Comfortable, compact, attractive design
A great device at great price
It consists of offering top shelf specs for entry-level money
Pretty sweet design with some new software enhancements at a fantastic price point
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. Overall, it doesn’t outperform the class leading contenders in the space, but rather, the Discover has that nice balance between price point and feature set. Not only does it sport one stylish design that’s surprising amongst other things, but at $50 on-contract, there’s plenty of... Full review
Pantech Discover is as well rounded as it gets
In closing, we’re a little torn on what direction to take with this smartphone. On one hand this is by far one of the absolute best budget handsets on the market, and easily will make almost any user happy. For $49.99 the Pantech Discover delivers HD visuals, dual-core speed, impressive camera capabilities and 4G LTE. On the flip side the screen is a little washed out, touch sensitivity could use a little improvement, and the UI needs some work and uniformity. Then again, this is only $49.99 and made me happy for a week – so we expect most will love it.

It’s not going to break the bank, but it has many of the features found on current high-end phones
A few years ago, the thought of getting a phone like the Pantech Discover at the price it is selling for was unheard of. That said, if you’re looking for a top of the line device, this isn’t it, but it’s doubtful that anyone reading this review would think that was a case.
If you want to keep your spending on a new device low, but don’t want to sacrifice points for style, the Pantech Discover is certainly worth keeping your eye on. There may be other phones aimed at capturing the same portion of the market, but right now it seems that with the Discover, Pante... Full review
Offers a bright HD screen, loud stereo speakers and an easy-to-use interface for a low price
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. In this price range we prefer the $49 HTC One VX for AT&T. It has a smaller 4.5-inch display, but it lasts longer on charge and sports a faster camera. However, if you're new to smartphones or know someone who is, they'll appreciate the Easy Mode interface on this device coupled with its robust... Full review
A budget phone has never looked so premium
An excellent smartphone for the money that easily outperforms devices that cost more
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 con... Full review
Has an excellent ergonomic design, great external speakers, a good camera, and comes at an incredible value
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
