What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great evrything! Great Tablet! got this to replace my aging Nook Color. This is so fast, stable, and lite in comparison. Also has a larger screen yet fit in the same case as I had the nook. Can also do so much more with it.. Very Very happy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its not a pro version, but it is!! I have now had this tablet for five months, and i am loving it, i do a lot of blogging/typing and this tablet has now replaced my laptop, i don't even use my laptop anymore, Whats it like to use? Well here is what i love 1. The knock code to wake up the device is really cool (basically you just tap the screen and it wakes up!) 2. Its fast. Its not sticky at all. 3. The battery life is amazing, 4. Size is very comfortable to hold. 5. Its not just standard android, lg have tweaked this android so its much nicer to look at and use, for example the settings menu looks very much like the ipad all and all its very neat looking inside, Points to rember 1. The 8 inch is not a common size so rember to order a cover too, since you probably won't find one at your local store 2. This is one of there older tablets, so if you can i would look at the newer ones, lg really seems to work hard on putting out quality, if i had the moola i would definitely have brought the newer one, But all in all really a good buy and i would say buy it, its feels like a professional device all round

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tablet value This tablet is an excellent value at its price point. The power management and battery life are very good, much better than I expected. The knock code wake-up feature is nice. I am getting used to the LGUI which is not nearly as quirky as I expected it to be. Sure, there are some compromises. If you have to have more specs for a specific application, choose a different product. This tablet, however, is a good choice for a general purpose device.

The features are unique and convenient at the same time, like the knock code the Qpair and Qslide apps come in very handy as a student and in regular activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time getting a LG All my electronics are android and my cell phone is samsung. I didn't think much of the tablet when I got it, but I see myself using it more often now appose to my laptop. I also would like to save my battery on my cell phone so I end up using this tablet. Speed wise pretty good. Just need to buy a memory chip. Features are easy to use and learn as I go. Camera and WiFi features are great for any occasion. Battery life is better than I thought it would be. Transferring files from clouds or just checking emails are at ease. Great product.
