Super portable with some useful exclusive features and reasonably priced

from TrustedReviews

The G Pad 7.0 is a decent choice if you're seeking portability in a tablet. It's about the size of a book and is therefore easy to slip into your bag. While it maintains parity with the G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 in some respects, the lower internal memory and weaker main camera make it a less appealing prospect, purely when it comes to specifications. To be brutally honest, the 8.0 model is only slightly larger and doesn't cost a great deal more – it's arguably the smarter choice, even if it's not quite as portable...

Feature rich at a fair price

from Pocket-lint

It's hard not to be critical of the LG G Pad 7.0 because it's a notable step down from the excellent G Pad 8.3 model - and not just in size terms. Strip away that aluminium shell, align the resolution to match the lower spec of the Tesco Hudl, and it's a shadow of its more powerful cousin.

But that's a given at the cut-down price point. Search online and you'll find the LG for around £115 which sees it stands shoulder-to-shoulder against its near competitors, such as the Asus MeMo Pad 7...

It's hard not to be critical of the LG G Pad 7.0 because it's a notable step down from the excellent G Pad 8.3 model - and not just in size terms. Strip away that aluminium shell, align the resolution to match the lower spec of the Tesco Hudl, and it's a shadow of its more powerful cousin.

But that's a given at the cut-down price point. Search online and you'll find the LG for around £115 which sees it stands shoulder-to-shoulder against its near competitors, such as the Asus MeMo Pad 7.

Yes, the LG has a sometimes fussy user interface and there's no auto brightness adjustment. However, battery life is great, power is ample and despite a rather bland design we've found single-handed use to be no problems at all. There's also multi-tasking that flies the flag as LG's point of distinction.

The tech connoisseurs among you may well prefer to save up the extra for the much better screen you get with the Nexus 7 of course. It may come down to a preferable feature here or there being the single reason to buy the LG or not.

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.

A supremely simple budget tablet

from Cnet

The LG G Pad 7.0 quietly stands out in the overwhelming sea of budget tablets by keeping things cheap and simple. It doesn't excel at anything in particular; it's supremely mediocre. High-end tablets benefit from zippy processors, pixel-packed screens and an overflow of software features -- things the LG G Pad 7.0 doesn't offer -- but if you only need a tablet for activities like checking e-mail, browsing the Web and playing the occasional mobile game, you don't need those fancy bells and whistles...

The LG G Pad 7.0 quietly stands out in the overwhelming sea of budget tablets by keeping things cheap and simple. It doesn't excel at anything in particular; it's supremely mediocre. High-end tablets benefit from zippy processors, pixel-packed screens and an overflow of software features -- things the LG G Pad 7.0 doesn't offer -- but if you only need a tablet for activities like checking e-mail, browsing the Web and playing the occasional mobile game, you don't need those fancy bells and whistles.

The 7-incher, like its larger counterpart, the LG G Pad 10.1, is a midrange tablet with a low-end price tag. Though the 10-inch model sports the same specs, the G Pad 7.0 wears the 1,280x800-pixel resolution better on its smaller screen and it's a more enticing option in its size category.

Typically, you pay extra for the LTE version of a tablet -- an understandable premium for the ability to access high-speed Web service on the go. You can currently cop the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE, which boasts the benefit of an extra 8GB of internal storage, for the same $150 with a two-year contract or $250 without a contract, or pay installments of $12.50 a month for 20 months.

Budget tablets are a dime a dozen and you can argue that the LG G Pad 7.0 is equally pedestrian. However, for anyone looking into an inexpensive tablet for casual use, $150 for a capable slate is an attractive deal. Just keep in mind, if you're opting for the 8GB Wi-Fi-only version, you'll want to make sure to add a microSD card to your cart.

Vivid screen, excellent audio and epic battery life

from Laptop Magazine

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...

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.

In this price range we prefer the $150 ASUS MemoPad HD 7, which offers much faster Intel Atom performance. Still, the LG G Pad 7.0 is a fine choice if you're looking for a long-lasting 7-inch Android tablet that won't break the bank.

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.

Simple and functional design, fluid and responsive interface

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.

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.

At 7 inches, WXGA screens are still reasonably sharp - the low pixel density isn't as obvious as on 10-inch tablets (of which there're still quite a few around, at or around HD resolution). Great viewing angles and pleasant colors are points in favor of the G Pad 7.0.

Then comes the chipset - Snapdragon 400 is the popular choice for midrange smartphones and is making its way into tablets as well. It's clearly a budget option and, with a single gig of RAM, you cannot expect the G Pad 7.0 to break any speed records. It is by no means a poor performer though - thanks to the optimizations of Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the G Pad 7.0 behaves quite nicely.

If you're shopping for an affordable compact tablet and the Nexus line is hard to get, the G Pad 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 are some of the most obvious choices. Samsung is in its fourth generation now, while LG took a break from the tablet game. Judging by the G Pad 7.0 though you wouldn't tell.
