Absolutely Amazing! All Pro's no Con's
Ok,first off I ended up buying this from another site but wanted to tell people about how great it is and don't let the higher price make you buy a lesser tablet. This thing is incredible. Super fast with a flawless interface. Well worth it. I'm an HTC diehard that always hoped they would get in e tablet game. Since they didn't I looked around at the Nexus, Samsung Galaxy 8.0 and the Ipad. They dont even come close to this table. This thing is fully customizable and is drowning in very useful features like Slide aside, Q slide, quick memo, double tap to wake screen and turn off. I can't believe how much I love that feature. And so much more. It is crazy fast and apps open lightning quick and even download and update super fast. I run Norton on here and it scans all apps before install and it's still way faster than my phone and even my laptop. Screen is gorgeous and plays videos great with great sound coming from the dual speakers. Screen is a little dark when playing videos but you just drag down the notification screen to quickly adjust brightness and volume and youre good to go. SD card slot is an awesome inexpensive way to up your storage. One downside is you can't move apps to it. But I think that's not Lg's fault, it's probably the operating system Jelly Bean. I hearthis getting Kit Kat soon so maybe they'll address this issue. Still it's great to load all your music on or pictures, videos etc... The 16gb on board is really plenty for your apps unless you have many storage thirsty game apps. Can't say enough good things about this tablet. Set up was a breeze and as soon as I signed into Google it took all my contacts and apps and settings off my phone and put them on the tablet. In less than 10 minutes I was up and running. Battery life is amazing. Play on it all day, mix of social media, youtube, internet on and off throughout the day and it last me about 12-13 hours. Use it lighty i get 2 days out of it. Charges very fast too. I love this thing so much I'm upgrading to the LG G2 smartphone. I was saving my upgrade for the HTC One or its succesor (my son has the One and its amazing) but now I want the LG phone. I'm totally hooked on this company now. I cannot believe this phone doesn't get kore press. Hardly anyone knows about it. It's the best kept secret in Android tablets. It deserves way more praise. No other tablet can touch this. The ipad with retina display is close but only in screen, nothing else. LG gpad destroys in all other catagories. Get this you'll will jot be disappointed. Also check out the LG G2 phone too. I'ts even faster than the tablet with all the same features. Bravo LG bravo!

Absolutely love it.....
Size is perfect. The small bezels keep the overall size down allowing the screen to be the center of attention. Good overall sound. Very thin and light. Aluminum back keeps it cool to the touch and a sturdy build. Knock-on/off feature is a nice adaptation and saves that power button. On-screen nav buttons can be personalized. Overall a great product that has finally made me put my Galaxy S4 down!

An average tablet with an above average price.
I really wanted to like this tablet. But at the end of the day, I found that it has some issues and I think it's priced about $100 too high.
The #1 issue with this tablet is the screen quality...perfect size and a good resolution but the screen is very dim and displays colors too warm. Reading a book on Kindle your pages will be either a dull gray or a dingy yellow--depending on the brightness. You can't get the pad to be bright enough, not sure if LG limited that to save on battery or what.
The LG version of Android is one of those cases where it would have been good to just leave Android mostly alone--like the Nexus 7. There are a few decent features like QPair and Knock On, but overall the LG skin is an ugly disappointment.
Wifi performance was not good for me. Tablet worked ok in my house, would sometimes drop connection. However, in hotel rooms it could not keep a connection at all while my phone and laptop had no problem and showed very good signals.
Finally, the thing that made me return the tablet was the way it was built. I didn't like the smooth metal back (very slippery to hold) and the sides of the tablet were not flat, but angled in such a way that it felt like it was "biting" into my fingers after only about 10 minutes of single handed operation. The metal back also means it is guaranteed to slide off of anything you place it on. However, this may not be an issue if you put a case on it. I don't like the extra bulk a case adds to the thickness of my tablets.
Bottom line is it's an average tablet and should be priced closer to the Nexus 7. Otherwise the Samsung PRO 8.4 is a much better tablet for only $50 more.

easy to use
Haven't used a lot but we like it so far. We were looking a getting a new laptop and decided a tablet would do everything we needed.
