Cricket now offering $30 ZTE Sonata 2

Cricket Wireless has a new Android smartphone for your consideration, the low-cost ZTE Sonata 2. Available immediately, the phone runs a slightly older version of Android at 4.4 KitKat, but that may likely matter little to the target audience.

Key specifications include a 4-inch WVGA display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and front-facing 2-megapixel shooter. The Sonata 2 houses a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and up to 4GB of storage. Sure, it’s on the lower side of the spectrum but the microSD expansion card slot allows for up to 32GB of additional room.

Other details featured in this smartphone include Dragontrail Glass screen protection against scratches, SRS surround sound, and a 1650mAh battery with Quick Charge 1.0 support.

Cricket offers the Sonata 2 for only $30, which is pretty hard to beat when you consider there’s nary a contract to be found. Backed by the AT&T network, Cricket’s service plans with data start as low as $35 (after Auto-Pay credit).
