coffeeking, 15 Nov 2010And why would people by a 60" HDTV with 1080p when smaller 42" HDTVs have 1080p? :P
... moreThe difference is that with TV one can sit at diferent distances from it to adjust to the screen size, on the other hand cellphone or tab you are always handling it, so the distance of your eyes to the gadget is always the same.
This critic I extent to Galaxy pad and Ipad too, both have too low resolution for their size. Just to ilustrate, Iphone 4 with 3,5" (960x640) has almost the resolution de Ipad 9,7" (1024x768), although the latter has a screen area 7 times bigger.

I too experienced it and later observed that I was holding the phone in such a way that my hand or sometimes a finger was covering the sensors. They are light sensitive and if u cover them while u have an incoming call, the screen becomes dark and non responsive.

Don't get me wrong though -- I also think a higher resolution would be better, but hat applies to everything.
I have only owned this phone for a 5 days and its giving me grief when I try to answer a incoming call.
I tap and tap and sometimes the call runs out before I get to answer, does anyone else have trouble.
I dont understand this hardware. What is the point of getting a 5" screen size cellphone/tab with the same 800x480 resolution screen of a smaller cellphone like galaxy S, or even worse comparing to 854x480 from Xperia X10. I think one get a bigger screen to put more content inside, but in this case one get the bigger screen but it doesnt add more resolution.
I can imagine only one reason to need this screen and it is in case of poor sight that demand bigger pixels.
To be fair and worth, it should be 1024x600.

Hi dell steak owners,

I lost my battery today becoz of that.
ashish, 11 Nov 2010Can u tell me how to update from 1.6 to 2.1
the infos on google....
1. Download the Android 2.1 for Dell Streak and rename it into “Update.pkg”.
2. Connect the cellphone to the PC using an USB cable and copy the Update.pkg file onto the root of your microSD card ( not into a folder ).
3. Power Off the smartphone.
4. Now hold down the “Volume Up” button and power up the phone. This will take you into the recovery mode. Choose the second option in the menu.
5. Wait for the process to complete and for the phone to restart.

Anonymous, 09 Nov 2010how does one go about updating to 2.2If you are trying to upgrade to upgrade 2.2 you should go to MoNaCo forums, they have the best upgrade and downgrade guides around. Inside the MoDaCo forum there is a DellStreak section.
Hi to all Proud owners of Streak
i needed to know will i be able to type documents rich in format or to put it straight sumthing like MS Word.
Thanks n enjoy ur STREAKS !
I absolutely loved the size of the phone but there were so many misses, Froyo for one, camera was poor. The back cover, the excellent metallic one got scratched really easily and it was just too easy to shut the phone, the cover just had to be a little loose.
But I miss the big screen!
