Spoiler alert: this Dell Streak 7 knock-off does not, in fact, best the original. Why? We will distill it down to once simple spec, a resistive touchscreen. But if you can bear having to jam your fingers firmly against the glass to perform any and all touch operations, then prepare to be marveled by the 1.2GHz CPU, 3000mAh battery, and Android 2.3 install found on this copy of the Streak 7. Take that, expensive branded alternative! Did we mention that, unlike the real deal, this thing actually makes phone calls? All for under $180 dollars.

Other reasons not to buy: presumably shoddy build quality, probably won’t find it outside of China’s black market electronics markets, no reason to believe the thing actually works as advertised.
