Excellent battery life, some appealing unique features but sluggish performance
Very useful in routine operation
Everyone who picks up LG's G Pad 10.1 for the first time will be surprised just how compact a 10-inch tablet can be. It is nice to hold and provides very good battery runtimes. Additionally, LG's software features are a real added value.
Unfortunately, the screen does not have a particularly high resolution, and the tablet cannot maintain the screen's maximum brightness during permanent load. The latter will restrict using the device in the shade or indoors primarily in the summer. Besides that, it does not have an ambient light sensor. Too bad, since the outstanding Wi-Fi range...

A pretty standard Android tablet with a few bells and whistles
Best feature is its amazing battery life, making this one tablet you shouldn't overlook
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.

Battery life is superb but performance is adequate
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...

A budget buy with style
The LG G Pads are some of the coolest-looking budget tablets available, but their performance isn't as hot. The slick, customization-happy user interface and useful dual-window and universal-remote capabilities slightly help make up for the occasionally sluggish apps and delayed touchscreen response, but there are similarly priced alternatives out there.
If the LG G Pad 7.0's $150 price is in your wheelhouse, the similarly specced and feature-filled Asus Memo Pad 7 is also worth a close look. If you can afford to spend more, the Google Nexus 7 offers faster performance and a bett... Full review
