LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet -  Quad-Core 2GB RAM 16GB Flash 8.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great tablet. Awesome screen. Light. Very well built. Top quality device.

Cons: On occasion, this tablet will experience some lag. Nothing severe, but aggravating considering it's top notch hardware specs. I don't believe it's the tablet so much as the software. I've read that the Google Play Edition and those that are rooted and running CM11 have no lag issues. Hopefully the Kitkat update will fix these minor flaws.

Other Thoughts: This is my second LG G Pad from Newegg. If you read my earlier post, I received an international version of the tablet by mistake. Apparently, according to LG, if I live in the USA then I must own a USA version of the product to receive warranty work if needed. The international version of the tablet, according to LG tech support, has different hardware as well. The LG support tech determined by the serial number that I had received an international tablet from Newegg. Don't think this was Newegg's fault, as this tablet was in a box clearly marked with the proper hardware specs. Anyway, my second tablet is good to go. Everything is as it should be. I love this tablet. Aside from the occasional lag, it's a quality device.

LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet -  Quad-Core 2GB RAM 16GB Flash 8.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Light, Sleek, Beautifully made, Awesome screen

Cons: LG may have pulled a fast one with regard to the CPU

See 'Other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: 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.
