Created date: 02/24/2018, 23:37:13, Updated date: 04/04/2020, 19:22:10

What are the strengths of the Dell Streak Pro GS01? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the Dell Streak Pro GS01 is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Dell Streak Pro GS01

The camera function of Dell Streak Pro GS01

The main camera of the Dell Streak Pro GS01 has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Dell Streak Pro GS01 comes equipped with a 1.3 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Dell Streak Pro GS01

The battery of the Dell Streak Pro GS01 has a capacity of 1520mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Dell Streak Pro GS01 is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Dell Streak Pro GS01's size

The Dell Streak Pro GS01 is 2.5inches (64.5mm) wide, 5.0inches (125.9mm) tall, and 0.47inches (11.9mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Dell Streak Pro GS01, it weighs about 5.1oz (145g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Dell Streak Pro GS01 make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Dell Streak Pro GS01's screen

The Dell Streak Pro GS01 has a 4.3 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the Dell Streak Pro GS01's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Dell Streak Pro GS01

The processing performance of the Dell Streak Pro GS01 is quite low at 1.5GHz×2(Dual core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Dell Streak Pro GS01 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Dell Streak Pro GS01's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Dell Streak Pro GS01's storage capacity

The Dell Streak Pro GS01 has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Dell Streak Pro GS01 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Dell Streak Pro GS01

The Dell Streak Pro GS01's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Dell Streak Pro GS01

The merits of Dell Streak Pro GS01

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • It feels comparably light.

The demerits of Dell Streak Pro GS01

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
