Cricket Wireless has multiple smartphones on sale, 2015 Moto E available at $79.99
AT&T subsidiary Cricket Wireless has debuted a summer sale during which a multitude of smartphones are available at promotional prices. To take advantage of the deal, customers will have to activate a smartphone plan and pay for the first month of service upfront. 

If any of these deals catches your eye, make sure to act until July 9, as that's when this summer deal ends. The promotion is only available through Cricket Wireless retail stores.

To start off with the cheapest phones that are part of  Cricket's summer sale, the Nokia Lumia 635 is available at $0.99, which is the exact same price you have to pay for the ZTE Prelude II. At this price, the Lumia 635 is probably the better pick if you're looking for an ultra-cheap but capable smartphone and don't mind using Windows Phone as a platform.

To us, one of the best choices is the second-generation Motorola Moto E (LTE), available at $79.99 during the sale. Carrying specs such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset paired with 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 540 by 960 pixels, a 5MP primary camera, a VGA secondary sensor, a 2390mAh battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Moto E is definitely not the best-performing Android smartphone around. At $79.99, however, it's a choice worth considering.

If you're looking for higher-resolution cameras, Cricket Wireless is also offering the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime at $129.99. For that money, you get a decent mid-ranger with specs such as a Snapdragon 410 chipset, 1GB of RAM, a 5-inch display with a resolution of 540 by 960 pixels, an 8MP primary sensor, a 5MP secondary shooter on the front, as well as a 2600mAh battery.

Other smartphones currently on sale include the HTC Desire 510 ($29.99), the ZTE Overture 2 (Free after a $50 mail-in rebate), the ZTE Grand X ($99.99), and the ZTE Grand X Max + ($169.99), and the 32GB Apple iPhone 5c ($299.99).

No reason to buy any of these when you can get LG G2 from AT&T for 175 and use it on Cricket out of box.

What are you smoking? Just visited ATT sight and the G2 is far from that cheap with no contract etc.
