For those of you that are looking for something more portable than a full 10-inch tablet but with more screen space than a 7-incher, a device like the LG G Pad 8.3 can certainly give you the best of both worlds. Of course it’s also a little on the pricey side at $350.

The good news is that Newegg is currently offering the tablet for sale at just $279.99. Even better news, the item eligible for a $30 discount when you enter the code “FWPD213B”, bringing the total price to just $249.99.

For $250, the G Pad is a heck of a deal if you’re looking for more screen space and it’s also quite powerful thanks to the Snapdragon 600 CPU and accompanying 2GB of RAM. Other specs include an 8.3-inch display with a 1920×1200 resolution, a 5MP main cam, 1.3MP front cam and a 4600 mAh battery.

It’s important to note, however, that this is the standard version, and therefore includes LG’s custom software versus the pure Android KitKat experience that you’d get from the Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3. Still, if you don’t mind LG’s customizations and are looking for a solid deal, this good be the perfect device for you.

What do you think, anyone planning on picking this one up, or would you rather sacrifice a little screen size and go with a Nexus tablet instead?

    Buy it folks…lg UI is actually awesome and really adds to Android in a good way. Change tje wallpaper and alter a few icons and the cartoony elements disappear. And you are left with a blinding fast tablet with an awesome screen! I love mine.

    • MrMLK

      Agreed. The LG changes are all pretty useful. Multiple apps on the screen at the same time is very handy. Calling the changes a downside makes it seem like you wrote this article based on a press release. Perhaps use it for a while and let us know if you still think its not an improvement.

      • Andrew Grush

        Your right, calling it a downside probably wasn’t the best choice of words at all. While I personally prefer stock Android, there are many folks that will enjoy the customizations LG brings to the table. Thanks for your input!

          … and it’s a G-Pad… Not a G2 as mentioned toward the end of the article… Wouldn’t want people getting confused!

        Some are, some aren’t. If you dont’ like it, just install a different launcher. Or hell, this is a tablet and carrier free, so root/rom to your heart’s content. ;)

    Google play editions are so expensive, and yet they are killing the Nexus lineup…

  • Jayfeather787

    At this price, I would get it over a Nexus 7. Newegg has some great deals.

    Be careful, folks. Only the white color is on sale, and has 16GB. The 32 GB is still $350. Please have more info whenever announces a sale offer.

  • Does anyone know if this will be getting 5.0 lollipop? I really like this tablets size and build, and bow that it has dropped in price to mid $200 seems like a really good buy..
