LG’s new low-cost 7 inch Android tablet is now available in the United States. Newegg is selling the LG G Pad 7.0 for $150, and you can pre-order the tablet from Best Buy.
The G Pad 7.0 features a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a Qaulcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, and Android 4.4 KitKat software.
The tablet is one of three new budget tablets from LG. Models with 8 and 10 inch displays are also on the way.
All three models have the same screen resolution, processor, and share most other specs — but the larger tablets will have bigger batteries, more storage, and higher-resolution cameras as well as bigger screens.
Still, at $149, the cheapest model might be the most attractive since it combines decent (but hardly spectacular) specs with a pretty good price: for the price of a refurbished 2012 Nexus 7 you can buy a brand new LG G Pad 7.0.
The tablet features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4000mAh battery. It has a 3MP rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera.
LG’s larger tablets will feature 5MP rear cameras, 16GB of stroage, and the 8 inch model has a 4200mAh battery while the 10 inch LG G Pad 10.1 has an 8000mAh battery.
I haven’t seen the 8 or 10 inch models in any stores in the US yet.
It is also available on the Newegg website for the same price.
A bigger battery is always needed if the screen is bigger to get consistent battery life across each device. The larger screens require more juice. It’s just simple physics.
This… doesn’t make sense to me. “All three models have the same screen resolution, processor, and share most other specs — but the larger tablets will have bigger batteries, more storage, and higher-resolution screens as well as bigger screens.”
Typo — that shoulda been higher-res cameras
Dell Venue 7 is much better choice for $115.
2 GB RAM, 16GB memory and costs $35 less.
But it has a previous gen Atom, eww…
