Here is a brief look at the great highlights found in this week's article:


"Powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM 8655T processor, the Mercury isn't designed to compete with top of the line, dual-core superphones, but you're not going to find any of those kinds of phones at this prepaid price point. Still, the Mercury benchmarks at the top of its single-core class, and should provide more than enough power for casual usage, Web browsing, and gaming."


"So if you're looking for the latest, greatest contract-free smartphone, the Huawei Mercury is simply out of this world. We're happy to give it our Editors' Choice."


"The Mercury's 8-megapixel camera is great. It snapped photos quickly, in about .3 second in my tests. Photos look sharp, with rich colors and accurate detail. The video camera is able to shoot 720p videos at a smooth 26 frames per both indoors and out. There’s also a VGA front-facing camera for self portraits and video chat."
