If the Nexus 7
is too small and an iPad mini Retina
is a little out of the price range, the LG G Pad 8.3
is the affordable Android alternative.
Available in white or the much nicer looking black shade, the aluminium and plastic body strikes a good balance between portability and screen size making it comfortable to use in one hand. Although the screen resolution is not the best avilable on a portable tablet, it’s still fairly sharp and provides solid viewing angles to for watching high resolution video.
It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean so it’s not the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system and is layered with LG’s usual custom interface. It doesn’t have a cutting-edge processor but along with the 2GB of RAM does muster up a good performance handling 3D games with ease and manages a Nexus 7-matching six hours of battery life.
While you do have to make some spec compromises, this £200 tablet is one of the best value tablets to own right now.Price
