If you are thinking to buy Panasonic Eluga A2 then please read this review so that you will know everything about Panasonic Eluga A2.
The brand new Panasonic Eluga A2 comes with beautiful design and classic look with an elegant body. The phone is featured in the dimension of 143.8 * 72 * 8.9 mm (5.66 * 2.83 * 0.35 inch). Despite its big battery size Panasonic Eluga A2 just weight about 167.5 gram (8.93 oz) only. The phone has two SIM card and an external micro SD card slot. The external hardware buttons like power key and volume buttons are placed on higher up on the side panel which seems not to be accessible without sifting the phone. The brushed matte tied up on the back plastic panel make the phone look like metal body which seems bold at a glance. Overall, Panasonic Eluga A2 not only fit your budget but also it fit in your hand with a classy looks.
When it comes for choosing a best smart phone then display values nothing more than other. Panasonic Eluga A2 features IPS LCD capacitive touch screen with 16M colors. The size of screen is 5 inch which is 66% screen to body ratio. What we need more than this; 5 inch screen is enough to enjoy various games, videos and more. Furthermore the resolution of screen in Panasonic Eluga A2 is 720 * 1280 pixels (294 ppi pixel density) which provide crisp look to display. The most fascinating option is it has multi touch feature supporting up to 5 fingers touch at a time. However the phone has navigation key inside which means you may end with display slightly less than 5.0 inch.
The brand new Panasonic Eluga A2 comes with delightful 4G support. GSM/ HSPA/ LTE are the technologies that are installed in Panasonic Eluga A2 however LTE is only supported by SIM 1 slot. VoLTE (Voice over LTE) support makes Panasonic Eluga A2 a one of the best smart phone in cheap price.
Panasonic Eluga A2 runs on android version 5.1 Lollipop featuring Mediatek 6735P 1.0 GHz quad core processor with two different user interface UI. The android interface looks plain like other android while secondary interface Fit Home UI gives some interesting customization options. The phone feature 3 GB RAM for multitasking which supports up to 8 apps at a time. Despite 8 GB RAM phone lags while playing heavy games as reported on the official forum of Panasonic Eluga A2. The phone has flat 16 GB internal storage which can be amazingly expanded up to 128 GB via external Micro SD slot. Finally, Panasonic Eluga A2 finished with a good storage option but an outdated android version.
We have divided the camera block into further two more heading as described below:
The primary camera of Panasonic Eluga A2 is just average i.e. of 8 MP. What we disliked about the phone is its camera. Although Panasonic Eluga A2 is one of the cheap phone but we should not compromise while choosing the phone with camera. However the 8 MP camera of Panasonic Eluga A2 comes with better sharpness and better quality with consistent color reproduction. The picture taken from Panasonic Eluga A2 in high contrast colors looks slightly blur and color don’t stand out from rest. The camera shoots video at 1080 pixel in about 30 frames per second respectively.
Similar to other high end mobile device, Panasonic Eluga A2 also feature 5 MP secondary camera which is perfect for all selfie lovers.
Overall Camera block of Panasonic Eluga A2 is somehow average.
Sound and Alert Type
Panasonic Eluga A2 features vibration, MP3 and WAV ringtones as alert types and has inbuilt loudspeaker with crystal clear sounds. Furthermore, 3.5 mm earphone jack is mounted on the top of phone to input the earphones.
Pre Installed Comms
Panasonic Eluga A2 features Wi-Fi 801.11 a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi direct and Wi-Fi hotspot. A2DP version 2.0 Bluetooth is installed in phone whereas GPS type A-GPS is installed in Panasonic Eluga A2. Furthermore, the phone has FM radio and pre installed Micro USB v2.0.
What we have noticed in the phone is its bulk battery size with heavy weight. The phone is powered by non removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery with 36 hours stand by. Mostly the battery is drained by imperfect optimization of software operating in the phone but it could be fixed after software update.
Panasonic Eluga A2 has accelerometer and proximity sensors pre installed on it. The SMS system of phone has threaded view and MMS, Email, Push Mail and IM are the messaging service installed on the phone. The browser of Panasonic Eluga A2 is featured with HTML5 with pre installed photo, video, document viewer and editor. The phone supports MP4/ H.264 video player and MP3/ WAV/ eAAC+ audio player.
