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 review


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

An alluring exterior and simple interface but all-round performance is average

Panasonic Eluga review


The Eluga looks the part – even underwater – but Panasonic's first phone for the UK will need to compete with powerful Android rivals

A gorgeous-looking waterproof handset, marred by a weak spec sheet for the price

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 have stayed out of the western phone market for a while now with their last foray being the MX7 in 2005 with a 320x240 display and a dashing clamshell form factor. With the Eluga however comes…

Thin, attractive design ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Bright display

Panasonic Eluga Review By


The Panasonic Eluga is a nicely designed Android phone, but the snapper is mediocre and the interface suffers from too many issues to allow us to recommend it.

Neat design, lightweight, NFC support

Disappointing virtual keyboard, average snapper with no flash, too many force-closes and shutdowns

Panasonic Eluga review


The Eluga might not be Panasonic's first phone handset but it is the first the company has produced.

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
