Dell Streak Review

Smartphones like HTC EVO 4G and Motorola DROID X that have features of a tablet pc is becoming quite popular these days. Dell Streak is also a tablet-like smartphone that has got amazing features. The phone is quite bulky as it weighs 220g and measures 152.9 x 79.1 x 10mm. 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.

The 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking high resolution photos outdoor. However, when it comes to snapping images indoors, the quality of the images is not good as it lacks clarity and appears grainy. The dual LED flash is incapable of highlighting subjects beyond 3 feet. You can record videos at 640 x 480 pixels which again is turn off as compared to the contemporary smartphones that allow you to capture 720p videos.

The music player of Dell Streak has a user-friendly interface and plays wide range of formats. The output through the speaker is impressive; however it starts crackling if you play music at highest volume setting. You can play videos of high resolution of 800 x 480 resolution. The phone tends to perform slowly if you play higher resolution videos.

Web connectivity can be done through Wi-Fi and 3G (7.2 Mbps on HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps on HSUPA). The Android browser lacks Flash but still it manages to give you good browsing experience. The Dell Streak has a 1530 mAh standard Li-Ion battery. It gives a standby time of up to 400 hours and talk time of up to 10 hours.

GW620 was the first Android smartphone from LG and the new chic Optimus GT540 is the second Android smartphone from the manufacturer. The phone measures 109 x 54.5 x 12.7mm and weighs only 115g. The body of the phone is made up of plastic and is well textured with brushed metal. It has got TFT resistive touchscreen display that measures 3.0 inches and is capable of displaying 256k colors at a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels.

Below the resistive display, you can find resistive buttons for Menu and Back and below these buttons, you can find the physical buttons for Send, Home and End. On the lower right side, you can find the Android search button along with the camera shutter. The volume rocker is located on the left of the phone. At the rear, you can find 3MP autofocus camera minus flash.

The sad thing about LG Optimus phone is that it has got an obsolete version of Android OS – 1.6 Donut. The phone is powered by 600 Mhz processor and has got 156MB RAM. The internal memory of the phone is 139 MB and the external memory can read up to 32 GB of microSD.

Thanks to LG’s own software, you can choose from three to seven home screens. The LG Optimus is a good phone for social networking and it has got apps like Facebook, Twitter and Bebo. Your social network contacts and updates can be integrated with the phonebook. Setting up email accounts is very simple and easy on this phone. The preloaded document viewer allows to view and edit PDF and MS-Office files.

The 3 megapixel camera is capable of taking decent photos outside. However, it fails miserably when the lighting is less. You can record VGA videos at 17fps. You can enjoy videos of various formats such as MP4, DivX and H.264 on this phone. The Android browser on the phone is good but lacks Flash. The phone allows you to get connected to the web through 3G at HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and WLAN. The Google Maps application comes preloaded on the LG Optimus for mapping. The standard 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery gives a standby time of up to 500 hours on 3G and up to 7 hours talk time on 3G.
