As for the camera, the device can capture photos from its dual-camera configuration on the back with a 13-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. The back camera can also record 1080p HD videos. Up front, the PULSEMIX comes with a 5-megapixel camera. Powering the device is a 2,800 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that can last up to 13 hours of talk time and 450 hours on standby mode. The PULSEMIX runs Android 7 Nougat out of the box.

  1. Not the greatest but certainly a better offering for Cricket than usual. $30 would be a real good deal...

  2. $80 is a good price, but too bad Cricket is the worst prepaid carrier right now. Their service is so unreliable. Data is slower than Sprint. Plus their customer service is completely worthless and non-responsive. MetroPCS is way better and more reliable. Heck, I think Tracfone is a better deal than Cricket.

    1. Oh yes, the customer service on Cricket is bad and I mean magnitudes worse than any other company I have used.

      I have dealt with customer service at Virgin, at Boost, at Tracfone, at Verizon, and others. No one matches Cricket for ineptitude.

      Many people say the Tracfone world of companies has bad customer service, but I dealt with them a lot when I switched my 4 2G Tracfones over to 3G ones. It took some time on the phone, but they did it correctly, so not so bad.

      For some unknown reason on June 14 of this year, and for a week, my Cricket phone said on the screen "Emergency Calls Only", so I could NOT receive calls (callers were sent right to voicemail) and I certainly couldn't make any calls. I went onto the "chat" (at 7:30PM) on their website and chatted with a person who adamantly would NOT help me.

      Inexplicably, on June 21 the phone started working again, so I had gone onto the chat to find out why it hadn't worked and to get a credit for a week of service. The first chat person would NOT help me. She said she had no idea why it didn't work, wouldn't investigate, and wouldn't give me a credit.

      The second chat person was so clueless as to be maddening. He could tell I was getting fed up, so he transferred me to a "supervisor" on the chat, whatever that means.

      The third person (the "supervisor") also was of no help and I spent a long time on the chat with him, to no avail. I finally signed off a little after 10 PM. See how much time that took?

      At one point, the 3rd chat person said "Hold on, I am looking into something", so I called the Cricket 800 number and said, "Look, my phone didn't work for a week. Why is that?" He had me on hold a while and said he thought it was that the "pilot number" in my phone was set wrong and that caused the whole issue. The pilot number? It is apparently the phone number you dial to hear your voicemails. And that made my phone non-functional?

      A second call on the 800 number also got me a credit for the week of missing service.

      I then engaged a 4th chat person and asked, "Why is it the person on the phone figured it out and you can't?" He said that the phone people have access to information that the chat people don't.

      So the lesson is, CRICKET CHAT IS USELESS. Absolutely a waste of time. They can't do proper research. So, if you have a problem, don't chat. You must call, although that's not a guarantee of help. My first chat person was RUDE, deliberately unhelpful, gave no suggestions. The 2nd through 4th were just useless. Furthermore, every one of those chat people wrote in broken English and, often, each gave answers that told me that the person either hadn't read what I typed or didn't know enough English to understand it.

      Remember: Cricket chat people can't speak English, are rude, are useless.

    2. Emailing [email protected] is what to do to resolve problems with Cricket Wireless

    3. Bull. Cricket is owned by and runs on att. Metro pcs is t mobile. Cricket is far superior

    4. "$80 is a good price, but too bad Cricket is the worst prepaid carrier right now. Their service is so unreliable. Data is slower than Sprint."

      This is simply untrue. Sprint gives no coverage, 0 bars, in most of the US. Cricket gives coverage in most of the US, at least a few MBPS, everywhere. What you claim is mathematically and geographically impossible.

      Cricket is even more reliable at this point in time than MetroPCS, due to the simple fact of Cricket providing coverage (and speed) in so much of the country where MetroPCS does not provide anything at all.

      Anecdotally, I have used a Sprint MVNO, Cricket, and regular T-Mobile during the past year. It is Cricket that gives the fastest speeds by far when I go place to place, and is far more reliable in "yeah, I will just get working high speed data without worrying about where I am." IT just works.

      T-Mobile can sometimes get almost as fast as Cricket in some places (though it requires a lot of work: toggling airplane mode, and changing towers). And I sure don't miss the "0 bars most of the time. 3g in a few places" I got on the Sprint network. Sprint made me feel I was going back in time, several years, when such a poor quality network was acceptable.

      If you want something that works reliably, Cricket (and anything AT&T or Verizon based) will generally be more faster and more reliable than anything on the T-Mobile network.... until T-Mobile expands. And definitely far better than anything on crap-bag Sprint.

  3. Impressive features for the price but not-removeable battery is a not so great. Does it a have notification LED ?

    1. You and three other people care about removable batteries on a throw away phone.

    2. "You and three other people care about removable batteries on a throw away phone"

      Sealed-in batteries is flat out terrible design. Far more than 3 people think it sucks to have toss an $800 Galaxy S7 in the trash when the battery dies.

  4. So it's an overpriced Idol 3 that'll give you epileptic seizures.


  5. This phone is the same device as the Alcatel A50 being sold on Amazon Prime. It has VoLTE compatibility on T-Mobile only.

  6. Samsung Galaxy Halo a.k.a. J7 (2017) $180 @ Cricket Wireless

    1. The 64GB G4 Plus has better specs for the same price.

  7. According to phonescoop, it is a rebranded version of the Alcatel A5 LED / A50
