In India, its rival Samsung, Sony, and LG have the large portfolio of smartphones. Even after two years of completion since the first launch, the Japanese giant has been struggling to find its feet in the fasted growing smartphone market India. It is too early to predict Panasonic’s fortune in the highly competitive market, which gains a new player with new sets of smartphones almost every month.

Indian smartphone market has been controlled by Samsung at upper side while the Micromax is the undefeated king for low budget smartphones. Panasonic has to something unusual and innovative to make a dent in the rat race.

Panasonic started its journey with the launch of the “P” series smartphone, followed by the “T” series smartphones. Now by following the market trend, it is building a unique category of elegant smartphones called the Eluga. Panasonic’s Eluga series is based on the concept of Galaxy, Canvas, or Xperia series smartphones. In coming days, the Eluga series will be a dedicated category premium smartphone from Panasonic.

There is a random view that Panasonic does good designing of smartphones. Such continuation would result in handsome success in the coming days.

Slim Panasonic P51

The P51’s body is coated with premium rubber that gives sufficient grip, smoothness and undefined fall protection. I am not impressed with the overall outer look of the smartphone. It lacks space management on the front screen panel. If you look at the bottom of the screen, there are unwanted unused spaces are left. The smartphone has a thickness of 8.5 mm while smart construction doesn’t result in making it heavy as its total weight limited within 135g.

Panasonic P51 Review Specifications and Rating

The P51 sports a 5 inch screen with HD resolution and pixel density count go up to 294 PPI. The display does produce sharp text, 16 million vivid colors, and appropriate brightness. Also, we find Dragon Trail Glass protection and Oleophobic coating to secure from dust, water, and accidental fall.

Though it was launched with Android Jellybean, but the same has been upgraded to Android Kitkat. New device features stock Android Kitkat experience without tweaks from Panasonic. While some of the applications are preinstalled and locked by the OS, users get listed social media apps such as Facebook, WeChat, Twitter and To-do management.

1 GB RAM provides much-needed smoothness while processing is boosted by MediaTek four cores processors with speeds of 1.2 GHz each. While you can expand its memory up to 32 GB and still there is 2GB installed memory to store your memories in multimedia format.

Panasonic uses its inherent technology to enhance audio and camera output. Watching a movie with extremely loud sound is indeed a pleasant experience. Its 8MP does good shootings in daylight as well as in Indore. The primary camera can record FHD video that is 1080P resolution with good details and distortion free sound.

2500 mAh battery is a feel good factor. Though it hosts extra core, still battery longevity goes on for two days on moderate usages. According to official listing, it has a standby of 7 days on 2G network.

Without NFC and GLONASS option, the P51 offers USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4 and Wi-Fi for device-to-device connectivity. Its dual SIM port supports Dual 3G connectivity. Read also Ultra Slim Panasonic Eluga 4G Smartphone Under 11750 Rupees.

Panasonic Eluga U with Full HD Recording Feature

The delayed launch of Eluga U in India didn’t favor in creating a buzz among buyers. It is not an eye catcher device and doesn’t look special due to its regular rounded design. Right edge houses volume and power key, then SIM card and MicroSD card slots are at the left edge. There is three keys navigation at the bottom of the front panel while the front facing camera residing at the top and rear camera placed at the back.

Panasonic Eluga U Review Specifications and Rating

The Eluga U sports a 5 inch HD display in High Definition resolution with pixel density of 294 PPI. Despite being IPS display, viewing angle is not so impressive and visibility is affected in direct sunlight. In general, video playback has a pleasant experience.

The Eluga U runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.2. Panasonic has used stock android with in-house developed Fit HOME UI that brings easy launcher which can be operated by a single hand. Panasonic’s Android-based user interface brings app launcher overly with the app icon tend to pop up on double tap on the home screen.

It packs 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front facing camera. The primary camera does a good job in daylight but indoor and low-light shooting is not so impressive. Also, it can record impressive FHD video that is in production and publishing quality.

The mobile phone is powered by Snapdragon 400 processor, which renders four core with 1.2 GHz speed. At storage side, we find 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory and 32 GB expandable memory through a MicroSD card.

The Panasonic has enhanced sound output as it produces really loud sound. And, FM player offers noise-free recording and auto search FM channels. It comes with 2500 mAh battery which indeed gives decent backup. Proper optimization of screen brightness and management of active unused connection could add extra backup time. The overall power pack craft does justice with rich graphical games. You will not experience any lag or frame drop.

Panasonic P61 with 6inch HD Screen

The P61 and P81 are two fast moving smartphones from Panasonic account. I am a big admirer of phablet type smartphones and so I consider P61 my pick from the current list of top 5 smartphones. Panasonic got in fast moving phablet category with the launch P61.

