However, a look at the other recently launched products of Panasonic would definitely leave a different impression among buyers.

Panasonic has launched P41 and P61 recently and the devices have almost all the facilities that Eluga U offers at a relatively lesser price.

P41 comes with 5 inch IPS display and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The device sports an 8 MP auto focus with LED flash rear camera and 2 MP front camera. The smartphone with dual SIM facility also has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 32 GB through microSD card.

P61 comes with 6 inch IPS display, 8 MB rear camera with auto focus and LED flash and 2 MB front camera. The device comes with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card. The device comes with dual SIM facility. It also has a 2800mAh Lithium-Ion battery and light and proximity and accelerator.

If you have a look at the processor, P41 and P61 are powered by 1.3 GHz quad core processor and runs on Android KitKat latest version.

The advantage Eluga has that it has a 2 GB RAM and a 13 MP rear camera. Rest is almost equal to P41 and P61. Buyers needs to check whether they wanted to spend additional Rs 4000 just to get a 13 MP camera and 2 GB RAM when P41 and P61 are available at Rs 14990 and Rs 11990 respectively.
