It’s hard not to think about Apple when it comes to tablets, but not everyone wants to spend a few hundred dollars just for an iPad to surf the web and watch videos on. So if your tablet needs are relatively basic, then you will be interested to learn that Sprint has a new tablet for you in the form of the LG G Pad F2 8.0.

We know it’s not exactly the easiest name to remember, and neither is it a particularly powerful tablet, but we reckon it should be good enough to get the job done and then some. For starters we’re looking at an 8-inch WXGA 1280×800 display and the tablet will also be packing a MediaTek MT6750 chipset clocked at 1.5GHz.

There will be 2GB of RAM accompanying it along with 16GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via microSDXC up to 2TB, if you need that much storage. We’re also looking at a decently-sized 3,000mAh battery, a 5MP rear-facing camera with 4x digital zoom, a 5MP front-facing camera, and it will come with Android 7.1 Nougat preinstalled.

As for price, we’re looking at $150 if you buy it outright, but if you go by Sprint’s 24-month installment plan, it’ll cost nothing upfront and a little over $6 a month for the next two years. Details on how to purchase the tablet can be found on Sprint’s website.
