LG G Pad II 10.1- mid-range 10-inch tablet for the entire world

LG G Pad II 10.1 was officially announced today, just a few days later to the 8-inch version. The G Pad II 8 version was initially announced as a South-Asian exclusive. It has a pretty underwhelming tech construction with its Snapdragon 210 processor with 1.5 Gigs of RAM and full size USB port plus a stylus. The 10 inch version seems to be something better and, of course, bigger.

Why is LG G Pad II 10 different?


LG G Pad II 10.1 acts as a whole different thing because it is trying to sport more actual features than its smaller sister. It uses a 1920x2000p screen, which is basically the lowest resolution a 10-inch tablet should have to consider itself any good.


The rest of the specs don’t sound that bad either: Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, Android 5.1.1 and 16GB of storage plus a microSD card. Everything is powered by a 7400 mAh battery AND you can get it in purple or brilliant bronze. The cameras are kinda the lowest score for the LG G Pad tablet: a primary 5MP camera plus a 2MP front snapper.





The LG G Pad II 10.1 does have some interesting and “unique” features like a reader mode where the blue light of the screen is decreased, and a multi-window mode. The device will have pre-loaded Microsoft Office apps and it gets 100 GB of free storage on the OneDrive system. It is available in Wi-Fi and LTE versions.


LG’s mid-range tablet will be available in Europe, Asia and North America, but we have no details regarding its price at the moment.

LG G Pad 8.3 Google edition OTA update to Lollipop – get the manual update ZIP here

LG G Pad 8.3 Google edition is getting the Lollipop OTA update today! Some users already have their updates, which is why most of us can now get our own manual update from the ZIP file linked below.


In order to flash the manual update, your device will have to be back on stock Android (in case you changed something software-wise) and use ADB manual flash. Some modifications made do the stock system, such as root, are going to interfere and block your manual update too, so beware. Even after you update there may be a few bugs to sort out, considering most updated phones so far had little Lollipop-related issues.
