Save $110 on the battery-friendly LG G Pad 2 10.1-inch Android Tablet

save 110 office friendly lg g pad ii 2 10 front
Big and proud, LG’s G Pad 2 10.1-inch Android tablet doesn’t pretend to be the slimmest slate on the market. Instead, this 10.1-inch slate boasts a massive 7,400mAh battery, which LG claims is the largest battery you’ll find in similarly sized tablets. Currently, Staples is offering the LG G Pad 2 10.1-inch Android Tablet for $220, a savings of $110.

Design-wise, the G Pad 2 sports a smooth, metallic body and measures just 7.8 mm thick. It weighs 17.4 oz, which makes it heavier than Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad Pro, but lighter than its 12.9-inch counterpart.

In terms of hardware, LG’s tablet marries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.26GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a MicroSD card slot. The 10.1-inch display packs a 1,920 by 1,200 pixel resolution, and rear and front-facing cameras of 5 megapixels and 2 megapixels round out the tablet’s main specs.

However, it’s the hearty 7,400mAh battery and unique software suite that makes the G Pad 2 a solid option if you value productivity.

As we noted earlier, the tablet includes QuickMemo+, an app that lets you write notes on the screen at anytime regardless of what other app may be running. There’s also a Dual Window multi-tasking mode, which splits the tablet’s screen in two for enhanced productivity. Meanwhile, a Reader mode reduces blue light output from the tablet’s screen to provide a more comfortable reading experience.

The tablet also comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office for Android Tablet, making this an ideal business tablet for an office setting. Naturally, there’s also built-in Bluetooth 4.1 and all the major flavors of WiFi.

The G Pad 2 comes with Android Lollipop pre-installed, but users should take note that it’s not upgrade-able beyond 5.1.1.

You can currently find the LG G Pad II 10.1-inch Android Tablet for $110 off at Staples or you can also purchase it from our DT Shop for $230.

Apple Deals: Save on AirPods Pro, Apple Watch Series 5, and iPad 10.2
apple watch series 5 deal best buy memorial day sale review hero 768x479 c

Discounts on Apple devices tend to be rare but whenever we do spot them, you can count on to find the best ones here. Right now, the Apple AirPods Pro, iPad 10.2, and Apple Watch Series 5 are all on sale with as much as $50 off. Hurry and snatch these deals or risk major disappointment.
AirPods Pro – $220, was $250

We weren’t entirely impressed with the standard AirPods, so when Apple announced it was going to release the souped-up AirPod Pro, we were a little skeptical. Would the company be able to deliver this time and improve on all the areas that the AirPods failed? The answer is a resounding yes. The AirPods Pro are shockingly good and are absolutely the best true wireless earbuds that you can get if you’re an iOS user. Their sound quality has improved tremendously, their noise-canceling is spectacular, and they’re extremely comfortable to use even for a long period. Right now, you can score the AirPods Pro at Verizon for $220 instead of $250.

Apple iPad 10.2 and iPad Air in the bargain bin (again) at Amazon
iPad 10.2-inch hero

If you're dying to get your hands on a brand-new iPad but loathe spending too much cash, we've got excellent news for you. The latest iPad 10.2 is back to its lowest price ever – $279 instead of the usual $329 at Amazon. If you want an even more powerful tablet that performs nearly as well as Apple's flagship iPad Pro, the cheaper iPad Air retails at a very reasonable $430. Hurry though as we're seeing limited stocks on both devices and Apple deals normally don't sit around for long.
iPad 10.2 – $279, was $329

Why get an iPad, particularly the iPad 10.2, when you can get a laptop? For starters, tablets in general are way more portable. Without a physical keyboard (which of course, has been transferred to the screen), it's easier to carry an iPad around. Plus, thanks to its A10 Fusion processor, it is more powerful than ever, more than capable of handling simple everyday tasks like surfing the internet, emailing, and document writing. If you feel like you can't do without a physical keyboard, you can always purchase Apple's Smart Keyboard to really maximize the iPad's functionality.

Hurry! Apple iPad 10.2 down to $279 at Amazon for 4th of July
amazon sale savings on apple watch laptops tvs more ipad 10 2 inch hero

As we celebrate Independence Day in the U.S., some of the best brands in tech are getting in on the action with fabulous 4th of July sales. Not to be outdone, Amazon is offering $50 off the 32GB variant of the iPad 10.2, which sees it on sale for only $279 -- down from $329. When it comes to tablets, Apple really is the master of the game, so if you’ve been thinking about investing in one for work or play, now would be a great time to take advantage of such an amazing discount (it’s rare -- very rare -- that we see tablets, let alone iPads, descend below $300).

Available in Space Gray, this is Apple’s latest version of the iPad. Compared to the previous version, the 10.2-inch screen is a nice jump, in terms of what we can see. It features an LED-backlit Multi-Touch display with IPS technology lighting up the 2160-by-1620-pixel resolution (at 264 pixels per inch). This is a big, gorgeously clear screen that will not only allow the best viewing of your work or favorite content, but is augmented support for the Apple Pencil, which opens up an entire creative world of drawing, precision, note-taking or just drawing. It also supports the Smart Connector, so you can use it with Apple’s Smart Keyboard (sold separately), which is a lifesaver on work projects.
