Almost pure Android

On board the Samsung Galaxy Discover you'll find a mostly unmolested stock version of Android 4.0. The phone is saddled with some nonremovable carrier-branded applications, though.

No sharpshooter here

Don't expect fancy shooting modes like HDR or panorama on the Samsung Galaxy Discover. The app is as basic as can be.

Compelling mobile tunes

As a Cricket Muve music phone, the Discover can connect to the carrier's digital music library. Best of all, you can store tracks locally for enjoying without the need for a wireless signal.
