The new ZTE Grand X 3 is now available through Cricket Wireless for $129.99

Starting today, Cricket Wireless now has the full featured ZTE Grand X 3 available for just $129.99. The Grand X 3 was just announced at CES 2016 and it comes loaded with features for customers who demand more for their dollar. Budget phones used to mean serious trade-offs in performance and features, but no longer with devices like the Grand X 3.


The ZTE Grand X 3 prepaid smartphone offers:

  • 5.5″ HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection
  • Quad-core processing power and fast 4G LTE speed
  • 8 MP rear camera with flash and HD video recording, 2 MP front camera for selfies
  • Dolby Audio provides high-quality surround sound for music, movies and games
  • Long lasting 3,080 mAh battery
  • Type-C connector for easy charging
  • Android 5.1 (Lollipop)

The ZTE Grand X 3 comes with USB Type-C which is the fully reversible plug found on the latest Nexus devices. Battery life should also be something this phone is good at with a large 3080mAh battery.

Cricket Wireless offers full prepaid cellular plans and it owned by AT&T. That means Cricket Wireless uses the same network as AT&T and offers more coverage than T-Mobile and Sprint. Plans start at just $35 per month with all taxes and fees built into the cost – there are no hidden fees. The advertised price is exactly what you pay.
