Pantech Discover retail package
It has been a long time since I tried out a Pantech phone, and I honestly never considered their devices as competitive with current smartphones. After using the Pantech Discover for the last couple weeks, I am ready to admit that I was wrong.
The Pantech Discover has one of the best form factors I have tried in a long time, and it feels great in my hand. I love the curved soft touch back material and was frankly shocked by how solid the construction is. It is available now for just $49.99 with a 2-year contract on AT&T, and is a pretty compelling low cost Android device for people to consider.
I'll take a walk through the device and my experiences in this image gallery. However, since the focal point of this device that was pitched to me by AT&T is the integrated DriveMode service that helps prevent texting and driving, I will start with the software.
