Huawei's Honor is a midrange Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone. While this is the unlocked, global version, it'll also be coming to Cricket Wireless as the Huawei Mercury.
Huawei added some useful customizations on top of Android, including this lock screen, which lets you open the phone on the home screen, the camera, the call log, or the texting inbox.
The Honor comes in six colors. I reviewed the white one here, which looks pretty classy to me.
The Honor has two cameras: an 8-megapixel lens on the back (with LED flash and autofocus) and a 2-megapixel camera on the front.
It's fairly slim, even though it has a sizable 1,900mAh battery inside.

TouchPal is the name of the custom virtual keyboard. One of the best innovations is being able to slide your finger up to capitalize a letter, and slide it down to insert a number instead.
The 8-megapixel camera cast a blue hue on the standard studio scene.
The following photos were taken indoors and outdoors using the 8-megapixel camera's automatic settings. Photos have been resized, but are otherwise untouched. These flowers were taken outdoors in the shade.
I shot this Subaru outdoors in direct morning sunlight.
I got in close to shoot this indoor, well-lit miniature.
This indoor photos of our editors' gum collection didn't turn out so well.
Look closely at this indoor self-portrait and you can see large areas of pixelation, and some blue areas in my hair and at my shoulders.
