The Bottom Line 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. If you're looking for an inexpensive Android phone to fall in love with, AT&T's $50 Pantech Discover is it. The value is high and the drawbacks are few and far between on the Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate.
