For a limited time through Newegg, you can grab a brand new LG G Pad 8.3 for just $249.99. Regularly priced at $349.99, this is one deal you probably shouldn’t pass up if an Android tablet was on your shopping list. Thanks to an instant savings of $70 when added to your cart, and then with the help of another coupon code that takes another $30 off, you are saving $100 off of the full retail. Boom, baby. 

The G Pad 8.3 is a good tablet, featuring a Full HD IPS display, Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 5MP rear-facing camera. We currently have a Google Play Edition of this device in the house, and it’s one of the better tablets we use on a frequent basis. You can check out our hands-on with the device below.

For this price, it easily competes with any other slate on the market, so go check it out.

    Would people get this or the current Nexus 10? I’m deciding selling my iPad outright for this or trading someone for a Nexus 10.

    • Brian Roskamp

      I haven’t owned a tablet yet, but I’ve been holding out for a new version of the Nexus 10 about a year now, I finally jumped on this deal though.

    I so wanted to buy this around thanksgiving time when it was selling for the same price. One look at its max brightness killed it for me. The max brightness level on this one is abysmally low. Dont know if ts a hardware or software issue. May be the GPE is different. I dont know.

    I’m actually starting to consider the galaxy note 8 I stead, but I’m noticing that it appears to be the 2013 model right now…anyone know when a 2014 model is expected?

  • lg g2

    was considering this until i read about the battery life – was expecting at least 8 hours. 5-6 is really not that great for this size of device and battery

  • Martin JoFX

    BTW Best buy matches any offer, so you can call and mention this Newegg deal if you rather buy at Best Buy. Just saying… I actually did that :D

  • TimXer

    Cost not being a consideration, you would get this over a nexus 7 all day, every day, right?

    • The Narrator

      Being 7″ vs 8.3″ it’s all up to your preference. SD slot can be appealing to a lot of of people.

    • calculatorwatch

      It’s a tough choice for me right now. On the Nexus 7 you get a smaller form factor, stock Android and fast updates. On the G Pad you get a bigger screen, better specs, and a MicroSD slot. Hmm…

  • Ryan Cota

    Have wondered this, but is there a way to flash the GPE firmware onto one of these? And I don’t mean ROMing, just converting it to a GPE version?

    • adamcorwin

      I looked into it when I got mine last week. I don’t think you can. There is a gpe ROM on xda, but seems buggy from comments I’ve read. I just put cm11 on it and have been really happy with it.

      • Ryan Cota

        Ah I see, ya I would probably put CM on it too, have never had any issues with it on my phones. Cool good to know, thanks

    • AndroidUser00110001

      Nope you cannot. Partition table is different and there very well could be slight difference in hardware too.

      GPE ROM does not work either. No WiFi, sound or Bluetooth. Don’t buy this if you are looking to convert to GPE. What sucks is AOSP based ROMs for the G Pad are having issues with some games.

  • JeremyRoenickDanceParty

    I have the GPE edition of this tablet and it is by far the best size and form factor of any tablet ever. So freaking comfortable to use.

  • sagisarius

    I really wish they would sell GPE devices out in the wild. It would be great to get that version for $250!

  • http://colorunner.com/ Christoph Puetz

    Promo code does not work. Actually only works on the white model, but price only goes down to $279.99 not $249.99

    • calculatorwatch

      Did you scroll down to where it says “Grand total”? I just tried it and it still says 279.99 at the top but the grand total is 249.99.

  • SplashMTN

    I really want to use part of my tax return to get this, but my 2012 Nexus 7 is still going too strong to justify it.

  • ImHOWIE

    FYI, only the white version can be gotten at that price. You will pay $50 more for the black version.

    • Lucky Armpit

      Never understood that. I’m NOT paying $50 extra for a color.

      • Maxim∑

        They use a special painting process for the white one called TCIL “this color is lighter”.

  • Brian Roskamp

    Hmmm, tax return was deposited today. I think it’s a sign that I needed to get this. I ended up getting the open box black model for $10 more.

  • mcdonsco

    Wondering…what’s the timing for release for the next nexus 7(or 8?)…lost my 2013 nexus 7 and dont want to spend $250 tobre-buy the exact one if the 2014 is due out soon?

    • The Narrator

      After Google I/O. So July ish. If they keep making them.

      • mcdonsco

        Gracias!

        • The Narrator

          As far as justifying, it’s a pretty nice device. Aluminum body, SD slot, 8.3 in Full HD display, SD600, LGs software isn’t very bloated, big battery.

          • mcdonsco

            Maybe I’ll look into it to tide me over till the next nexus…then give it to one of my nieces or nephew then…thanks again.

          • calculatorwatch

            Consumerism, my friend. These companies know just how to tempt us.

      I exchanged an iPad mini for this during Best Buy’s sale of $299 a few weekends ago, and its a great, great, tablet. Rooted, put the G2 Xposed module on it, and its running like a champion. Great size & form factor, threw a 32GB SD card in it for some extra storage, and its now moved in front of my OG Nexus 7 for favored tablet status. Well, that and my wife won’t let me have my OG Nexus 7 back, so the GPad wins by default, but still.
