 Design and Display

The tablet, G Pad 10.1 measures 260.9 x 165.9 x 8.9 mm by dimensions. The dimensions measure accurately there is no flow in the edges of tablet, so we can say that the tablet is perfectly designed by measures. The slate weighs 523 grams. This weight of the tablet is ideal because of the screen size. It is a bit bigger and not easy to operate by one hand. The tablet is the perfect combination of weight and dimension.

The LG G PAD 10.1 is equipped with IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. The screen measures 10.1. This is quite big. The tablet supports 800 x 1280 pixels resolutions means the handset is equally good in usage and there is no question that the users use the tablet under the shade or in the open area in the bright light. The results come equal in both conditions. In the account of design and display we can say that this is the well balanced tablet from LG.

Software and Users Interface

The tablet runs Android based operating system. The used version is 4.4.2 (KitKat). The new version of Android is also released but the tablet designed before the release of the latest version of android operating system. Might be tablet receives the software updates latter. There is no confirm information available that the tablet comes with the LG’s own designed users interface or not and we can not say anything on this matter before time, but if the tablet supports the full Android interface then that was also not objectionable for the users because the interface is easy to use and consumed the less power to run the applications and everyone can use the operating system without any extra efforts.

Processor and Memory

The tablet is embedded with 1.2 GHz Quad Core Processor. There is no chipset and Adreno combination available in the tablet. The processor is not highly configured like others but it is well enough because the tablet runs the Android operating system which takes less power while working so the processor gives enough speed to the tablet. Company offers 1 GB RAM, however the RAM is not low like Lumia devices but not higher than the other LG’s own or Samsung’s devices. 16 GB on board memory is available in the tablet which can be extended up to 64 GB via memory card there is card slot present in the tablet for insertion of external memory card. This provides good capacity for downloading and running the large game files, movies, books and music according to your mood.


Though, this is the normal range tablet. The slate is equipped with 5 mega pixel rear camera and 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera the camera supports 2592 x 1944 pixels density which means users get the fine images with clear quality, the camera has a auto focus, it sets the image perspective without human intervention and users don’t need to put the extra angle setting approach while capturing the images. Front facing camera based on 1.3 mega pixel density which is enough for video calling or for the live chat.


 The tablet has many good and balanced features, but we cannot neglect the most important feature, the heart of any tablet or smart phone, the battery. The tablet is energized with 8000 mAh battery. There is no doubt that the battery has a good capacity, but we cannot close our eyes from the actual fact. The battery is non removable which is the main draw back of this tablet and affects the popularity. We still do not have any other information like standby time, but it is expected the slate provides enough time to keep the tablet on, but if any mishandling happens with the battery the whole tablet needs replacement and user’s may face the irritation while changing the whole tablet.

Users Expectation

 There are lots of LG lovers present in all over the world and they are waiting to welcome the LG products. We have no doubt that the LG gives the well balanced tablet but unfortunately the tablet has a non removable battery and this is only the cause which may affect the popularity of the tablet among the users.
