Here's a look at the best Android phones offered by Cricket Wireless.
No, we're not talking about the wildly popular sport. Cricket Wireless is AT&T's contract-free, pay-as-you-go MVNO. It offers a wide array of coverage that piggy-backs off of the major carrier's network, as well as a number of smartphones. These are the ones that are worth your cash.
Samsung Galaxy S7
You've heard us say it numerous times before Samsung's Galaxy S7 is the best smartphone to launch this year. It has everything you could possibly need, including a virtual reality-capable processor, a big battery pack, expandable memory, a high-quality rear-facing camera that performs impeccably in low light situations, and an extremely stylish, water-resistant metal-and-glass chassis. If you can afford this Samsung smartphone outright, you'll be set for at least the next two years.
Think it's the one for you?
Alcatel Idol 4
Looking for a capable smartphone without the flagship price tag? The Alcatel Idol 4 is a pretty worthy consideration. This 5.2-inch smartphone features a Full HD display, an octa-core processor, dual rear-facing cameras, dual 3.6-watt multi-directional speakers, and a 2610 mAh battery. It also comes bundled with a neat virtual reality headset, which lets you indulge in 3D landscapes and games. Alcatel even includes its own VR Store app with all the compatible apps you need.
Ready to buy?
I see you out there: You like smartphones and you're into the idea of having the Internet readily available in your pocket, but you want nothing to do with the specifications race that's taking place among the flagship competition. That's fine, because that's what smartphones like the Moto E are for.
The Moto E is, simply put, the most reliable cheap phone there is. It's my go-to phone when I'm traveling overseas and it's offered by Cricket Wireless for a measly $30! The Moto E is a bit behind on software, but it has all the basics you need for staying connected, including a 4.5-inch display, a straightforward 5-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE compatibility.

ZTE Grand X Max 2
Looking for a big cheap phone? The ZTE Grand X Max 2 is a low-end device, but it's equipped with a giant 6-inch 1080p display, so you can watch YouTube and Netflix at your leisure. The Grand X Max 2 is also powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a relatively giant 3,400mAh battery. It comes with a dual-camera setup on the back, too, featuring a 13-megapixel main camera and a fixed-focus 2-megapixel camera. And unlike the Moto E, this one comes with Android 6.0 right out of the box.
