The first no-contract Windows 10 phone to land in the US is Microsoft’s Lumia 650. Cricket Wireless is the only carrier to sell this device in the US and they will bring it to stores starting May 6, three months after its official launch.

Cricket Wireless will offer the Lumia 650 for $129.99, a good deal taking into account that you can buy the Microsoft Lumia 650 Dual Sim from the Microsoft Store for $199.00.

The Microsoft Lumia 650 is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor equipped with 1GB of RAM. The 16GB internal storage capacity can be expanded up to 200GB with the help of a microSD card.

The phone has a 5-inch touchscreen display offering a 720 by 1280-pixel resolution. The primary 8-megapixel camera and the 5-megapixel front shooter allows users to take excellent photos.

Cricket Wireless also appreciates this phone and recommend it to its customers thanks to the following features:

  • Premium Design: a beautiful, thin and light, premium metallic design.

  • Windows 10 Mobile: Windows 10 comes with elegant, built-in apps like Office, Mail & Calendar, Maps and Photos.

    • Use Microsoft OneDrive to back up your information and sync seamlessly across all your Windows 10 devices.
    • Cortana is  your personal digital assistant.
    • Live Tiles come to life on all your start screens for a familiar, consistent experience.
  • Safety & Security: The Lumia 650 also has a built-in Find My Phone feature that when enabled, lets you locate, ring or wipe your phone if it’s ever lost or stolen. And, with Kid’s Corner, make your phone kid-friendly by giving them their own place to play games and use apps – away from your contacts and emails, and without access to your phone, texts or Internet.

  • Cameras: An excellent 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP HD front-facing camera for those great selfies and Skype calls – both featuring the same imaging software on Microsoft’s flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, providing an outstanding imaging experience on an affordable Windows 10 device.

If you choose to wait and buy Lumia 650 from Cricket Wireless, you also get the following advantages:

  • No annual contracts
  • No surprises when you get the phone bill thanks to plan prices that already include monthly taxes and fees
  • Unlimited music with a Deezer subscription
  • Access to Cricket Rewards, the only customer loyalty program in the prepaid world
