As an integral part of Android Jelly Bean, Google Now is present on the G Pad 8.3. You can acquire to it by swiping up from the home button.

In addition to having the ability to recognize voice commands, Google Now will learn from your usage patterns and display relevant information. For example, if you search for a particular sports team frequently, Google Now will display information for upcoming games you might want to watch.

The service interacts with you by generating cards which are displayed on your classy screen and give you a short overview of information it believes is relevant to you. Going to work in the morning?

This extends to a multitude of other areas, including weather, traffic, public transit stations, and nearby points of interest.

You can either type or talk to Google Now and the app will give you one of its aforementioned info cards (if available) and read you its contents aloud (you can disable this from the app settings).

The LG G Pad 8.3 boasts a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and the Adreno 320 GPU. This is identical to what powers the Optimus G Pro, so we expect numbers more or less in line with those of the 5.5-inch phablet, with most incompatibility due to the fact that the G Pad has to some more pixels to push.

The G Pad 8.3 managed to join its G Pro brethren on top of the Benchimprint Pi and Linpack tests, and was also able to beat out the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Note 8.0.

We ran GFXBench (formerly GLBenchmark) tests off-screen, which means we're testing at a fixed resolution and getting numbers for raw GPU power. The G Pad 8.3 didn't disappoint, and even outdoes the Optimus G Pro in the less-intensive Egypt test.

But video benchmarks running at native resolution will give the most accurate portrayal of real world performance, which is why we've included the Unreal Engine 3-powered Epic Citadel benchmark. Unreal Engine is popular with mobile game makers, so it's a pretty vital test. Here is where the G Pad 8.3 failed to top our charts this time around, but still posted a respectable score of 36.3 fps, which is quite playable.
