UnBoxing and Hands on Video
Built Quality and Design
When we come to the built of the device, the best thing i like in the whole device is the look and feel and its easy handling the only drawback in the design is that after it is too handy they have used on screen back buttons, where as they can make it them as capacitive backlit buttons as it will increase the screen size.
As they are only having 4.7″ screen size after adding on screen buttons it becomes 4.5 which looks quit small while using it.
At the back they have a 8MP rear camera with a large golden color wing which just attract you towards it. below it you are having a LED flash which gives decent performance, finger print sensor works pretty fine, just like the other devices which we are getting these days response time is good and works fine most of the time no complains regarding it.
Below that there is Panasonic brand logo and Eluga written which is the name of the series. After that there is decent speaker below that.
When we come to the top they are offering 3.5mm audio jack and IR blaster, we have not checked the earphone performance as well as the IR blaster application, hope they have added all the devices list on to the application of IR blaster else it is of no use.
When we come to bottom side of the device it is having a normal Micro USB port and beside there it is having a Primary mic and nothing else. it has a curvy design and is only available in GOLD color Variant. Hopefully in future they will add some new color line up in the future.
When we come to another side of the device it is having Volume rockers and below that the power lock key, which gives quite good haptik feedback. There is no patterned like feel on those buttons but it doesn’t matter as the buttons are quite tactile and can easily be pressed. On another side it is having a Hybrid Sim Tray which can handle Dual Sim or One Sim and One Micro SD Card depending what you gonna use over there and it is expandable upto only 32 GB.
When we come to the camera performance it is quite decent, clarity it good and the video i have shot from this device is listed below the maximum shooting will take place at 1080p which is good. When we try to focus on the subject, it is really very good and speedy but there is no manual controls over there.
Hardware & Performance
When we come to the performance there is no lag in the UI while i was using it, the more we can only find once we will receive the device in our hand. when we come to the battery it comes with 1800 mAh. i know want you are thinking it is very low but they have mentioned that they have installed some optimization using which better will easily last for a day, but i doubt on it.
When we come to the screen they are offering is 4.7″ HD IPS Display which is 2.5D Curve which looks good but doesn’t matter for the consumers a lot while purchasing. The Processor it comes is Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2 GHz which is a 2 year old processor i don’t know why they have not upgraded it yet. The GPU it is having is Adreno 306 again a old one but games will work fine on it.
It is a dual sim Hybrid Sim Tray and is expandable upto 32GB only. Rest all the Details Specs are being listed below just check it out.
The Device Box comes with USB cable, Charger, Earphones (Finally) user manual, sim ejector tool and a screen guard also.
