Dell Streak – Striking Smartphone
What do you generally prefer in a smartphone? It should be thin, light, with a big screen real estate, and packed with features. Don’t you desire to be centre of attraction with a smartphone in your hands when in a crowd? What can be better to become an eye candy when your phone has a large screen which Dell Streak provides along with a striking design?
Screen and Design
It is indeed the 5 inch, 800 x 480 LCD WVGA capacitive multi-touch display that grabs the attention of one and all. Dell has launched its Android based 9.98 mm thick and 220g phone in stiff competition with iPad. Dell’s product is very much pocket-able.
The device has three capacitive buttons – back, menu and home – mic, volume rocker, power and camera buttons, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition, there is a mono-speaker that produces loud sound and at the same time suppresses a good amount of background noise.
Web browsing on this gadget is an exhilarating experience in itself. With the comfort of viewing on a large screen (display is really good even in bright sun) and that too in any of the two modes – landscape or portrait – you can enjoy e-book reading and video playback.
There is a VGA front-facing camera which enables video chat and it is equipped with apps such as Fring and Qik. Another 5mp auto-focus camera with dual flash light is at the back.
Dell Streak with 1GHz Snapdragon enables you to pinch-zoom and its performance is pretty fast.
Apart from the pre-installed Facebook widget and Twitter widget there is preloaded QuikOffice that facilitates you to view Microsoft Office documents.
Dell’s smartphone offers you with pre-loaded 30 days trial of Touchdown which facilitates contacts, calendar and mail sync via Exchange ActiveSync.
You can enjoy AcroSoft Mobile Media Gallery as a ‘Photos & Videos’ app along with the Android Market.
To top it all you have Google Maps for navigation with turn-by-turn voice direction.
Battery and Memory
With 1530mAH battery Streak has 512MB RAM.
The phone has 2GB of system storage along with a micro SD slot for up-to 32GB cards.
Now, the most amazing feature is the battery life of Dell’s smartphone. Any guesses? Well, well, you get a good 12 hours per charge.
Apart from the usual Wi-Fi b/g, Bluetooth, 2.0+ EDR and GPS, digital compass, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor what you can enjoy the most is YouTube videos on a larger screen. The choice is clear. You can have immense fun with the efficient and smart Dell Streak.
