Hope will come out with larger screen size
I've had my Streak 7 for about 4 months now. I use it extensively and have had NO problems. I also own several other Sell systems and customer support has been excellent. The Streak is small, light and easy to use. I'm even writing this review months Streak! Eagerly anticipating the 3.2 upgrade.
As you all know Androids can do all wonders even more than an Iphone. My Everyday Life,Movement,Activities,Entertainment.....all zip into my SUPERB RED DELL STREAK........From Videos..Youtubing..to socialising ... Facebook, twitter...Live TV n Soccer matches thru Flash supported browser....to gaming...FIFA12,PES12....not forgetting AngryBirds.....hahaha...Awesome and loving it!!!! Overclocked 1.2Ghz
I bought this with a laptop purchase. I needed something to have by the bedside at night. My phone is too small and the new laptop was going to be way too big. I got the Streak as a package with the laptop so the price was just right. I find I use the streak everywhere in the house. I also bring it with me to mobile vend at horseshows I use it to show customers my custom products, its just a great handy tool to have around. I likely spend more money online with it because I can shop anywhere. I haven't had any issues with the battery, but I don't play games on it at all.
I have had my streak 7 a year now and even with froyo 2.2 its great. I bought it as an e reader but now do scheduling to banking on it. Had no problems what so ever. Michel
At 1st, I had to replace my 1st tablet due to a technical difficulty and with Dell excellent customer service , they replaced it with another one right away in a matter of few days.
This Tablet, It even works faster than my computer and I love the mobility and the 7" size which is not too small nor too big. After upgrading it to 3.2 version(Honycomb), I love the set up the way I enjoy my own set up, with excellent display and extrimly fast respond. The sound quality actualy surprised me for such a small device including all applications that comes with it or can be downloaded free thru android market. I am pleased with this last purchase from Dell specially for the price and as always with their excellent customer service that is available to me without waiting or delay. I have purchase this tablet after conducting extensive research and actual seeeing different tablets. once again, I made the righ choice by buying the 7" strak 7 Dell tablet. Anyone who is considering purchasing one, I suggest take a look at Dell Streak 7 Wifi Tablet.
I had purchased a Dell Streak 7 about 6 mos ago, it was a 3g model, and I have to say I returned it within a couple of days, for the price it just didn't seems worth it, so I purchased an iPhone because at the time I also needed a phone well recently I decided to give the Streak 7 another go only this I bought wiFi only version, I don.t know if Dell had made sny changes but this one seems completely differrnt than the 3g version, it's better in always, whatever bugs the other one had this one doesn't
I had some doubts about this device after ordering it because of some of the negative reviews I read. I was worried about the resolution.
But I have to say, I think some people are picky... picky... picky.
Dots in the fonts? I don't see any. The screen looks great. I already have an Acer Iconia A500 10.1" tablet. I'm watching an episode of 30 Rock right now in Moboplayer.
Also, some people have criticized the plastic used in this Android device.
Although I like the A500 I bought, I find it a heavy device and I am not inclined to read books on it. The Dell Streak 7 seems perfect. It's a 7" obviously and a lot lighter.
I haven't used it long enough to comment about battery power. It was easy to join my home wireless network, easy to transfer video and music too. I love it, and I actually like it better than the A500 because i can use my thumbs on the keyboard easier.
I would highly recommend the Streak 7 if you're looking for a small device. If you're worried about the screen, go somewhere and look at the actual device, so you can judge yourself.
It's mobility vs my laptop is great. I barely use my laptop anymore. I love this device and I'm glad that I brought it.
Despite being a bit on the bigger side this smart phone/tablet is so versatile! The screen is always responsive and I have yet to come across any app that stalls or quits for no reason. Obviously the size is the main issue here but if you connect to a bluetooth headset its a definite must have device! An upside to the size is that I never have to squint to see anything, and rarely to i have to magnify webpages. Another plus to this device is the camera/video capability! The videos the I've recorded on my streak are perfect! The mic seems to cancel out excessive noises and works excellent in noisy crowds. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a new phone to try this one out!
What's with all the negativity? For those of you who want an iPad, then go buy one already and stop with the kvetching. Now--on to my review! Pros: relatively light, compact, easy-to-use, idiot-proof. Cons: a tad heavy (but not impossible), not enough cool cases to match--it's ok, I'll make my own I got this as a replacement "auxiliary brain" for my job as a school librarian/sysop. I have to remember test dates, login and password stuff, and I also like to blog on the fly and answer questions on the fly too. This tablet is perfect FOR ME. I can carry it in my purse. The first thing I did was import my Kindle library (and I love my Kindle), but then I also downloaded stuff for NOOK and Alkido. I also went out to the Android market and got some anti-virus for it, just in case. I intend to use this to also help my Seniors with Sesnior Project videos. I like that there is a spot for external memory. Just a heads-up to Dell--why aren't you guys marketing this thing to educators and boards of ed.? Look, folks, e-books are here to stay. If I were a teenager, I'd want one of these with all my textbooks on it, and I'd beg my parents to spring for the extra bluetooth keyboard to make note-taking easier. Why lug around a laptop that mysteriously gains weight when you can just pop this li'l cutie in your purse and use it instead? I just wish Android would make more stuff in the ed. market for older students, such as middle and high school students. This thing has pretty good sound quality, too. Video's not too shabby either. I like it! I like it a lot!
