    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. :(

    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.

    I don't buy 2nd hand personally and with this burn-in,I wouldn't even think about it.IMO,you should keep your exhibit.
