Dell Streak performs poorly in benchmark tests


Although the Dell Streak is more tablet than phone, it will still be grouped with and pitted against Android superphones when it's released in the US. Assuming that day will come sooner than later, among the Streak's Android "rivals" will be the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X, and Samsung Captivate.

You've already seen side-by-side photos and specs comparisons of those phones here at Streak Smart (click on the respective links if you missed any of it) and while the Streak fared pretty well because of its 5-inch screen, it wasn't so lucky in an Android benchmark battle I just posted on Pocketables. In fact, it came in last in almost every test.

An update to Android 2.2 and the removal of whatever is imposing the 30 fps cap would drastically improve the scores and keep the device in the ring with the competition. As it stands, however, the Streak has definitely lost this round. Benchmarks aren't everything, of course, and they often mean nothing in terms of real-world usage, but they are a standard measurement of performance included in many reviews that consumers read while making purchasing decisions.
