Review: Pantech Discover for AT&T
The Discover is without doubt Pantech's best and most well-rounded effort yet. It scores well across the board. About the biggest misstep the device makes is the cluttery look of the home screen and undeletable AT&T bloatware. These are minor quibbles at best.
The hardware looks good and functions well; the radio, phone, screen and battery all exceeded my expectations; and the Android 4.0 platform serves as a solid base for the good camera and excellent media options. The loud-as-hell speakers are a bonus, in my book. When you consider that the Discover costs only $50 with a contract, you have a no-brainer on your hands.
The Pantech Discover is an excellent smartphone for the money that easily outperforms devices that cost more than twice as much.
