One of the better U.S. prepaid carriers is the AT&T-owned Cricket Wireless, which offers aggressive pricing and discounts while utilizing AT&T’s network coverage. While you can you bring any compatible GSM phone to Cricket, the carrier also has a number of devices available for sale directly. Now the prepaid carrier is adding two new options, the LG G Stylo and the HTC Desire 626s.
First up is the G Stylo, a large screen smartphone with a 5.7-inch 720p display and a Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB RAM. Other specs include an 8MP main cam, 5MP front cam, 16GB storage with microSD, a removable 3000 mAh battery, and an Android 5.1 Lollipop. The specs here aren’t particularly high-end but should still provide a fairly solid Android experience. It’s also worth mentioning that the Stylo includes a stylus, though its just an ordinary pen and lacks the advanced capabilities of something like the S Pen.
Next on the list we have the Desire 626s. a Snapdragon 210 powered handset with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, microSD, a 2000mAh battery, an 8MP rear cam, 2MP front cam, and Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The LG G Stylo and Desire 626s are available starting today, priced outright at $199.99 and $149.99 respectively. While both aren’t bad devices, it is important to note that there are tons of arguably better alternatives out there, including the new Moto G, that will work just fine on Cricket’s network at a similar price tag.
