The LG G Pad 8.3 is a 2014 tablet praised for its sharp screen, fast performance, attractive design and value for money. Its frame is made of a mix of aluminum and plastic which makes it feel great in your hands; the metal also makes it firm and sturdy. Users loved that it kept compact and light even with the added strength, making it easy and comfortable to hold. The screen is sharp with wide viewing angles, the stereo speakers are loud and clear, processing power is in abundance and its battery life is solid. Apart from no cellular connectivity, and a poor camera, which seems to be the norm for tablets, the LG G Pad 8.3 ticks a lot of the right boxes, and it is very hard to say anything negative about it.

    With a metal body, full HD display and decent innards the G Pad 8.3 is strongest rival to the iPad mini 2. While battery life could be better LG's tablet doesn't let the side down.
