First Look: Checking out the ZTE Groove from Cricket

0:59 /

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.

Hello everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET here with the ZTE Groove from Cricket. The Groove is an entry-level 3G handset. It has a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen with a 480x320 pixel resolution. The device includes 1 gig of internal memory and 32 gigs of external memory. On the back, there's a 3.2 megapixel camera and on the front is a VGA camera. It's powered by 1.500 mAh battery and has a reported talk time of about 6 to 7 hours. Other features include Muve Music which is the carrier's online music subscription service that lets you stream thousands of albums and songs. Now unfortunately, it ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread which is as you probably know a severely dated version of Android. If you're interested, the handset goes for about $100 and requires no contract. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been Cricket ZTE Groove.
