Excellent battery life, some appealing unique features but sluggish performance

from TrustedReviews

Budget in price and budget in nature, the G Pad 10.1 is sorely lacking when compared to many other Android tablets, but the low price makes it worth a look if you're after big display for little outlay.

Very useful in routine operation

from Notebookcheck

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 would have predestined using the tablet in the garden. We make deductions for these technical drawbacks...

The SoC is no longer a high-performance model. Users who like playing graphically demanding games should avoid the tablet. Casual gamers will be satisfied with the performance. HD videos are also rendered smoothly. Also, the tablet will not be a mistake for everyone who wants to mainly use the tablet for communication and media playback purposes at home.

A pretty standard Android tablet with a few bells and whistles

from IntoMobile

Simply put, for $249 the G Pad is a great value, delivering a solid user experience in a slightly underwhelming physical package. If you’re looking for an Android tablet that is a little modest and won’t break the bank, the LG G Pad is the guy for you.

Best feature is its amazing battery life, making this one tablet you shouldn't overlook

from Laptop Magazine

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...

People looking for an affordable Android slate have other options, including the Lenovo A10, which offers a richer display. However, those who constantly complain about their tablet running out of juice will love the near 14-hour battery life of the LG G Pad 10.1.

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 of the G Pad 8.3 hopefully turns up...

Not that LG should be shouting from the tallest of rooftops about the G Pad 10.1. It's not exactly rocking the most impressive of specs. To be fair though, the LG G Pad 10.1 proved, there goes that word again, adequate all around. The screen is keeping it in 2012 but there's enough to turn a bad rap around - KitKat for starters, extra-solid battery backup and an IR blaster if you will. KnockCode and some other proprietary software features are also worthwhile. Snapdragon 400 will do for browsing or light gaming and the price is right.

A budget buy with style

from Cnet

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...

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 better screen for only $70 more.

The 10-inch LG G Pad offers a slightly better deal, starting at only $250. That's $50 less than the average $300 price of a large tablet; if you don't mind the pixelated screen, it's a nice, portable option. There's another Asus model that features a sharper, more colorful screen and equally comfortable build, but you'll be sacrificing the good looks dual-window capabilities of the G Pad 10.1.

Still, even though the budget tablet scene is packed to the brim with options, the LG G Pads are welcome additions to the crowd. Ultimately, they will satisfy the casual user who doesn't need a slate for consuming media as much as casual Web browsing or simple gaming, and their comfortable designs and affordable pricing make a compelling case for bargain shoppers.
