Pantech is known as a budget brand in the states, but they have released a few solid devices as well. To start the new year, Pantech is kicking things up a notch by launching the Discover (previously known as the Magnus) on AT&T January 11th.
For $50 on contract, you are getting a lot. The Discover features a 4.8-inch 720p display, 13MP rear camera / 2MP front-facing cam, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 Pro, NFC, Android 4.0 and a 2,100mAh battery. The curvy design is interesting as well.
The Discover will come pre-loaded with the same Easy Experience Mode option as the Flex, as well as AT&T’s DriveMode app, which will send auto-replies to text messages when you’re driving. Sounds like a great budget device to us.