The Mobile phone features 6 Inch HD display and 16 million colors. With a good brightness level, the display looks vivid and offers good viewing angle and color reproduction. Touch seems to be very fast and even regular usages don’t result in delayed and freeze response.

Panasonic is shipping the P61 with Android 4.4 Kitkat. You will experience the sheer smoothness of stock android that is powered 1GB hosted RAM. Though there is 16 GB inbuilt memory still user can opt for an SD card up to 32 GB.

Budget Smartphones processor leader MediaTek provides the quad-core processor, which boosts the mobile phone with a speed of 1.3 GHz each core. Panasonic’s intelligent craft results in lower consumption of hardware recourses so you will have lag free and flexible navigation throughout the phone.

The P61 comes with 2800 mAh battery. There are complaints regarding poor battery backup. During my test, I was quite satisfied with battery backup. In the camera department, we get 8 MP primary and 2 MP Selfie camera. The camera is designed to record FHD video with 1080P resolution. Under the connectivity option, the smartphone lists dual SIM, USB 2.0, BT 4.0 and Wi-Fi.

It is a good looking device with rubbished coating on back and on both edges. You fill enough grips in holding that smokes the fear of a sudden fall. I would consider it a lightweight device since with battery, gross weight is just 174 gram and 8.2 mm thickness too.

Please note smartphone battery is still in development mode. An improper setting would result in faster draining of the battery. I would recommend the “Battery Booster” app for advanced setting to control battery consumption. Also, we have received some complaints regarding low sound output. The “Volume Booster” is another app to solve the problem related to volume output. Read also Panasonic Video Recording Camera in India under 25000 Rupees.

Panasonic P81 with Powerful Processor

The P81 is another fast-selling smartphone from Panasonic account. Due to its 5.5 inch display, it falls in the phablet category. At the back, you will find leather finishing with a rough design, but it doesn’t collect fingerprint smudge. At the edge, there is a thin metal to balance front and back panel while control buttons are in metallic design.

Panasonic P81 Specifications

Its screen features an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 Pixel wherein the pixel density is 267 PPI with 16 Million colors limit. Panasonic tweaks the Android jellybeans with its own user interface which host one gesture control.

Some Key Gesture Movements are listed here : “U” = Unlock; “S” = SMS

To unlock phone screen, you just need to draw “U” shape on the screen. Initially, you find it wired, but slowly-slowly after getting used to it – it works as a handy navigation concept. Moreover, there is more reshuffle with apps that aren’t cool while you switch from a natural Android OS environment. For Panasonic, it would be wiser to stick with stock Android while adding extra creativity and innovation to build the best one.

The P81 is at peak as far processing power is concerned. MediaTek Octa Core processor with 1.7 GHz clock speed is sufficient to deal with any challenges put across. 1 GB RAM doesn’t go along in balancing processor requirement of random memory. Besides high benchmark test results, the P81 is a sluggish free phablet. During some rich graphics, gaming, we didn’t experience lag and frame drops. However, you would be still hackled with limited RAM.

Users get a share of approx 5 GB out of 8GB hosted memory onboard. Further, you can expand flash memory storage up to 32 GB with a MicroSD card.

Under camera section, there is 13 MP rear and 2 MP front facing or selfie camera. Its camera UI is simple, fast and easy operation. The primary camera is joined with Single LED and enabled with FHD recording. 13MP camera brilliance shows in daylight while you can shoot images and video with good details, sharp contrast, and balanced brightness. However, indoor is shooting wasn’t quite satisfied. Its Single LED releases excessive light results in the capture of whiter images.

2500 mAh battery is one more plus point as we were completely satisfied with one and half days of backup on medium usages. Panasonic earns appreciate from my team for the craft of the P81. During our long hour multitasking and gaming, it did get heated up which is a natural problem with an Indian brand Smartphones.

Under connectivity option, you will get a USB 2.0, Faster Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and Dual Micro SIM. Buyers get a free flip cover and a screen guard in the Sales box.

Reliable Panasonic P41 in Low budget

The P41 although is a good smartphone but slightly overpriced at this time. In my opinion, the correct price for the smartphone is close to 9000, which is 2000 rupees higher than the current selling price 11000 rupees.

Panasonic P41 Review Specifications and Rating

As like the P81, black rubber covers its back and edges. It is just 136 gram heavy and 9.7 mm thick too. Coming to the display of this smartphone, we find qHD display measures in 5 inch screen size. It is fueled with Latest version Android Kitkat.

The mobile phone is powered by 1.3 GHz Quad Core MediaTek processor alongside 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory.
