Für diejenigen, die sich dunkel an LG's Update-Politik erinnern: das Gerät gibt es auch als Google Play Edition (V510 GPE; diese hier ist V500), dementsprechend gibt es schon Cyanogenmod und andere Custom ROMs, wobei man einschränkend erwähnen muss, dass die Auswahl allerdings nicht sehr groß ist:


seit gestern wird in Deutschland bzw. im deutschsprachigen Raum Android 4.4.2 Kitkat ausgerollt:


Hier mal ein Review von amazon.co.uk, der auch einer der Gründe war, dass ich das Gerät gekauft habe:


The Tablet That Made Me Sell My Nexus 7 2013 : LG G Pad 8.3

My very first touchscreen smartphone was the LG Viewty back in the old days. In some ways i always believed that LG will come back one day with a bang ( even if they lost there dominance in the last few years ). My affair with LG started off when I took the plunge to buy the LG G2 after brilliant reviews online from various tech sites. That phone, which I still own , impressed me so much that I couldn't help Googling LG Products. As a result I found the LG G Pad 8.3 ( I still had the Nexus 7 2013 on me then & I was very happy with it ) & it took me again by surprise. Aluminium back with beautiful build quality on a tablet under £200 & I was like wow. I have owned the G Pad for over a month now so let's find out what else did I find that forced me to sell my Nexus 7

Build Quality ( 5/5 ) :

I own a fourth generation iPad as well so I am fully aware of what quality tablets are in terms of build quality. The G Pad is a very slim tablet for its size. The back is made from Aluminium & plastic but the actual area which comes in contact with your hand is mostly aluminium. The feeling is almost the same as holding an iPad mini in your hands. I was pleasantly surprised how it was clearly superior in build quality to my Nexus 7 which was in my other hand ( not to say that the build quality on Nexus 7 is bad by any means but not premium ). It's the only Android tablet I have ever known ( apart from the recently announced Huawei Media Pad M1 ) which comes close to the build quality of an iPad. The power button & volume rocker have nice feedback to them as well. Tablet also comes equipped with a micro SD card slot which is a bonus as you can expand the limited in built 16GB memory by another 64GB on top. Camera at the back is 5 MP which is more then adequate for casual photography followed by a 1.3 MP front facing camera which is about average for a tablet of this class. The tablet is also equipped with an IR blaster to use the tablet as a universal remote control. Expandable memory & aluminium back casing with premium build quality made me look at my Nexus 7 twice. At this point I was trying hard not to let my Nexus 7 go.

Screen Quality (4.5/5 ) :

It's an IPS LCD Panel with resolution of 1200*1920 & pixel density of 273 ppi. Screen is more then Full HD & there is little to complain here as compared to the other tablets in this budget. Colours are bright & vivid and viewing angles are brilliant as well. When compared to the Nexus 7 screen I did find out that the contrast levels on the G Pad were slightly lower then the ones on the Nexus 7. What I mean to say is that when brightness is turned up on both tablets the Nexus 7 seems to be the brighter tablet. But personally speaking I keep my brightness levels at around 70% and that is more then enough for me before my eye balls pop out and I go blind. In my 6 months with the Nexus 7 I had to constantly bring the brightness levels down as it was hurting me a lot of times specially whilst reading or browsing on the tablet. With the G Pad I can turn it up to 70% or even 80% and the brightness doesn't hurt and you still get a very good quality experience from the screen. I personally think LG has done this purposely to a) reduce the strain on the battery resulting in good battery stamina b) make it a pleasant experience on the users eyes. All in all you will find the screen to be gorgeous and a pleasure to look at whether watching videos or browsing the web.

