Panasonic is one of the names that cross your mind when you’re looking to buy a plasma TV or an air-conditioner, but certainly not a smartphone. So when the company announced it was entering the smartphone rat race, we couldn’t help but feel apprehensive about how it would manage to break the stronghold of emerging brands like Micromax and Karbonn. The P51 is Panasonic's first attempt and after a rather shaky start due to inflated pricing, the smartphone is now back on everyone’s radar after a price drop. The phone competes directly with the Samsung Galaxy Grand as far as features are concerned and also goes up against the HTC One S, an older but still very relevant handset.
Design and build
The P51 has that typical "phablet" form factor. The 5-inch display has a generous bezel all round, which increases the size of the handset even further. There’s a lot of excess space at the bottom that could have been avoided since there aren’t any capacitive buttons. The sides and the entire back has a smooth rubberised coating, which feels nice to hold while offering good grip too. The back is completely sealed off, so all the slots for the microSIM and SD card are placed on the side, protected by flaps. The volume rocker and power button are placed rather inconveniently on the top, making it difficult to reach.
Very good build and finish
Slim and sleek design
Easy to navigate UI
Media player is strictly average in terms of features
