LG G Pad 8.3 review

theverge.com
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Google’s just another carrier, or at least that’s what it’ll tell you. Just as Verizon and AT&T customize every device they sell, with apps and services and robotic ringtones, Google’s selling its own flavor of some of the most popular devices on the market. It just so happens that Google Play Editions’ “customizations” are in fact reversions — from the HTC One to the Samsung Galaxy S4 , Google strips all added features and functionality and reverts back to the purest...
  • Pros: Thin, light design, Great display
  • Cons: Inferior app ecosystem, Stock Android doesn't have full SD card support

LG G Pad 8.3

CNET
3 December 2013
  • Summary: The LG G Pad 8.3 has a good screen and a spritely processor and wraps it up in an attractive metal body. For £250, it's a good choice if you're already an Android user or simply don't want to splash the extra cash on the iPad mini.
  • Cons: Unimpressive camera; No 3G or 4G connectivity; Older version of Android.

LG jumps back in the tablet game with the G Pad 8.3

CNET
3 December 2013
  • Summary: With its speedy and reliable performance, the LG G Pad 8.3 is a solid small-sized tablet, but for non-Verizon customers, the smoother and less expensive Google Nexus 7 is the better choice.
  • Cons: At $350, the Wi-Fi variant is steeply priced, and its design lacks a premium feel.

LG G Pad 8.3 Review: In Depth

Recombu
1 December 2013
  • Excerpt: LG hasn’t had much luck in the tablet market. The company tried its hand briefly back when Google thought Honeycomb was a good idea, but never made a second attempt. It’s interesting, then, to see LG make a tablet comeback when the competition is at its fiercest. Is the G Pad 8.3 worthy of consideration, though? It’s fair to say that the G Pad looks a lot like the iPad mini. The size, shape, and general design all look to have been aped from Cupertino’s smaller tablet.
  • Pros: Great display, Just the right size, Well priced
  • Cons: Occasionally sluggish, Backlight issues, Heavy software "features"

  • Summary: With a suggested retail price of Php16,990 , the LG G Pad 8.3 is probably among the best Android tablets you an get around these days, right up there with the Nexus 7 2013. In fact, the two are are almost in the same caliber but the G Pad 8.3 slightly edges over the Nexus 7 2013 in some aspects (like premium build, wireless remote, expandable storage).

  • Summary: The LG G Pad 8.3 is a very good tablet, and if I had to boil it down, I would say that the amazing display and some of the LG customization (like the remote control) may be sway factors. However, it is priced high enough ($349) to make it a non-obvious sale. With the 32GB Nexus 7 priced at $269 and the 32GB iPad mini retina priced at $499, LG sits in a middle ground with a path that is difficult to predict.

  • Conclusion: The well-built 8-inch LG G Pad is a good smaller Android tablet, but it doesn't do anything to stand out from the crowded pack. Especially given its high $350 price.
  • Pros: Slim and well-built. Solid performance. Good multitasking interface.
  • Cons: On the pricey side. Lousy front camera.

LG G Pad 8.3 review: well-designed, but priced too high

Engadget
1 November 2013
  • Summary: LG's G Pad is a nice surprise. For a company that's only ever tried to make its mark in the US with smartphones, this 8.3-inch tablet is a welcome change of pace and a solid Android option, to boot. Yes, it has its shortcomings: There's the herky-jerky responsiveness and LG's overbearing software add-ons. But those dings don't conspire to make the G Pad a bad purchase.
  • Pros: Comfortable and stylish design, Gorgeous high-res display, Battery life on par with similar Android tablets
  • Cons: Uneven performance, Glut of non-essential LG 'Q' apps, Slightly expensive compared to rival tablets

LG G Pad 8.3 review

Digitaltrends
21 October 2013
  • Conclusion: So, the G Pad 8.3 has weak sound, but other than that it’s a very competitive tablet. So it comes down to this: The G Pad has a bigger screen than the Nexus 7, doubles its processing performance, and has a nice MicroSD card slot if you want more than 16GB of memory. You will pay $120 for these upgrades. If that math works for you, then go for it. The G Pad is $20 more than the iPad Mini.
  • Pros: Perfect 8-inch screen size, Comfortable to hold, MicroSD slot for extra storage, Powerful processor, Great all around tablet
  • Cons: More expensive than top competitors, Rear speakers are muffled and tinny, Like Samsung, LG clutters Android with too many apps, Seams around screen are too flexible
