The front body is made up of highly durable plastic whereas the rear cover is made up of metal.

The salient feature of the Dell Streak is its gigantic 5 inch capacitive2 display screen that has a display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Even though the display is big, it fades out when viewed from different angles. The display is very bright and you will have no problems in using the Dell Streak outdoors. Below the display, there are three touch sensitive Android buttons: Home, Menu and Back.

Above the display, you can find the earpiece along with the proximity sensor and front facing camera. On the right side of the Dell Streak, there is a volume controller, power button, camera shutter button and 3.5 mm audio headset jack. On the left there is a 30-pin proprietary connector. There are no buttons on the top and bottom side of the Dell Streak. Flipping the phone to its back will let you see the 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash.

The worst thing about Dell Streak is that it has got Android v1.6 (Donut) OS. New smartphones are looking forward to launch with the latest Gingerbread OS, however Dell Streak only manages to come with obsolete Android OS. The phone runs on 1GHz Snapdragon processor. You can personalize the phone by adding widgets, shortcuts and folders. You can sync the address book with your Gmail contacts and buddies on Facebook and Twitter. Another sad thing about this phone is that the on-screen keyboard has small sized keys even thought the phone has a large display.
