Excerpt: Pantech isn't known for their high end phones, but that's changing with elegantly designed, well equipped Android smartphones like the Pantech Discover. The phone has a 4.8" display running at 1280 x 720 and a sleek design that doesn't look the least bit cheap though the phone is only $49 on...
Pros: Attractive phone with great specs at a very low price.
Cons: Not running the very latest version of Android and no promise of a future OS version updates.
Conclusion: Are you strapped for cash and still yearn for some kind of sweet smartphone, but don’t want to settle on a typical entry-level device? Well, you’re in luck because the Pantech Discover is going to be the right fit for you – albeit, it’s still without its own set of flaws.
Pros: Pretty sweet design, Fantastic price point, Some new software enhancements
Cons: Display is a bit washed out, Sluggish performance, Extremely underwhelming performance with its camera
Summary: The Pantech Discover really grabs your attention -- and not just because of its low $49 price. It's curvy design, bright HD display and punchy stereo speakers make it a truly unique offering. The only real drawbacks are this handset's below-average battery life and older Ice Cream Sandwich software.
