Huawei Mercury Ice Review

Phone Arena
14 September 2012
  • Conclusion: In the end the Huawei Mercury Ice is a rather unspectacular phone; its performance is sufficient but the operating system outdated and call quality suspect. At just $150 with no contract the price is right, but in the growingly competitive pre-paid space there are better phones with better networks available on better plans.
  • Pros: Camera can take good pictures in the proper conditions, At $150 with no contract, the price is right
  • Cons: Touchscreen is unresponsive at times, Still running Android 2.3, The plans don’t offer a compelling reason to sign up with Radio Shack

Huawei Mercury (Cricket Wireless)

CNET
26 July 2012
  • Summary: With its dual cameras, strong processor, and attention to camera detail, the Huawei Mercury tops Cricket's charts for a non-Muve Music smartphone, but insatiable Web surfers may still want to shop around.
  • Cons: Battery life doesn't live up to expectations on the Mercury, you have to remove the battery each time you access the microSD card slot, and data speeds are pokey. The glossy plastic material is a smudge magnet.

An Android for the Prepaid Set

Wired
22 May 2012
  • Excerpt: If you already have an iPhone, a Galaxy Nexus or some other head-of-the-class smartphone in your pocket, the Huawei Mercury isn’t the phone for you. But if you’re upgrading from a feature phone, or if you’re loathe to sign a two-year contract and would prefer a pay-as-you-go plan, it’s likely the perfect phone for you.
