Review: Samsung Galaxy Admire 2 for Cricket
The Samsung Galaxy Admire 2 is a fine little phone. The hardware is the thinnest or lightest, nor of the highest quality, but the Admire 2 offers a lot for the money. It is well put together and has a classy look with plenty of appeal. I found the screen to be pleasantly surprising, and voice quality over Cricket's network was quite good. Battery life was also impressive.
The Admire 2 has all the same communications tools available to other modern smartphones and plenty of media options, too. Thanks to the capable processor under the hood, the Admire 2 never ran into any performance problems. As far as I am concerned, mobile data speeds are the Admire 2's biggest drawback. It's just not that quick without 4G LTE, which is currently only available in a handful of markets.
That said, the Admire 2 is worth a look if you're not interested in spending a fortune on a good phone.
