So I recently purchased a bargain priced g pad here in the UK. I am currently an Ipad air owner(boooo) but wanted to get an Android tablet and this seemed like my best option. But I have to say that I am really disappointed as it it laggy as hell and the battery life is pretty poor.

Is this normal or am I the proud owner of a dud? The lag occurs in stock launcher and apex. It also happens in browsers, namely chrome, Uc and dolphin. It even lags when browsing threads on tapatalk.

I have factory reset it and no joy. I am outside the 7 day return period and so kind of need to fix the issue if poss.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be given

I own LG GPad 8.3 as well, and I don't see any lags, it is working as normal. even games are running smoothly. I don't know why is it lagging on your tablet.

I find my g pad smooth as well and no issues. Very happy with speed. Now my galaxy s3 phone, that is laggy and looking forward to next upgrade

Im pretty surprised with how much people are getting lags.. even with stck unrooted out of the box i dont get these lags.. although i knew it can perform better.. for the people with lags try rooting and installing the malladus custom rom.. suped up stock rom with most of the lg software in tact..... as stated in that forum the way the stock rom should run.......... much smoother when running anything and everything...... try it out..

Thanks for the replies, I may have to go down the root path then as a test, other than the lag and slightly poor battery life it is a good tablet for sure

I've also observed some stuttering while using my V500 (especially scrolling webpages).

The best way to test this is to choose image from gallery, zoom in and drag it around furiously
Sometimes its smooth and works as supposed to, but most of the times after a second or two it stops responding to finger movements.

No idea what to do. I like LG stock rom, but this is a deal-breaker for me

I have experienced really bad lag playing jetpack joyride. Anyone else experience this? Running stock.

I rooted mine and installed cyanogenmod as soon as I got it home. The stock ROM isn't great, getting almost vanilla Android on it makes for a much nicer and snappier tablet

add the task manager widget, how much Free RAM is there when it lags?

I'm usually at 600-730 free RAM and the only time it lags is when closing out a game and quickly launching email or Chrome app from home screen.
