[df-subtitle]The AT&T prepaid brand dials up a very affordable Lollipop experience[/df-subtitle]

Cricket Wireless today began offering a new entry-level smartphone, the ZTE Overture 2. Priced at only $50, the handset offers a dirt cheap barrier into Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Specifications for the device are admittedly not going to set the world on fire but it’s hard to argue when you’re getting a no-contract handset at this price.


Details include a 4.5-inch display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. There is a microSD expansion card slot however it is limited to 32GB maximum capacity.

In terms of cameras, the ZTE Overture 2 offers a 5-megapixel rear shooter with a VGA quality front-facing selfie cam. Nothing to get excited over, sure, but it’s silly to ask for more at this price.

For a limited time Cricket customers can actually end up with a free ZTE Overture 2. Purchase the phone before July 9 and you can receive a mail-in rebate good for $50.

  1. I switch from a Motorola MOTO E to the ZTE 2.

    This phone feels really flimsy and cheap.the touchscreen hold smudges. it feels like it’s made from plastic although I think it’s just really send cheap piece of glass. I don’t expect it to last very long I’ll probably end up having to buy another one in the next 3 months or so. The smart of these phones become the cheaper and more fragile they are.even the big name expensive ones.
