We know that a certain Samsung 8.4 inch tablet is catching everyone's attention right now, so it's a perfect time to consider LG's competitor the LG G Pad 8.3, available in both LG standard and Google Play Edition models. This is a classy looking Android 4.2 tablet with a metal back and it's available in your choice of black or white. Where the Nexus 7 is a bargain tablet with decent specs, the G Pad 8.3 is a higher end piece with a larger display, faster CPU and a microSD card slot. It runs on the 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad core CPU with 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. Dual cameras, GPS, dual band WiFi and Bluetooth are on board as is USB host. The specs are lower than the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, but the price tag is lower too.
