Summary: The P51’s launch price of Rs 26,990 put many of us off; since on paper it seemed nothing more than a better built Canvas HD . Even taking into consideration the premium for the brand name, it was still overpriced. Thankfully, Panasonic quickly dropped the price and you can now find it for just Rs 21,500. This automatically makes it a better choice compared to the Samsung Galaxy Grand.
Summary: For what is Panasonic's first serious effort at making a proper smartphone, the P51 is a very good device. The performance is stable, but the real attractions are the good display and the relatively untouched user interface, leaving it as close to pure Android as possible. The dual-SIM feature is a major added advantage, for someone who doesn't like carrying two phones.
Pros: Good display, Battery life doesn't give panic attacks, Built very well, Quick performance, Minimal tweaks to Android
Cons: Feels rather big in the hand, Future Android updates' status unknown, Just 4GB internal storage is less
Conclusion: The Panasonic P51 is available for Rs 22,400. For this price, the handset packs in a sharp and vibrant screen. The phone's design is quite pleasant, and the build quality is also very good. Moreover, its camera is impressive and there's nothing to complain about its music quality.
Pros: Excellent screen; Sturdy build; Very good camera; Dual-SIM functionality.
Cons: Paltry internal storage; Lock button not easily accessible.
