Though smartphones try to be a one-stop solution for all our needs, most of us end up having two separate devices for personal and professional use. Juggling two devices is often a problem. The recently launched Panasonic Eluga Note might provide a solution. It comes with support for ‘Android for Work’ — a tool that helps to manage your professional and personal data, without any 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.
Panasonic classes this device under phablets — at 142 grams and just 8.1 mm thick. The 5.5 inch display is full-HD 1080x1920 pixels with a pixel density of 403 ppi.
The primary camera of 16 MP with F1.9 aperture, auto focus and triple LED flash is a decent performer. The front camera is only 5 megapixels, which might not impress selfie lovers.
The Eluga Note comes with the latest Android 6.0 with Panasonic’s FitHome 2.0 UI on top. 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. 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....
