    Not aware of anything except maybe using the razr I. Other than that, my one x feels similar in size as my DROID razr that was 4.3". The nexus is 4.6 but has on screen buttons so the screen would be about that size

    Hopefully the Pantech Magnus P9090 will come out soon because I am planning to switch from Boost Mobile to ATT. I hope that it will come this year in Dec or early next year.

    I will look into that one. I just don't want to go with anything bigger (overall dimensions) than my GS2.

    Never had a Pantech. Anybody familiar with how good they are at support/upgrades?

    Hello

    I never had Pantech before but I called their tech support and they very friendly so that is a good sign and I asked them if the cell is still under warranty and needs repair do I send the phone back and one of the tech says that you can go to the ATT store and exchange for the same phone 1 time only so you don't have to wait for another phone. If the second time it has a problem then send to Pantech.

    Different manufactures has different warranty polices. For the "Discover" phone they said Jelly Bean is coming for the phone but didn't release the date for it.

    That phone sounds awesome. I'm going to browse their forum. My GS2 is having random reboots daily all of a sudden. Pissin me off!

    Hi Forddna,

    Yes that is a GREAT phone because PCMAG gave them 4 out of 5 stars and CNET gave a 8 rating out of 10. Go to other website to review about the Pantech Discover and you will see for yourself. Yeah don't every buy a Samsung because Samsung is sick. There customer service is HORRIBLE. I have a forum of what I went through with Samsung and you can read my rant here http://androidforums.com/samsung-ga...ung-prevail-headache-repair-problems-ugh.html

    About the RANDOM Boots it is COMMON TROUBLE with Samsung devices because I had the Samsung A640 in 2006 and now currently the Prevail and it still does random reboots even Samsung sent me REFURB unit. Samsung just advertises how great, good their phone is compared with Apple but in reality do they advertise how their customer service/technical support is??? NO!. But people keep on buying Samsung anyway and say how great their phone is etc but I guess they never encounter their customer service at all. For I the customer service is what gets too me. If you have GOOD customer service then you will have my service if NOT then good bye. Customer service really matter to me the most.
