The LG G Pad 8.3 tablet, which will be available in key mobile markets including North America, Europe and Asia in the fourth quarter of 2013, comes without innovative features.
Considering the specifications mentioned in the official statement, LG G Pad 8.3 tablet lacks new things. It is a complete disaster.
With the new tablet, LG is also joining Samsung, Nokia, Apple, etc which did not innovate their phones significantly in the recent past. These device makers kept on launching new variants without innovative much. Their main value addition was in upgraded processor or battery.
LG G Pad 8.3 tablet may not be a slim tablet. But LG G Pad 8.3 tablet weighs 338 gram. LG claims the new tablet, which features a powerful 4600mAh battery for long-lasting usage time, is as light as a newspaper. I do not consider this as a major innovation.
LG’s promise is that you can hold in one hand. It seems its rival products are too heavy. We get notebooks and tablets which can be managed with one hand.
The 8-inch tablet features a Full HD display. Is it an innovation? In the recent past, several Indian tablet makers introduced cost effective HD tablets.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Processor with 1.7GHz Quad-Core CPU enhances the viewing experience. Viewer experience will also depend on telecom operator’s 3G or mobile Internet if one user is viewing something on the Internet.
LG G Pad 8.3 tablet’s QPair app improves connectivity between multiple devices. This seems to be an innovative one.
With the QPair app, every call and message received on a smartphone will appear on the G Pad for better convergence experience. Users can then send simple replies through the LG G Pad 8.3.
QPair also allows the G Pad to connect to other manufacturers’ smartphone and tablets (Jelly Bean OS recommended). Notes created on the G Pad’s QMemo can be seamlessly saved into users’ smartphones and shared from either device.
The LG G Pad 8.3 offers practical features that provide real-life benefits, such as enhanced multitasking. Canvas 4 from India’s Micromax and Lenovo K900 from China’s Lenovo offer these features.
Slide Aside enables seamless multitasking by sliding currently open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe.
QSlide controls up to three different apps in one window with no interruption, especially convenient on a large screen.
KnockON turns the device on and off by tapping the display twice.
