The Bottom Line The Samsung Rugby II improves on its predecessor and delivers a functional, rugged phone with satisfying performance. If you're looking for an inexpensive Android phone to fall in love with, AT&T's $50 Pantech Discover is it. Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
