The G2 and the G Pad 8.3, the flagship smartphone and tablet from LG Electronics Inc., are great mobile devices that have fantastic screens, top-end cameras and ample processing power. But making solid devices is not enough to stand apart from the crowd in the ultracompetitive mobile phone market, which probably pushed LG to make some bold design decisions in a bid to differentiate its G series from Samsungís Galaxy line and Appleís iPad mini.

About this Article

The new LG G Pad 8.3 has a screen that measures -- surprise -- 8.3 inches diagonally. With a screen resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,200 pixels, it's enough for high-definition video. It goes on sale in the U.S. starting Sunday for $350 -- cheaper than the new iPad Mini, which will start at $399 when it comes out later in November.
