I have been using Dell Streak 5 since Dec 2010 and I must say this has exceeded my expectations. It works perfect. Ever since I upgraded to Android 2.2.2 it has been even better. Battery life too improved and I am getting it for more than a day with WIFI-ON. Of course for this you need to root your device and I did it. The only complaint I have against Dell streak is the video and photo quality. It is OK but not great (6/10) for shooting videos or taking pictures. But watching Videos - 9/10 or 10/10 (full screen) it will blow you away. Performance of this device depends on the type of applications you use on it. All the communication and social networking apps work perfect. If it had the dual core processor it would have been nice. Overall performance 9/10. It is really awesome phone. And I hope Samsung Galaxy Note or any other company takes it one step ahead. Waiting anxiously for next Gen phones.

My son loves this phone. He sold his iphone 4 as easily got broken after 2 months use. He had this DS5 phone for 6 months and no problem encountered. He loves browsing using this 5" smartphone. Regret Dell stopped selling this phone. Maybe will just wait for SG Note in Philippines.
just swapped a notebook with this. It took a while to decide between the sg tab 7, would anyone know if the android games from the tab are directly compatible with the streak 5? or is it gonna be an entirely different game downloads for this
I have been using it for 6months.. Great phone.. Only two main problems (1)My phone contact are suddenly erased automatically along with call logs.. The contact takes about 5 minuts to come back after sync with Gmail contact... But unfortunately call logs are gone forever. I dint know y contact and logs get erased auto. (2)the phone hangs a lot especially the dialer.
Please suggest what should I do,,, and does the problem happen with all Streak users.?

Check-out the all new Samsung Galaxy Note.
Its the next level to this phone.
This was a good attempt but Samsung has created the Galaxy Note which is truly leading in this category of phone.
Always on the look-out....

todd, 22 Aug 2011I love the streak! I recomend it highly. any questions? just aski just want to know how u guys make a new paragraph in messaging?????
nice phone with large screen,but the software hangs a bit, lot of applications goes to "FORCE CLOSE"
overall due to software latency my rating is 5/10
Hi guys I have been following this forum for a while.My intention was to buy the dell streak but i really wanted a much better spec so i decided to waited for the rumoured Dell Opus. But the way things are going and judging by Dell's handling of the streak, I am not expectant.On the 1st of September, Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy Note with a 5.3inches screen and all round out of this world specs. I immediately lost interest in the dell streak and immediately made up my mind to get the Note once it is out by the end of the year. So I will say SO LONG DELL STREAK.
A word of advise to Dell : You guys need to get your acts together, atimes I wonder if you guys realise you are in a very competitive smartphone market.
to those concerned about the display breaking: it's very thin glass...of course it will break.
my and dells advice is, do not, under any circumstance drop your streak
Ameen, 23 Aug 2011Video calling not supported any one help pleaseUse FRING, and take it from Android Market. It is free.
The phone is great in it's hardware, but looks like it is assembled by some school hobbiest, as the front covers (for the ear piece and touch hot keys)has come off and I had to use double sided stickers to fix it back...!!
