Upgraded LG G Pad II Tablet Helps You Go to Sleep Michael Kwan August 24, 2015 News What are some of the most important features you look for in your Android tablets? You want to have a pretty good display for playing Angry Birds 2 and watching movies. You want to have decent battery life that won’t have you reaching for the charger in the middle of the day. And you want a tablet that will help you go to sleep at night too. What? Yeah, that’s something the new LG G Pad II can do. As is quite plainly obvious from its name, the LG G Pad II is the successor to the original LG G Pad. The 10.1-inch Android tablet comes with the same kinds of features you can expect from nearly any other 10.1-inch tablet on the market today. It’ll get Android 5.1.1 Lollipop under the hood to accompany its Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, and sizable 7400mAh battery. You don’t get a fancy QHD display though, settling for just 1920 x 1200 pixels. But the real killer feature? Reader Mode. You know how they say that staring at a smartphone, tablet or computer screen right before bed wrecks havoc on the quality and quantity of your sleep? The optimal solution is to avoid screen time right before bedtime, but we all know that’s just not possible. I must see my Twitter feed and update my Facebook status before hitting the hay. To that end, Reader mode reduces the blue light of the backlight, which is thought to be the root cause of the “eye fatigue and blurred vision” related to screen use. This looks like it’s taking square aim at the e-readers of the world. All kidding aside, the LG G Pad II seems like a decent, albeit not terribly exciting tablet for multimedia junkies who like modern design. LG has indicated that pricing and availability will be announced at IFA 2015 early next month. Via Gizmodo Share This With The World!
