iPhone 4 8GB w/ 3G network or Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE?

by AcrosstheUniverse27 / September 30, 2013 12:09 AM PDT

I want to buy a phone and I'm stuck between the iPhone 4 8GB (with 3G network) or the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE.

So I need your help. Which one should i buy and why?

They are both priced about the same, but I just cant decide which one I should get and which one is the best option for the money. I need them both for the web and would use the camera often. The Samsung is actually on sale. It is originally priced higher than the iphone 4, but I don't know if it is the better phone. So I need help in choosing.

Here are the links to the site in which I am buying the phones off of:



Just so you know, I have been using an old $20 flip phone for the past 5 years and have no experience to base my decision off of. However, I'm good with gadgets and computers, so I don't care for the easier to use phone. Just looking for the better of the two.

Thank You =)

The Samsung is a newer device than the iPhone 4. Can you check/try the phones at a local store ? I have both a Samsung Galaxy S4 and an iPhone 4 on my account. I like the greater flexibility for customization and available downloads on my Samsung vs. the iPhone. Just my $.02 worth. I

I would be ordering these phones online so I would not be able to see them in the store. It seems as though the Victory has more features... But the iphone has more internal storage.

Thank you for your suggestion, i do think i will be going with the Samsung. Happy

Memory not as much of an issue.....

In reply to: ....

Most Samsung phones have a Micro SD card slot (currently max 32 Gigabyte) and the iPhone has no memory card slot. Since you can easily swap Micro SD cards, it has a virtually unlimited capacity. Hope that is useful to you.
