Cricket Wireless, a prepaid wireless carrier in the US, will be offering its users the LG X power smartphone starting August 26th.

LG is known for its flagship phones like the G5 and LG V10, but it also makes a wide variety of budget and mid-range priced devices as well. The LG X power caters to users who don’t want to spend $700+ on the latest releases, but instead caters to budget conscious consumers. What makes the LG X power unique is its starting price at $149.99, as well as its massive 4100mAh battery that can last up to two full days on a single charge. If you pick up the LG X power in the first two weeks after its launch you can grab it for just $99.99. After that is will go back to its price of $149.99.

Other specs:

  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
  • 5.3″ IPS LCD, 1280×720 pixels
  • Mediatek MT6735 Quad-core 1.3GHz
  • 16GB internal storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera
  • 4100mAh battery
  • Colors – Indigo, White, Gold
  • FM radio

For the price, the specs aren’t bad. LG put a priority on battery life as well as high quality cameras. I would expect this device to perform well enough for most users, especially those who aren’t looking for high end CPUs, GPUs and displays.

New users to Cricket can grab the LG X power for just $129.99 if they port their numbers over from their current carriers. Cricket Wireless has a large network as it is owned by AT&T wireless and uses its towers to broadcast cellular coverage. The benefit to prepaid plans as well as budget phones are much lower prices where users can save $1000 a year if they make the switch.

In the image above you can see the data plans without overages from Cricket. The average American only consumes 2GB of data a month, which means they could switch to the 2.5GB plan with unlimited nationwide text and talk, unlimited international texts, as well as unlimited talk and text to Mexico and Canada.
