      If comparing it to the mercury, this phone does run faster and Ice scream sandwich does help, but id say the display on the mercury was better, good size phone not too big, if your planning on getting a nice phone without spending too much money this is a good choice.

      Just picked up my Engage yesterday. Seems to Runs fine so far. Biggest issue for me is the screen is horrible in direct sunlight. Have run my brightness at 100. Why did ZTE keep the search button on a new ICS phone?

      Has anybody found a case or screen protector for this phone yet?
