Nexus 7 2013 vs LG Gpad GPE

I've had a Nexus 7 since release, and frankly I'm a bit disappointed in it.

My touchscreen is laggy, and at times the tablet is unresponsive which is surprising because the 2012 model didn't have these issues.

I've done multiple factory resets and installed firmware straight from Google to no avail.

Now that there's a GPE of a very good 8 inch tablet, I'm considering getting one. Does anyone here have one in hand yet?

I think I can live with 16 GB of storage since it has an Sd card slot.

Android central reviewed the Lg skinned version of this tablet very favorably, and this just feels like a good move to me.
