  • Summary: So far, the G Pad 8.3 is only available in a version with 16 GB of memory, and black or white case. A variant with LTE modem is not yet available, but rumors speak about an imminent release. Official accessories are meager, there are add-ons. A Quick cover which automatically turns the tablet on and off (as suggested by the tablet's setting) will be probably follow in the future, but it is not available as of yet.
  • Pros: very good workmanship, smart design with a thin frame, Full HD display with IPS technology, weight, microSD slot, meaningful software enhancements
  • Cons: speakers, poor performance in everyday life, "only" Android 4.2, display a bit too dark for outdoor use, battery running time, camera

LG G Pad 8.3 review

9 May 2014
  • Summary: We really enjoyed our time with the G Pad 8.3, as it fits perfectly in the middle of the size spectrum: big enough to take on the iPad mini with Retina at a lower cost, and a better media consumption device than the smaller, lighter Nexus 7.
  • Pros: When first picking up the G Pad, you notice its heft and solidness. It’s a compact tablet with excellent weight distribution, thanks to a sheet of aluminum that covers the back. It’s the addition of metal that separates the G Pad from Samsung’s line of Galaxy Tabs, and sets it apart from the 2013 Nexus 7; LG’s offering has better hardware than anything Samsung or Asus has put out in over two years. Turning the slate over reveals an 8.3-inch IPS display with a 1920×120...
  • Cons: If you’re looking for a tablet with a great camera (and why would you be?), the G Pad 8.3 is not recommended (nor are most Android tablets, for that matter). Despite a competent camera app, photos taken from the 5MP rear sensor are abominably bad, full of grain and dim colours. The 4,600mAh battery cell inside the G Pad 8.3 is neither big nor small, lasting just over a day of consistent usage when connected to WiFi. Standby time is astonishingly good — the tablet lost...

LG G Pad 8.3 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The LG G Pad 8.3 represents a solid effort from a company just getting back into the tablet market. The device offers many of the same great multitasking features found on LG's smartphones, and you get both strong audio and a built-in IR blaster. Unfortunately, while the G Pad boasts a full HD screen, it's on the dim side. Plus, competing tablets last longer on a charge.

  • Excerpt: After a long absence the G Pad 8.3 is the first foray into the Android tablet market in a few years for LG. Following a few failed tablets early on in Android’s life on bigger screens, they called it quits until the (you guessed it) 8.3-inch G Pad, and it’s one slate worth taking a […]

LG's Google edition G Pad 8.3 tops the original

CNET
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Android purists will find Google's mid-sized LG G Pad 8.3 more compelling, but it's pricier than the model that's overlaid with LG's skin.
  • Pros: The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition features pure Android with a deeper Google Now integration, and receives the latest updates. It also has a sharp display, expandable memory, and runs a tad faster than its original LG counterpart.
  • Cons: The G Pad doesn't have the same elegant build-quality as Google's Nexus tablets, and this stock model lacks a few useful apps compared to the LG-skinned original.
