The prepaid Source from Cricket Wireless has a 4.5-inch screen, Muve Music, and 4G LTE.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET, and right now, we're gonna take a look at the ZTE Source from Cricket Wireless. This 4G LTE device was a 4.5 inch screen with 480x854 pixel resolution, and 218 ppi. It features a microSD card slot and expandable up to 32 gigs, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and the carrier's music subscription service, Muve Music. Muve allows users to listen, as well as download offline to your phone, thousands of songs and albums. You can search for mixes, discover new music, and look up unknown songs you wanna know more about. The handset is powered by a 1.2 gigahertz Dual Core Snapdragon Processor, and a 2.07 ampihour battery, which shoot you about 15 hours of reported talk time. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera with flash that can record 720p video and on the front is a 1 megapixel camera. If you're interested, the phone has an initial price tag of about $220 without contract. Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out Cricket Wireless' ZTE Source.
