    Merc death?

    Just wondering if anyone still uses their merc? If so, what tweaks are you using?

    Well.....here's my last post from unleashed prepaids.... Funny blast........I would agree with you except, I tested my merc against the nexus s 4g and the merc dominated in every aspect....speed, ability to multi task, graphics and the damned antutu benchmark. Nexus scored 5478, merc scored 8231....powered by pg's own plague kernal, of course....I guess the merc had the upper hand no matter what, rooted, modded and of course stripped. I now have the nexus rooted with cwm, but not yet on cricket network. Plus I don't know what Rom to test with, but, I've come to decide the nexus is nothing more than Google's version of Apple's iPhone. Kinda neat.....in a sad sort of way. Makes me want a P1 or P6 way freaking bad now! I guess I'm just really good at modding Huawei's......hmmmm, is that a bad thing? Maybe, maybe not, but my 4 year old third party phone just beat the tar out of a flagship Samsung/Google phone about half its age :-) :-) :-) pretty cool, if you ask me!

    What I'd really like now is a stripped down Rom for the nexus.....but, like the merc, is it worth it? A globally unlocked Huawei Px seems the way to go......hmmmm.......decisions, decisions.......

    Still my daily driver! Plagued at 1708KHz. Compliments of playful god and SetCPU! This old phone is solid and doesn't flake at all! Cricket should have stood behind this phone instead of standing in front of it, imho!

    My Mercury had a good run, definitely a solid phone (ran it for over 2 years) but ended up selling it on Ebay and replaced it with the Samsung admire 2 back when it was selling @ $50 on crickets website, I ended up making a little money with the switch lol.

    The merc was an amazing phone. Had like 3 of them. In fact it was the first android device I rooted. But oh well we drifted away after corporate made me switch to the HOV because they were not going to be recieve anymore.. Gone but never forgotten!
