T-Mobile Galaxy S 2 Forums Added

Well, it looks like the SGS2 family is finally complete. Each and every device from Samsung’s new line up finally has a place they can call home on xda-developers. The latest entry into this party is T-Mobile’s version of the SGS2, which went on sale not too long ago. The device, code named Hercules, gets its name from the obvious gigantic 4.5 inch Super AMOLED+ screen, which is one of the largest available for a mobile phone (without going into the Dell Streak 5, that is). Other features include a beefy, 1.5 GHz Snapdragon dual core processor, which clocks higher (stock) than its brethren, the (currently) mandatory 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a very hefty 1850 mAh battery, allowing you to enjoy your device without charging for a bit longer than you are used to. As an added bonus, you get to enjoy Android 2.3.6 from stock, which is almost the latest release of Gingerbread (currently 2.3.7). Being larger does not seem to hurt it in the weight department either, so you end up with a rather slick, light, and very powerful device if you decide to go that route.

If you already have one and would like to share your findings so far, please be sure to stop by the forums to see what’s cooking!

You can visit the Samsung Hercules in its home on xda right here.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