Finally, I can afford a tablet and Dell Streak 7 is AWSOME. Right out of the box it was easy to use, even for a novice like myself. Go ahead buy one you'll love it!
I love this product, it is easy to use with expandability (via SDHC slot) at a great price. I've used both the Streak 5 & 7, owning a 7 has been a great experience. It takes great pictures and video and is easy to sync media with my PC. It's a great travel companion to watch movies, listen to music, surf, email, pictures, video, etc. Not to mention the GPS! I'd recommend Dell introduce a docking device for the vehicle to enable better utilization and heads up display when using the GPS in the car. I also see they introduced a home docking station with HDMI connectivity, I must try this... IT may just replace my AppleTV! The battery life is pretty weak, however if you enter airplane mode this disables the antennas not in use such as GPS and cellular. (at least in my case, I don't use these features often) This keeps the wifi enabled and significantly improves system performance and battery life. (Although the weather app may complain about limited network connectivity, but still works!) Overall, this is a great easy to use product out of the box. It is ultra portable and reliable. Now stop reading the reviews and go get one for yourself!
PROS: Clear large display(anti scratch - gorilla glass rocks). very responsive capacity touch screen (some time auto rotate to landscape and back is not as fast as expected from 1Ghz processor). video playback (.avi file) on rockplayer is lovely. opera browser works perfectly fine(d main reason y i took DS5). Dual flash for back camera. Android market is fast growing from fun to utility apps and what not. Front camera (though not in much use). Hardware button quality is good (u would keep pressing one - since no other way to lock/unlock - like iphone, though u can get an app to just lock the screen with a tap on app). Rest is all fine as expected from a smart phone with Rs 25k price range. CONS: slightly large to fit in a palm and pick a incoming call. camera is not so good in capturing colors. unique connector cable like i-pod but i-pod/phone cables are easily available in neighborhoods, DS5 will take some time (Dell should have opted for usb or mini-usb). No FM. Battery drains fast , blame android OS as well (last for a day max n a half). Speaker at back become mute/inaudible when placed on a soft material like on bed(phone backside is so flat). some times froyo 2.2 os hangs while picking an incoming call - slider does not reach till the dot to unlock and pick call (android OS guys would understand). Bottom line: There is no term called perfect phone like perfect soup for all. I see a good Value-for-Money ratio. -cheers
I've had an iPhone for over 2 years...and I've hated that iPhone for over two years. It was a toy, not a phone. When I finally dropped it (accidentally) into my glass of water in my car a couple of weeks ago, I settled for the Samsung Captivate just to avoid going Apple. Then I heard the streak was out and turned the Captivate back into AT&T and ordered the Streak. Got it today and it is amazing. Loving it after only a day. Way to go, Dell.
Wow!! I dont have words to describe this phone/tablet unit. I'm a former iphone user and not missing it at all!! It was nice but to many restrictions!
This unit has it all and more... Love the fact that I can change things around and personalized it the way I want..
I can't wait to get 2.2 update... so I can enjoy it even more!!
I have had too many phones to even count, but this is by far the best. It really needs to be marketed as a business communicator. It is just the right size for a business person to use as an effective replacement for a phone and netbook. I now have a netbook that is rarely turned on.
I have been anxiously awaiting 2.2 for the bluetooth voice dial feature, and was surprised that this feature is working in Dell's version of 1.6. Dell really needs to let people know this. If I had known this, I would have bought the phone the day it was released.
The inclusion of the Dell suite with a backup and restore for the phone is another very important feature. I think too many people are unaware that most android backup programs do not do a full restorable backup, and even if they do, AT&T blocks the restoration of applications. Learned this doing a full reset of my Samsung Captivate (by the way one of the worst phones out there - no working GPS!!!!)
The screen size is perfect for remote control of office computers. Using Logmein for Android, I can link into my office computers and remote control them.
Very pleased, only complaint is that Dell marketing isn't letting people know the features important to a business person, it would sell a lot more Streaks.
Much better phone than I expected, better than the teo iphones I Expected had hands down. The best internet device I've used to date, fast, large, easy to use and see, love the numbers pad, don't have to shift. Yes it's big you get used to it after a while.
A perfect specimen of the best of both worlds.... a confluence-par-excellence of tablets and smartphones.... the gorgeous screen itself will a magnet for eyeballs... butter smooth operation with razor sharp accuracy...and now with froyo all the android goodies will further add on to what is already a masterpiece!!!! Three Cheers for DELL...
ALL IZ WELL when its DELL.
