Panasonic Eluga

CNET
4 days ago
  • Summary: The Panasonic Eluga looks super-sleek and stylish but its beauty is skin deep. Under the waterproof surfaces lurks an underwhelming engine and disappointing camera. It doesn't run the latest Android operating system and has awkward buttons.
  • Cons: Android Gingerbread OS not Ice Cream Sandwich; Disappointing camera; Poor button placement; No microSD card slot.

Panasonic Eluga Review: In Depth

Recombu
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Dated by the fact it ships with Gingerbread as opposed to ICS, a few other faux pas like a solid camera with no flash and an interface that stutters as much as it glides set the Panasonic Eluga off to a shaky start. Perhaps the least forgivable shortcoming however is the minuscule amount of non-expandable user-available storage on-board (4.28GB). That said, it does offer some charming, considered UI quirks and is the best looking life-proof handset we've seen.
  • Pros: Thin, attractive design, Waterproof and dustproof, Bright display
  • Cons: Low user-available memory, No camera flash, UI stutters

Panasonic Eluga review

  • Summary: We like it, it’s better than a lot of Android phones out there, with a great, slim case that makes it feel smaller and lighter than other phones with similarly sized displays. It’s just a shame Panasonic hasn’t pushed the boat out and shipped its return to smartphones with a more polished, modern version of Android.

Panasonic ELUGA – Panasonic is back with style

Gadgetmania
20 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic ELUGA and its bigger brother, the ELUGA Power will be available in the second quarter of 2012, but the price has yet to be announced. It should cost a pretty penny, though, seeing as it’s a well-built device with a decent amount of features under the hood.

Panasonic Eluga review

Stuff.tv
7 August 2012
  • Conclusion: We love the Eluga's unique, thin design and top build quality, but we just can't forgive the shoddy placement of the power and volume keys and currently the Eluga has a few stability issues. Sure, the phone can take a dunking (more than can be said for 99 per cent of smartphones), but give us the choice and we'd much rather have expandable storage and a removable battery, as they'd be far more useful in every day life than the ability to survive a rare dip in a toilet...

  • Summary: The Panasonic Eluga is a nicely designed Android phone, but the snapper is mediocre and the interface suffers from too many issues to allow us to recommend it.
  • Pros: Neat design, lightweight, NFC support
  • Cons: Disappointing virtual keyboard, average snapper with no flash, too many force-closes and shutdowns

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Eluga is a refreshingly designed Android phone, but an average camera and glitch-ridden interface make it a difficult recommendation
  • Pros: Sleek design, ultralight build, NFC support for app-launching tags and contactless payments
  • Cons: Imperfect virtual keyboard, mediocre camera with no flash, regular force-closes and general shutdowns

Panasonic Eluga Review

itproportal.com
12 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The phone has a non-removable 1150mAh battery, sealed within the rear of the chassis. This low-powered battery gives the phone a thin design and a light-weight that will be a notable selling point. I did expect a larger battery in the handset, as the last time I saw anything this small was in the BlackBerry Curve 8520, from 2009. In our testing, we drained the battery while calling another mobile.
