What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work! I have sent this for repair 3 times and will not send again unless it is in pieces. I am so disappointed with this tablet. I have always had good luck with LG phones in the past, so I thought this would be a good choice. Not so much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad I had a bad feeling about this purchase, and wish I had followed my gut. What a piece of garbage. Use it rarely, and it constantly tells me I'm out of storage space. Apps close down after opening them. Reboot doesn't help, software and apps are up to date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I've been living with this tablet (or rather living without it) for months now. The thing cannot run an app without closing. The store I bought it at recommended a reboot which accomplished nothing. You are supposed to be able to link to smart phone but that doesn't work either. About the only app that will run is Kindle app. I wish I would have just gotten a Kindle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money on this tablet! Continuous closings of apps and keyboard. It's not worth the frustration! I wish i could afford a good tablet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gold star tablet from LG Great features a little slow when attempting to multi task. No problems with taxing apps like Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. The built in styles comes in handy with these apps. Great to have for processing mobile payments too.
