What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It, Love It, LOVE IT!!!! I tend to be brand loyal. I own an LG smartphone (love it) and an ASUS computer (love it too). So I went back and forth on which brand of tablet to buy. I decided to go with LG and man oh man am I happy! This baby rocks! It's compact, fast, and I think the screen rivals the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy products for a much lower price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tablet replacement from Nexus 7 I love this tablet even though I loved my Nexus 7. This year I had to replace my Nexus 7 and the LG G Pad works great. After researching other tablets the LG G Pad took 1st place and for the great price. All I can say is that I really love my tablet hate they do not sell it in the store anymore because I had a friend that was looking to get one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb tablet and amazing value I finally retired my aging Nexus 7 (2012) tablet, and after much research and reading reviews, chose this LG gpad. I made the right choice, it's a high quality device that is a pleasure to use. The screen is sharp and clear, and very easy on the eyes. The size is perfect, not too small, not too big. It is also well made - I accidently dropped a heavy object on one part of the screen, and then noticed dead spots in that area of the screen. I then tried turning it off and on, and after a restart, the dead spots were gone, and it was as good as new. Very impressed by this device, and it is selling at a very cheap price these days. When LG releases an updated version of this tablet, I will be a customer again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life is Good with this Tablet After a great deal of research...I chose what I have found to be an excellent Tablet in the LG G-Pad 8.3. The overall features and value are outstanding. A very solid feel, you can tell by the fit and feel this is a top quality device. I could have paid twice as much for basically the same features in a "different" named Tablet, yet I am glad I chose LG. Part of my initial focus in purchasing this Tablet was my pleasure and problem free service with my last two LG cell phones. Try this LG Tablet, you will be pleased and try shopping with B&H Photo Video as they have excellent pricing and service. Thanks LG !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my LG G Pad 8.3 My LG G Pad 8.3 does everything I want it to do. It is very well made, has great video and is very fast for my needs. I like the way it works in conjunction with my LG smartphone, lets me know when I get a phone call and allows me to answer Text messages that I have received from the phone. I also like the ability to use a micro SD card for storage. I have a 64gb card installed with all my music, picture and videos. The 8.3 screen size is almost perfect, to to big and not to small. The screen resolution looks great when watching online videos from Hulu and Netflix. The versatility of the tablet lets me do almost everything I need to do, and many things I never thought of before I owned this tablet. I'm finding new uses every day. I find the battery life is good for my normal daily use. I charge my tablet every night at bed time and it always lasts me through the next following day. I highly recommend the LG G Pad 8.3 to all my friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Tablet Than Those Costing Twice As Much Had another brand name tablet that cost me twice as much, and I have to say I am happier with my LG G Pad 8.3. It is the perfect size, easy to setup and use, and works perfectly with my LG G2 phone. The Q Pair feature is nice when I am working and can't answer my phone but I can see who has called or that someone has called. Nice tablet LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tablet With some but's The tablet is solid, good hardware and very nice look, the performance is great, but can be better. Pros: Nice look Good performance Excelente price Solid configuration Contracts: Awful LG android layer Nothing about the android updates Awful preload apps The tab is great but could be better if LG use the Google stock android or a version without preload unuseful apps.

Do you have cheap tablet phone combinations

Asked by: StrawberryBubbleybubbles
Even though we have a few tablets that feature 3G or LTE connectivity, they don’t offer phone capabilities. The LG G Pad 8.3 Black, Model # V500, like most of our other tablets comes with the Q Pair™ feature that is compatible with phones running android 4.1 or later and Q Pair application installation from Google Play Store is required on your phone. That feature links to your Android® smartphone so call, message, memo, and other notifications can be used between both, or when paired, allows you to conveniently locate misplaced devices with the press of a button.*. Some functionality might be limited depending on your phone...^IFV
