Reviews for the LG G Pad 10.1 V700
Déjà-vu. LG's G Pad 10.1 looks a lot like its smaller brother, the G Pad 8.0. The equipment is almost identical, and the only obvious difference is the larger screen. Again LG opts for limited performance and a long battery life in this case. However, the review sample tends to dim the brightness when it gets too warm.

If you're in the market for a top-of-the-line Android tablet, the G Pad 10.1 is almost certainly going to leave you feeling deflated. It has a decidedly underwhelming processor, a dour design and a low-resolution screen, all of which make it feel second best to leading Android tabs.

There’s nothing wrong with LG’s 10.1 inch G Pad, other than the fact that it really has nothing strong going for it. This isn’t designed in the same image of the light and super-thin Ultra PC we saw earlier in the year, and it’s not cut from the same mould that produced the excellent benchmark setting G3 smartphone either.

10-inch Android tablets have gone quite quiet of late, and it’s good to see a new, affordable model like the LG G Pad 10.1 arrive. However, we’re not sure it has its priorities in the right place. Extras such as NFC, IR transmitters and dual cameras should come below screen quality in the pecking order. And while every other tablet class seems to be obsessed with pixel density, the LG 10.1 display is very low-res.

The highlight of the LG G Pad 10.1 is its epic battery life, which gives this $250 tablet enough endurance to last all day. LG also adds some neat features, such as dual-window multitasking and the QPair smartphone pairing app. While the G Pad's performance isn't blazing, it's in the same ballpark as other 10-inch budget tablets.

The G Pad 10.1 is a far better value than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, but if you're productivity-minded, you'd be wise to check out the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C$288.63 at Amazon, which matches the G Pad in performance, but includes a useful keyboard dock, all for $299. If you want the best tablet experience around and can spend a good deal more, we still recommend the Apple iPad Air$499.00 at Apple Store, our reigning Editors' Choice, while the Galaxy Tab S 10.5Best Price at Amazon is our favorite Android pick.

Going for a 10-inch tablet but not in the mood to splash out? Maybe you just want a big screen to idle the hours away on the couch or you feel your 5" smartphone isn't doing your YouTube feed any justice? The LG G Pad 10.1 has got you covered - it's reasonably priced and an adequate performer. LG isn't making a big fuss over its latest G Pads and that may be a mistake. Perhaps the company fears their less than stellar record with tablets will come back to haunt them, or perhaps the current G Pad lineup is supposed to just fill in the blanks in the lower midrange before an upgrade of the G Pad 8.3 hopefully turns up.

Model: The LG G Pad 10.1 is a beautifully crafted tablet with comfortably curved edges with a clean silhouette and good ergonomics. LG has put some thought behind the design of the device as the thicker side bezel allows users to easily grip the large format screen. The 523 g device comes in black and is nicely textured for extra grip. Sporting a 10.1 inch IPS display panel with 16:10 aspect ratio and HD technology, the LG G Pad 10.1 is an ideal multimedia tablet. The hardware consist of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB DDR2L RAM and 16 GB internal storage.
There is an option to increase internal storage using a microSD card. Audio quality is decent with the internal stereo speakers but do not expect too much out of them. The LG G Pad 10.1 comes with a rear-facing 5 MP camera and a 1.3 MP secondary shooter. Other features include Bluetooth 4.0 BLE and GPS while the entire system is powered by a Lithium Polymer battery rated at 8000 mAh. The LG G Pad 10.1 can run up to 8 hours making it a good bang for the buck tablet.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
