A variant of U.S. Cellular's LG Splendor, the mid-level 3G-enabled LG Venice sports the same 4.3-inch screen, Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 5-megapixel camera, and 1GHz processor -- all available on Boost's prepaid network.

-Hello everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET here with the LG Venice from Boost Mobile. Now, the LG Venice is a variant of the unlocked LG Optimus L7 and the LG Splendor from US Cellular. The mid-range device is equipped with a bright 4.3-inch touch screen and a VGA front-facing camera. On the back, there's a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash and inside are 1 gigahertz processor and a 1.7 Amp battery which roughly translates to a reported usage time of 9 hours. The phone runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich and has LG's Optimus 3.0 UI laid over it. The UI features LG's note taking app quick memo and customizable icons. The handset is available from Boost for $220 and for a limited time, users who purchased the Venice will also get 50 gigs of free storage from Vox, again, I'm Lynn and this has been the first look at Boost LG Venice.
