The LG G Pad 7.0 is not the kind of tablet that’s going to get pulses racing. It’s a low-cost device, and there are signs of that, particularly in its screen. However, it also gets you a bunch of features not often seen in smaller tablets. The IR transmitter gives it lounge skills missing from the Nexus 7, multi-tasking is given a lot of promotion for a tablet this small and it can pair with your phone for extra notifications juice.

The G Pad 7.0 is a solid enough tablet product, but simultaneously feels like a disappointment compared to last year's G Pad success. It's not going to steal the Nexus 7 crown by any means, but that's to compare it against the wrong rank. In the world of Asus MeMo Pad 7 and Tesco Hudl the LG G Pad 7.0 holds its own. It's a solid product that would make a decent coffee-table tablet for the whole family.

The LG G Pad 7.0 makes a few compromises to achieve its low price, but overall it's a pretty good bargain. The tablet boasts a vivid 1280 x 800 screen, outstanding audio quality and epic battery life, all for the very reasonable cost of $150. However, LG did make some trade-offs to hit this budget price: Photos and videos look grainy and washed out, and the tablet delivers middling performance compared with other 7-inch slates.

The LG G Pad 7.0 doesn't do a lot to stand out from the crowded field of small-screen tablets, but some unique and useful software features coupled with an aggressive price give it a leg up on competitors. Spec for spec, it's the Galaxy Tab 4's equal, but Samsung charges $50 more, and I'd argue LG's software execution is superior. The G Pad 7.0 offers great value if you can deal with relatively modest performance and a simply average display. Our Editors' Choice for small screen tablets remains the Google Nexus 7, which has a sharper full HD panel and stock Android experience with guaranteed timely updates.

LG G Pad 7.0 review: Back at it
Source: GSM Arena English
Any way you look at the G Pad 7.0 it's hard to find much to frown at. Not much to get excited about either - after all the Nexus 7 had the exact same specs two years ago. 7-inchers have since been trying to beat Google's price without making too much compromise. Well, they're finally getting there. HD resolution on a 7" diagonal is the new entry level in tablets, at still a safe distance from Apple and with no dime-a-dozen WSVGA devices from white label manufacturers crowding the space. If you're shopping for your first tablet, the LG G Pad 7.0 is very much an option but so are a bunch of tablets from of Samsung, Acer, Asus and Huawei.

Comment

Model:

LG is getting into the tablet game with a few different tablets. Their G Pad 7.0 is the smallest of their current line and is targeted towards the budget-conscious consumer. It sports a 7-inch IPS display with a native resolution of 1280 x 800. The resolution is nothing to shout about but it won't look too bad on a 7-inch screen. The IPS technologie ensures good viewing angles and nice colors.

The tablet is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and 1 GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 400 chipset provides solid enough performance for normal use. The lack of RAM doesn't help with multitasking, but normal web browsing and standard apps run well enough. However, running high-quality 3D games are not possible.

The LG comes with 8 GB of storage, not much but manageable. The camera options are 3.15 MP for the rear and 1.3 MP for the front. The Optimus UI's signature feature, knocking to unlock, is available here. While the LG G Pad 7.0 is not going to blow any of its competition out of the water, it's a very affordable option to consider.

Qualcomm Adreno 305: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 400 and S4 Plus SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.293 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
