Which tablet should I choose? Nexus 7 2013 or LG G Pad 8.3?

I switched from Nexus 7 2013 to GPad 8.3 a few weeks ago and cannot imagine to ever use a smaller tablet again. Nexus 7 2013 was too small for me to use it as a tablet. Only thing i am missing is real device encryption on GPAD. On cm11 rom device encryption is totally broken and no matter which rom u use (even with stock rom) you cannot fully encrypt the whole device -> if you encrypt external sd card, all file and folder-names are still visible (content is encrypted).

Its a shame it doesnt work but why would you want to encrypt anything anyway?..

Because in case the device gets lost or stolen, I don't want anyone to be able to easily access my private data through adb / recovery or by simply taking it from the sd card.
