LG G Pad 8.3 hands-on video
LG is making another attempt at the tablet segment, bringing its new G Pad 8.3 to IFA 2013 to try to build on the buoyant reception to the LG G2. We grabbed some hands-on time with the 8.3-inch tablet to find out whether LG’s promise of “better than HD” resolution and features cribbed from the G2 make sense.
In the hand, it’s not hard to see the relationship with the G2, from the shape at least. However, while the G2 is plastic-bodied, and though the G Pad lacks the useful rear-mounted buttons that the phone gets, we still much prefer the tablet’s brushed aluminum finish. It feels akin to the quality you get with an iPad mini, in fact, and significantly better than, say, the Nexus 7.
