Still tallying in at a manageable 0.49” thickness, we’re happy with the overall size of the tablet, which is quite comfortable to hold with even one hand, but there is a surprising amount of weight with this one.

Reviews Word on the street for the Micromax Canvas Tab P650


5.0
Other basic features such as 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth audio and data connections are here, though we wouldn't mind having an 802.11 n setting.

By now, Honeycomb is indeed the preferred choice for new tablets, but regardless, the overall experience with the Dell Streak 7 is still pretty satisfactory.

Overall

5.9 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Because tablets measure their screen size on the diagonal, you may be surprised to realize that the Streak's 7-inch screen is about half the size of Apple's 9.7-inch iPad display.

We've also found that without extensive design help, many apps made for the smaller screens of Android smartphones can seem out of place or oversized on tablet-size screens.

Furthermore, its screen is definitely a magnet for smudges and finger prints, but its plastic casing combined with its criss-cross pattern manages to handle well in keeping everything else looking clean.

Battery

After fully charging it up again, we decided to do some light work with the tablet, but still, it was only able to give us a little over 10 hours of juice.

At the time of this review, Dell hasn't published an official battery life rating, but we think it's fair to say that if the company could brag about it, it would.

Another issue I have with it is the apparent limited battery life and again I want a tablet where I do not have to think about battery life for at least a full, busy day of usage.

Apps

Instead, they seemingly rely on the usual Gmail app for smartphones, and when you compare it to an older device like Samsung Galaxy Tab, it makes you wonder why they didn’t bother to utilize a similar two panel layout to better organize emails.

It's not the elegant plug-and-play of the iPad and iTunes, but it gets you close.

Call it laziness or something, but it’s shocking to see that Dell didn’t bother to optimize the Gmail experience whatsoever – especially considering that it’s a tablet we’re talking about.

Operating System

Unfortunately, app performance is no better on the Streak 7 than it was on the Samsung Galaxy Tab or any other Android 2.2 tablet we've seen.
by c|net (Jan, 2011)
If you absolutely must pick up a 7-inch Android tablet immediately, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is better at this very moment.
by Android Police (Feb, 2011)
Dell didn’t do anything extraordinary with the Android 2.2 Froyo experience on this one, but it utilized its Stage user interface that we view as favorable thanks to its useful set of homescreen sized widgets.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2011)

Operating system

That said, Honeycomb won't do anything to fix the Streak 7's mediocre screen, which is totally inferior to the Tab, and we hate the idea of purchasing anything predicated on the hopes or promises of a software update, which is only slightly less risky than purchasing a lottery ticket.
by Android Police (Feb, 2011)
Despite its speedy processor and competitive pricing, the Streak 7 is one Android tablet we simply can't recommend.
by Android Police (Feb, 2011)
We still haven't seen any tablet that can stand up to the iPad in this regard, on which Web pages seemingly glide across the screen on their own imaginary momentum-but the Streak 7 is no step forward for Android tablets.
