What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tablet After owning many other tablets I've come to love this one the most. Love the Qpair, Qslide features and battery life. This is my second LG product I've bought and so far I'm very pleased with the brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tablet! I love the feature set of this device! For US $250 its the best in its price range! The USB 2.0 type A can be used with a KB & Mouse (But always use a USB Hub for your peripherals, especially gaming peripherals) And i love the amount of ram in it, and the APU (Take note, half of the cpu cores are disabled, only root users can change it, same as Vulcan) not too overpowering for whats necessary, playing games is not bad, and has barely any lag at all. Although, it has very little storage, which can be fixed with an sd card, but only some apps and games support it, plus you have to enable force apps to sdcard in dev options to enable it. Otherwise its a great tablet!

How do you unlock it when frozen

Asked by: Drainbusters
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this tablet. If the device appears frozen, then it would be recommended to hold down the POWER button for about 5-10 seconds, until the device deactivates. Once it is off, allow it to sit for about a minute before attempting reactivation. Once restarted, if the device continues to have difficulty, then it would be recommended to contact our Wireless Customer Interactive Center at 800-793-8896 for additional troubleshooting.
