Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous It was hard at first but after I got it working. I couldn't put it down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size with plenty of features Replaced a 7 inch lg tablet. I will say that I find this tablet to be the perfect size. Just big enough from the 7 inch so viewing is much more pleasurable. I find this tablet to be much faster than my daughters Smsng Gal Tax. I also have one of those new 9.7 inch tablets from a fruit company and I find myself grabbing this one all the time. The full size USB port is a real bonus. I will warn that after the update to Nougat some of the apps don't work. But give it time and im sure the updates will come and correct this. For the price I think this tablet is a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phablet is FANTASTIC!!!! Owned this phone / tablet YES I said phone since September. I have this tablet synced up to another LG phone product and using AT&T sync have all calls forwarded, and text to this device. I bought the optional keyboard for it and protective case. People are in awe when I am typing and talking and texting all at the same time. How is it I can be this productive. THIS IS A PHABLET. Who need a I-phone, Ipad, I computer/laptop, I don't need that many selfish products with I in it. I have my ANDROID LG with me, for me, LOVES me. Yeah no I in me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Device! Excellent Device compared to Samsung Tab 8.0. Especially with USB-A option that I can connect External Portable Hard Drive and transfer files from and to the Tablet. And expedition for Micro SD Card is also a plus. 1080p resolution look great playing movie files and pictures. Less bloatware then other devices. Fast process for apps and browsing internet is great. Duel speaker sounds good then single speaker. AT&T Contact Sync works great. Battery last very long time even when I watch YouTube for hours at a time. Really easy to use and reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lg gpad x 8 review Got this for work as they were stealing my info and spying on me with their proprietary apps. Works really good on Cricket Wireless. Did not have to have it unlocked from ATT. Has a little lag and occasionally freezes up but so does my iPad. I wish it was 9 inches. 8 is a little small but the 10 was a little to big. Over all i like better than my iPad. I may have gave it a 10 if a little larger. I do not think you will be disappointed.

Just received my tablet, but when I plug it in to charge, nothing happens. Is there supposed to be a light or anything to show me it's working? It also does not start, so I don't know if it's just needing the charge or if there's something else wrong.
