The Bottom Line The Motorola Defy XT doesn't fear dust and water, but lacks the strength to power through smartphone tasks with speed. 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.
