Default Virgin Mobile Samsung Galaxy Reverb vs. Samsung Galaxy Ring vs. Samsung Galaxy Victory?


I'm looking to invest in a new phone and upgrade from the LG Optimus V (really cannot stand the OS and the smallness of the screen). I've found three phones from VM that look promising, but really wasn't sure where to go. I'm fine with all of the prices, especially with the discounts, so price isn't an issue. Just wanted to know what people thought of each: the Reverb, Ring, and Victory. Thanks!

Well, between the three of them, the (confirmed) best spec'ed one is the Victory. It has a dual core processor that's from a newer generation, it's got LTE, a bigger battery, more RAM and android 4.1 as opposed to android 4.0. Now, the thing about the Samsung Ring is that it's not confirmed whether or not it's a single core or quad core processor yet, and there is a considerable amount of controversy about that, but it also doesn't have LTE either way, which only really should matter to you if you use data on the go much. Personally, either way, you can't go wrong with the Galaxy Victory 4G LTE. Spec wise, It's a solid phone for a decent price.

Ring has dual core 1.4 Ghz and feels very similar to the Victory. 4G LTE for the extra $20 seems very worth it to me.

According to Samsung's website, the Galaxy Ring is a single core. They make no mention of different models or variants of this phone. Even VM has redacted the "quad" portion of the description. It's a MSM8655 1.4GHz Snapdragon S2 single-core.
