You Can Now Get the Moto E5 Cruise from Cricket

cricket-wireless-moto-e5-cruise
Last month, Motorola unveiled its latest Moto E5 and G6 series smartphones to the public. Along with the specs, Motorola announced the pricing and availability of these two phones.

Based on the announcement, the Moto E5 Cruise will be launching on Cricket Wireless on May 25th. Just a few days after this scheduled date, Cricket Wireless has announced that this new smartphone is already available at select authorized retail stores and online.

The Moto E5 Cruise is just like the Moto E5 Play. The only difference is that it has been rebranded specifically for Cricket Wireless as the E5 Cruise. Another big difference is that the E5 Cruise does not have a fingerprint sensor while the E5 Play has one.

If you do decide to get the Moto E5 Cruise, you'll be getting a device with a 5.2-inch LCD display panel with a 1280x720 resolution. From within, it is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 425 or 427 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. There is a microSD card slot for up to 128GB memory expansion.

To take photos, the Moto E5 Cruise comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor. The phone also comes with a removable 2800mAh battery, a headphone jack, and Android 8.0 Oreo upon unboxing. A good thing about this device is that it comes with a water repellant coating that serves as protection against spills and splashes.

You can get the Moto E5 Cruise from select Cricket Wireless authorized retailers and their website with a price of $99.99 for both new and existing customers. You can then pair it with one of the plans offered by Cricket, which start at $30 per month.

Cricket is running a referral program where you can earn an account credit of $25 for every successful referral (or up to $250 each calendar year). You can use these credits to pay for a Cricket Wireless service or feature added to your account.

  1. Better to wait for the Supra, which will still be worse than a $200 g6 with airtime at Best Buy.

    1. Yes I am unimpressed by this Cricket Moto E5 Cruise specs. I wonder when the Supra will show up and what the price will be.

  2. Ehhh, still waiting for Cricket to release the E5 Plus, with some of that 6" screen goodness, 32 GB storage, and 5000 mAh battery. Hopefully it's soon.

    This E5 Play/Cruise -- while better than the Alcatel 1X nonsense at the same price -- is not particularly overwhelming.

    (And the lack of USB-C and the removed fingerprint reader doesn't help.)

  3. Underwhelming specs for the price ., However, a few good features- HD Voice/LTE, WIFI Calling, removable battery

  4. Too pricey, especially for Cricket's slow/throttled speeds. Cricket simply isn't a good value if you care about having a reliable network.

    1. Cricket still isn't a bad deal. It provides a slow throttled speed which is still fast enough to play any video... And still far faster than the zero speed the T-Mobile provides in a very large area of the US where people live and work and play and travel that actually is covered by Credit.

      And of course faster than the zero speed in a much much larger area of the country lacking any sort of Sprint coverage.

      Data points with zero speed seriously drag down any sort of estimation of the average speed of a carrier, and any sort of estimation at comparison that does not take this factor into account is very misleading. If you look at 10 randomly chosen data points in the US, and only three of them have T-Mobile and eight of them have Cricket (a very likely at real situation considering the relative coverage of the two Networks), the real average speed for Cricket will probably end up being higher than the speed for T-Mobile.

    2. Anon 11:22 wants to pick "10 randomly chosen data points in the US" -- in other words, without actually looking to see whether people actually live there, or just cactus and cows.

      He's probably the same guy from a few days ago complaining that people can't stream video on T-Mobile on the way to a funeral in upper Montana once every five years 🙄

    3. "He's probably the same guy from a few days ago complaining that people can't stream video on T-Mobile on the way to a funeral in upper Montana once every five years"

      Let's see: T-Mobile coverage at the end of 2017:

      Pretty good!

      T-Mobile coverage in 2015:

      click here

      Nothing!

      A lot of expansion. It's clear that T-Mobile saw profit in the idea of the 10,000,000+ million people in Montana being able to stream video even if you didn't.

      Tell me, Mr Armchair CEO, how many tens of millions do you make each year?

  5. I have the Boost variant. It is great. Fast, smooth, beautiful display..no problems at all. Sure, it doesn't have the new aspect ratio, but I'm guessing that not everyone likes it. For $59 at Walmart, you truly can't go wrong.

    1. that is until boost lte network starts acting up as usual and then your forced to keep the phone on 3g only so it actually works reliably and only wind up getting 600k speeds... happens to everyone around me that has boost in my area

    2. "that is until boost lte network starts acting up as usual and..."

      Boost would have to show up to act up. It's on the very distant fourth place that work with no presence in most of the US.

    3. @anonymous 10:45 am. Because it happens in your area doesn't mean it will happen everywhere. I'm very bappy with my Boost service.

    4. I only get a decent signal with on Sprint and Verizon at my home and office.

    5. "@anonymous 10:45 am. Because it happens in your area doesn't mean it will happen everywhere. I'm very happy with my Boost service."

      The poor or non-performance of Boost won't l happen everywhere, but it will happen in the vast majority of places in the contiguous 48 states.

      When I used the Boost network, I got islands of 3g in a vast sea of nothing, and the performance was similarly bad during cross-country road trips through many states on major highways.

      Sure some will be happy with Boost, but no more than 10% or so will ever be due to its rather poor network

  6. Right on cue, the Boost dealers try to trick people into thinking Sprint's as good as or better than AT&T, and that an outdated form factor is worth investing in.

    Problem is, Boost phones were only ever good for RingPlus right up until the Ringpocalypse.

    Fast forward to today and Ringplus is dead, data habits have grown over the past 5 years, and Sprint's network (which lacks reliable 3G fallback) is as terribad as ever due to deliberate under-investment in preparation for a buyout.

    The reality is that Boost phones no longer have any value whatsoever.

    1. Won't Boost phones still be good for playing MP3 files, even though they won't get a signal and most places?

      Let's be realistic here after all.

  7. By now you probably can stream video on T-Mobile in Montana, because of course T-Mobile management realized that it was imperative to their success to cover the many millions of people who need to use their cell phones in Montana and other regions.

    The carriers that cover America are the ones that get American customers. AT&T and Verizon and T-Mobile all realize this. Even if the armchair CEO Fanboys don't.

    "whether people actually live there, or just cactus and cows."

    Are you that dense? People not to be able to use their cell phones where they go, not just in their houses. And the more than 10 million needing cell phone coverage in Montana specifically are just going to funerals.

    Git along little dogie. Keep singing your sad cowboy song that it adequate coverage is better than good coverage. Rope and ride that Coverage Bull.

  8. Except that Montana only has one million people not ten !!

    1. Montana actually has more than 10 million annual visitors. This is 10 million visitors each year, not once every 7 years for supposed funeral.

      If these visitors to Montana are typical Americans, they will want their cell phones to work inside the state. And T-Mobile is interested in profits and expansion, so of course they figure that they aren't going to leave these millions of potential customers to Verizon or AT&T.

    2. 46 of 56 counties in Montana currently qualify as “frontier counties” with an average population of 6 or fewer people per square mile. It makes no financial sense to blanket ALL this territory with native T-Mobile coverage, so a significant amount of the coverage is roaming (zoom in to see it). The 9 national parks (which draw millions of visitors), cities, highways and many other areas are covered now.

  9. "46 of 56 counties in Montana currently qualify as “frontier counties” with an average population of 6 or fewer people per square mile."

    Which answer thing totally irrelevant since we are talking about places where people go, not just places where people live.

    Mobile means mobile, after all.

  10. Any idea when when the Moto E5 Supra will be available ?
