natural colours love my dell.battery life is superb only need to know that close down unnecessary applications running at background
its jst a superb experience using this phn... awesome display and fast browsing... marvellous,,,...
I've got the Dell Streak 7 Tablet. It works well. Some nice apps on it. It uses Android 2.2
But, on the downside....those who purchased it from T-Mobile won't be able to upgrade to Honeycomb 3.2. T-Mobile customers are "locked" into T-Mobile. And, T-Mobile won't allow their customers to do this upgrade. And, Dell, the owner of the Honeycomb 3.2 software, isn't partnershipping with T-Mobile.
Otherwise, I'm happy with the Dell Streak 7 Tablet.
i bought this one...upgraded to 2.2 ... and i am really happy with the phone..since i am a tech freak..i loved the screen..and extremely fast internet...highly suggested for expert users
hey i use these phone from 2 month. these are really a great phone. but these phone repairing is very costly
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
my dell streak has battery error and can't charge after use of 3 months..there is also some error while installing some softwares...but the company change me a new one today...though i'm incomfortable about my old one,i really appreciate that they took the full responsibility of their products...thx :)
