If you're not worried about being on the latest software update, and you would enjoy a color saturated screen as supposed to color accuracy; Get the Samsung S2.
The LG Venice, according to a certain YouTube review, has had many issues on a previous model. Now it was repackaged for Boost I believe; however, the problems might still be present. I wouldn't choose the LG because you might not have as a pleasant experience as on the S2.
