    Guys tingin niyo I should go for this vs the new nexus 7?

    LG pad is overall the best value for money mini tablet against sa nexus. Problem ko lang talaga naglalag daw and masama reputation ni lg for updating their devices to the latest flagship. This or nexus?

    • voltes5 says:

      Definitely Nexus 2013. Easily the best 7″ tablet of 2013. You get the latest android version (no skin, comes with stock android which i think is the best iteration of the OS – no bloatwares)

      Go for Nexus 7 2013. You on’t regret it.

      My smartphone is made by LG and god they are slow in delivering android updates. Stil stuck on version 4.1.

    • wew says:

      mas maganda talaga ang LG kase mas maganda ung specs nya overall…ang problema lng talaga e ung update kasi di pa ganun kabilis magbigay ng update ang LG pero kung wala ka namang pakialam kung maging outdated ang OS mo sa future as long as nagagamit mo p siya,mag LG ka na lng =)

    • fanatic says:

      yeaa in terms of performance ok naman snapdragon 600 naman yan e tas 32gb internal mem na

    android kitkat?

  3. theo says:

    Mabagal update ng LG :-)

    Tulad ng Samsung na bloated ang UI.

    • Diorarat says:

      Mabagal nga eh. Or wala talaga. Tsk really want this pero flagships nga niya like 2x, 4xhd, Optimus g nastuck sa release versions. And to think naka second nexus na siya.

    more like nexus 7 2013 without android updates! LG is the worst android oem in update!

  5. luigi0824 says:

    read this article http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/12/the-checkered-slow-history-of-android-handset-updates/
    the only lg devices that are getting updates are the lg nexus

    The ASUS N7 is plagued with quality control issues.
    Kung Php16,990 online ang SRP niyan siguradong significantly lesser pa yan sa mga online stores (My guesstimate is around Php 14-15k)

    G-Pad for the BETTER build and wider aspect ratio (perfect for pDfs and e-books)

    Tsaka expandable na yung storage niya.

  7. theo says:

    without the trim fn of 4.3 the LG will be laggy…

  8. Bartolo Colon says:

    bakit as per gsmarena e wala namang LTE connectivity to, g pad 8.3 v500 (wifi only lang sya).? tsaka 16gb lang yung internal memory nya. ano ba talaga mga kuya?

  9. theo says:

    16 GB at LTE lang yan

    at 16.9 Thou for the 16 GB model, overpriced nga yan according sa engadget review

  10. theo says:

    Correction: (pakidelete nalang last post ko)
    16 GB at walang LTE lang yan

    at 16.9 Thou for the 16 GB model, overpriced nga yan according sa engadget review

  11. fanatic says:

    yeaah maybe its update is slow but LG have a good quality and durability, with that im fine waiting for its update

  12. veronica says:

    yaah and ive read at a non-tech blog that LG donated $500,000 to yolanda victims, Great quality! great! heart..

    • silver says:

      Yup. LG totally deserves applause cause of their compassion sa mga victims ng yolanda and other from the money nagdonate dn sla ng solar power system na kailangang-kailangan dun..

  13. whatda says:

    well if thats really happening i hope that LG is making up for and doing something about it

  14. kc says:

    Which is better guys,. Im planning to buy a tablet. I couldnt decide kung Samsung note 8 , Google nexus 7 2013 , or Itong LG pAd 8.3 ?.
    Thank you

    • Dioraraat says:

      Seriously, don’t even consider samsung tablet. Just because they make great smartphone doesn’t mean they have great tablets. Screen is quite awful comparable to the ppi of the old ipad mini with worse color and contrast from tft screens. The processors on the nexus and g pad may not be the latest but it’s still newer than the exynos of the note 8.

      Mahirap talaga pagpilian lg and nexus but stay away from the expensive samsung tablets.

  15. silver says:

    im so excited with the LG G pad! i know it’ll fit perfectly with my LG G2..

  16. drigs says:

    Can you use whatsapp with this? I thought whatsapp only works with tablets with phone capability?


    “The LG G Pad 8.3 doesn’t have phone functionality, which is normal for a tablet, but since there are some rare instances that do have such functionality, we wanted to get this out of the way. Naturally, you can’t make phone calls or send texts, but you can still utilize all the internet-based means of communication such as Skype, WhatsApp and so on.”
