The LG G Pad II 10.1 is one of the largest devices released by the manufacturer LG to date.
This tablet was launched in September 2015 after the announcement of its arrival a month earlier. The G Pad II 10.1 was released as a successor to the LG G Pad II 8.0. LG has made many changes for the better from the predecessor tablet to the LG G Pad II 10.1. The bronze color of the tablet gives it a stylish and elegant look. With side mounted dual speakers and large bezels, the LG device is intended for use in landscape orientation. As you read through the specifications of this gadget, remember to keep in mind the fact that it is ideal for people on a medium budget. The G Pad II 10.1 features the provision for incorporating a micro SIM.
Dimensions, Weight and Body Material
The LG tablet has a size of 10.01 x 6.34 x 0.31 inches and weighs 489g. The metal body gives the device a premium appearance with its soft metallic finish. Overall, the G Pad II 10.1 tablet weighs slightly more or the same as some other popular tablets. In terms of size, the LG G Pad II 10.1 is slightly more compact than its leading counterparts. This makes it easy to hold the tablet when operating it.
Screen Display and Pixel Resolution & Density
The G Pad II 10.1 sports a 10.1-inch capacitive touch screen that incorporates Full HD IPS LCD technology. The device has a pixel resolution of 1200 x 1920 and a pixel density of 224ppi. Although the pixel resolution is not really excellent, the pixel density is actually quite good making the display decent. Thanks to the IPS LCD display technology, the gadget renders good viewing angles. Like the screens of any other such device, the screen encompasses a proximity sensor, a light sensor, a gyroscope and an accelerometer.
There are some other aspects that need to be highlighted about this LG tablet. One is the Reader mode that comes in handy if you are an avid reader and are planning to use the tablet for this activity. When this mode is activated, the typical blue light that is produced by the screen gets reduced to make sure that you can read comfortably without straining your eyes. A second feature is the Dual Window mode. Ever thought how nice it would be to do two activities at a time on your tablet? This is where the Dual Window mode can help. When this mode is turned on, you can work on two apps at the same time.
The rear primary camera is a moderate 5MP shooter that supports autofocus and has 2592 x 1944 pixel resolution. This snapper does not support flash functionality. As is to be expected, the camcorder is capable of recording videos. As for the front shooter, the LG G Pad II comprises a 2MP snapper. Since there is nothing great about the rear camera’s pixel value, your favorite images and videos will not be of strikingly high quality and are of reasonable clarity.
Hardware, Memory and Software
Discussing about the hardware, the G Pad II 10.1 uses a quad core processor that clocks at 2.26GHz. It comes with 2GB of inbuilt RAM and 16 GB ROM as memory. The tablet also houses an Adreno 330 graphics processor. The memory in the device can be expanded externally with memory cards. An interesting point to be noted in this regard is that LG has joined hands with Microsoft to offer 100GB cloud storage exclusively for this tablet. This storage is free for the initial two years. After the two year period, you can purchase this storage space for a fee and continue using it. The LG G Pad II 10.1 is loaded with Lollipop – the most recent version of Android as of date.
While the G Pad II uses a non-removable Li-ion battery like many other smartphones and tablets, one point is definitely worth mentioning. The tablet houses a 7,400 mAh battery that is actually among the biggest batteries used in any gadget as of today and is quite powerful as well. This ensures uninterrupted operation for a pretty long time when you use your tablet.
Gone are the days where you are skeptical about forgetting important to do tasks. With this functionality, you can create and save memos to remind you about these tasks. Even if you have the Dual Window feature on, you can use this app on both the windows.
