User Reviews 1 User Reviews We were impressed by the brilliant 8.9-inch 3D-capable display. The front-facing 2-megapixel camera adds a nice touch for video calls. Running on the Honeycomb Android 3.0 operating system, it's user-friendly.
The rear-facing stereoscopic 3D video recorder offers flexibility with the option of 3D or full 1080p HD video capture. The 5-megapixel camera with digital zoom and LED flash ensures sharp and well-lit photos.
Connectivity options like HDMI output and micro USB port connectors make it versatile. The docking station, charging port, and 3.5mm headset jack provide convenience. The power and lock button are well-placed.
User Reviews 2 The video call camera is oddly placed, but it fits well in portrait mode. Volume buttons are at the back, unconventional but cool in portrait mode. Port placements are standard.
Now, the camera. Dual 5-megapixel cameras, 3D camcorder, and various modes. But does it impress? Not really. Video playback? Solid. Audio? Good volume and quality. Browser experience? Smooth scrolling and pinch to zoom.

Our Rating

The overall rating is based on review by our dedicated team and users.

  • Performance 7 / 10
  • Display 8 / 10
  • Battery 8 / 10
  • Design 7 / 10

In the tablet arena, where innovation is the name of the game, the LG Optimus Pad LTE made its debut in Q4 of 2012, boasting an 8.9-inch 3D-capable display that left us genuinely impressed. This device, though discontinued, still carries a legacy worth exploring.

Display and Design: A Visual Delight

The star of the show is undoubtedly the 8.9-inch display, showcasing 3D capabilities that set it apart. With a vibrant 1280×768 pixels resolution, the visuals pop, delivering a premium viewing experience.

The sleek dimensions of 245 x 151.4 x 9.3 mm and a weight of 497g make it a comfortable hold, though the absence of display protection is a notable miss.

Cameras: A Mixed Bag

The front-facing 2-megapixel camera adds a nice touch for video calls, enhancing the tablet's versatility.

On the flip side, the rear-facing 8-megapixel camera, equipped with digital zoom and LED flash, falls short of wowing us. While the 3D video recording option sounds exciting, it's more of a fun addition than a game-changer.

Performance: Power-packed and User-friendly

Running on the Honeycomb Android 3.2 operating system, the tablet proves to be user-friendly. The 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor ensures smooth multitasking and gaming experiences.

Adobe Flash support elevates web browsing, complemented by the pinch zoom capabilities.

Connectivity: Versatile and Convenient

Connectivity options include HDMI output and a micro USB port, adding versatility to the tablet. The well-placed docking station, charging port, and 3.5mm headset jack contribute to the overall convenience.

However, the absence of USB or memory card slots poses a limitation for content transfer.

Battery Life and Storage: Commendable

The tablet's battery life is commendable, offering up to 10 hours of video playback. With a substantial 32GB internal memory, storage concerns are kept at bay.

The built-in gyroscope and accelerometer further enhance the tablet's performance, making it a reliable choice for mobile HD entertainment.

Conclusion: A Tablet of Many Facets

In conclusion, the LG Optimus Pad LTE is a tablet of many facets. From its brilliant 3D display to the robust performance powered by a dual-core processor, it offers a compelling package.

However, the lackluster rear camera, coupled with the hefty price tag, makes it a niche choice rather than a mainstream contender.

If you're captivated by 3D capabilities and willing to overlook a few shortcomings, the Optimus Pad LTE might just be the tablet for you.
