Manufacturers have significantly minimized their tablets to the least possible numbers yet LG has launched the new LG G Pad IV.
The specifications are decent and the pricing should make most buyers interested in going for it if they are interested in having a multimedia device for YouTube, internet browsing.
The LG G Pad III was the one that got launched last year and witnessed a decent outing among tablet lovers. At the moment, you can most probably go for an Apple iPad Mini or Air while Google’s Nexus 7, Nexus 10 continues to be the most popular Android tablets in the offering. Samsung and LG continue to launch one or the other at regular intervals to keep the market consistent. The newest LG G Pad IV is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor. The 1.4 GHz CPU is more than enough if you are simply going to play games, watch Youtube and browse the web on the tablet.
The 2GB of RAM used in the device seems like a bad choice as it will instantly bottleneck the overall performance. Even though, LG has made a conscious choice by using the latest processor, they should have at least gone with 3GB of RAM for the device to perform without slowing down easily. Reviews of the device is yet to be out but the specifications easily allow the average buyer to find whether it would suit power user expectations or is plainly designed for mid-ranged users who wouldn’t open more than five apps at once. It comes with 32GB of storage space which is good combined with micro SD card slot to expand up to 2TB.
LG G Pad IV sports a 8-inch IPS display that offers great viewing angles and crisp color reproduction. The display has a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. A 5 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera adorns the tablet which is purely for video calling. You are definitely not going to expect the best camera output because tablets were never originally designed to be as good as smartphones in the photography department. The overall weight of the device is pegged at 290 grams and thankfully it runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out of the box. It has 3,000 mAh battery.
In all their advertisements, LG has been marketing it as a lightweight device making it easy for students, kids and women to carry it around with ease. The device is priced at $305 approximately and has been launched in South Korea.
