Pros and cons of Amzer silicone case for Dell Streak

Streak-amzer-silrev (1)

Amzer's silicone case for the Dell Streak was one of the first third-party accessories available for the device. It doesn't seem to be a very popular choice among Streak users, but if you're interested in it, then you should know that it comes in 10 different colors and sells for $14.95 apiece.

I was going to write a full review but since I know a lot of people skim reviews and/or just skip to the conclusion for various reasons, I decided against it. Instead, what I did was take some photos and make a list of pros and cons, which would've been the meat of the review anyway.

Pros

  • Thick, high quality silicone
  • Smooth back feels nice in hand
  • Textured sides provide grip
  • Easy to "install" and remove case
  • Access to all ports
  • Stamped icons on power and camera buttons
  • Made with organic anti-dust technology, a "special spray layer coated on the silicone skin to avoid dust sticking on the surface"
  • Extra cushion on the corners
  • Different color choices
  • Reasonable price

Cons

  • Design won't appeal to everyone
  • Doubles the thickness of the Streak
  • Lint wipes off easily from smooth areas but can get stuck in textured areas
  • Dell logo on back is covered (could be considered a pro, depending on who you are)
  • Strong rubber odor; this will probably fade over time but it's quite strong when you first take it out of the package

Thanks to Amzer for sending the case to Streak Smart. The silicone case for the Dell Streak can be purchased now for $14.95 from Amzer or Amazon.
