Hello espylacopa, Thanks for asking...

I gotta say I am VERY happy with this Venice! This being my third android phone (I get a new phone about once every 8 or 9 months I have a list around somewhere & I believe in the past 9 years I have had around 23 phones so far, YES I AM a cell phone addict ) it's VERY fast. It's the same size at the SG2 actually (I held it up to the display at Best Buy & compared the two).

I also get service in my house in places that I normally didn't have service before (with the same provider Boost Mobile) so that is a huge PLUS.

It's got the 5MP camera with flash that is so clear it's almost unreal. It has a few cool camera settings that I didn't have with other phones. Panorama, "Say cheese" and the front camera for Skype. It came with a 2GB mini SD card too so that was a pleasant surprise.

This Venice has the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) & I have nothing but greatness to say about it. Going from Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to a 4.0 ICS is a huge jump. Kinda like going from Windows 98 to Windows 7. The screen is HUGE compared to the STU - I did have a fear of going from a slide keyboard to touch screen keyboard BUT it took me all of about 2 days to get the hang of it.

The battery life is about the same as any other Android out there. I talk & text a lot so by the end of a day it's at about 15%. The design of this phone is very slim & that took some getting used to but it's easy for me to adapt.

I haven't rooted it yet & I don't know if I will but so far this phone is so much more than I expected. I had my heart set on the Galaxy S2 BUT I didn't want to spend that kind of money ($369.00) & now I am glad I didn't. This phone is perfect for what I use it for - Games, texting, talking, apps & of course Facebooking. I would honestly recommend this phone to anyone who is wanting to upgrade to a new phone but not wanting to go broke for one. The ONLY 'con' about this phone is I haven't found many cases for it yet & I am the type that has to have a phone case on my phone. I'm VERY anal about the condition of the phone I have. I don't like scratches, dents, dings of any size. Heck, I don't even like getting fingerprints on it for that matter. I treat my phones better than most people get treated LOL.

Overall I would give this phone 2 thumbs way up!

As time passes & I learn more stuff about this phone I will be hanging around the LG Venice threads.

Plaigh, Nice to meet you
