So why do I say it's the best small/mis sized tablet? You may want to chime in with the nexus 7 or something from Samsung. No. As for the N7, the G Pad has a bigger display (almost one and a half inches bigger), bigger battery, better build and more premium materials (metal), expandable storage and a feature rich LG user interface. Samsung is Samsung, they don't even have virtual buttons...
Tis tablet is fast, powerful, has long battery life, feels super premium, as a crystal clear 1920 x 1200 full HD display, and looks gorgeous with thin bezels that make it look like a large phone. The buttons are very tactile and well made.
Now, the speakers would have been better placed on the front. With that said, there is two stereo speakers and they are loud and sound full and rich. It would be better if it were waterproof, but you can't have everything.
This particular G Pad happened to catch my attention, though, primarily because it came with a quad-core processor (which was on my "must have" list), and the latest Android OS, 4.4.2 KitKat, a combination that the majority of the other tablets that I had looked at did not have. Many have the quad-core, but are still running the 4.2 JellyBean OS which is more than capable, but not state of the art so to speak.
However, that turned out to be just one of so many other surprising features that this tablet contains, some of which I am still learning about, which seem to always leave me smiling and shaking my head. I had found a 7" display to be wanting even when viewed in HD, so I was looking for bigger, and I had assumed that an 8", or in this case 8.3", would actually be little more than a "glorified" 7". So I had been looking at 9", or in most cases 10.1" displays, even though I sometimes felt that they stretched the limits of what could actually be called a tablet. I mean Chromebooks and other netbooks start at 11.6", right?
Well it turns out that I was quite wrong. Instead of a "glorified" 7" display, the G Pad's 8.3 " display is more like a "slimmed-down" 10.1", so far having shown itself to be much more than adequate whether I'm reading, multi-tasking, or watching a video. Whether this is due to the full IPS HD (1920×1200), the judicious use of available space (only 7.2 mm separates edge of screen and edge of tablet along the length of both sides in portrait mode), or the fact that this happens to be a true tablet with many PC features rather than an on-the-fence PC wannabe that can't really decide on its true identity, I really cannot say for certain. Then again I really don't care: it is what it is and I couldn't be more pleased.
Another thing I was hoping for in my new tablet was an HDMI connection, but this turned out to be something like finding a needle in a haystack, at least among the tablets I was looking at in my price range, and this includes my G Pad. BUT, there are so many other options for connectivity (PC, phone, TV, etc) that I am certain it will not be missed. In fact it may even have been redundant to include it.
Another point that I have to make here concerns the feel of the tablet. While it is small enough to easily fit into an average purse or briefcase, and light enough to be handled by the wimpiest geek (338 grams or @ 12 ounces), it still has that solid, well-built feel to it. No cheap plastic skimping have I noticed, and the fit and finish seems very tight, not like something may skake loose if put into vibration mode one too many times.
Now I could continue on describing this G Pad's many features, but I doubt that would do it fair justice. Besides if you are anything like me, happily discovering new surprises in a new toy is all part of the fun, especially when its cost was not only less than $500, but actually less than $300.
And so taken as a whole it seems a little shocking to me that there were actually a couple, like 2, reviews that gave it only 3 or even 2 stars. That is, until I read the reasons. Battery didn't last as advertised? Well, you can't just look at the number of hours shown. That asterisk is there for a reason, and means that you have to actually read the additional note that was included. Still not satisfied? Then go to Settings and click on Battery to see where your usage went (yes, you can do that). Now go back and re-read the note and that should clear things up for you. And finally, no it's not waterproof, so you can't take it snorkeling or scuba diving, or even drop it into a pool of water. But then again, how many folks are there who are actually looking for, or expecting, that particular option, especially on an item that sells for less than $300? I rest my case.
