First Look: Cricket's Galaxy S4 gooves to the music

1:17 /

What's different about Cricket's Galaxy S4? It comes pre-loaded with Cricket's unlimited music service.

I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET coming to you from CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas. You're looking at the Cricket version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. It's not a whole bunch of carriers but Cricket announced here at the show that it's coming to them on June 7 for $600. That is a no-contract price. You can pay in installments with $55 down and then a sum every month for a while. This phone has a 5-inch HD display. It's got a 13 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, has a ton of apps inside and a very fast quad-core processor. This essentially makes it Cricket's most advanced phone right now-- really big one for the carrier. The only major difference, of course, is that it comes preinstalled with Muve Music, which is Cricket's offering comes with every Android phone and is built-in to the rate plan that gives you unlimited music downloads and playback. The Galaxy S4, like with other carriers is 4G LTE enabled for Cricket. Although, Cricket has a very small LTE footprint, however, it is growing little by little. You're not using it on LTE, you will be using it on 3G. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. This is Cricket's version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. You can read all about the phone at cnet.com.
