The Discover has a 3.5-inch HVGA display with a 320x480-pixel resolution. It ships with a rather untouched version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (good news for those who don't like Samsung's TouchWiz UI).

Some Cricket applications include its own brand of navigation and Muve Music, the carrier's music subscription service.

Compact and sturdy at 4.4 ounces, the 3.5-inch Galaxy Discover is a small entry-level device that measures 4.59 inches tall, 2.42 inches wide, and 0.45 inch thick.

Though there is no front-facing camera, you'll find a 3-megapixel camera on the back. Unfortunately, there is no flash for taking photos in dim settings. To the right of the lens are two small slits for the speaker.

The smartphone is powered by an 800MHz single-core processor. Users will also get a 1,300mAh battery, which has a reported talk time of 8.5 hours and a stand-by time of 11 days.
