Panasonic Eluga Review

Panasonic Eluga

Panasonic Eluga marks the return of the manufacturer to the phone market. Eluga (elegant user oriented gateway) may turn some heads with its tough IP57-certified chassis, which can withstand an immersion in 3 feet water for half an hour. Just 103 grams and 7.8mm thick, the phone is one of the lightest and slimmest in the market today. The Panasonic Eluga sports a 1GHz TI OMAP dual core processor, 4.3” qHD display, 8Mp rear-facing camera, 8GB of onboard storage, NFC and 4G (LTE).

The dual-core processor should handle most web content, apps and Flash content easily, while the camera offer an overall good result. Apart from the plasticky buttons, the phone looks and feels like a premium product. Unfortunately the battery life is rather disappointing with 1150mAh battery. Panasonic managed to add clever touches to the Android interface with unique photo gallery and camera app. There’s a dedicated NFC app and there seems to be no custom widgets of note. Overall, you should like Eluga better than many other mid-range Android smartphones in the market.
