I have a Dell Streak 5. I even have an extra one because of a shipping mix up. I have I think the latest factory rom with super user installed and clockwork recovery. Is this it for the Dell Streak 5? Anything else on the horizon? Or is it just an old phone waiting to die. Should I be exicited about the the new phones with 4G LTE or just be content with my 3G Unlimited and Dell Streak 5 until both break?

Keeper for at least another year
I got my unlocked, unbranded Streak 5 last April direct from Dell and am loving it on my still unlimited 3G on AT&T. It is my primary business do-everything phablet. If I had a second one, I would start playing with ROMs.

I'll be happy here until the price points on LTE comes down to acceptable range and wider coverage - maybe this time next year. I would love an LTE/GSM unlocked and unbranded with a similar form factor.

My 1.45 cents (after taxes).

I've contacted dell and they say streak 5 is no more. That's why there's a sale here last month.

I contacted Dell and they say it's only dead if you believe it is.

i just got one.. so its not dead for me....
gingerbread 2.3.3 (407) installed and tweaked and running pretty good so far.
i dont expect it to be my go to device but it rocks as a your a dirty girl/not getting my real number phone.. and is fantastic as a GPS and PDA for my truck.

just need to do the research and find what is the most stable ROM, yet updated reasonably.
