Summary: I purchased this phone when it was new technology (2012). And I'm still using it today. I never buy anything without researching it to-death. I compared the Pantech Discover against the HTCs and Samsungs available when all were brand new. I choose the Pantech because it had the best stereo speakers (at the time 2012). Today: The device does get a little hot (with gel-rubber case), but has not turned itself off due to heat.
Summary: Great phone at a great price!!! You have to connect to AT&T to get the Android update for this phone but a one month connection to AT&T on the prepaid GoPhone plan is inexpensive and to be honest the GoPhone plan is a pretty nice option. This phone is also world compatible and I have used it in a number of countries with local SIM cards. It also has an SD slot so with a 32 Gig card you have a massive 48 Gigb of storage.
Summary: The phone itself is good and meets expectations for a budget phone. Here is a helpful review www.engadget.com/2013/01/19/pantech-discover-review/ . Note that the phones I received from SeriousDeals were NOT UNLOCKED as the item title says. Be sure to know your options for unlocking the phone if that's important to you.
