Heavier loads would definitely drain it much faster, though, and running some extrapolations, we’d say that it can last around 9 hours playing back video, which is a great result, on par with the industry leaders like the Nexus 7.

It has a strong quad core CPU, a greater than full HD IPS display, good speakers, expandable storage, USB host support and multi-window multi-tasking.

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.
