I expected more from the Eluga, as a first entry back into the European mobile phone market, knowing what Panasonic is capable of elsewhere in the world. There is a high cost attached to the device of £335, which seems quite steep considering the...

The Panasonic Eluga has an unusual array of features – offering NFC support could see it gain popularity as NFC becomes more widespread. But the mediocre snapper and the problem with glitches are a serious issue. This is a beautifully designed...

The Panasonic Eluga is super stylish and a decent performer too, with dual core processor and a fine 4.3-inch touchscreen. The eight-megapixel camera could produce slightly better pictures but the waterproofing is a boon -- vogueish and tough too,...

The Panasonic Eluga marks the Japanese giant's return to the European smartphone market. And while the Panasonic Eluga impresses with its high quality build and graceful good looks, it disappoints on a number of fronts and is not the return to form...

We were hoping for just a little more. The Eluga doesn't embarrass itself, with a subtle, appealing design and a capable screen. But while it can shrug off watery dangers, it can't do the same to serious software hiccups and missing elements --...

“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...

The Panasonic Eluga looks super-sleek and stylish but its beauty is skin deep. Under the waterproof surfaces lurks an underwhelming engine and disappointing camera. It doesn't run the latest Android operating system and has awkward buttons. Unless...

The P-04D is incredibly slim and smooth; it's almost like it was designed for the express purpose of sliding easily in and out of pockets. One of the first things you notice when you pick the device up is how tiny the bezel is — particularly...

Per il prezzo a cui è venduto, di certo non è uno degli smartphone più attraenti ad oggi sul mercato. Ha un buon design, un ampio display ed è waterproof, ma alcune pecche che non lo fanno emergere nel più difficile mercato di...

Una vez tenemos en las manos este Panasonic Eluga, la sensación de ligereza a la par que robustez son inmediatas, y su pantalla de 4,3” OLED luce estupenda, sin apenas reflejos y un alto nivel de luminosidad.Al tratarse de un panel de...

Se dovessimo per forza di cose esprimere un giudizio riguardo a questo primo smartphone Panasonic dedicato anche al mercato europeo il nostro voto sarebbe per il momento un "rimandato". Non si tratta di una bocciatura; il terminale offre nel complesso...

Das ELUGA überzeugt mit seinen kompakten Abmessungen und vor allem mit der geringen Bautiefe. Bis auf die zu spitzen Gehäuseecken liegt es sehr gut in der Hand und ist sauber verarbeitet. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Tests, in denen mangelnde...
