LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet hands-on

The new LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet is portable enough to keep with you when mobile and a little bigger than the iPad mini. Featuring both an 8.3-inch display and 8.3mm thick form factor that weights in at just 338g.

Today, we have an LG G Pad 8.3 hands-on video for Product Reviews readers to watch that runs for just over 5 minutes. You can see this video above on this page and it was taken at the IFA conference in Berlin this week.

In the visual review you can see the new LG G2 phone next to the LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet, so this is interesting if you want to see how both devices compare in size while hands-on.

The new LG G Pad 8.3 tablet is powered by Android 4.2.2, so this won’t please those that would rather pick up the tablet with Android 4.3 installed instead of waiting for an update to release.

You will notice a number of features that LG has preinstalled to create a custom user experience. The first you might notice is QPair, which allows Android phone owners to connect this tablet to their smartphone via Bluetooth.

QPair delivers a number of features including the ability to answer phone calls on your tablet once connected to an Android phone, and also syncing notes between devices is easy with a memo app.

Would the LG G Pad 8.3 be one of your favorite choices for an Android tablet? Take a look at the hands-on video above this article and then share a comment below with your thoughts on LG’s latest tablet.
