LG Gpad F2 8.0 - How I use my Gpad


The GPad has come to be one of my go to devices for regular daily use. The tablet can handle quite a bit for a mid-level tier device. I find the 8" screen and nice size bezels perfect for holding and viewing my day to day news feeds, browsing my Favorite social media apps and watching streaming content


Some of my favorite news feeds include Flipboard, Feedly, WSJ, and Google News & Weather. For social Media I have my standards Facebook, Google+ and Instagram. As for my Streaming content I use Sling TV, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.


To maximize my battery I reduce my brightness to 80% and set my screen off time to 1 min. I have enabled battery saver to initialize at 5% and currently only using Location mode set for networks only to reduce consumption. One of the main changes I make is I initialize the Mobile Data Usage Limit option. I set my Data cap and setup a warning level to be around 75%. This is to make sure I don't go over my monthly allotment and get billed on a per data basis. 


Find each of these changes listed here:

  • Brightness/screen off timer - Located under the Display Section
  • Battery Saver - Located under the Battery & Power section
  • Location Mode - Located under the Location section
  • Limit Mobile Data usage - Located under the Mobile Data section

This tablet is a great all around tablet for day to day needs whether you are using it for personal use or professional use. I believe this tablet is great for all types of needs. 


At the time of writing this the LG Gpad F2 8.0 currently runs $149.99 or get it for 

$0.00 down + tax [$6.25 for 23 payments, $6.24 for the 24th payment].

Enjoy and remember never use your phone or tablet while driving, be safe and healthy.
