What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved the Stylus more than I ever knew I love the dual ability to answer calls or texts! I love the screen quality! I love beong able to my flash drive! I am sure there are many more items that I am unaware of right now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product Although LG is worldwide it's tablets are at the bottom of the totum pole. I broke the stylus within the first month and have not been able to find a replacement. The Android and security updates are non existent thus I cannot rait it a 0 or that would be my rating for an inferior product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from an unlocked version with 4gb ram would be perfect only flaws, verizon version only, 2 gb ram, mediocre speakers. other than that it's near perfect. newer 8 inch tablet doesn't seem to have the stylus, which I'm using now on the 8.3 and like a lot. this tablet, without verizon and with better speakers and 4 gb ram would be awesome. how about it LG?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features and Screen Size Got this from online purchase from Verizon for a huge dicount It's certified pre owned Verizon is very good with those ones that are pre owned it's a steal I'm so lucky. I don't want to go away from home because I don't want anything to happen to it when I'm gone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Everything I've Owned The LG X8.3 G-Pad For A Few Week's Now. Love The Tablet. It Performs Well For What I Use It For. Only Drawback Would Be The Speaker's. Once Booted, I Was Pleased To Be Updated To Marshmallow 6.0 Since It's A Great OS. Battery Life Is Decent, Compared To Past Tablet's That I've Owned. Screen Layout Is Great, Settings Are Easy To Understand. And Being Able To Use A Micro or Full Size USB Plug In Is A Plus. You Can Even Add A Keyboard or A Mouse If You So Desire. I Wish It Had A Bit More Ram, But I Can Live With It @ 2gigs. As For The Speaker's, Easily Fixed With S Bluetooth Add On or Headphones/Earbuds. Overall, I Would Have Given It A 5* Exception To Speaker Quality & Ram Amount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for Nook HD+ I bought this as a replacement for my Nook. I was skeptical at first, but once I learned how to operate the tablet I am very happy. It is light weight, I can expand the storage with a micro sd card. I can store purchased movies, applications and other files on the SD card. I can export items from the tablet to my Mac/PC via USB plug on the charger. I did purchase a separate photo application to give me what I wanted for storing/sharing my photos. I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 because of email synching. That could be the user (me) not the device.
