Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews I found the build quality to be decent but not premium feeling. The plastic back felt solid but a bit bendy. The display was quite good overall, with nice colors, but I noticed some light bleed in the corners.
- Damir Franc
User Reviews 2 I found the display to be quite nice with good color reproduction and brightness. The laminated IPS panel minimized reflections for a good viewing experience.

LG recently released an updated tablet, the G Pad II 10.1

This mid-range Android slate aims to deliver solid performance and features without breaking the bank. 

After testing the device, it largely accomplishes that goal. But there are definite areas where LG cut corners.

The G Pad II sports a sharp, colorful 1080p display that looks more expensive than it is. 

LG’s bright and playful Android software also runs smoothly, thanks to an older but capable Snapdragon 800 processor

Battery life reaches an impressive 8-plus hours too.

While far from terrible, built quality fails to impress. The plastic back feels somewhat flimsy, attracting fingerprints too easily. 

LG sadly compromised on speakers as well. Sound lacks richness or volume for enjoying music and videos.

On the bright side, LG wisely included expandable storage to supplement the included 16GB

And an optional Bluetooth keyboard smartly props up the tablet like a mini laptop.

Pricing presents the tablet’s Achilles’ heel.But wait for sales knocking the price nearer the $300 mark.

Then its shortcomings glare less brightly next to the lower cost.

In closing, the LG G Pad II 10.1 merits cautious recommendation. Shoppers wanting premium power or polish should look higher up the food chain. 

Those happy with good-enough specs at a fair price will feel rewarded. 

Either way, watching retail prices proves pivotal in finding this middle-child tablet alluring.
