G Pad 8.3

Reviews Word on the street for the LG G Pad 8.3

I suspect most folks will love the 273 ppi display, and wouldn't imagine there's a better display on the market in this size unless you put it directly next to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 with its insanely high 2560 x 1600 display or the iPad mini with Retina display with its superior colors and black levels.

I wasn't kidding about it being sharp; it has a wide viewing angle, it's easy to view outdoors in sunlight, and text and menu icons look smooth.

With this LCD IPS display, LG has just nailed the balance between blue and red, resulting in a perfect color temperature of about 6588 K (kelvin), with the reference point being 6500 K. That's pretty much unprecedented for such a display so far.

As far as stock editors go the one of the G Pad 8.3 is pretty well equipped and its intuitive interface makes it easy to use.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Colors are bright, viewing angles are excellent, and the 1920x1200 resolution looks great on an 8.3-inch display.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
Gaming is pretty great on the 8.3 inch screen, because it's large enough to easily see everything on the screen but small enough to deal with touch controls without things being awkward.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
There isn't that much fine detail when viewing the photos in their actual size, but they are perfect for viewing in smaller, web-friendly resolutions, such as those used by social networks.

Operating system

Plus, the faster performance speeds should be welcomed by all, no matter how much you like the vanilla OS.

LG's software is incredibly customizable, even allowing you to change stuff like the icon size.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2013)
What it serves for is to enable you to display up to three app windows on the screen, which would probably be quite useful if you really need some serious multitasking capabilities.

The stock Music app is the destination for tunes, with tracks listed by title, artist, album and genre, making it easy to browse your collection and find the songs you want.

I also think it's a great size for watching movies and playing games.

Operating System

LG has customized Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean quite heavily, and the experience is similar to the LG G2 and G Flex: lots of Q apps (LG's name for their custom apps and features), a note-taking app, screen capture with annotation, a language translator that uses the camera and more.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2014)
There is very little stock about the G Pad, but of course it feels familiar enough to be intuitive for anyone who's used to using Android.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
Without a doubt, its main differentiating factor is the premium design, which is unrivaled by any other Android tablet so far.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2013)


LG offers quite a few shooting options for ISO, HDR, panorama, VR panorama, white balance and more.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2014)
Thankfully, the 5 MP camera is good for what it is, though you shouldn't expect wonders from it.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2013)
This isn't to say that the image quality of the display is perfect.
