  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (Quad-core 1.70GHz)
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB Flash Storage
  • 8.3" Full HD IPS (1920x1200) Display
  • Wi-Fi, BT, MicroSD Slot, Dual Camera
  • Android 4.2.2 Upgradeable to Android 4.4(Kit Kat)

Pros:

Crazy fast processor for a midsize tablet, games and apps load very fast and run smooth, I haven't had any sort of lag on any apps I have, a great choice for anyone who does alot of multitasking, LG's 'slide aside' also makes multitasking easy.

Quick and easy setup (It does ask you to sign up for a couple unnecessary things on start though, if you dont want to just tap the home button).

Sturdily built and well constructed, the rear camera lens in recessed far enough in the metal frame to protect it from scratches just as well as any other tablet/phone can.

Great display quality can be bright enough to see in almost any environment, the color on mine was clear and perfect.

16GB storage with microSD slot to add up to 64GB, 16GB is more than enough for me but its nice to know I won't need to worry about running out of space.

Sleeps extremely well using VERY little power when left on and not in use, the battery lasts long in use as well this tablet is perfect for people who forget to turn things off.

Miracast & SmartShare both worked great and I had no trouble streaming media with either of them.

Cons:

The one thing I hate so very much about this tablet itself is the cameras. I take a TON of pictures, if anything the thing I would use this the most for IS taking pictures, I have alot of cats and like to randomly take pics of them whenever they are acting silly. The cameras are great in daylight & MOST indoor lighting, but I have 60w equivalent CFL 'warm' lighting throughout my house & at night for some reason all the pictures come out very dark even if brightness & exposure are maxed out, i have to lay down with the ceiling light directly shining in my face to get a clear picture of myself, due to this I can't take pictures/clips at home after around 6PM which well really really sucks.

For something that costs over 300$, the box it comes in has it extraordinarily unprotected, I was shocked to open it and see the screen just right there pressed against the front of under less than 1/16" of 'cardboard' thats too thin to even qualify as cardboard. Whose idea was that I mean really?? What?? Sticking this in a plain bubble envelope is far more protective than the box this ships in! I noticed several low reviews complaining of screen/color issues and I'd assume this might have something to do with it. Mines perfectly clear & looks great.

A semi-con is that its just too new, not alot of cases to choose from that fit, it definitely should have shipped with some sort of protective case, especially considering the badly designed box it ships in.

Other Thoughts:

Personally i think tablets having an IR to turn them into expensive remotes is kind of a con haha. Yes its a useful function, but I've spilled alot of stuff on my remotes ruining many of them over the years and this isn't something I'd want to be tempted to use as one. But really the only real cons for me is the camera flaws and the horrible packaging. I'd give this a 5/5 if it weren't for the two major cons it works wonderfully, long battery life, fast, everything you could want really its hard to complain. Personally for me its more of a 2/5 but that's because the camera is so so very important to me, but I'm giving a 4/5 cause other than that its a wonderful tablet great for beginners & experienced users alike.
