lg pad x 80 review

The LG G Pad X 8.0 is a good tablet that straddles the line between premium 10-inch Android tablets and bargain-basement 7-inch models. It offers a sharp screen, a decent battery and some impressive software features. But it also has a few kinks that are hard to overlook.

The G Pad X 8.0 ships with a version of Android that's more than a year old. It's unclear how long it will take for an update to reach this model, but most Android users should be able to navigate the older OS with ease. LG doesn't do a lot to alter the UI, except for a feature that makes it easy to put a Chrome window on top of a YouTube video.

This is an AT&T tablet, so it requires a cellular plan. Adding a tablet to your AT&T account costs $10 per month and shares data with your phone. If you have an AT&T phone, you'll be able to use your LG tablet for calls and texts, as well as browse the web and download apps.

The 8-inch screen is big enough to read a few chapters at a time, but not so large that it's too cumbersome to hold in one hand. It also has a full HD display with rich colors and crisp text. The back camera has a 5-megapixel sensor and the front camera is a respectable 1.2-megapixel. There's no flash on either camera, so you'll be limited to indoor or well-lit shooting.
