One of the best Android tablets on the market comes from an unlikely source – LG. LG once stood for “ Lucky Goldstar ” – an amalgam of two merged South Korean companies. LG made a name for itself with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 , some of the best...

There's an awful lot to like about LG's iPad Mini rival. It's sleek, light, and very well engineered. But for all those not inconsiderable successes, the design and hardware is let down by the changes wrought to the tablet's Android 4.2-based OS. It's...

After a long absence the G Pad 8.3 is the first foray into the Android tablet market in a few years for LG. Following a few failed tablets early on in Android's life on bigger screens, they called it quits until the (you guessed it) 8.3-inch G Pad, and...

It's truly remarkable how far the Android tablet sector has come in recent months, and the LG G-Pad 8.3 is arguably one of the best small-screen slates we've seen so far. The larger screen, better design and expandable memory all help it put the...

If you're in the market for a small-scale tablet device and the Nexus 7 hasn't taken your fancy, then the G-Pad 8.3 is definitely a solid choice. The design is appealing, the screen is pin-sharp and there's enough power under the bonnet to keep most...

The LG G Pad 8.3 is a sharp high end Android 8" class tablet. It has a strong quad core CPU, a greater than full HD IPS display, good speakers, expandable storage, USB host support and multi-window multi-tasking. Yes, it costs more than some other...

The G Pad 8.3 is undoubtedly LG's best tablet to date and at £199 it's a bit of a steal. A nice selection of hardware and software make this a great choice for a small tablet. However, occasionally laggy performance means the Nexus 7 might be a better choice.

There's no easy way to say it – the G Pad has been a confusing mess of high points and low. LG has excelled in some areas, and completely missed the mark on others. It's a contradiction that feels like it's been brought in to-budget rather than...

The time I've been spending with G Pad has been a lot of fun, and an overall pleasant experience. With a great build quality and a speedy Android experience, there's very little to dislike about the G Pad. Even if skins aren't your deal, I'm of the...

We really enjoyed our time with the G Pad 8.3, as it fits perfectly in the middle of the size spectrum: big enough to take on the iPad mini with Retina at a lower cost, and a better media consumption device than the smaller, lighter Nexus...

LG's G Pad is a beautifully designed 8.3-inch tablet with an equally beautiful display. But its uneven performance combined with its relatively steep $350 price make rival Android tablets look like a...

The LG G Pad 8.3 is powerful, slim, but its display is not bright. Thanks to its quad core processor with relatively high clock rate , its performance belongs to the upper class and is even comparable with the Google Nexus 7's . In addition, LG...

At around £250 it's certainly not expensive, but then again, it's a good £50 more expensive than the Nexus 7, which is still a tough act to follow. Still, for the extra you get a slightly more powerful processor, a bigger screen and classier bodywork,...

Android tablets are a mixed bag and as much as I love my Nexus 7 it always does seem like a massive phone and my Asus Transformer Prime tablet always seems too big. I’ve wanted to try out an 8″ tablet for a while now and the price of the LG G Pad 8.3...
