Hello everybody! It's Lynn La from CNET and today, we're gonna check out the prepaid Virgin Mobile Awe manufactured by ZTE. The Awe has a 4-inch IPS touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution. It runs Android 4.1 jellybean and unfortunately, it's only 3 enabled. Inside, you'll get a 1.2 gigahertz processor and a 1.65 MPR-A battery, which has a reported talktime of up to 11 hours. As for memory, users will receive 32 gigs of expandable memory, 1 gig of RAM, and 4 gigs of ROM. On the back, there's a 5-megapixel camera that's capable of shooting 720p video and in the front is a 1-megapixel camera. Now as a Virgin device, you'll get some preloaded apps like my account which keeps track of your minutes and data plan, and a news app called the feed. If you're interested, the contract-free handset's initial price is about $100 dollars. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out the Virgin Mobile Awe.
