The Panasonic Eluga U is a good phone without a doubt but the bigger question here is if it is worth the price. The competition has stepped up its game and the likes of Xiaomi are offering much higher specced devices for a much lower price point. We were satisfied with the performance and software build on the phone but remain skeptical about the upgrade path to future versions of Android.

The camera on the phone too was less than stellar. All in all, the Eluga U is a decent offering but we’d find it hard to recommend over the likes of the Xiaomi Mi3 or the myriad other Android phones that offer a Full HD screen, similar specs at a lower price point. The Eluga U is not a high end flagship, far from it, but it is a decent phone. We think that Panasonic needs to rethink its pricing strategy if they want to crack the Indian market. A good product just isn’t enough in a price conscious market like India.

Panasonic's latest flagship has many niggles that prevent it from provide a cohesive smartphone experience despite a few redeeming features. The Eluga U's price tag  makes it even more difficult for us to recommend. We think Panasonic needs to go back to the drawing board to create a better flagship. There's enough room in the burgeoning Indian smartphone market for lots of players to coexist peacefully, but they won't do well without good products.
