    One V vs. Merc ?

    I don't know about you guys, but I would honestly take the time to think about changing the Merc to the Htc One V, and that's if it hits Cricket. It already has more dev support and comes with ICS on it. Oh and yeah, the specs are lower than what the Merc has but yet I would still think about changing it, I'm not saying I would, but I would really take the time to hmm argue with myself about it.


    So, what are your guys' thoughts on about it?

    I may not get it, were supposed to be getting our ICS demo and our source kernel so we should be getting some good dev support sooner or later

    The general public doesnt look at phone specs...They see something new and expect it to be better so cricket still gets good sales. In my opinion cricket is like a car lot with nothing but Ford Fiestas and Yugos to choose from. I dont get it but thanks to the general unknowing public we get what we get. IMHO

    Merc has a bigger screen, better PPI, a faster (more capable too) processor. I tested the cameras and my merc is better outdoors but in low light the One V wins. We'll have our source code before the One V hits cricket if they stick to schedule so I'll have to pass on it.

    Obviously the Merc has the upper hand, but all that really interests me is the dev support that the One V has. I know we don't have the source code so there's really not much to do, but there's literally no one anymore trying to do anything for the phone. It's practically just Gio and me doing the themed roms, and even that it's practically nothing. Which by the way I'm making a Sense one lol

    That's my point though, the source code will be released before the One V is. With the source code we'll be able to port CM roms and make custom roms too right? Oh and Screenshots?

    do you own this device? have you ever used it? what reason do you have for saying it sucks? other than comparing it with a phone that costs $100 more
