Get into Muve Music with the ZTE Source Video Transcript
Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La here from CNET. And today, we're gonna take a quick look at the ZTE Source from Cricket Wireless. The Source is a 4.5-inch handset that runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It's 4G LTE-enabled, and powering the device is a 1.2 gigaHertz Dual Core processor, and a 2.07 ampere-hour battery. On the back, you'll find a 5-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p video. And on the front, you'll find a 1-megapixel camera. Now, as a Cricket device, you can bet that this Source will have Muve Music 4.0, the carrier's music-streaming service, which has access to thousands of U.S. albums and songs. Again, I am Lynn, and this has been Cricket's ZTE Source.
The prepaid Source from Cricket Wireless has a 4.5-inch screen, Muve Music, and 4G LTE.
Despite its name, don't feel obligated to get committed with the ZTE Engage. That's because this device from Cricket Wireless comes contract-free. It also sports an 8-megapixel camera, a 4.3-inch screen, and Muve Music.
The ZTE Groove is an entry-level handset with a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and Muve Music, which is Cricket's streaming music subscription service. Unfortunately, it runs on the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
Similar to Cricket Wireless' ZTE Score but without the Muve Music, the Metro PCS version boasts the same 3.5-inch touchscreen and 3.2 megapixel camera.
The ZTE Score is an entry-level smartphone sold exclusively at Best Buy. It comes equipped with Cricket Wireless' Muve Music service.
At long last, Cricket's first Android phone with Muve Music: Samsung Vitality
An Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone with Cricket's signature Muve Music service on it? That and the affordable no-contract price are getting buyers interested.
Available for $59.99 on April 21 from Cricket Wireless, the Kyocera Kona is a simple feature phone that has a 2-megapixel camera, a 2.4-inch screen, and dual displays.
Muve Music and a good camera make this midrange LTE Android a keeper, though the phone does have some faults.
The Engage LT on Cricket Wireless has a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 4-inch screen, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
ZTE Source (Cricket Wireless) Review
The good: The ZTE Source is competitively priced, features the recently updated Muve Music subscription service, and has expandable memory.
The bad: Data speeds are sluggish without an LTE connection, and both the handset's photo and call quality are mediocre.
The bottom line: The ZTE Source offers Cricket customers inexpensive LTE, but if you can spare a bit more money, pass it over for better devices.
