Advantages: Big screen and amazing features
Disadvantages: Android 1.6
I have been waiting to be able to revew the Dell Streak for a while now since it has been released in the UK. I purchased this directly from O2 as I just had to purchase it as I think it is a next step up from your usual smartphone.
The price of the Dell Streak varies from retailer I got it from O2 for £399 but I have this phone for £429. I think the price really does reflect good value for money for what it actually includes compared to a lot of other phones.
I think that the main feature you will notice about this phone is the fact that it has a colossal 5" which is fantastic to watch video or view photos on. Other features include Android 1.6 which is expected to be upgraded to version 2.0 by September time which is a must.
I have heard people say this is very difficult to use with it being that big and you can not use it as a phone. Don't get me wrong im not going to say it is the easiest phone in the world but you should know that before you buy it. I find it easy to use as a phone even though you may look like a numpty holding it to your ear. Apart from that I find texting very simple on the tablet also.
The battery life on the Streak was not as bad as I actually thought it would be. I expected it to last literally a few hours with it being so high in technology. I find that I can easily get a day or more out of it if I am careful.
Overall I would rather this as the best smartphone/tablet on the market today. I think it offers everything that you would need and MORE. Even though £399 might seem like a big commitment for something which is not tried and tested but i really do recommend trying it out becuase once you do you will be happy you did.
Summary: Even though it only supports android 1.6 it is still he ebst thing out on the market today
