I'm looking to buy either a LG G Pad 8.3 or or the nexus 7 2013. Both are on sale at the moment, I can get the LG G Pad for £180 and the 16 GB Nexus 7 for the same price or pay £210 for the 32 GB Nexus 7. Pros for the G pad: Larger screen Q pair Customisable app icons Multitasking features Build quality Knock on Nexus 7: Higher resolution More frequent updates Good form factor I think the only thing that puts me off the G pad is the fact that in my country I can only buy it from an online retailer. I would like to see the device in the flesh before I buy it. I'm not bothered about it not running stock android. I don't think I'll be bothered by LG's skin as I use and like touch wiz. Also I think that samsung and LG's software looks similar visually and they even share some functions. So I'll probably go for the G pad. Just wanted to know if anyone had any views on this.
