Transcript of "Panasonic P81 review"

  1. 1. Panasonic P81 Review in pictures
  2. 2. It’s big!! Yet lightweight • Really big because of large 5.5-inch display • However, it’s quite lightweight making for very comfortable handling • Standard design at the front and in terms of ports or buttons • But the capacitive home key at the center opens Google Now with a single tap and recent apps with double tap, unlike the usual implementation
  3. 3. Following Samsung’s footprints in the design department • Features a leatherette rear panel adding to looks and grip • Prying open the cover exposes a pair of SIM card slots and a microSD card slot • The battery is also user- replaceable • Bundled along with the device is a protective flip cover and a screen guard
  4. 4. Not full HD this, but still a beautiful large display • Catering to the phablet segment, the device features a huge 5.5-inch display • With 720p resolution, pixel density count might be lower, but the display is really nice • Easily viewable under direct sunlight
  5. 5. Loaded snapper in terms of pure specs and features… • A 13-megapixel shooter at the rear • LED flash available for assisting in poor lighting conditions • Custom camera app offers a simplistic interface and loaded feature set • Provides options to modify scene mode, adjust ISO, saturation, etc. • Alongside normal image, also lets you capture HDR, panorama or GIF images • For video recording, it can shoot 1080p video at 30fps
  6. 6. … but not in the terms of quality • Results in below average images • Images lack detail and colours also seem oversaturated • Low-light shots are also not up to the mark • A 2-megapixel camera at the front can be used for video calling and clicking selfies.
  7. 7. ‘Play More’ with Panasonic’s take on Android • Runs dated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean • Right from the lockscreen and home screen to the dialler and other default apps, Panasonic has used a custom interface • Play More theme manager gives options to change wallpaper, animation, font and ringtones • Several useful options in customised apps like dialler and messages
  8. 8. It doesn’t end there… • With Gesture Play, you can unlock your device by drawing a u-shaped gesture • Ability to define more gestures for opening an app via the lockscreen, although there’s a considerable delay in the execution • Multi Play shows two apps on the same screen • However, very limited number of apps like browser, messages, etc. support this mode
  9. 9. Freebies galore • With the device, users also get premium subscriptions for apps and content • Six-months premium subscription for the popular note-taking app Evernote • Three-month membership of India Today digital magazines • Ability to download magazines and comics worth Rs 5,000 with the Readwhere app • 30-day subscription to download unlimited songs via the Hungama app
  10. 10. The roaring power of eight cores with a bit of hotness quotient • The device really shines in the performance aspect • Powered by the MediaTek MT6592 octa-core chipset with a clock speed of 1.7GHz • Supplemented by a gigabyte of RAM • No signs of slowdown no matter what we threw at it • However, it gets hot after 15 to 20 minutes of gameplay
  11. 11. Storage can suffice for your usual needs • Packed with 8GB built- in memory • Approximately 5.34GB is user-accessible • Can be further extended up to 32GB with the use of a microSD card • Unfortunately, there’s no support for USB On- the-Go
  12. 12. Your all-day companion thanks to good battery life • Sips juice from a 2,500mAh battery • Can get you through an entire working day with the regular usage • Gave decent results of little less than eight hours playback for a 720p video in our test • The Power Saver app helps in extending the battery life, when needed
  13. 13. At a glance • 5.5-inch, 1,280 x 720 pixels (267 ppi) • 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor • Mali 450 GPU • 1GB RAM • 8GB onboard storage with microSD slot • 13MP primary camera with flash, 2MP front camera • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean • 2,500mAh battery • 3G (supported on the first SIM slot), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS
  14. 14. - • Heats up quickly • Average camera Pros and cons + • Lightweight and good handling • Good display • Lag-free performance • Bundled freebies
  15. 15. ~ Rs 17,000 (online price) Pricing and verdict “With the P81, Panasonic has taken the right step and priced it well considering its specifications. Even though it faces huge competition from performance- oriented devices in this price segment, its phablet-sized display, good design and bundled freebies act as a differentiator in its favour”
