Reviews for the LG G Pad 8.0 V480

84% LG G Pad 8.0 V480 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Chicken-breasted long-distance runner. LG offers an 8-inch tablet for less than 200 Euros (~$254) that has an excellent battery life dubbed G Pad 8.0. However, the runtimes are at the expense of having a weak SoC, which is usually found in entry-level smartphones, among other things. Nevertheless, Android 4.4 KitKat and known software features from LG help make the tablet an interesting product.
70% LG G Pad 8.0 review

Like its larger sibling, the G Pad 10.1, the G Pad 8.0 has been forced to endure some compromises in order to hit its impressively low price point. The sluggish Snapdragon 400 chipset often struggles to keep up, and the overall experience is generally skittish.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.
