Features

Small But Powerful

The perfect combination of size and performance. Thoughtfully designed the STREAK has a pocket-friendly design that allows for simple one-hand navigation. At less than half an inch thin you can feel the solid and well-built construction. This device doesn't skimp on performance though with a quad-core processor and all the speed of Cricket's 4G LTE network.

Small Phone - Large Display

The STREAK offers a great balance of phone and screen size. The bright 4.5" display keeps the phone's profile compact while still providing an immersive viewing experience -- perfect for social media or browsing on the go.

Dual Cameras

With its 5 MP rear and 2 MP front cameras and HD video you have more than one way to take a pic. And, with a double press of the power key when the screen is off, instantly launch the camera, so you are always ready to capture that picture-perfect moment. The STREAK also features Polaroid editing software that brings back the magic of the classic instant camera allowing you to frame, add borders and filters then quickly share to all of your favorite social sites and messaging applications.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent! I had an iPhone 5s and was so scared about switching when my phone broke and I knew I couldn't afford another one. I was impressed with this by the claims of an 8MP camera (no true, whatsoever) - but was pleasantly surprised with its performance and ease of use. Loud speaker for music, compatible with Amazon Prime, good for wifi, texting, and the basics. I've had trouble with file size - I can't send videos whatsoever, and the camera quality is equivalent to that of a potato, but it has good battery life and is an overall reliable phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for teens and adults I bought this phone in October now it's December I honestly don't see why people are downing this phone. I only have to charge this phone twice a day (I'm a heavy phone user) theres some things I don't like so much) 1. No flash or flash light.) 2. You have to have another photo gallery just to sort your pictures by albums (I chose quickpic)) I really love how this has the newest emojis from the 6.0 update. There are many good about this phone than bad I hope you enjoy the phone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FAIR FOR THE PRICE I've owned all the Cricket Alcatel phones and have found that not every phone is going to be perfect. This Alcatel Streak is definitely fair for the price. I've had it for two days now and it's just like the other Alcatel phones but obviously smaller. The only thing I hate about this phone is it seems to have a slight delay when entering my pin to unlock the phone and because I'm naturally a fast typist, the keyboard can't seem to keep up with me, which is in my opinion part of the delay in the keyboard. The other thing that irritated me a bit is the fact that the upgrade fee is $25 which costs more than the phone itself. I've downloaded quite a few apps on my phone without the SD card and so far all is well. This is a good backup phone when you're in between phones like I am. I hope this helps anyone seeking a cheap backup phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for After breaking the screen on my other phone, i got this one as a temporary phone because i really needed one. camera quality is poor and after some time, my volume to watch videos stopped working, my ringer and ntifications sounds warped. Overall I got what I paid for...never again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I have had this phone for about a month and a half now. Switching from a high end phone of the Galaxy S6 Active to this cheapy 20$ phone drove me insane. BUT overall, this phone is actually not too terrible of a phone. I cant use it like an all around "do everything" phone like a could my S6, but it gets the job done. It makes calls and sends texts. It even connects to my car so I can play music. That is about all its good for so dont expect much else. A couple issues though that drive me insane and cause me to switch over to my S6 as soon as i hit a wifi spot though are: 1) The screen is not heat sensitive I guess? Meaning that anything touching the screen will cause it to go haywire. Dust, dog hair, even fingerprint smudges and jeez does the screen smudge easily. Any time I want to send a text, I have to lock the phone, wipe it off, unlock it, type, and sometimes even repeat the process just to send ONE text. Very frustrating. This issue alone makes SWYPE unusable, scrolling Facebook impossible, and games unplayable. 2) The brightness slider bar does nothing. I mean NOTHING. You can slide the slider all the way to bright or all the way to dim and the screen will stay the same. You blind yourself at night, you cant see during the day. 3) The operating system takes up just over half the amount of memory on the phone and there is nothing you can do. I filled up my phone with just 5 or 6 apps. If you buy this phone, either dont download apps or invest in a memory card. 4) The camera kinda sucks, but hey its a cheap phone. Its poor quality and very dark. You also dont really have room on the phone for pictures and videos anyway so i guess it works out. There is also no flash which kinda sucks if you like to use your phone like a flashlight like me. Thats pretty much it. If you can move past these issues and just enjoy the fact that its a cheap smartphone that pretty much gets the job done, then I totally recommend this phone. I personally wont be keeping it much longer, but I do recommend it if you just want a simple smart phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Battery LIfe I've had it for a couple of weeks now. When using the phone you cant literally watch the battery percentage charge drop. I left it turned off and stored for 3-4 days, when I can back the battery was completely dead. This is turned completely off.
