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

 

LG tries. It tries for US relevance, but the company's product offerings -- usually its smartphones -- consistently lack the je ne sais quoi necessary to

Comfortable and stylish design ; Gorgeous high-res display ; Battery life on par with similar Android tablets

Uneven performance ; Glut of non-essential LG 'Q' apps ; Slightly expensive compared to rival tablets

LG's G Pad is a beautifully designed 8.3-inch tablet with an equally beautiful display. But its uneven performance combined with its relatively steep $350 price make rival Android tablets look like a steal.

LG G Pad 8.3 review: Couch surfer

 

Android slates are available in almost every screen diagonal under the sun, and LG had plenty of targets to aim for, planning their return to the tablet game. An 8.3-inch display looks like the right choice, considering how the scene has changed in the...

8.3" 16M-color WUXGA capacitive touchscreen; works with gloves, KnockOn to wake/sleep ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean; LG Optimus UI ; Quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset ; 5 MP autofocus camera...

No network data version, Wi-Fi only ; Snapdragon 600 isn't the fastest chipset on the market anymore ; No NFC ; Camera quality is unimpressive ; QRemote app only supports TV's and set top boxes ; No Dual Screen Dual Play

The LG G Pad 8.3 is certainly one of the most compelling tablet choices on the market right now. It's among a special few to offer Full HD resolution on a sub-9" tablet, and has an excellent design to go with it. The lightweight and thin construction...

LG G Pad X 8.3 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The LG G Pad X 8.3 is a good Android tablet value for the price, but some lag and a buggy touch screen make it frustrating to use at times.

Full-sized USB port. Fast LTE performance. Good rear camera.

Sometimes laggy. Buggy touch screen. Battery life could be better.

Comparisons and Conclusions The G Pad X 8.3 is the best tablet available for its price with a built-in Verizon LTE modem. That's a huge caveat, because most people will have a phone with hotspot mode, and I don't think you should go out of your way to...

LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition review

 

If you're an Android purist, you're going to love this Google Play edition of the LG G Pad 8.3. Nearly identical to the original in hardware, the major difference you'll find between the two versions comes down to the operating system and skin that you...

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.

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.

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.

LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition

 

The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a boon for die-hard stock Android fans, but it's missing some of the features that made the original tablet compelling in the first place.

Runs stock Android. Slim and well-built. Solid performance. Sharp display.

On the pricey side. Loses some useful LG features.

Conclusions The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a fine tablet, and basically the only stock Android tablet you can get with a microSD card slot—a feature conspicuously missing from every Nexus device, though somewhat stilted here. But beyond that,...

LG G Pad 8.3 review

 

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...

Thin, light design ; Great display ; Pure, stock Android

Inferior app ecosystem ; Stock Android doesn't have full SD card support

A good tablet in a sea of good tablets

LG G Pad 8.3 review

 

Editors' Note, March 12, 2014: This review has been updated with analysis of the G Pad 8.3's 4G LTE data performance on Verizon Wireless.

The LG G Pad 8.3 has a crisp full-HD display, a fast quad-core processor, and expandable memory.

At $350, the Wi-Fi variant is steeply priced, and its design lacks a premium feel.

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.

LG G Pad 8.3

 

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 price.

Slim and well-built. Solid performance. Good multitasking interface.

On the pricey side. Lousy front camera.

Battery life was slightly better than the Galaxy Note 8.0's on the same-size 4600mAh battery. Playing a video with the screen set to maximum brightness, the G Pad managed 5 hours, 53 minutes, while the Galaxy Note got 5 hours, 35 minutes, and the Nexus...

LG G Pad 8.3 Review

 

After a rather successful re-entry in the high-end smartphone market, LG feels “ready” for the very challenging tablet market which is expected to grow by 30% every year as far as predictions go (2016). LG has studied people's usage pattern and […]

LG G Pad 8.3 Review

 

After a lengthy absence, LG is now back with a new tablet, and this time, it seems the South Korean company has come up with an even more ambitious product. Making full use of the hype surrounding the new G2 Android smartphone, LG is gearing up to...

Premium design ; High-quality screen ; Good smartphone companion with QPair

Average camera ; A bit laggy at times ; No 3G/4G version

The LG G Pad 8.3 is a very cool tablet. Without a doubt, its main differentiating factor is the premium design, which is unrivaled by any other Android tablet so far. With its slim profile and high-quality materials involved in its construction, the G...
