Panasonic ELUGA Review

0. phoneArena posted on 17 May 2012, 09:31

The launch of the Panasonic ELUGA is a notable event as it marks the return of the company to the European and U.S. markets. For quite a while, primarily the Japanese got to enjoy the funky handsets that the manufacturer delivered, leaving us wondering what we could be missing on. Well, the time has come to check out a Panasonic handset once again. In terms of specs, the Panasonic ELUGA comes with hardware pretty similar to what the Motorola RAZR has to offer: a dual-core OMAP4430 chipset, 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, and all of that encased inside a body you can slide through a pin's eye (metaphorically speaking). Seems promising enough, so let's fire this baby up and see how it performs in real life.

The lack of a camera flash is just so oddball. The phone looks good, and deserves better. On the other hand, if this is just the first model, hopefully ones to follow will be better
One thing I also like is that it's a somewhat rugged phone without the rugged phone looks. As a Panasonic Toughbook owner, I am surprised at how svelte the phone is

I wouldn't have a problem if i bought this phone but a battery with 1150 mAh is very weak. My phone with a 600mhz cpu that costed 90 euros and has almost the same battery capacity 1200 mAh

It kills me whenever i see such a cool looking phone that sucks when the best phone available is so ugly. (yes, you SGS3).
