Default Virgin Mobile Galaxy Victory or S2?

Im deciding on choosing either the Galaxy Victory or S2. I like the Galaxy Victory because is has 4g LTE which I love speed but the camera arent great 5.0. The S2 has a bigger screen but only 4g and has better camera 8.0. Their prices are the same on Virgin Mobile. What is the galaxy Victory latest version? What is the S2 latest version?

EDIT: 4G LTE or 4G?

OK, the victory I'd a far superior phone. And with some great rom development, it had benched higher than the s3 I believe (correct me if I'm wrong). The s2 also has many bugs. Lte Is supposed to be amazing but none in my area yet but sprint is expanding.

My sister has the GS2, I have the Victory. 4G-Wimax (GS2) is no comparison to 4GLTE (Victory), it's like watching the rabbit vs the turtle (and no, the turtle does not win). If you like bigger screens, you'll want the GS2, but I like being able to have my phone fit comfortably in my pocket (Victory). As for 8mp vs 5mp : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=18753469

I personally recommend the Victory.

I would also recommend the victory. Read around the victory threads, you'll see its more of a minified s3.

Moved on over to the device comparisons forum to be better served

Being a former s2 owner myself, I didn't really have any complaints with it (with the exception of having to mobile Odin a safe recovery on each flash)

I never used a victory so I can't chime in on that, but I've heard specs are pretty good opposed to the s2.

I'd say if you like a big phone, go for the s2.

Or if you could downgrade on size for better specs (aside from the camera), go for the victory.

Cheers
