LG G Pad F7.0 vs Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition - Sprint Product Ambassdor

Sprint Product Ambassador


I received a request to compare the LG G Pad F7.0 to a larger tablet. I used my Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition to use as a comparison. I found it interesting to compare the two tablets as I had not thought of comparing them before. They both have their advantages depending on what you will be using a tablet for. I am looking at portability and convience myself now that I have a tablet in two different sizes.

That was a quick basic configuration comparison of the two tablets.... I treat my tablets like my phones and put a case on them. Cases help protect against accidental drops and for continence of watching a movie. Here is a short video of both my tablets with cases comparing them in size...

I like having my tablet for entertainment during lunch for that mental break during lunch. I would be limited on on where I could have lunch if I wanted internet since not all places have Wi-Fi access needed for my Samsung tablet. Now that I have my LG G Pad with both LTE and Wi-Fi, my lunch options opened up. I have eaten at Raising Caine's more here lately with my G Pad for lunch....

Advantages the LG G Pad F7.0 has over my Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition:

    • Battery last a lot longer... I can go a couple days on a single charge with my G Pad
    • I can slip my G Pad in my back pocket and still have my hands free
    • Spark LTE network connection and not dependent on finding Wi-Fi access when on the go
    • Lollipop - helps with apps on SD card

Disadvantage of my LG G Pad over my Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition:

    • I had to add a SD card to hold some of my data - minor since I bought several SD cards at Best Buy when they were on sale
    • Lower  RAM and is noticeable sometimes when going back to homescreen. Does not impact performance when watching a movie, playing games or anything else.

I have given my Samsung tablet to my wife to use and carry my LG G Pad F7.0 with me. We take it when we go out on the weekends checking out sales to take advantage of a larger screen to look things up. I pretty much take my G Pad everywhere I go now because it is so portable.....

Visit a Sprint store and checkout the LG G Pad F7.0 yourself....
