What the $90, Feature-Rich LG Spree Brings to Cricket Wireless

By Todd R. Weiss  |  Posted 2016-03-15

Cricket Wireless, a unit of AT&T, has expanded its prepaid, no-contract smartphone offerings with the $89.9 LG Spree, a feature-packed handset (despite its low cost) with a 4.5-inch display that is now on sale through Cricket stores and its Website. The 4G LTE smartphone also includes WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, as well as Wi-Fi Direct, which enables easy content sharing with other devices. And even though it is inexpensive, the LG Spree still includes a host of LG features that are included in its more expensive handsets, such as LG's Knock On feature, which allows users to double-tap the screen to wake the phone. It also includes Knock Code, which lets users set up a two- to eight-tap pattern on the screen that can be used to unlock the phone without having to enter a security code. Another feature is QuickMemo, which allows users to add comments and drawings to saved images, screen captures, photos and more to share with family and friends in personalized memos. Peruse this eWEEK slide show for more details about the LG Spree phone.
