Panasonic's brand recall is fairly good in the home entertainment segment, and the company is now banking on this reputation to help it break into the smartphones market. It is hoping for success by aggressively marketing its smartphones to the masses - we say masses because the flagship (read "most expensive") phone in its lineup, the P81, is priced below Rs. 20,000.

Panasonic P81 Summary

The Panasonic P81 performs well, has great battery life and a good 13-megapixel camera too. But, we think the software leaves a lot to be desired. The Gesture Play features played up by Panasonic in television advertisements is mostly a gimmick and doesn't work as advertised.

  • INCOMPLETE INFORMATION WITH SOME TECNICAL MISTAKE
    Nob SJW (Jun 24, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    full information of P81 is not provided. Also the information given is incorrect about sim one and two. One is 3G but the second one is 2G not 3G. Please correct me if i am wrong. The name of processors is not mentioned. Yes they are chinese procesor MEDIATEC. Consider : Why did you choose this rating ? What did you like or dislike? Who would you recommend this product to?

  • Flop Model
    Vinit Rajput (Jun 24, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I have been using this phone since last 2 Years, its performance is getting bad to worst. 1GB of RAM but only 200MB is usable.

  • Useless phone
    Mahesh KT (Jun 2, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    This is a useless phone for the price tag. This could have been one of the flagship phones by Panasonic. But its strange and surprising to see Panasonic not investing any more to upgrade the phone to Kitkat or Lollipop. The 1GB RAM is not at all sufficient and the phone struggles to multitask and most of the time the RAM hovers around 85% useage with just apps like WhatsApp and basic phone running. The 8 cores do not function in tandem and most of the times you can see only core0 and core1 in action and all other cores inactive. Pity, the phone is not optimized for efficient processing. Am terribly regretting my decision of buying this phone. Utter waste of money.

  • best in 20 k range
    deepthi selvaraj (Jun 1, 2019) on Flipkart
    I have ordered this phone on flipkart and got it delivered in 4 days. This phone is far better compared to Sony, HTC, Nokia and Samsung. Tired of using these phones and gave a try with Panasonic. And feel my choice is very much correct and satisfied with my new Panasonic p81.

  • Whatsapp?
    Krishna (Jun 1, 2019) on Flipkart
    For the customers who have already bought this awesome phone, does it support whatsapp? I'm planning to buy this mobile and i have seen that in person. this is a awesome phone with premium look and light weight. The camera was good and i could see the texts clearly without noise even after zooming the pictures. It would be a deal breaker if it does not have whatsapp. Please clarify. thanks.

  • Phone with great feature and some cons
    MOHSIN INAMDAR (Jun 1, 2019) on Flipkart
    I have bought this phone on 29-May-14. Its really amazing to have such phone. I have used almost all brand phones but best feature of this phone is its diplay & octacore processor. Camera is also amazing snap are not etting blurred even after u zoomout those snaps. only problem in snaps will be when u took pics inside ur home/office. otherwise in daylight pics are very good. another best thing is that its processor, apps are downloading on wifi within 20-30 seconds. any data would be sharing through bluetooth within 5-10 second which is not possible on other phones. But the problem is that when u attache phone to laptop for charging it will take more time

  • Great phone with Great specs........ But the difference in Price
    Joe (Jun 1, 2019) on Flipkart
    I purchased it from other place as the price difference is more than 2000. The phone is a great one and I like it. Flipkart, ur initial advantage was price factor. Now, low price is an old thing for your site. Please fix the matter. Otherwise, u r a great site. Also, plz throw out the bad sellers
