ZTE Overture 2 is one of the cheapest Lollipop smartphones in the US
If you only have $50 to spend, and want to get a new smartphone that runs Android Lollipop out of the box, you should check out the ZTE Overture 2. Released today in the US by Cricket Wireless, the Overture 2 is the successor to the ZTE Overture from early 2013.

The new handset is offered for just $49.99 without contract, though you need to activate it on Cricket and choose one of its monthly plans starting at $40. You can even get a $50 mail-in rebate after paying for two months of service.

Obviously, the ZTE Overture 2 is not the most advanced smartphone around. It sports a 4.5-inch display with just 854 x 480 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (unknown maker). Other features include LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2100 mAh battery. Dolby Digital Plus surround sound is also on board, plus a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera.

Earlier this month, BLU launched the Studio C, another cheap handset ($99.99 unlocked) that runs Android Lollipop. It's good to see that you can actually buy cheap Lollipop handsets in the US, isn't it?
