The price for all of Cricket's phone are very affordable. This is made possible by the fact that they seem to dumb down all of their phones. I have had the HTC EVO 3D from both Cricket and from Sprint. I bought them both brand new as a Cricket phone and as a Sprint phone. The Sprint one was capable of doing much more than the Cricket one did. The difference was so bad that I eded up flashing my Sprint HTC to Cricket and not caring about the Cricket HTC anymore. Performance The actual android software that is loaded onto the Cricet phones seems to be pre programmed to not work as well as it should. Voice Quality With everything Cricket, when you actually have service it is always amazing. However, the issue is not with how great the service is, and more of where is there service? Battery Life Most of the phones are able to hold a charge for a very long time. Durability Their phones are just as durable as every other phone company's phone.
