The Bottom Line Samsung's Rugby Pro makes a good, affordable choice for people seeking a more rugged smartphone, but it won't satisfy those who need an ultradurable frame. 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.
