    Default Re: LG G Pad 8.3 Hands-On

    Looks like a promising Tablet. Wish the pairing would share data without a share plan. Loving my G2 so it makes this a really tempting tablet. I wish Adonit or Wacom would get their pressure sensitive bluetooth styli to work with Android and it would be a no brainer. I really want a tablet I can sketch and do some artwork on on the go. I know the Galaxy Note series will work and all the third party styli work with iPads but I'd like to have more options. Maybe they'll get around to it some day.

    I have a 64 GB sdxc card for gaming and videos. Works without a hiccup.

    Please provide info on rooting.

    Well my blue line down the right side issue seems to have gone away I used my tablet extensively last night and could not duplicate the issue so for now I am keeping the one I have I am thinking this may be more of an app issue then a hardware issue I still have 12 days left to return it for a replacement if needed.

    If there is anything to this, I''ll be making another move soon. I've seen other references to a LTE version of the G Pad, and this just might be it.

    LG tablet gets Bluetooth certification, could be "Nexus 8"

    There is also the LG-V507L. I think most were speculating that the L stands for LTE.

    An LTE version of the G Pad seems like a good bet. There's really no reason to think that Google is about to release a Nexus 8, although it would be great if they did.

    Default Re: LG G Pad 8.3 Hands-On

    I read another article that points out the type of bluetooth getting certified for the V510 is only supported on Android 4.4 and since an LTE G Pad is highly unlikely to come with a 4.4 build, you could interpret this detail as evidence that the V510 is a Nexus device.

    Anyway, I noticed the blue line on the right side of my screen again last night. It only appeared after I'd been using it for a couple hours and played a couple games. i then put it down for a couple hours and when I came back the line was gone. I still have a week or so to return mine so I'm considering my options. If this is a problem with all units, then swapping for a new one won't help so I might go the N7 route and save 80 bucks or just wait for more concrete N8 evidence.

    That pic was actually confirmed as being altered, what we are looking at is the Nexus 7 folks.

    FYI, the full source code for the G Pad has been released on the LG website. This should improve the chances that we will see some custom ROMs developed.

    Hey,

    I'm really looking at buying this tablet but I have a couple of questions for current owners...

    Is the USB port Slimport compatable?

    What's the wireless like? I'll be mainly using this tab for streaming movies from my NAS. I'm especially interested in the 5GHz N wireless performance?

    Thanks

    Yes, it is reported to be slimport enabled. I have not seen anyone directly verify it though.

    That's great, i'd love to know how strong the WIFi connection is, also what speed it connects. I currently have a 2012 Nexus and the WIFI isn't very good at all.

    Wow, another favorable review. Very short by ZDNet and interestingly they compared the G Pad to it's proper competition and price points.

    LG G Pad 8.3 review: Gorgeous Android tablet and handy smartphone companion | ZDNet

    I appreciate the comments on the premium feel of this tablet. It actually feels more premium than my spousal unit's much more expensive GNote 10.1 plastic tablet (still a great tablet but too much plastic).

    FYI, the LG website actually says that the G Pad uses a Slimport and provides instructions. LG G PAD V500 HDTV CONNECTION.
