US Cellular Grabs the LG G Pad F 8.0 for $129

July 8, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We saw the LG G Pad F 8.0 launch on AT&T a few weeks back, and now it’s made its way to the fifth largest US carrier, that is US Cellular – who is more of a regional carrier than anything. The Full price of the LG G Pad F 8.0 is $252, however if you don’t want to pay that all right now, there are other options. You can sign a two-year contract and grab the LG G Pad F 8.0 for just $129, or go with $0 down and $10.50 per month for 24 months, and you’ll be able to upgrade after 12 months, but you will have to trade in the LG G Pad F 8.0 after 12 months to be able to upgrade.

As you can probably tell by the name, this is an 8-inch tablet, and has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor on board as well. For cameras, LG has a 2MP front-facer and a 5MP rear-facing camera. Along with 16GB of internal storage, however that can be expanded with a microSD card slot. It does have Android 5.0 on board, which is a nice thing to have, as most tablets with these type of specs are running KitKat still.

There are a few interesting tidbits about this tablet. For one, it has a full sized USB port. Yes, a full size USB port, not a micro USB port. At least it’s not a proprietary port though, so you can use just about any USB cord you have laying around to charge it up. LG has also included a stylus with the LG G Pad F 8.0. So you can draw, take notes and much more. It’s a nice addition.

It’s a decent tablet here from LG, but not something we’d call a flagship from the company. It will serve most people’s needs, like checking email, checking Twitter, etc. but for gaming, you may want to look elsewhere. We are still waiting on LG to upgrade their flagship tablet that came out shortly after the LG G2, the LG G Pad 8.3. Hopefully LG doesn’t disappoint, as I’m sure many are looking for more high-end tablet choices. Right now the tablet market is getting pretty scarce.
