LG's New Brilliant Bronze Beauty

And how it shapes up against Samsung

LG's New Brilliant Bronze Beauty

While this doesn’t have a QuadHD/4K screen, or a super thin frame, instead it is giving you want people actually really need for their tech products: a long battery life. 

It’s a well known fact that tablets are no longer the cool kid on the block, but tech companies just keep making them anyway. The only way to get a rise out of the general public (and actually motivate them to buy said tablets) is to bring some interesting specs: an amazing resolution, super thin (and portable), or a long battery life.

As usual, Samsung and Apple have been dominating the competition in pretty much all fields, including but not limited to, tablets. Which is why I’m rooting for the “underdog” on this one: the all new LG G PAd II 10.1.

For those that just can’t part from their Android, rest easy. While this doesn’t have a QuadHD/4K screen, or a super thin frame, instead it is giving you want people actually really need for their tech products: a long battery life. The second generation tablet will still offer an incredibly sharp 1,920 x 1,200 resolution display on a 10.1-inch screen (which is better than last year’s G Pad 10.1 that only managed a 1,280 x 800 resolution), it will now also come with a very generous 7,400 mAh battery, which pretty much guarantees an all day device.

The rest of the specs are incredibly decent, but boring. It is what you need from a tablet though - a speedy quad-core, 2.26GHz Snapdragon processor alongside 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (which is expandable via microSD card), with a functional 5 megapixel primary snapper and a 2 megapixel selfie shooter. Obviously it runs Android 5.1.1.

In terms of design, it is a lightweight 489g, and 7.8mm thin, but again, nothing amazing. It has only one color, “Brilliant Bronze”.

For those wondering how it shapes up next to a more popular tablet, Samsung’s 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 that was also just released has a slightly better 2,048 x 1,536 screen and comes in a 5.6mm thick. But of course, it only manages 5,870 mAh.

LG hasn’t announced the date in will land in stores, and has also withheld the pricing. Apparently it will be formally introduced at this year’s IFA in Berlin, which will take place September 4-9.
