Panasonic ELUGA (dL1), análisis

 

Llega el momento de hacer balance tras estos días de prueba con el Panasonic ELUGA dL1 y la sensación generalizada es agridulce: Por un lado nos atrae muchísimo su exquisito diseño minimalista de delgadísimo corte, el buen hacer de su pantalla OLED...

Panasonic Eluga

 

Welcome to Panasonic's first attempt to crack the increasingly competitive world of Android phones outside of Japan. Its efforts have crystallized into a plastic slab that had a curious appeal when we first handled it at Mobile World Congress a few...

Stylish, waterproof design ; Respectable 4.3-inch AMOLED display

Pitiful built-in storage ; Underperforming processor ; Buggy software ; Android Gingerbread lives on

Panasonic's done some things right: the design here is slick and the screen's a good performer, but underwhelming specifications and temperamental software will leave it struggling to claim fans.

Panasonic ELUGA Review

 

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...

Catchy looks, slim and lightweight ; Resistant to dust and water damage ; NFC

Low in-call audio quality ; Poorly designed physical buttons ; No LED flash ; Below average battery life ; Gingerbread at launch

Style over substance” – this is the idea around which the Panasonic ELUGA has been designed. It is the slim profile and low weight combined with resistance to dust and water damage that make this smartphone stand out. However, the poor audio quality,...

Panasonic Eluga review

 

Slimline and waterproof Android smartphone

Slim ; Bright display ; 8MP camera ; 720p HD video shooting

Poor battery life ; No ICS ; Volume too low ; Occasional lagginess

The Panasonic Eluga is the first smartphone to arrive since the Japanese electronics manufacturer announced its plans to shift over 1.5 million handsets by the end of March 2013, following its re-entry to the European market.

Panasonic Eluga

 

A sleek-yet-rugged Android phone that is waterproof, dustproof and light, with some decent specs to boot.

Waterproof ; Slim design ; Compatible with Lumix cameras

Ships with Gingerbread ; Not the brightest screen

The Eluga features a 1GHz dual-core processor with only 8GB storage on bnoard and with no option to expand this relatively meagre offering. The phone features an 8MP camera and can connect to a compatible Lumix camera over Wi-Fi, to relay the camera's...

Panasonic Eluga

 

Alluring but all round performance is average

Svelte and lightweight; Android OS left fairly clean; key features kept simple

Fiddly button placement; can be slow; screen lacks detail; video lacks sharpness

We’re left a little underwhelmed by the Eluga. Bar the waterproof angle, it’s a pretty run-of-the-mill phone that does little to separate itself from the pack.

Thin, attractive design ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Bright display

Panasonic Eluga review

 

We review the Panasonic Eluga, a slick-looking dual core Android smartphone, which is the first Panasonic smartphone to arrive in the UK for quite some time

Nice visual design, Great screen,decent camera, Dust and water resistant,Thin,Lightweight

No camera flash, Slow and unstable interface,Awkward button placement, Low storage capacity, No micro SD

Not a bad phone, but not great either. For what it is the price seems a bit much
