What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best tablet I've owned I have had this tablet for almost a year now, and it has been the best tablet I've owned so far. It does run slow at times or just restarts during use every once in a while, but for how long I have had this tablet it's still running like a dream. I'm very happy with it and the current T-Mobile sales price for it is still pretty high valued compared to other tablets that are equally as old as this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First LG tablet and not impressed with it. Laggy, buggy, slow to do simple tasks, not good cameras, one of the great ideas which if it was working good would be excellent but does not work right, it drops the Bluetooth connection shortly after stablished, is the LG Qpair, only used a few months until I got tired of it and it's now just in the junk drawer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my LG tablet! Got this tablet during a promotion with T-Mobile in March of this year. I love it! It's easy to use and has a nice weight to it. I have arthritis and this tablet is easy on my hands. I read alot of books on it, as well as use the internet. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in the USA; no luck in mid-east or Japan I never thought I'd get a tablet but they had a great promotion so I took the plunge. The device works great in the USA (including Hawaii). But it can not seem to find a local data carrier in the middle east or Japan in places where my T-mobile LG phone found a connection instantly. I've spent a few hours on the phone with the T-mobile USA support people and they can't figure it out. All I'm guessing is that the device has limited LTE frequency support, optimized for USA. So - if you want a tablet for USA, get this. If you want it to work while traveling international, get another device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from QPair is NOT available for this device! I just bought this tablet & a V10, thinking I could connect them. Not only does Sharing not work as this GPad, unlike ALL other recent Android devices, has NO NFC support, but also QPair does not come preloaded NOR is there any version of QPair available in the Google Play Store. Google Play says QPair "isn't compatible' with my GPad. Complete waste of time. Additionally, this tablet is horrendously underpowered, I have very few low memory profile apps installed and tons of free memory, but the lag in processing and response are the worst I've seen on any Android device since Android 2.x. Not what I've come to expect from LG at all, and not worthy of the LG brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Joke Got talked into buying this junk at Tmobile and after working 15 hour days back to back, I can't get a refund. My Amazon Kindle fire is faster, louder, and has better video quality. Video quality is terrible. Speeds on lte and wifi are a joke as well
