i ordered my dell streak a few days back.. expecting it any moment.. i am regretting my buying decision.. after i ordered it, i re ad on mydellmini forum the numerous cases of the display getting thrashed with the slightest drop (but, nothing happens to the gorilla glass) and the very expensive dell streak accessories which can be bought only from dell, coz, there are not many 3rd party vendors manufacturing it.. Worst buying decision in a long timt.. Dell is HELL.
It Would Be A Nice One If It's Body Structure Would Be Strong.
FIE Dell !
dude eclair does not have flash player...its froyo update has flash !! dont mis-guide ppl...i ve been using the streak fer the past 3 months.... the phone is great...its fully loaded after updating to froyo OS....battery life is suited fr one working day...display clarity is great...the phone is sleek and not like galaxy tab (box-like)...between galaxy tab nd streak i wud surely reco the streak because of the scorpion processor which is gr8 and a typical dell product...
A word on Gorilla Glass. Its not indestructible. Its more resistant than normal glass and by far. I have seen a Dell Streak with a cracked glass. Thankfully it was under warranty (private warranty offered by the store). The value of the glass alone is 14.5k (Indian rupees).
Mrinal, 05 Feb 2011Buddy you are the person who changed my mind for buying this costly phone. This is arrpox rs. ... moreBuddy, this one has a gorilla glass to protect the display... Gorilla glass is what is used to make helicopter windshield and simply put, its indestructible glass... Nonetheless, I have heard cases of display getting damaged on dropping... My sincere advise would be to buy a body cover (case mate - shouldn't cost more than Rs.1,500) to offer some protection to your Rs.34,000 cell phone... I think anyone buying a high-end touchscreen phone would definitely do that...

London Uder, 31 Jan 2011It is a beautiful device, ideal for internet and e-reading. The camera and video are excellent... moreBuddy you are the person who changed my mind for buying this costly phone. This is arrpox rs. 34000 in india. And if by any chance i drop it, will loose everything. Agree what you say, screen size is really good but if not sturdy its better to look for some other phone.

patrick, 04 Feb 2011Does anyone know if the device is ebook capable -Yes, it is pretty good with eBooks especially when you use a dedicated app such as Aldiko. You'd better convert the books to ePub format before reading. For PDF files, though, the screen is too small to read.
patrick, 04 Feb 2011Does anyone know if the device is ebook capable -yeah thers quite a few apps
hey guys, just need some advice, on my second streak, as my 1st one charging port went, now with this one, when ever i try to down load any thing, it crashes reboots, tries to download, crashes and repeats, any ideas???
AnonD-571, 02 Feb 2011i brought this cell on 30th jan and on 1st day this cell got dead n than didnt got start ... moreIt looks like a bad keyboard also. You are missing a lot of letters in your post.
Just wanted to know if the phone is convinient enuf to attend calls without a bluetooth device?
And also if the device is handy enough for Jeans or may be trousers?
I've had my streak since december when the froyo update was released. I absolutely love it. Very underrated product. Obviously not for smaller hands, though. Great for watching movies, playing games, surfing net, camera use, texting, etc. Dual camera feature is awesome, but still waiting for fring and tango to support the front facing cam. Oovoo works great in their stead. Don't hesitate to buy. Perfect size and awesome froyo features and connectivity
i brought this cell on 30th jan and on 1st day this cell got dead n than didnt got start nw have send it for D.U lets see wat happens cnt even see the menu of the cell
I've been using mine for already a month so I can say a few things about it:
Pros: good performance, huge screen(gr8 4 eBooks, video, youtube, photos etc.), looks nice without the huge Otterbox case which I got for it, good call sound but a bit weak, great OS functionality with Froyo 2.2.
Cons: inferior sound quality - flat sound and not loud enough by any means, fragile(mine fell once and I see green color underneath the Gorilla Glass in the corner), no mini USB, camera quality is inferior even to Galaxy S not to mention iPhone 4.
