In November last year, I shared with you the impressions of LG G Pad 8.3. Tablet really turned out good, especially compared to the previous attempt. In the same year, LG pleases us the whole line of interesting devices. Interest both inside and outside. But today we are not talking about the entire line, but the LG G Pad 10.1.
Design and Ergonomics – LG G Pad 10.1
Appearance of the device is very similar to Nexus 10: the same rounded edges and lack of flashy design elements. Even in red device looks concisely. The plate is still good in the hands, and the boundaries of the top and bottom of the display are noticeably smaller, which affects the overall pleasant experience. At the same time, the side frames – about 2 cm in width, which allows weighty conveniently hold device (523 grams) in a horizontal orientation, vertically as to operate the device is not so convenient.
The front side is covered with a protective glass panel with an effective oleophobic coating on the glass – eye 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Basic elements are arranged on the left: headset jack, microphone, MicroSD card slot up to 64 GB, and microUSB. Top – lock button, volume rocker and the infrared port of the device that will make the remote control for your home appliances. And I do not think that this is a great use for the 10-inch tablet.
The back cover is aligned with the side cover of the device and all of this capacity with softtach matte coating on it – the eye of the main stereo and 5 megapixel camera. On the red model fingerprints would not noticeable on the black they are still visible, not superkritichno, is even worse.
Camera is here, and it pleases. They are not the best quality, but for video and photo cards are no longer needed. And do not say that you do instamografiey on the tablet.
Display – LG G Pad 10.1
Matrix 10.1-inch display is made by technology IPS. A resolution – just a 1,280 x 800 pixels, it is 150 ppi. It’s pretty weak for today’s realities. Even Apple has blamed for 323 ppi 4.7 inches. Do not forget that the LG G Pad 10.1 does not claim to be the flagship for someone display is not a problem, moreover, it allows you to reduce the price of the device and save battery life. Mode automatic backlight adjustment is not available, as there is no appropriate encoder. Individual pixels are clearly visible, the colors slightly palish, but the maximum brightness and viewing angles are ample.
Performance, autonomy and software – LG G Pad 10.1
The heart of the LG G Pad 10.1 is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 400, clocked at 1.2GHz (MSM8226) and performed on 28 nm process technology and the schedule meets the GPU Adreno 305. From 16GB of storage available to the user, only 11 (supports microSD cards up to 32 GB) and RAM of 1 GB, which is felt in the work – the browser tabs are frequently rebooted and processes in the background stops. In general, the device works well, considering the average iron and appropriate price category. You may want to find fault with some passing problems in the system, but we must understand that this is not a flagship device. But in general, work with your tablet safe, given the heavy applications and games.
Including this is achieved in that the processor does not spend a lot of power to display images on the screen, because the resolution is not high. Through this same battery in 8000 mAh tablet lives unusually long time – about 14 hours of viewing HD-video and demanding games. AnTuTu Tester made his case for more than 8 hours and issued 11,576 points. In real life, it has absolutely no value. One gets the feeling that when the display is off, the device is absolutely no power consumption, and when turned on, the battery is very difficult to land. I think if you actively use the product every day, then you will need to charge it every 4-5 days.
LG G Pad 10.1 is running Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), it was not without proprietary interface Optimus UI, elements of which seem to be well, too big for such a diagonal. Here and proprietary applications from LG, support Knock Code and other chips. It is necessary to focus on the application QPair, which allows you to synchronize notifications between your tablet and smartphone compatible with QPair. Not bad implemented dvuhokonny mode on the main diagonal is irreplaceable, of course.
Conclusions – LG G Pad 10.1
HD-vacuum on a 10-inch display, except minus a grainy picture, brought with it the good points – the ultra-high endurance and a very good performance at a feeble gland. In addition, the design of the device is a very pleasant, it is especially good in red. In their daily work, he showed himself very well, and if you do not pursue top-end performance, resolution and want to save, then the LG G Pad 10.1 for $ 260 good for you.
