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.

    The audio quality issue is software, Huawei decided to use the worst possible audio encoding when recording from the mic (both the stock Sound recorder & Camera apps use AMR_NB encoding, NB is Narrow Band which unfortunately to me indicates Incompetence on Huawei's part).

    The only way I know of around it is to use different apps from the market, I use Hi-Q MP3 Recorder to replace the stock Sound recorder and LgCamera to record videos, After it's installed load up LgCamcorder, hit Menu, scroll down to Audio Encoder and change it to AMR_WB (Wide Band) the mic recording quality is MUCH cleaner this way.

    Mine is from the first batch that came out last December. I've never seen any camera splotches, or any other problems, really, aside from the crappy sound recording that isn't really a defect, just a stupid Codec as stated by Mathesar.

    One of my friends got the One V and he let me mess around with it, and over all, the Merc is much better. The only thing the One V has the upper hand on is that its got a full ICS version. Then also, I tried rooting it and putting another rom in it, I even made a thread in the One V section to see if anyone could help me out, I got the bootloader unlocked, but couldn't root it and couldn't get CWM recovery on it. & so far for the white Merc, well it's just the color difference.

    I've started using TWRP for recovery. It adds a few features over CWM, and allows you to navigate using the touchscreen instead of volume up/down +power.

    I didn't see Huawei on their list, did you compile the recovery yourself?
