It's not the thinnest or lightest tablet around, but the LG is still fairly lightweight and comfortable to hold.

The stylus works well for jotting down quick notes or writing gibberish for fun, but don't expect anything as fancy as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

If you don't have any nails, the stylus might be hard to pull out of its hiding place.

The 8.3-inch isn't overwhelmingly bright or colorful, but it's vibrant enough for enjoying HD video and binging on Netflix.

If you don't mind a 2-year contract, the LG G Pad X8.3 is a steal for $129.

At the retail $299 price, however, it is not. If you have that kind of money to spend, I suggest upgrading to the Dell Venue 8 7000.
