Abans have just unveiled the LG G Pad 8.0 LTE, an affordable and feature packed Android Tablet which is setting a higher standard for connectivity in emerging 4G markets to satisfy consumer demand for speed and convenience wherever they are.
In the realm of Android, smaller 8-inch tablets are fast becoming the norm, with this particular screen size seeming to strike the perfect balance between portability, functionality and affordability. The LG G Pad 8.0 has this sector covered perfectly, presenting a tablet that is practical as well as appealing.
The rear of the G Pad 8.0 is made of matte-effect plastic, which is comfortable to grip, and apart from the camera lens and two speaker grilles, it’s plain and uncongested. On the left-hand side is the power button and volume control, while the top edge is home to 3.5mm headphone socket, IR Blaster and microSD card slot. The bottom edge is reserved solely for the Micro USB port.
The LG G Pad 8.0 tablets 8-inch screen has a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels, which delivers a pixel density of 189 ppi. The IPS panel is bright and colourful and affords excellent viewing angles with the protection of scratch resistant corning gorilla glass 3.0.
LG has been remarkably restrained by not adding too much bloat ware on its G Pad 8.0 each of which ships with Android 4.4.2 (upgradable to android 5.0 Lollipop) and powered by quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon CPU. Some welcome unique features, such as Knock Code – which allows you to unlock the device by simply tapping a sequence on the touch screen, even when the display is powered down – make the LG G Pad 8.0 stand out from its Android rivals. Another nice element is the ability to run two applications in tandem, side by side.
Q Pair is an app which is unique to LG Tablets, which allows you to link your phone to the G Pad in order to receive notifications such as text messages. This saves you the hassle of reaching for your handset when you are using your tablet, and is one of those truly impressive little features that should be present in every device of this type. Quick Remote is a feature which works with the tablets built-in blaster and enables you to control your TV, DVD or Blu-ray player without having to search all over the room for the remote.
Another, unique feature is that it is possible to uninstall some of the pre-loaded applications on the G Pad 8.0 which you don’t really need, and free more space for other downloads.
The amazing LG G Pad 8.0 is very affordably priced and is available exclusively from Abans Showrooms and authorized dealers Islandwide.
