Cricket Wireless Black Friday 2016: get the decently-specced ZTE Grand X 4 for just $49.99
If you are looking for an affordable phone that doesn't come with the worst-possible hardware specs, Cricket Wireless has an interesting offer for you. For this Black Friday, Cricket is selling the ZTE Grand X 4 at just $49.99 with activation on a smartphone plan.

Cricket started selling the ZTE Grand X 4 last week at the price of $129.99. The prepaid carrier's Black Friday 2016 offer discounts the phone by 61%.

Looking at the hardware specs, the ZTE Grand X 4 provides quite a lot of value at $49.99. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch display running at 720 by 1280 pixels, a Snapdragon 425 chipset with a 1.4GHz quad-core CPU and an Adreno 308 GPU as well as 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Other specs include a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP secondary shooter on the front, a fingerprint scanner, a Type-C USB port, and a 3140mAh battery with Quick Charge 1.0. On the software side, the Grand X 4 runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The ZTE Grand X 4 already provided a lot of bang for your buck at its original price of $129.99. At $49.99 for a brand new unit, smartphones really don't get any better than this.

What do you guys think? Can you think of a better phone that retails below the $100 mark?

This phone does NOT have adoptable storage (apps to sd card). Can use sd card for pictures, music, etc. but no apps. And out of the 16gb internal memory only about 8gb is accessible for storage. The other 8gb is used for pre-stalled apps. That means that you only have 8gb for the apps that you want (and the other stuff that want transfer to the sd card). Definitely not worth the hassle. Also, BEWARE of the $25 restocking fee.
