    Dell Streak 7

    I just purchased the DS7 with android 3.2 (not caring for the ICS which is why I returned my Nextbook 7s) it is the wifi only version as I have no use ATM for a 3G/4G model. My question is has anyone here had/use this tablet and if so how was/is it? Pros/Cons.
    It won't arrive here until Thursday according to UPS tracking but I am dieing to find out. All reviews I have read are pretty much 50/50 but would rather hear from the horses mouth (hope that is a good way to put it).

    Thanks for any info.

    Well I have had this tablet for almost a month now...I am liking other than the battery life is terrible! About 2 hours max before the adjustments and I have to charge it.
    I started running Juice Defender as that seems to be helping a few of my friends that have also purchased this, they purchased from either icemonkey for the 139.99 special they had a few weeks back.
    Other than having to run it in airplane mode to help conserve a bit of battery (thankfully the WiFi still works in airplane mode) I have been able to get almost 4 hours out of it now, not too fun when you have a heavy ebook reader using it though anyone else know of a better fix?

    Doesn't seem like there are too many Dell users on here


      Have you tried dimming the screen down a little? The screen can burn a lot of power.
      I find in the house it does not need to be full brightness to be comfortable.

      Thanks for the tips on juice defender.

        Your welcome, and yes I have it down to about 5-10% as we keep the house pretty dark due to how hot it's been here on the East Coast.
