Cricket Wireless' ZTE Source
Today, Cricket Wireless announced the 4.5-inch ZTE Source. Sporting 4G LTE, Android 4.1, and a 5-megapixel camera, the phone will be available on Sunday, October 20, for $219.99 in retail stores and online.
Powering the smartphone is a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. Underneath the battery door, you'll find a microSD card slot (which accepts cards of up to 32GB), and the removable 2,070mAh battery.
The device runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and features ZTE's user interface called "MiFavor." Although I prefer a more pure, minimalistic version of Android (which has been featured in previous ZTE handsets), the UI is intuitive and features clean icons that are easy on the eyes.
