Light, Sleek, Beautifully made, Awesome screen
LG may have pulled a fast one with regard to the CPU

This is a great tab, but while checking out a few system information apps I have installed I discovered that it does not have the Snapdragon 600 as advertised! CPU-Z as well as 2 other system info apps state it has the S4 Pro (it appears to be the same one that's in the NEXUS 7). Those same system apps installed on my HTC ONE report the ONE as having the Snapdragon 600, so it doesn't appear to be any issue with how the CPU reports to the app. That would explain why my HTC out benchmarks this tablet. Considering returning this. I could get the NEXUS 7 for a lot cheaper. I got this tablet because of the somewhat more forward spec'd Snapdragon 600. LG may have cut a few corners during production. So far, not happy with finding this out.
