Hands On with the Samsung Admire 2 and Discover for Cricket
The Galaxy Discover is a very basic Android phone. With only a 3-megapixel camera and no 4G, the selling points here are price and its small size (the screen measures just 3.5 inches.) The only extras are the memory card slot, and some will be delighted to find stock Android 4.0 powering this baby.
The Discover has the style and build quality you'd expect from Samsung. It's plastic, but it feels solid and well put-together. The keys work well. The design is very curvy and comfortable.

The display and small and dim. If display quality is important to you at all, skip this one.
The memory card slot is tucked away on the side, accessible after removing the battery cover.
The basic Android 4.0 interface works as you'd expect. Android 4.0 works well, but some might miss TouchWiz features like lock screen shortcuts, notification shade shortcuts, and the extra camera features of higher-end Samsung phones.
On a phone this basic, there's not much else to say. Look for it this summer on Cricket, or Net10 sells this one, as well (it's GSM instead of CDMA, but otherwise similar.)
