MANILA, Nov. 19, 2013 – The tablet that CNet praises for its “zippy performance, expandable memory, and crystal-clear screen” and Stuff Magazine calls an “unexpected gadget champ” is set to hit Philippine stores by the last week of November 2013.

Riding on the success of the much-awarded smartphone LG G2, the LG G Pad 8.3 is the first tablet created under LG’s premium G Series and was immediately well-received by the global market. According to a review by Android Central, the LG G Pad 8.3 is “fast,… capable, and… powerful” and “one of smoothest experiences I have ever had on an Android tablet, period”. 

Stunning Display and Smart Design

It sports an 8.3-inch Full HD IPS Display that lets the user indulge in sharp and clear imagery, high resolution, and true-to-life colors and details.  Its huge and expansive screen stretches all the way to its slim bezel.  The tablet’s size still allows pocket-sized portability and has a narrow 126.5mm width for a comfortable one-handed grip.  Designed to maximize both viewing and listening experience, the G Pad 8.3 has dual rear speakers on the back for enhanced volume and sound quality.

Speedy Performance and Intuitive UX

The speedy performance of the LG G Pad 8.3 is because of its advanced 1.7 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon Processor, specifically designed for multitasking efficiency. Powered by its WiFi feature, the user can download music, stream videos, check social networks, and browse the web all at once without lag.  And with the device’s powerful 4,600 mAh battery, the activities can go on all day and night.

It also carries a range of user experience functions ideal for one’s day-to-day tasks.  Useful features found in the LG G2 such as QSlide, Slide Aside, QuickRemote, and KnockON were maintained.  Enhancing the G Pad are fresh features such as Life Square, which creates an integrated journal through a single click of photos, texts, videos, calendar events, Facebook posts, and tweets; and Guest Mode, but this time with Multi-User Function, which allows eight different people to use the G Pad through different codes which gain access to their own private and personalized apps.

Seamless Connectivity

“Most exciting, though,” Android Central furthered, “is LG’s QPair, an overdue piece of functionality that single handedly changes how an Android tablet integrates into your life.”  With the QPair, the LG G Pad 8.3 connects and syncs Android devices to itself with utmost practicality and convenience through Bluetooth technology. The G Pad can alert the user when he receives a call or message on his paired smartphone; the user can even reply directly to the message on the G Pad. With the same connection, the G Pad can also receive pop-up alerts of the most recent apps used on the paired smartphone. Furthermore, the G Pad can acquire Internet via Phone, transfer QuickMemo notes from itself to the phone, and even stream music and videos wirelessly from the tablet to a TV or other devices through SmartShare.

Local Price Point

Locally, the LG G Pad 8.3 will retail for P16,990. At its price point, the LG G Pad 8.3 will be the only tablet to feature a Full HD display and quad-core processor.

Soon on Smart Bro

According to Smart, the Smart Bro bundle with the LG G Pad 8.3 will be announced and released by early December 2013.
