ZTE Source (Cricket Wireless) review: Inexpensive, but stumbles on performance


Assuming you're able get Cricket Wireless' LTE coverage in the first place, the ZTE Source delivers LTE speeds at a decent $189.99 price. In fact, that's the carrier's most budget option for an LTE device by quite a wide margin. Its second-cheapest...

The ZTE Source is competitively priced, features the recently updated Muve Music subscription service, and has expandable memory.

Data speeds are sluggish without an LTE connection, and both the handset's photo and call quality are mediocre.

The ZTE Source offers Cricket customers inexpensive LTE, but if you can spare a bit more money, pass it over for better devices.

Very surprised at how great this phone is!


Would I recommend this phone? Definitely! This is my first Android phone and I could not be any more happy with it! It feels comfortable in my hands with its size. I love a bigger phone and this one is perfect for me. Definitely a great purchase! I got...

Battery life is great and I haven't ran out of battery since I got it. Display and picture quality is amazing. User-friendly. Runs smoothly. Sound quality was definitely unexpected.

Some minor issues with responsiveness of fingertips at times, but it might be user error.

ZTE Source is the Best lower priced phone on Cricket.


Don't let the ZTE brand fool you. ZTE really steps it up with the Source. Running on 4.1 Jelly Bean, this phone gives you all those amazing features that Galaxys and iPhones flaunt for a much more reasonable price. The phone is sleek, sharp,...

Screen Size and display is amazing. The 4.5 in face really is stunning. Battery life is superb and lasts for a long time. Picture quality is clear on both the rear and front cameras. Call quality is surprisingly good for a lower end phone.

The low pixel density might annoy some people. Videos aren't has vivid as higher end smartphones, but they're still clear.
