Strong design, Great full HD display, Storage expansion
Would we recommend the LG G Pad 8.3? Yes. It's a great tablet which offers a wide array of features and a beautiful screen at a price which pips Apple's latest offering.
If you're in the market for a smaller sized tablet then the Google Nexus 7 is still the pick of the bunch, but if you fancy a little more screen and can stretch your budget a little further the G Pad 8.3 is a solid shout.
Premium design, High-quality screen, Good smartphone companion with QPair
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 Pad 8.3 can easily become an object of intense desire.
The screen bezels are impressively small
The LG G Pad 8.3's story is written by its crisp display, capable chipset, and compact design, which almost stand for the pinnacle of LG's mobile tech. Obviously, the lack of network support relegates this to a living room tablet, which is why a more complete QRemote app would have been better (not just for TV's and set top boxes from predefined manufacturers).
Good viewing angles
The LG V900 Optimus Pad was impressive in almost every exercise, apart from 3D video recording, respectively playback gimmick. The 630 gram tablet's workmanship is good. The IPS screen that has very good viewing angles in addition to a brilliant color and contrast reproduction was very satisfactory. Seeing the content is possible from almost every position without the display content inverting or fading.
The V900 Optimus pad works with a 1 GHz clocked dual core CPU, model Tegra 250.
Above average display
So finally, while LG's tablet does come with a great screen and 3D, it fails to capitalize on the 3D as its cameras are rather average and it seems dated when you look at its bulkiness. It can be a fun thing to play around, but given the steep price, we'd only look at it with a huge carrier subsidy.
Browser is a little unstable
3D is very much an industry led thing at the moment and the Pad taps into that without really committing. The 3D recording and playback is fun, but we doubt you'll use it unless you're a hardened 3D fan. It's a shame because the 3D experience on the Optimus 3D, the company's smartphone due out later in the year, is so much better and something that impressed us a lot.
The Optimus Pad is certainly looking like one of the more exciting Honeycomb tablets on the horizon, with 3D video capture, a natty processor and a surprisingly light and comfortable design. Here's hoping the Pad looks equally as charming when we give it the full review treatment.
Quick, portable and intuitive to use
We really like the LG Optimus Pad: it's quick, portable and intuitive to use. However while we applaud LG for striking out and including a feature as unique as 3D, it won't have universal appeal and it is bound to push up the price. LG has yet to announce pricing, but it's available for £699 online, which seems a huge premium to pay especially considering you can get the Asus Eee Pad Transformer for £379.
Very wide display
The all new LG Optimus Pad tablet was unveiled and caught a lot of attention at the Mobile World Congress 2011. Very much like LG's prior device, LG G Slate, LG Optimus Pad is expected to still be better and much more popular for being the kind of Android gadget it seems like. Already, many online sites are quoting a price of Rs. 26000 for LG Optimus Pad and we vouch that it's worth the price. Why? Well, there are several reasons for that.
Okay device could be better
The first tablet from LG.
Well it is okay tablet for the price.
However, with T-mobile 4G the speed is bit disappointing.
I've compared with iPad and galaxy tab.
The iPad is faster in overall OS speed but when it comes to internet transfer speed only, G-slate is a bit faster.
It was the same way with galaxy tab.
Some how even with the TEGRA2 processor, G-Slate is laggy on it's performance.
It works great with rooted custom OS on it.
One of the best displays seen on a tablet so far
Clearly looking at things on paper, there's no denying that the T-Mobile G-Slate is a wonderful alternative to the pricier Motorola XOOM especially when it outperforms it on so many levels. T-Mobile surely picked the perfect tablet to get Android 3.0 Honeycomb to its existing base of customers, however, it still falls short in some areas that prevent it from really rising above the current stack of competition out there.
High quality materials
The T-Mobile G-Slate by LG is a very nice tablet hampered only by its price and tweener size. We love the build quality, attractive looks that remind us of the LG G2x on T-Mobile, and bright display. T-Mobile's HSPA+ network is fast, and if you're in a good coverage area, you won't be pining for WiFi. The Slate is fast, has decent speakers and handles 3D games and video playback well.
Excellent IPS Based Display
The LG G-Slate tablet is a solid Android 3.0 tablet choice on the market. Performance is on par with other devices but it does trump the 10-inch models by being slightly more portable with its 8.9-inch display that also is one of the better on the market. The downside is that the 3D feature is really just a gimmick and the pricing is just too high if you aren't already a T-Mobile customer who wants to sign up for a two-year contract.
Really like this tablet! Like the size! Tried the 3D and figured out how far away from the camera you need to be to make the best 3D image. Did have a little electronic (feedback)? background noise with the video. Enjoy the apps I have gotten from Google Playstore. The price was right too!
