Description

Panasonic ELUGA Power is the second Android smartphone in the company's ELUGA lineup. It is a premium Android handset, and by the looks of it, the ELUGA Power will rival devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note and the LG Optimus Vu. That is because its front is occupied by a massive 5-inch display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. Inside it we see a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, so performance is expected to be top notch. And that is not bad for a device with a waistline of just 9.6 millimeters. The 8-megapixel camera on the back of the Panasonic ELUGA Power does not carry a LUMIX branding like previously speculated, but that doesn't mean that its photos and videos will look bad. Providing the juice is a 1,800mAh battery that can quick-charge up to 50 percent in only 30 minutes, according to Panasonic. Last but not least, NFC support is in tow, and the device's 8 gigabytes of on-board storage can be expanded by up to 32 additional gigs thanks to its microSD card slot. Running the show is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which comes out of the box.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
