Going out to buy a new cell phone can be a bit of a nightmare. There are so many cool phones on the market that choosing one is tough. There are a lot of factors that you need to consider in your purchasing decision, from price to make to operating system. If you decide to go with an Android phone, you're making a pretty good decision. Androids are fast, easy to use and generally very reasonably priced. But even in the Android market there are a lot of devices to choose from. Today we're looking at two Android phones, the Pantech Discover and the LG Optimus 4X HD. Both of these phones run Android's 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and they retail for similar prices with most mobile service operators. So we put them to the test, head to head, to find out which is the better buy. We wanted to compare them and to see where there differences truly lie. If you're in the market for a new phone and you're considering either of these models, then you might want to keep reading to find out exactly how they match up and which one we recommend.

Why the Pantech Discover Might be the Phone for You...

The Discover is a great little phone, and it has several benefits. Firstly, it gets faster maximum data speeds. In general, faster data speeds mean quicker downloading and faster opening of web pages. The Discover also has the larger screen, measuring in at 4.8 inches as opposed to the 4.7 inch screen on the Optimus. This might not seem like a big difference, and it's not, but when you're browsing the web or reading emails then every little bit of extra screen space helps. Finally, you get a much better camera on the Pantech. The Discover is equipped with a massive 12.6 MP in built device, as opposed to the standard 8 MP camera on the Optimus. That means that photos taken with the Discover are noticeably better quality and have more fine detail than those taken by the LG Optimus. The Discover is not a bad package at all.

Why You Should Consider the LG Optimus 4X HD...

The main benefit of the Optimus is it's screen. It does have the smaller display, but it is better quality. The display on the Optimus has two and a half times higher screen resolution as well as seventy per cent more PPI (pixels per inch). These two things combined mean that the picture quality on the Optimus is noticeably brighter, clearer and crisper than that of the Pantech Discover.

Which One Do You Recommend?

We do like the better picture quality on the LG Optimus 4X HD. However, when it comes to value for money, the Pantech Discover just has more and better features. The larger screen and the better camera really make it a much better deal than the Optimus. There are both great phones though, and we wouldn't be disappointed with either. But in the end, the Pantech Discover just edges out the Optimus to get our recommendation.
