Top Customer Reviews
This tablet comes with a slimmer capacitive stylus with 3.5mm width. Besides a support for an external storage via microSD card (up to 128GB), the LG G Pad II 8.0 houses the company's own LG-QPair 2.0 app, Microsoft Office apps and Quick Memo+ feature among others. The KnockON feature is also included.
As for the specifications, the Android 5.0 Lollipop-based LG G Pad II 8.0 tablet equips an 8-inch WXGA (1280x800 pixels) resolution IPS display like the first-gen G Pad 8.0, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, clubbed with 1.5GB RAM, which is a slight bump from the previous generation's 1GB.
The LG G Pad II 8.0 includes an inbuilt 32GB of eMMC storage, along with Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity options. Measuring 210.8x124.2x8.95mm, the tablet weighs 347 grams and is backed by the same 4200mAh battery for 10 hours+ of use. Hope this honest review help in your decision to this amazing LG tablet
Update 2015-10-18: it will work with NTFS. Apparently, it depends on the drive. Doesn't work with my Corsair Voyager GTX 128GB USB SSD formatted either NTFS or FAT32, but it works fine with an mSATA SSD 512GB in a USB3 enclosure formatted NTFS. Also didn't work with the Corsair Slider X2 256GB FAT32, but works with most other USB drives I've tried. The only other thing I've noticed is that the detection of USB drives occasionally quit working with one of my large SSD USB3 drives. I'd have to reboot the tablet to get it to detect again.
Update 2915-12-08: I earlier posted that it was a little slow to change apps. I had a Samsung EVO 64GB microSD card (45 MB/s) installed at the time. I upgraded it to a PNY 64GB microSD with 90 MB/s transfer rate and it seems to have sped up the tablet. It's now faster switching apps. So this tablet's performance seems more dependent on the microSD speed.
Not only does it have a beautiful display, the little extras that LG added such as the stylus and full size USB port are great! I love that I can use qpair and pair my LG G2 phone to is so I wont have to miss a call or text message if I'm away.
Awesome Product. Great Job LG, on the price and on the tablet itself.
I would still buy this again, even if I had known this when I bought the tablet, since I really like it, but it does diminish my enthusiasm for it. If it weren't for the lack of an upgrade, I'd give this tablet five solid stars. I'm giving it four and a half, rounded down for the disappointment factor.
Great expandibility: It takes up to a 128GB SD card, PLUS it has a full-sized USB port, which I've used a lot more than I thought I would, primarily with a low-profile USB flash drive with videos and audios on it, though it's also great for transferring documents, photos, etc., or accessing some that you don't want to keep on the tablet itself or that someone else gives you to look at. I've also plugged my Canon digital camera into the drive and it's been immediately recognized as a camera with full access to the photos & videos on it and the ability to download all or some of them. That's really handy -- and great not to have to mess with a USB adapter.
Very responsive screen: It has gorilla glass, so it feels good, and it's very responsive but not overly so (I had a Dell Windows tablet that was so overly responsive it was sometimes unusable, since it often would interpret single taps as doubles). The processor may not be the fastest available either when it came out or now, but with a different launcher loaded rather than the stock launcher, it's very snappy. (I use the Nova Launcher.)
Affordable: I kept looking for a decent tablet in the $100 to $200 price range and just couldn't find anything that hadn't been released years before. Since I wanted to keep the tablet for two to three years, starting out with a tablet that had been released more than a year earlier just wasn't on for me. It seemed that there were only really cheap, unresponsive so-called "entry-level" tablets and ones that were out of my price range. This was just about the only decent mid-range tablet I could find at the time I was looking (March 2016).
Overall aesthetics: I usually keep my tablet in its case, but when it's not in it, it's lightweight with a fairly grippy back. It has enough bezel to allow you to hold it without accidentally touching the sensitive screen, but it's not bulky looking. There's nothing particularly new and outstanding about its looks, but it's a tablet and there's a limit to the variations you can make to the shape and dimensions and keep it functional.
Size: I think that an 8" tablet really hits the sweet spot. Big enough to work on or watch videos, but small enough to be very portable. I wouldn't bring it with me to appointments nearly as often if it were larger. It's also light and, even with the case, doesn't add much to my purse. I also like the dimensions of the screen, which I find perfect for watching videos, rather than the slightly squarer tablets with more width. I have very small hands, but I can still (just barely) hold it in one hand with my thumb on one side and my fingers on the other.
Not upgradeable to Marshmallow or beyond. I'm happy with Lollipop, mostly, though there are some M features that I wish I could take advantage of, such as expanded use of the external SD card. This is the biggest drawback of this tablet. That said, I do like Lollipop (some folks don't, for whatever reason), so I don't feel like ditching this otherwise fantastic tablet just to get Marshmallow.
Mediocre cameras. I mean, very mediocre. They are fine in bright sunshine, particularly the rear camera, and not bad indoors in very bright light, but in typical indoor lighting, they're not good. The "selfie" camera is really not good, although it's fine for video chatting if you're not too picky.
If you're in the market for a reasonably priced tablet and don't mind Lollipop forever, then I strongly recommend this one, or one of LG's more recent versions that do have Marshmallow or beyond. I plan to keep this one at least one more year, and it will probably be hard to find its replacement.
