On-the-go students, mobile professionals, and active families will find Streak's web-browsing capabilities as natural as a laptop.

Top Customer Reviews
I had htc tytn, fuze, nokia n900, iphone 3gs and they all look and feel like ordinary phones, nothing really special about them.
But this monster has changed and revolutionized the way I think and feel about phone.
The design is mouth watering, hard solid, it feels so secure in my hands.
The display is eye popping. It may not have IPS screen or Super Amoled display, but it's still a bright and crispy display.
The screen size is big enough for me to leave the 'pinch zoom in and out' away upon browsing the web.
The OS is sick (still running android 1.6 but soon to be froyo 2.2).
>>Update: Software is a bit buggy and may go blank screen for seconds but I can live with it. Not to mention the up coming update (android 2.2)
Battery life is pretty descent, standard smart phone, 1 fully charged per day.
And hey, you wont see 'everybody', I mean ANY body around the corner using this phone!!
For me, that's essential.
Looks and Appearance: Very slick and sharp build and amazingly thin. As far as size is concern, it is what it is and either you like the size or you don't. If you are a light phone user and will use the Streak more for the web, I would recommend this device.
Handling and Buttons: I took points off here since Dell could have done a better job. Power button could have been better positioned at the top of the phone instead of lining up side by side to the camera and up/down volume controls. One could easily turn the device off accidentally if device is held to the ears.
Pin Connector: Using a standard USB cable with mini-usb would have made everyone's life a lot easier. Instead Dell has to develop its own unique USB-Pin connector. Connecting the pins to the device can be tricky business since it does not attached easily and one could easily damage the pinheads in a matter of time.
Sound Quality: Have to say that the speaker phone is far superior than the Iphone. Only problem is speaker sound tends to be thinny without bass as some reviews have already indicated here.
Battery Life: Not very impressive but then again this device carries a 5" screen which sucks power.Read more ›
Let's start with the size, which I'm sure a lot of you are wondering about. It is, suffice to say: huge. It's got a giant screen. Luckly, most of the phone is screen, so there's not much else around the edge as far as bezel goes. This is a good thing. The 3 touch-sensitive buttons on the bottom of the phone are all you really need. Honestly, I really only ever use 2 of them all the time, but there are occasions where I do find myself reaching for the Home button to get back to my main screen after doing so much between beginning and end.
The build quality of the phone is phenomenal. It feels like a solid piece of technology, and that's because it is. It's made of high quality materials all around, front to back, top to bottom. It's got Gorilla Glass! I mean, come on! You will probably never see a scratch on this beautiful screen.
So you may have heard that the Streak comes with an "out-of-date" version of Android. This is the biggest complaint I've heard from users. Let me tell you this: It's fast. If the Streak is fast with Android v1.6, imagine what it'll be like when it's running Froyo (v2.2). Oh and it will. Look, Dell may not be giving any info about when they're releasing it, but they're going to be updating UK Streaks to 2.1, so they're obviously doing it. Calm down, take a breath. This thing is a monster with 1.6, its going to be a god with 2.2.Read more ›
The negativity ended the moment the Streak arrived and I started working with it. It was the very "tweener" device that actually met my needs: It is a phone and, with the built in Nuance voice function, can be used handsfree with bluetooth; it is big, to be sure, but it fits easily in a shirt pocket, and because of its thinness, it's not that bulky -- and it is does everything else wonderfully well. You can easily read Kindle and other e-books on it (I have Bible software in Hebrew and Greek with the fonts very sharp and clear); the calendar and email functions are excellent, given the screen size, along with the web browsing; the Android Apps work very well in the format, and it is quite fast; and you have it wherever you go (rather than having to carry around a second, larger device along with your phone). In fact, for those iPad users who point out that the Streak is too big -- may I ask if you can put the iPad in your shirt pocket (or purse)?Read more ›
