    The back is brushed aluminum and feels nice. The device feels rock solid.

    Is Gorilla Glass used? If so, GG, GG2, or GG3?

    Yes.
    So, was that "yes" to the Gorilla Glass? None of the specs I've seen mentioned GG, so I assumed that it does not use it.

    I read on-line that it is GG, but there is nothing in the box indicating that this is true.

    For anyone considering one of these, it just like the G2, but larger. Even the knock-knock. I love it!

    What else is like the G2? I know QRemote and SlideAside but how about customizing the bottom buttons?

    All the same, just no buttons on the back.

    QRemote is extremely limited. Only a handful of TV brands. Samsung's has much more TV support.

    That may be true however on the G2 you can create your own remote and train it as long as you have the original remote available. I had to do that and it works well.

    It's a very good review and goes into a lot of detail.

    Also, those that have the G Pad, why not post some good photos so we can see what the goodness you've got looks like?

    I had to make a choice between the G Pad and the Note 8.0 for work. I got the Note 8 because of the S-Pen. I'll be selling my Nexus 7.

    That's funny. I sold my Note 8 for the G Pad.

    I had no substantial uses for the S-Pen personally. I tried to take handwritten notes with it at meetings but my handwriting is so poor is was pretty illegible. Typing for me is a lot easier on these smaller tablets (in portrait) as I have large hands.

    Note 8 has some cool features. Hope you like it.

    Thanks, this one's primarily for work. I have a Note 10.1 I use for home. I'm able to share the Notes from the Note 8 with my Npte 3 and Note 10.1, which was a contributing factor too.

    Note 8.0

    Never used the first generation Nexus. Have the second one though. This screen is on the same level as the second generation..bright! I keep it at 90% and at night it can light up my bedroom.

    How is the brightness compared to the G2? I got the G2 on release day and love it so thinking of getting the G Pad, everybody but me in my family has a tablet.

    Lots of Notes! What app do you use for notes/word/xcel?

    The G Pad will be my new work device to replace my ipad 3 and i already downloaded quickoffice and polaris on my LG OG for my Word and Excel editing needs. Didn't consider the Note 8 honestly. No good reason except price i think. Any advantages you see versus the G Pad besides the S Pen and note streaming?

    I use the S-Notes app that is built into the Galaxy Note line of devices. It's geared towards the handwriting capabilities provided by the S-Pen. So I can take handwritten notes and share them amongst the 3 devices.

    Note 8.0

    I have a fairly new Nexus 7 (2013) that I like just fine, but after I bought the Nexus I started using a LG G2 as my phone. I like the LG so much that as soon as my Bill Me Later account is back down to zero I'm buying a white G Pad!!. The G2 is the best phone I have ever owned!!
