I swapped a SE X10 for a Dell Streak today. (Well actually the SE X10 was shipped back to Amazon on Sunday and I got the Dell this afternoon at Best Buy, so that left me a few days with my old Blackberry Curve in between <img src=http://androidappspoint.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif border=0 alt= title=Big Grin class=inlineimg />
I havent had much time yet, but in general the huge differences are size, even though it is only 1" diagonal difference in screen, it is a huge inch <img src=http://androidappspoint.com/images/smilies/eek.gif border=0 alt= title=EEK! class=inlineimg /> It also seems to weigh allot more, which you have to expect since it is much bigger.
Beyond the obvious, I like the Dell UI better than the Sony UI. The Sony had 3 pages and the Dell has 4, but that isnt a big deal for me. It doesnt have the initial swipe to unlock and when I make a call it doesnt instantly go back into lock mode which irratated me about the X10.
It only took me about 30 minutes to get the basics set up, sync gmail and install AppBrain and get everything loaded. The battery seemed to charge much faster and hold a charge better. Both are running 1.6, Dell suppose to update to 2.2 in 2 weeks.
WunderRadio played instantly after installing it where as on the SE I had issues for a few weeks.
I dont like the Proprietary connector and placement of 3.5mm plug, I havent taken any pictures or used any other Apps to compare them.
So far so good.
I also like the keyboard better including the num pad, which doesnt require you to constantly be flipping between 2 different keyboards. The keyboard also seems to be allot more accurate. Maybe that is partly because I had the X10 to practice for 29 days, but the Dell seems to give me what I want and not the next key over.
I dont like that the home screens are all locked in Landscape mode and my Beautiful Widgets doesnt seem to work well, not a size issue, in fact it seems smaller, but it just doesnt look right (at least the beach scene skin is off).

When you go to froyo you lose that keyboard (10 key).
I have heard that and I didnt think it would be a big deal, just hope I get 2.2 soon before I get use to it <img src=http://androidappspoint.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif border=0 alt= title=Big Grin class=inlineimg /> Doesnt 2.2 also bring Swype?
