    Mercury Ice vs Mercury

    Ok, I just wanted to know if anyone has had any hands on time with the Mercury Ice. The people on YouTube don't know wtf they're talking about and the people at radio shack can't be trusted.. one of my main questions is, did Huawei fix the Purple Splotch problem? If you notice in the original Merc, when you try and take a picture or record a video, there would always be a splotch in the middle of the screen where colors would be darker or whites would turn purplish. Another one is did they fix the video sound quality problem? One thing all merc users hated about the original one, was how deplorable the video sound recording quality was.

    Ok..I understand that. But that's not what I'm asking. The mercury ice was released AFTER the mercury. I'm not saying its the mercury 2...

    Not necessarily. The first batch of Mercs released to cricket are the ones with hardware issues. The second batch was good (better). My Mercs are from the third batch, which had more hardware improvements, like different component suppliers....now they have a forth batch - ICE - so, there are, more-than-likely, even more improvements, however subtle those improvements might be. Not saying the ICE is way better, just saying it "might" be even more reliable than my "third batch." Think about different generations of cars.....each new generation is supposed to be an improvement over the last generation, including body style. Just a thought.

    Me either, on either rom's. I'm back to stock, rooted. Just waiting for PlayfulGod to come up with something. Seems the Merc has some issues giving up the sweet stuff. Oh well, it's just time right? Meanwhile the good folks at cricket don't offer the Merc anymore (in bed with radiocrack) so they have the htc one. Funny, the specs are near identical, only the one has ICS. Same processor speed and memory, etc. funny stuff right there.

    There's no color distortion with the camera? The sound recording is good?

    Sound is a software thing. But my mecrc didn't have any problems at all.

    True. And agreed. One caveat....he could have am issue with a sub-par speaker. Had those in my car. It is a possibility.
