Tablets
[SOUND]. If you're a Verizon customer and you're interesting in picking up a new tablet, you're going to want to check out the LG D Pad x 8.3. For CNet, I'm Xiomara Blanco, let's take a closer look. What sets this 4G LTE tablet a part are a few functionality features that you won't find on other models. Namely it packs a full USB port IR blaster and stylus. The USB port is located on the top edge in between the IR blaster and headphone jack. Most tablets have a micro USB port But an additional full-sized one is a rather rare sight. You can connect a flash drive or hard drive to load all your favorite content or you can even connect a mouse or a keyboard if you want to. The IR blaster, also on the top edge, can turn your tablet into a remote control. Using the built-in app, you can set it up to control your TV, Blu-ray player, cable box, or receiver. Lastly the stylus. Which is slightly tucked into the bottom edge, is light as a feather, and traditionally thin. It also feels comfortable and makes navigating the tablet easy. The preloaded QuickMemo app allows you to write or draw and offers a healthy amount of. And of different style options. Other notable software features on the G Pad include Q-Pair, which pairs your phone to your tablet so you only have to use the tablet to respond to calls or text messages, and useful dual window capabilities for simple Multitasking. The LCD Pad X 8.3 runs on the latest version of Google's operating system, Android Lollipop, and it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5 gigahertz quad core processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, 16 gigabytes of internal memory, and a microSD card slot that's expandable up to 120 gigabytes. The 8.3 inch screen is rather average with the 1080 by 1920 pixel resolution display that's sharp and colorful enough but not very bright. There's a pair of stereo speakers for enjoying your favorite movies and music but unfortunately they're on the back. The good news is that they're not easy to block when holding in landscape orientation. The LG G Pad X 8.3 retails for 299. But if you're willing to sign up with Verizon for a two-year contract, it's only 129, which is a lot more reasonable. If you need something basic with a few Few extra functionality perks, I recommend you check it out at your local Verizon store. For CNET, I'm Zeeohmara Blanco and this has been a first look at the LG G Pad X 8.3. [MUSIC]
