Cricket Wireless announces the latest valuable addition to its device lineup – the second generation Moto E by Motorola, a 4G LTE phone priced at $129.99, and available at Cricket Wireless in stores and online starting March 13.
The new Moto E is the first Cricket device running the latest Android OS, Lollipop, and continues Cricket’s tradition of offering powerful smartphones, with comprehensive data, voice and text plans, at a smart price. Cricket customers once again have something to smile about.
“We said Cricket would continue to roll out more affordable 4G LTE smartphones in 2015, and the new Moto E is one of the best in its price point,” said Andy Smoak, head of devices for Cricket Wireless. “It’s an entry-level 4G LTE smartphone tailored for those looking for a great mobile experience at a price that won’t break the bank. With unlimited calling and texting plans starting at $35 per month, after $5 Auto Pay Credit, on a nationwide 4G LTE network, we are making good on promises to offer our customers a first-class wireless experience, no matter their budget.”
A faster processor and larger battery isn’t all that differentiates the second generation from its predecessor. With its crisp, scratch-resistant 4.5″ qHD display, all-day battery life, incredible 4G LTE speeds, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor for great performance, and the best of Google with the latest Android™ OS 5.0 Lollipop, the Moto E brings great quality and premium experiences at a value price. Altogether it means better mobile Internet access for feature phone upgraders and others who don’t want to spend lots to get a great phone. Other features include:
Liquid- repellent technology to protect against splashes and spills
Dual cameras for photos, selfies and HD video recording
Moto Experiences — Moto Display, Moto Assist and Moto Migrate
