I've been using the LG gpad for over a month now. It's grown on me more and more. It's practical, has excellent build quality and is a pleasure to use. I've had a Samsung 8" and ipad mini but I'd choose the LG G pad in preference. I've used the Samsung 2014 8.4 which has a great screen. However, I didn't find it as enjoyable to use as the gpad, due to the feel in the hand of the Samsung 8.4, and the gpads's more practical approach to multitasking gives it an edge over Samsung's equivalent.