Performance (4.5/5) :

Presence of a Snapdragon 600 chipset along with a healthy amount of 2GB RAM makes this tablet fly like anything. Performance is smooth & fluid if not perfect. There are some hiccups on the software side of things like slight lag in the widgets section when scrolling around looking for widgets but goes away after a while. Change of orientation from landscape to Portrait mode has slight delay to it but still very manageable. After unboxing my tablet & connecting to my wifi I instantly received an update which certainly helped the performance quiet a bit. Existence of Knock-On feature to turn the screen on/off by double tapping is something I loved ever since I had the G2. It's great to see LG keeping it on the G Pad as well as it just makes your life so much easier. You simply don't have to start looking for the power button when you want to turn your tablet on or off. G Pad comes with Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Beans which is not the latest & greatest version of Android but does the job remarkably nevertheless. KitKat update 4.4.2 is due sometimes in March - April time & I will update my review accordingly. In comparison the Nexus 7 comes with the latest KitKat 4.4.2 version of Android already. To me personally Nexus 7 wins here being a Google device of course but the question you have to ask yourself is - Are you not getting all you want from a tablet even with 4.2.2 Jelly Beans version? Yes I am because my tablet runs smoothly with a very good performance ( if not Nexus 7 equalling ) & decent battery life without any hiccups. I frankly can wait for KitKat as long as the older version is not a hinderance in my day to day use. The story is the same with my LG G2 which is also running the same older version of Android & gives me world class battery life with swift performance as compared to some of my mates who have Galaxy S4's being updated to KitKat resulting in battery drains & performance bugs making the phones nearly unusable. I would rather have LG work on the updates & fork out the bugs before delivering the update to the customers.

Battery Life (5/5 ) :

The G Pad is powered by 4600 mAh battery which is bigger in size then the one on the Nexus 7 ( 3950 mAh ). Battery life on both the tablets is the same from my experience whether you are watching videos or browsing the web. I was able to watch almost 4 full length English films ( approximately averaging 1 hr 30 mins in length ) with 23% battery still left. It's not iPad beating but in the Android world it's on the higher end sides in terms of results. Browsing gives you slightly more time with tablet lasting around 8-8.5 hrs approximately. All these results were very satisfactory & didn't make me think that getting rid of my Nexus 7 would mean giving up on a decent battery life.

Verdict :

I have to admit that selling my Nexus 7 was not an easy decision to make but I eventually did for the following reasons.

1. G Pad gave me the ability to expand my memory up-to 64GB where as Nexus didn't have no such option. Because I download a lot of films & TV Series so it was a big selling point for me. Now I can keep all my latest films plus Episodes of True Blood, Walking Dead,Supernatural & Teenwolf all at the same time without worrying about space.

2. The bigger screen of the G Pad ( 8.3") is definitely a plus & a bargain. Nexus 7 also costs the same with a smaller 7" screen & less premium build. The form factor of the G Pad is still brilliant as it's not wider like the iPad mini where your palm would stretch to hold it in one hand. G Pad easily fits in one hand because of the 16:10 screen ratio. Wicked thinking LG!!

3. Stereo Speakers on the G Pad are the loudest I have heard in a tablet of this class. They are cleverly located at the back of the tablet so that if you are playing a game holding the tablet in both hands they don't get covered as was often the case with Nexus 7. Speakers on Nexus 7 are decent but no where close to the Stereo speakers on the G Pad.

4. USB OTG support a rarity on Nexus devices ( including phones & tablets ) was the final nail in the coffin which totally convinced me to ditch my Nexus 7. It's dead easy to connect your USB Memory stick to your G Pad & transfer data back & forth at your own convenience.

On top of all these above mentioned points i was getting all this feature rich G Pad for the price of a Nexus 7. Some people might disagree to my arguments here for the sake of Nexus 7 & I wouldn't blame them at all if they did. Me personally living with Android over the years have found that Nexus Devices are meant for those people who want no compromise in performance with the most purest of Android experiences. But in saying so you don't get the commercial experience from a consumers perspective whereas your non Nexus device gives you more in terms of day to day use ( like helpful features ) & almost equally appreciable performance.

I have tried to keep my review simple & easy for all ages to understand. Please feel free to ask me anything which you are not sure of. My views are solely based on my own experiences & can differ from others. Thanks for taking the time to read my review & all the best :-)
