Pros Excellent size for my need. Android 2.2 is amazing, apps work beautifully. Great for taking my textbooks on the go. I absolutely love the interface and all the options. Wifi capability is great, but At&t's data rates are absurd when no wifi is avai
Cons Screen breaks easily. Camera only good for still shots. No answer key, forced to use Android slide to answer calls. Camera button doesn't always activate the camera (on all four streaks I had). Very glitchy, and sensitive phone. Gorrilla glass may n
Summary The camera is great for still shots, but not for any action shots. They come out blurry. The Un-scratchable Gorrilla glass screen breaks VERY easily. I bought this phone specifically for its size and the ability to view my textbooks for college conveniently, but if I could do it all over again, I would go for an HTC. Very heavy phone, makes it rather hard to get used to. I bought the Otterbox Defender case for it, and its too heavy to use the holster. It falls out when I'm walking, so I have to carry it in my hand. I have gone through 4 Streaks in the first month since my upgrade. The first one lost all contrast on the screen within an hour of purchase. I somehow cracked the screen on the second one (um....Gorilla glass? not such a good idea). The third one froze constantly and would stop working. The screen would lock up and I couldn't answer or make calls or access anything on the phone. The fourth one I dropped and the screen shattered into a million pieces. Granted, that was my fault, but I have dropped my Samsung Eternity a thousand times and never had issues with it. Very unimpressed with this phones glitchyness and weak screen. Not to mention the fact that Geek Squad takes forever to fix anything wrong with it. In the two months since my upgrade, I have had a phone for a total of three weeks. If you are going to get this phone, make sure to purchase a good blue-tooth earpiece, a case that will protect the phones screen and Best Buys Black Tie protection program. It's totally worth it.

Pros Huge screen makes reading, trading, and doing finance actually possible without straining your eyes. You never have to scroll sideways!
Cons The music quality sucks, and the camera is also kind of sucky, although there is a facecam. It's huge, but that really doesn't bother me. It's not that intrusive in the pocket.
Summary I've had the iphone - loved it. i've had a samsung captivate - it was ok. But getting this big phone, I finally morphed into one of those guys that are using the phone all day long. It's such a pleasure to read on this thing! The battery life lasts me all day on HEAVY usage.

Pros SIZE OF THE SCREEN
CORNING GLASS (supposed to be scratch resistant)
Cons Everyting else
Summary Ever since I bought this junk a week ago, i am trying to sync to my PC without success. The Dell Streak is not recognized by my Pc (I tried in two different PCs). On the Dell there is no help offered. Installed drivers but i am getting Code 10 error message from Vista. There are two sync software. One is Dell Pc suite and the other is by Nero. Tried both to no avail.
Wasted enough time. I wish Dell disappears from the face of this earth.
Pros - Platform: This was my first android phone. In spite of the delay getting 2.2,I'm a fan of the navigation that come with. There's a lot about the Iphone that I still miss - a lot of the built-ins were better (mail, clock, Text messaging, itunes).
Cons - The screen: Touch screen is poor quality: I had massive frustration with the responsiveness of the phone. At first I thought the software was freezing up on me, then I realized that it was the touch screen. The Case I'd bought for it was 'touching' the
Summary In the end, what puts me in the market for a new phone already is the combination of the screen issues which meant I couldn't find a case to protect it, and the fact that the phone is really fragile. I dropped it and the screen is messed up. Of course, dropping it makes it out of warranty, so it'd cost me nearly as much to fix it as get a phone that works. I'm getting a phone that works.
Bottom line: I had learned to live with the limitations and was ok with the size (it really is too big to be convenient, but I thought the screen size was totally worth it). Had realized that the touch screen had problems, so removed the case and knew that I needed to be careful of anything else on the screen and my fingers at the edges interfering? But the thing only lasted 6 months. And that's just not ok.
