LG G Pad builds on the recently unveiled LG G2 smartphone, with 8.36-inch screen it is a big tablet. LG boasts the slim and sleek factor of the LG G Pad even though it has a large display.

LG G Pad comes with apps from LG like QPair, QMemo etc. QPair allows users to connect their smartphones with the tablet, every call and message received on users smartphone will appear on G Pad and users can send simple replies from G Pad. QPair also works with other Android phones with Jelly Bean as the recommended OS. QMemo allows users to create notes on the tablet, these notes can also be shared with users smartphone seamlessly.
Slide Aside allows users to simply slide apps to the screen edge by using a three finger swipe. Q Slide allows users to manage upto three apps in one window to take advantage of the large screen. KnockON will turn the display on and off with a double tap, familiar if you have seen Nokia Asha 501.
