LG G Pad 8.3 review: well-designed, but priced too high

LG's G Pad is a beautifully designed 8.3-inch tablet with an equally beautiful display. But its uneven performance combined with its relatively steep $350 price make rival Android tablets look like a steal.

Pros
  • Comfortable and stylish design
  • Gorgeous high-res display
  • Battery life on par with similar Android tablets
Cons
  • Uneven performance
  • Glut of non-essential LG 'Q' apps
  • Slightly expensive compared to rival tablets
