The LG G Pad II 8.0 LGV498 is a 2015 8-inch tablet that was praised for incorporating new features like a stylus and a full-size USB port, which were not present in LG’s earlier model, the G Pad 8.0 LGV480. Reviewers were happy with the software, particularly the user friendly Optimus interface and unique software tweaks. Also welcomed was Microsoft Office and 100GB of free cloud storage, both of which come with the device. Like its predecessor, the G Pad II 8.0 continues to suffer from average performance and poor display quality. Nonetheless, at a very fair price, it remains a good choice for modest day-to-day usage.
