Panasonic Eluga C Review
Panasonic are here again guys! This time they released the Panasonic Eluga C, a unique smartphone with a 3-side bezel-less display. It’s sort of what we have seen on Sharp’s Aquos phones and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix, but not quite. The device is not their flagship though, as it is a midrange device for the middle-class individual. Yes, the phone is quite affordable, so let us know if you will be getting it from the review below.
Panasonic Eluga C DESIGN
A beautiful smartphone, the Eluga C exudes class and uniqueness. Covered in an all-metal unibody with glass, the new device is an attention-grabbing a smartphone. It is available in two beautiful colours, Blue and Soft Pink. Blue for masculine, Soft Pink for feminine, perfect right?
The smartphone is a little too bulky, measuring 8.7mm slim and weighs close to 200g. The fingerprint scanner was spotted at the front, disrupting a chance for a full bezel-less look.
Panasonic Eluga C DISPLAY
Eluga C boasts of a unique 3-side bezel-less display and an unnecessary physical home button. If not for the home button which doubles as a fingerprint sensor, this device would have been more bezel-less than the iPhone X.
The 5.5-inch smartphone sports an S-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a 720 x 1280 pixels screen resolution. The 16:9 ratio screen has a 267ppi density and 80.5% screen-to-body ratio. Definitely an impressive screen to body ratio on a midrange device, but the bezels below needs to go too.
HARDWARE and SOFTWARE
It doesn’t just look like a powerhouse, it works like one too. Under the hood is a MediaTek MT6750T chipset clocking at 1.5GHz Octa-core Cortex-A53. The overall graphics is powered by a Mali-T860MP2 GPU, for multitasking, it boasts of 4GB RAM.
Save as many files as you want on the 64GB storage space, which is upgradeable to 256GB using microSD. Panasonic Eluga C runs on 7.0 Nougat OS.
Panasonic Eluga C CAMERA
The horizontally placed dual rear camera on the Eluga C is one of its highlights. The 13MP + 5MP camera strategically mounted at the back of the device brought out a daring look. Both rear cameras on the Eluga C open with aperture f/2.2 lenses. The camera also comes with photo enhancing features like autofocus, LED flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus and face detection.
While at the front, there’s a 5MP selfie camera with f/2.2 lenses as well.
The Panasonic Eluga C is powered by a 3000mAh Non-removable battery.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Panasonic Eluga C is available for pre-order for just $199, that’s about N70,000 – N90,000.
