Have been using it for 5 days and runs it under Wind. Everything works fine with a little bit issues. Generally speaking it's a great phone.
1. When I go to somewhere that has no coverage and come back to somewhere that has coverage. The phone keeps stay in roaming. I have to reboot it in order to make phone calls.
2. Too many useless apps built in, mainly t-mobile apps. Forcing me to learn how root phones and delete them... Not a very pleasant experience though.
3. The phone doesn't naturally support tethering because tmobile locks it. You have to root it and freeze or uninstall the ''tethering manager'' for tethering.
4. Poor video qualities (HQ) when watching youtube compares to my iphone 4S. When both of them in full brightness, the Hercules' brightness is dimmer and blurrier. However, this issue doesnt appear in my other video apps such as PPS.
5. Laggy front camera. Maybe it has to do with the cpu, when i try to take pictures using the front camera, it's laggy enough to make you don't want to use it anymore...
6. No physical home key. It's kinda annoying when you are cutting fruits and always accidentally touch the sensitive home key then have to restart the game again.
7. Too ''round''. I don't get it why tmobile will make a custom designed phone that relatively uglier than many other new galaxy phones such as galaxy infuse or even the original s2. I personally can stand the plastic case, but not really with the round shape.
8. The music app. I don't know if this is because i came from iOS, but I am really having a hard time getting used to the music app of the phone. I can't change the volume as precise as i want. There is certain ''level'' i have to choose(1,2,3..) I don't really enjoy it because sometimes it's either too loud or too quiet. Another thing is that it will be quite laggy when you try to drag the little circle to a specific part of a song you want to listen.
9. Not many languages are supported. Unlike iphone which has most of the languages installed, this phone only comes with 7 or 8 languages. Korean is the only asian language supported.
10. Lastly, why everything is in a BLACK background color???????? Whether in email, music or settings it's ALL BLACK background! It will be much much nicer if we can change the background color.
Oh one more thing.......
With it's 1.5GHz processor, why is the benchmark score still lower than Galaxy s2. I got around 2500 in average for 4 times testing. Whereas galaxy s2 can get around 3300.

2. Many useless apps, but with the speed this phone has it makes no difference to me.
3. Just noticed that! but rooting is usually done with one click very easy to do.
4. This must be an issue with your phone, as Gsmarena put it: We can describe you the 4.52” Super AMOLED Plus screen of the droid with only one word – gorgeous. We are yet to see a better screen on a mobile device. Despite the fact that there are screens with higher resolution out there, yet none of the them comes even close to the Super AMOLED Plus of the Galaxy S II. It simply wows you every time you turn it on.
5. Again, this must be a problem with your device, i just took 5 pics in succession with 0 lag times!
6. This is an Andoriod issue, not a phone issue.
7. Obviously this is a non issue, as different tastes for different people.
8. I know i am an odd bird here, but do not listen to music save for YouTube so can't comment here either.
9. You can get any language installed, i installed Hebrew.
10. Again preference
2500?! i am starting to think there is definitely something wrong with your phone! i got 3300 4 times!.
