Samsung Hercules photo leaks with T-Mobile branding
posted by Alan F. / Aug 07, 2011, 7:50 PM
larger 4.5 inch display on the Hercules. Touchwiz is running over Android and a source for Tmo News says that not only is the phone "fast, fast and fast", the calendar, messaging and email apps are "amazing" and beat what is available on stock Android. Those who love to use their handsets for streaming movies will be happy to know that Netflix is pre-installed and apparently is working great.
So instead of feeling sorry for T-Mobile customers, you might end up envious of them, although to be fair, we haven't really seen what the other carriers' version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will look like completely.

That's just a rumor right now. Hopefully it's not true. It looks like the Sprint version is just like this and does have the exynos, according to a test done on nenamark GPU testing. We shall see.

Well, the good news is that it actually SAYS "GALAYXS 2" Which means that there is a good chance of it being an exynos processor after all. All of the galaxyS2 variants that have other processors have different names like galaxyZ. This gives me a decent amount of hope for exynos anyways.

Well it looks good my only complaint its that its t-mobile. Its too bad t-mobile sucke real bad over here in los Angeles. I want this phone but ima just wait for the att or Verizon version. I hae several phones from t-mobile bb bold, mytouch 4G nd lg g2x till I gave up on t-mobile. I just couldn't take it anymore with the crappy reception inside buildings I dnt know a lot about phones but from what I found online was that t-mobile uses the 1700 mhz band for 3g/4g and 1900 for edge which dnt penetrate buildings that well. No wonder once I switched to att which uses the 850 mhz band I saw an improvement on reception on my infuse inside buildings I now had 3-4 bars in the same buildings I had no service on t-mobile. So yea I'm just gonna wait for the att version of this phone and give my infuse to my boyfriend and get the att s2. I just hope att don't mess it up..

I couldn't agree more Galen. i am in constant 3G when in my own city, but go about 2 miles in ANY direction and i hit the 4G mark and download just as fast as most computers. No dropped calls and excellent service here!

I dont understand why you got thumbed down here ??? Must be some annoying guy like miz or taco. I'll give you a thumbs up (even though i live in sweden and dont know how your network is in the US). By the way, i find it interesting that there isnt any 4G phones in sweden yet. We have 4G network, but no 4G phones yet : S Maybe it is because the 3G network here in sweden is awesome : ) With my operator i can have 10 mbps on the 3G network (i have choosen 3 mbps instead, its cheaper). And everywhere i go here in sweden i have 3G coverage. Actually i have not been to a single place where there has not been 3G connection : D PhoneArena, do you have any news of 4G phones coming to sweden ?

I've had tmo for about 4years now and wherever I go it is never any better or worse than att. The carrier that really has all the coverage they claim is verizon. Att is just as s**tty coverage as tmobile but tmobile has allot faster 4G speeds than them :-P

I knew they'd butcher the thing when it got subsidized on US carriers.

Ill stick with my g2x; eagles blood custom rom have 50% battery after 15 hrs of moderate use and pushing 3500 on quadrant clocked at 1ghz. It be nice to have half inch extra on the screen but i think it may feel a little to large on my pocket.
