LG has impressed of late with its powerful flagship devices, but still needs a hero in the mid-range tablet market. Aiming to do just that is the G Pad 8.0, but does it succeed?
Solidly built; Good battery life; Bright screen
No truly standout feature
All in all, the G Pad 8.0 does not do much to distinguish itself from the competition, but instead offers all the basics you'd expect from a 8" mid-range offering. As such, I can't really find fault with the G Pad 8.0, except to say that it is a tad boring and may lose out to other better specced tablets like the Hisense Sero 8 Pro for example. If the Hisense does not appeal to your sensibilities, and you're looking for a tablet in the lower end of the mid-range market, the G Pad 8.0 will not let you down.
