Is this already available here in Saudi Arabia? If so, where and what store can I check it?
the tab is exceptionally good, loved the way it can multi task with downloaded application including games. gives you options on having two screens at same time. like video and internet browsing and you could run one more app on main screen simultaneously. when i see the power the tab is capable of going ahead and run multiple apps and still i experienced no lags. iam using a 65 gb memory card and occupied 70% of it by movies. when i was using samsung and asus, whenever i filled the tab with movies they started to hang. But this one so far has shown no symtoms of any such thing. Amazing product. i say value for money as the Full HD IPS display kills it. its more better than retina display. LG you have gone beyond my expectations
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2013Would anyone know what kind of glass is used? Is it Gorilla Glass?Gorilla Glass or not is not an issue anymore since gorilla glass displays are easily broken. Hence all of touch screen phones today uses scratch proof glasses. If you want the real deal when it comes to glasses, wait until the dragontrail glasses are on the play. They claim to be scratch proof and very strong that it is almost impossible to break.

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2013LG Pad 8.3 supports LTE and is about the new Nexus 7 price Ummm.... No it doesn't.
LG G Pad 8.3 over Ipad Mini 2:
The best advantage of Androids especially G Pad 8.3 is that you can bump the memory to 16GB+64 GB(microSD) total and you can use any USB cable out there to charge or access your device. And btw, it is USD350 vs USD400 Ipad Mini 2 16GB.
Another advantage of LG G Pad 8.3 is that it is narrower by almost a centimeter making it more handy pocketable.
Ipad mini 2 over LG G Pad 8.3, one reason is that its 7.9" screen with a ratio of 4:3 is best for reading and multimedia. I don't understand why Androids do not use the same aspect ratio, rather they use 16:9 or 16:10-these will make their devices look much longer relative to its width, portrait mode is awkward. I compared the screen area of ipad mini vs LG G Pad 8.3, and the difference is just a sq. inch although G Pad 8.3 has longer screen diagonal, the reason is that it has aspect ratio of 16:10 compared to Ipad's 4:3.
Difference = (10*16)(8.3^2)/356-(7.9^2)*0.6*0.8 = 1 sq . in.
But ipad mini is a bit wider allowing you to see more view of a document in a portrait mode which the most comfortable for reading, since you can hold with one hand easil
What brightness level (50% of max brightness or absolute brightness of e.g. 200 cd/m2) has been used for the battery endurance tests such as browsing and watching video's ?
LG G Pad 8.3 is far better than Samsung galaxy Note 8 especially there is no capacitive keys.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2013This new tablet (LG G Pad 8.3) that has no track record whatsoever has been priced higher than... moreThe ipad mini 2 hasn't even been announced yet so there's no guarantee it will be $329. But it will certainly have a smaller screen and possibly lower resolution/ppi. The Kindle Fire HDX has impressive hardware, but you're stuck with Amazon's proprietary OS and app store. What good is that hardware if you don't even have access to Google Play? Considering actual direct competitors on the market right now (Nexus 7, Galaxy Note 8.0) $350 bucks for this device is pretty much right on point. Yes $300 would have made it more competitive, but $350 is in no way outrageous.
