Default Brand new Exhibit II vs used SII with burn in.

I brought myself a brand new Samsung Exhibit II phone 2 months ago. But now I have the option to get a Samsung Galaxy SII for free, but with screen burn in. (faint icons showing on white backgrounds)

Which would you choose? Keep your 2 month old Exhibit II or get an SII with screen burn in? I can't keep both. Sorry if it's a dumb question, but I can't decide on my own.

Moved to Device/Carrier Comparisons section.
Welcome to AF, Warnova. Depends, how bad the screen burn in is?

Thanks. And here are a couple of pics to show. It's mostly noticeable on white and blue screens. You can also see clock burn in a few pics. There's also a greenish tint in the center of the screen. That's more noticeable when using the camera against a white background. The dark gray spots is the poorly applied screen protector. First one I had trouble with in a while. I need to buy a few more and try again.
