Panasonic launched today the mid-range Eluga I in India. The phone is a direct competitor to the highly popular Asus Zenfone 5 and features similar specs. It's built around a 5" IPS display of 720p resolution giving it a pixel density of 294 ppi.
Under the hood of the Panasonic Eluga I is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, which run Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The internal storage is 8GB and is expandable by up to 32GB with a microSD card.
The dual-SIM smartphone measures 73.6 x 147.1 x 9mm and weighs 155 grams. Basic connectivity is covered with 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. At the back, the Eluga I features an 8MP snapper with LED flash that records 1080p videos. Below the removable cover, there's a 2,000mAh battery.
The Eluga I retails for $177 (INR 10,990), which is a tad more expensive than the Asus Zenfone 5 selling for $161 (INR 9,999). We're yet to see if Panasonic's offering is going to prove itself a winning formula for the highly competitive Indian market.
I agree with your comment. I am not in favour of any specific brand. I want a smartphone with a good battery life. Look at Moto G 2nd Gen, its has good specification, but again its packed with just only 2070 mah battery. I was going to buy it soon ...
What I dislike about Lenovo (and many other brands) is their lack of support for non-standard frequencies. Yes, it is true that 900/2100 MHz is standard for 3G. But... here, for example, we have some telecoms on 900, some on 850, some on 1900, s...
Yes, this phone is a crap too. Checkout lenovo s660 and p780! ;)
