People sometimes ask me to recommend a Chinese tablet.
I won’t do that. They each have their own problems and all of them have sub-par quality control, really making every single one of them basically a bet. I don’t want to be somebody’s fall guy for money wasted on a bad bet.
Still, they interest me. At least the iPad Mini clones do.
My own thinking of what I would buy is this …
This is writer Derek Raymond:

Out of China comes word that the LG G Pad 8.3 will be priced at US$299 [Google English].
This has tentative confirmation in a post at Android Authority: LG G Pad 8.3 release date at the end of the month; priced “very competitively:
Sources familiar with the matter told Android Authority that the LG G Pad 8.3 would be priced “very competitively”. While our sources couldn’t confirm the final price, they did say that it could be in the $300 range.
The current iPad Mini begins at US$329. It has just 512MBs of RAM and a 7.85-inch 1024 x 768 screen at ~163 ppi.
The LG G Pad 8.3 has 2GBs of RAM and an 8.3-inch 1920 x 1080 screen at ~273 ppi. And a microSD card slot.
US$299 would be a good price.
The New LG Tablet Looks Good
This is the first of the upcoming tablets using the octa-core Samsung Exynos 5410 CPU [Google English].
It’s a clone of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0.
