Anonymous, 02 Jan 2011the internal where got 16gb...bluff leh...i see only 1.5gb...anyhow only...dude internal is 2GB and u get a 16GB micro SD card along with it
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2011U dnt hve it or u cant afford it dats y ur saying bad bout dis fone hahaa get a life u eriotic... morenow ain't that a simple conclusion Dude!! by the way..who said someonecant comment on something if he cant afford it !! i cant afford a ferrari but i still comment;dont i? the point is the Streak will get as many followers as detractors. I find it a bit confusing. Should i call it a tablet or a phone? its definitely too big to go in your jeans pocket..infact your front pockets have to be reinforced with rivets coz this thing is H..E..A...V..Y.. i mean it. but what a screen!! infact its better than most PMPs. Including Archos handheld.. I think it was brave of Dell to launch the Streak but being an ex Dell employee i think its time. Love it..hate it..love it..hate it.. dunno !! i guess its too heavy for me So i m happy with my BB 9630 !! and all who can afford it and have a taste for heavy phones..Congrats...you wont regret it !!
Dell Streak opinions:
I've recently got a hold of this device. It is great one, great job Dell!
I am not referring to the paper technical details but to the actual hands on experience, maybe there are some better ones in terms of technical specifications.
+great form factor/display size
+processor (which is a little bit to fast, I would choose more memory over proc. power)
+battery life, but only if you are careful with the power management (screen timeout, running apps, running services (Bluetooth, wifi, gps). I am only referring to the updated android 2.2 version. +workmanship of the device. The device is well made, good materials, well assembled. The details do matter and Dell chose a 1530mAh Lithium Polymer battery type, the best type there is. It is made by a Japanese company and only assembled in China. Compared to the other cell phone batteries Dell went out of their way in order to provide their device with a quality battery (more mAh would be better). The used materials for the manufacturing and the technical specs of the battery they all say quality. I guess at the other end of what Dell offers is Motorola with the worst batteries Iíve seen. Itís also very important to distinguish in between the issues caused by the operating system and the ones caused by the cell phone manufacturer. The Os itself doesnít come with to much software loaded on it and I really appreciate Dell for choosing this.
-power button functions
if you are talking and the screen turns off ( due to the short light time out period to save battery life) by pressing the power button to return the screen from stand by will also end the active call ( this is what happened to me while I had a talk with my cell phoneís network provider after waiting in the queue to speak with them. Iíve tried to turn on the screen to access the settings according to the instructions given the support, to set up the Internet access on it, and guess what, it ended my active call. The sideways touch sensitive buttons donít turn the screen on either, only the power button has this function. Dell please address this as it seriously affects the battery life ( because I need to put a no light time out period in order to keep the screen lit. the power button function seriously affects the way the phone calls are being handled as well !
- touch sensitive buttons on the side are no so touch sensitive. I am disappointed with the sideways touch sensitive buttons that require repetitive and more powerful presses. I guess this is again related to the screen standby mode so it could be more of a software issue. Probably some real hardware buttons will be better.
- display coating. the display could use a better, dry fingers friendly coating. Sometimes I feel my fingers burning because of the grip they have on the screen, itís not something major but that could be improved on the next generation of Streaks.
- battery cover dependability for keeping the device on, the way the device turns itself off when you take the cover of the battery. Eg. Because of a tiny space gap in between the phoneís body and the battery cover, the phoneís cover cloth got caught in that tiny space and I couldnít get it out. I needed to take the cover of the battery out to untie the cloth case of the phone and the phone turned off, while in the middle of a call. It wouldnít be such an issue but because of the Android os and the way all the software/processes starts itself at boot up It takes a while to turn all of them off in order to make sure the battery wonít be wasted by unnecessary software running in the background.
These issues connected one to each other can get annoying.
I am keeping close the Nokia E72 anyway, itís very reliable so I wonít give up on it completely. After testing the battery life on an Iphone 4, Streak and a Nokia, I am definitely starting to appreciate what Nokia and Symbian are offering. Iphone 4 ranked the worst for battery life but it offers the best screen quality and lag free operation. The job I have gives me the opportunity to interact with the latest devices or seeing lots of devices of the same type in various scenarios. Iíve recently had an Iphone4 that I needed to restart 4 times in order to make it react to my key presses on the screen. Myself and the owner were shocked. Due to the screen resolution and some other factors the battery life on the Iphone4 is terrible, itís a gorgeous device but for me Streak wins over the Iphone.
Overall I think this is the best smartphone on the market for the needs I have. I tend to read documents on the go (various books, word documents, pdf files) besides the usual browsing and Internet related activities so the form factory, size helps me a lot.
Everything Iíve shared/wrote is based on my personal opinions and expresses my personal views on the devices Iíve came across.
Amazing phone better that any other phone made by any other provider The only thing that i did not like is the battery cover as its a little weird dont think
believe in me, 03 Jan 2011this is too big to be a phone. and too small for a tablet. DELL has lost its mind. they think ... moreU dnt hve it or u cant afford it dats y ur saying bad bout dis fone hahaa get a life u eriotic fool,u dnt hve any sense of mobile plus u dnt hve money to buy it dats d reason ur saying bad bout dis fone n who cares but ur stupid comment.
Tanz, 30 Dec 2010The fone is gr8,though the size is huge dats according to me is the plus point its different ... morethis is too big to be a phone. and too small for a tablet. DELL has lost its mind. they think they will gain market share with this phone. but its gonna shrink. very few idiot people like you will buy this pho-tab (neither pho-ne nor tab-let). As a result dell will discontinue its support for this pho-tab. No updates, no nothing. Useless
I've recently got a hold of this device. It is great, glod job Dell. I really do hope that you won't drop the support for this device, it has it's own flaws but overall I think It might be the best device on the market right now. I am not referring to the paper technical details but to the actual hands on experience. Pros: great form factor/DISPLAY size
processor, memory, screen
Battery life, but only if you are very strict on the power management(screen timeout, running apps, running services(bluetooth, wifi, gps, ). I am only referring to the updated android 2.2 version.
Cons: if you are talking and the screen goes off pressing tbe power button to return the screen from stand by will also end the active call ( I was online with support of the mobile netw. after waiting in line and when trying to get the screen lit the power button ended my call. Dell please address this Asap.
The touch senzitive buttons on the side are no so touch sensitive, maybe some hardware buttons will do better.
it not a good one..go for galaxy tab...it is much better then this idiotic thing..

Anurag, 02 Jan 2011please help me dell sreak is better or samsung galaxy s .is vedio calling is better in dell streakI will prefer the Dell Streak with the 2.2 updates. I sold my Samsung Captivate to buy Dell Streak. I will recommend you buy the Samsung Galaxy S which has a Front Facing Camera I'm sure is better than Dell Streak.
mukesh ambani, 29 Dec 2010I have used the video calling feature on Dell Streak. Go ahead and buy it. It's really good.please help me dell sreak is better or samsung galaxy s .is vedio calling is better in dell streak
Dr.Harsh, 01 Jan 2011Well I really am interested in buying this phone, just that I dont have 3G access in my city y... moreYou can use the Dell Streak with 2G Network and Wi-Fi. You can get updates and other features by connecting to Wi-Fi which I'm presently using at home instead of wasting money on 3G network on AT&T.
