LG G Pad 7.0 is almost entirely made of plastic with a surface Soft Touch. Exception – the front panel, which is traditionally all-glass. The manufacturer has provided several options for colors: plain black, who was with us on the test, as well as white, blue and orange.
Personally, I would not recommend taking black – despite the Soft Touch, the surface remains fairly brand, and delete prints are not so simple. In colored versions with practicality, apparently, things are better. And they look subjectively interesting.
The top of the manufacturer has placed a headphone jack, IR port, microphone hole and a slot microSD. Special thanks to infrared, which LG started to equip even low-end models of its smartphones or tablets. In conjunction with the company’s function Quick Remote IR turns your device into a universal remote control to any TV, air conditioning or other equipment.
On the side cover are standard keys razblokirovi and volume control. The bottom end has connector microUSB, and the surface of the back of the stereo speakers, broken only by the lattice and the main camera lens, which somehow deprived of the outbreak.
There have G Pad 7.0 and a light sensor, so that will have to adjust the screen brightness manually. I do not think that this is definitely a useful element would strongly influenced by the price of the device.
To build quality has nothing to complain – no squeaks and not falter. The only thing that did not like it back soiled surface in a black version. But due to the opaque plastic tablet does not slip out of your hands, and compact dimensions allow to carry a gadget in a small briefcase, purse, or easily placed in the glove compartment of the car.
7-inch IPS-display was far nerekordnoe standards for tablet resolution – 1280 x 800 pixels. But to expect from the brand tablet for 2000 UAH Full HD resolution would be naive. In practice, the screen is very good, both on the part of the viewing angle, and the work in bright sunlight. In the end, make high-quality displays, the LG always managed.
The pixel density of 216 ppi, but I would not call it a disadvantage. In reality, the pixels can be seen only in large contrasting fonts in the menu, but there are not too annoying.
On board G Pad 7.0 is a 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 400 with a frequency of 1.2 GHz and a graphics chip Adreno 305. Not every tablet in this price range can boast of such iron, more often, middling and state employees working on more modest chips MediaTek. But the amount of RAM is not surprised – only 1 GB.
In the test AnTuTu tablet scored 17548 points, which is generally a good idea. In games, Modern Combat level 4 and 8 Asphalt can count on beautiful visual effects and lack of stuttering. At the same time, the body heats up slightly.
As opertsionnoy system uses a tablet version of Android dovolnos vezhuyu – 4.4.2 with traditional proprietary shell. This means that you will be able to unlock your tablet double tap of the screen, with the ability to take screenshots immediately cut the desired fragment is convenient to work with notes and much more. By the number of useful additions LG shell can be considered as one of the best.
From the innovations note “smart” keyboard, which is adjustable in height with just one movement and supports all sorts of ways to quickly enter. And no less a handy feature allows you to connect your QPair phone and tablet in order to take calls or read messages on any of the devices that will be in your hands at the right time.
LG G Pad 7.0 was just two cameras , but both are very modest. The main camera is 3 megapixels lacks autofocus and flash and makes mediocre pictures. Obviously, the camera is given a supporting role here. It is assumed that the user will be photographed mostly using a smartphone, tablet while photographing – function are not essential.
Autonomy did not disappoint. Standard battery 4000 mAh battery lasts for 2-3 days, depending on the tasks and the frequency of use. If you constantly watch videos or play, you can expect about 5-6 hours, which is too bad.
LG G Pad 7.0 – is a quality low-cost tablet, which can be considered one of the best in its category. Demanding users the model does not surprise you, but if you need affordable and compact workhorse, it is worth a closer look to this model. A bright color options tablet still looks great.
