does not work with audio apps well 02/10/2014
nice size and screen quality--micro SD is key positive
does not allow streaming audio apps to work in screen off mode for battery save
I bought this with a lot of positive expectations and hope--newegg delivered as usual--it is nice but what I noticed was that any of my audio stream apps would be shut off to default pause and not play when the unit was in screen off battery save--lg support is a typical hot mess of corporate irresponsibility. see the quote below and understand that we are not able to have tunein radio/stitcher/bbc/native krcw app play while the screen was sleeping and sometimes while reading a website or another app!!!! Totally slly I did installed an add-on wake-lock app to see if that can override whatever the faulty OS issue may be--no luck--I would say do not choose this if you like to read and listen to audio apps at the same time or at all. It will be interesting if LG monitors this and thegpad product manager shows up for work--as it is clear no one can articulate what the constraints are--in summary I just ordered the new galaxy tab pro and hope that this issue is just LG--hopeful as my current galaxy tab is fine with screen off and background audio app.
LG cannot seem to get this sorted and the lack of taking ownership and having the US product manager for gpad get involved and follow up directly on an issue that is significant for the corporate mentality--
