ZTE Grand X 4 launches on Cricket at $130 with fingerprint scanner on deck

By Adrian Diaconescu November 16, 2016, 10:36 am

Prepaid wireless service enthusiasts looking to use AT&T’s rather than T-Mobile’s network may have felt left out by the exclusive “UnCarrier” and MetroPCS launch of the super-affordable ZTE ZMax Pro, but now they can get a stab at their very own low-cost ZTE device with a fingerprint sensor.

Well, not just yet, but soon enough, as Ma Bell subsidiary Cricket Wireless promises to begin on and offline sales of the Grand X 4 this Friday, November 18. For a measly $129.99, ZTE USA’s CEO feels you won’t be making too many sacrifices, with “features found on flagship phones” everyone can enjoy, “no matter their budget.”


That’s obviously a bit of an overstatement, since the rear-positioned, “intuitive, ergonomic and convenient” fingerprint reader is really the only high-end feature in tow here. Still, the ZTE Grand X 4 isn’t half bad all in all… for a dirt-cheap mid-ranger, also offering a 5.5-inch HD screen, quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 3,140 mAh battery, 13/5MP cameras, as well as pre-loaded Android 6.0 Marshmallow software.

The “perfect gift this holiday season”? Probably not. A decent one nonetheless if you only have 130 bucks to spend? Definitely.
