Default LG G Pad 8.3 or Asus Nexus 7?

Hey there,
I am going to buy my first tablet and I am not sure which one to choose. In Italy, 32GB nexus 7 is 190 euros, and G Pad 8.3 is 180 (very cheap).

Which one should I go for? Is the LG g pad supported many developers (I like modding)?
Sorry for my poor english

I vote for the G Pad. Previously owned a Nexus and a Samsung Pro 8.4 and like the gpad the best. If you look in the developer section theres quite a few roms floating around. Nowhere near the nexus but still a pretty good selection.

If you mean the glad 8.3, I have and nexus 7 2013. N7 is better all around except the 8 inch feels better to hold and easier to read due to screen size. All other features n7 wins.

Also looks like a new nexus 8 of some sort is coming soon, rumors of course.

I'm very curious too. The G Pad has a bigger screen, better chipset, expandable storage. The only advantage the Nexus has in my eyes is that there is a lot more roms to choose from. Some people complain about the screen on the G Pad but with a custom kernel and software to adjust the gamma you can get it very close to being perfect.

To me being as your in Italy and the G Pad is cheaper its a 100% no brainer. Good luck on whatever you choose
