Pre-paid carrier Cricket announced today that it will sell two new Samsung Galaxy Amp devices. The Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime will retail for $149.99. This unit comes with a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen, and a 5MP camera that opens quickly and uses gestures to snap selfies. Ultra Power Mode will provide up to 24-hours of battery life with only a 10% charge. Other features include a mode that allows you to use the phone with one hand, and Easy Mode. The latter helps the smartphone newbies and elderly users by employing larger fonts and a simple UI that is easy to use. The Galaxy Amp will be available from Cricket's website and its 3800 stores.

Available on April 15th for $99.99 from Cricket is the Samsung Galaxy Amp 2. This device offers a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with an outdoor mode that brightens the phone in sunlight for 15-minutes. The handset features a Quick Launch camera and Ultra Power Savings Mode. Both the Galaxy Amp Prime and Galaxy Amp 2 have Android 6.0 inside.

In April 2014, AT&T closed on its purchase of Leap Wireless which included the Cricket franchise. Cricket subscribers can get unlimited talk, text and data starting at $40 a month. The low tier gives users 2.5GB of high speed data, while $50 monthly provides users with 5GB of high speed data. The top tier costs $60 a month and includes 10GB of high speed data. Using Auto Pay will allow you to cut $5 from the price of each tier, and the $50 and $60 plans include unlimited international texting and unlimited talk and text to and from Canada, Mexico and the U.S.

Coming from AT&T, would Cricket or t-mobile be better? T-mobile has the Music Unlimited and Binge On, but Cricket has better coverage. Which is the way to go?

If you are a heavy user and Tmobile works perfectly in your area then go with Tmobile. If Tmobile is spotty then Cricket by far.
