Though smart phones try to be one stop solution for all our needs, most of us end up having two separated devices for personal and professional use. Juggling two devices is often, a problem. The recently launched Panasonic Eluga Note might be one solution. It comes with support for 'Android for Work': a tool that helps to manage your professional and personal data, without mix-up. You can set up a dedicated work profile for business content that never mixes with your personal stuff, so IT managers can’t see or erase your photos, emails, or other personal data.
The Eluga Note, is also one of the few devices in India with an infrared sensor -- IR Blaster -- which can convert the device into a universal remote control for household electronic devices like television, air conditioner, DVD players, etc.
Panasonic classes this device under phablets, but at 142gms and just 8.1mm thick, it doesn’t look or weigh anything like a phablet and is sleek enough for single-handed operation. The 5.5 inch display is full-HD 1080x1920 pixels with a pixel density of 403ppi.
The primary camera of 16mp with F1.9 aperture, auto focus and triple LED flash is a decent performer. The front camera is only 5mp, which might not impress selfie lovers.
The Eluga Note comes with latest Android 6.0 with Panasonic’s FitHome 2.0 UI on top, which allows few gesture controls and thumb app access. It runs on a 1.3 GHz Octa-core Processor with 3 GB RAM. The 32 GB internal memory is expandable up to another 32 GB via micro SD card. The dual-SIM device supports VoLTE and packs a decent 3000 mAh battery.
For a device priced in the smartphone mid range at Rs. 13,290, the Panasonic Eluga Note packs a lot of high-end productivity features....
