i'm preety sure that panasonic haven't mistaken when saying-12 days! Fact is they have excellent batteries and all others are far away from that matter! Worst thing ever having cell on charger every 12-24h! They're making batteries 25 years or more! Like that's not enough? You go panasonic!

Welcome back panasonic. And for all those negative comments, keep'em to yourself's. Great to see panasonic bringing smartphone devices.

Panasonic can rival the best of them all.

this phone will be a massive fail. 4.3" qHD AMOLED with only 1150mAH? every company will never say anything bad about it's product, of course they will say this has excellent battery.

It's good to see Panasonic get back into the mix. They look to be wanting to bite into Sony's market aim of excellent upscale design with a little something extra, but not trying to be kings of the hardware race. Kudos. There's enough flimsy black slabs around.

I'm working in company which has history in making various mobile phones & accessories product for customer such as Nokia, Sony ericsson (major), Siemens, BenQ, Motorola and latest is this Panasonic- Eluga.

The manufacturing process is way difficult compared to others. And quality requirement is very high. From tooling, injection, painting, printing and etc... This phone built is very good. For painting itself takes 6 layers coating to finish with astonishing high gloss finish.

Some more interesting, some colours variants are printed with Disney Mickey Mouse logo. Pretty cute when you look at it. This phone has 6 variants of colours and all looks cool..

the battery is really bad...especially for android devices and i personally don't think the screen is that big for its dimensions..take HTC for example and how little bezel they have

Panasonic save yourself some money and don't launch this phone. The battery is killing it. You wont get half a days use out of it.

This phone is annoying!

feels kinda wrong that the bottom screen is so much space.

Does not feel solid and the camera is crap.
camera is poor like htc DHD at its time.
Battery is a joke! poor phone but it more like Mp3 player and to watch movies, not that verstile...
