LG G Pad 8.3

IFA

One of the more intriguing features of the LG G Pad 8.3 is its ability to pair up with the LG G2 for more than just tethering. In fact, the "Q Pair" feature is supposed to eventually work with phones made by manufacturers other than LG. That's for another day though. Today, we're taking a brief look at what it looks like when a call comes in on a phone and is then shared with the G Pad tablet.

The idea is that the two devices are tethered, with the call coming in to the phone. But as the phone rings, you also get a pop-up on the tablet, allowing you to take the call, decline it outright, or decline it with an automated response. It looks good, it's dead simple to use — and it's really something we've not seen anyone else do before.

Again, what really makes this interesting is that Q Pair will eventually be a standalone app, and so you should be able to pair the tablet with any number of phones. We just have to wait a little bit for that still. (In fact, we still have to wait on the tablet, for that matter.)

We'll withhold judgment on the speed of this process until we try it out in a more subdued environment, but this video should give you a good idea of how it works.
