Eluga i7 is an technology demonstration from Panasonic showing that they can make worst product. It has lot of issues like touch screen hangs, ring volume goes mute every time you get a call, you cannot revive call... Etc. If you want to waste money then buy this phone

The new LG mobiles division in the making. LOL

Panasonic phones are dead

Super cheating.... There is no magnetic sensor in it as said on the specs.

Yesterday one of my familiar carpenter guy bought this phone as a the first smartphone. And I got to set up it for him. So, basically I took a demo of it about for 1 hour. So, here I am sharing my experience.

1. The build quality is good. The plastic body feels strong and premium. Size is good enough to use in one hand.

2. The back cover can open to access the battery and 3 slots. E.g. sim 1 and 2 along with the memory card. But it is tricky, if you remember Nokia 540/535, then you will get it easy way.

4. The cameras are good. Back has flash. And the front is good if there is enough light.

5. The back speaker is really loud in standard room.

6. The touch is good. And works well.

7. The back fingerprint sensor works fast (not very fast or slow, considering the price). And also the face unlock.

8. Android 9 is minimalistic and has no bloatware or custom skin. It is simple, light and fast considering the RAM (2GB).

9. Typing is smooth as Google Board is provided. So, you don't need to have stress about third party keyboard.

10. Both the SIMs supports 4G with VolTE (dual Jio Sims) and works well. You don't need to remove the battery to insert them. But has to restart the device so that it can detect them successfully.

11. The FM player works well and has a simple layout.

12. The device comes with a pre applied screen protector with another one, and a pair cheap but good in ear earphone set, a solid TPU transparent hard back cover and a charger.

Overall, at 5000 Indian Rupees, it is good deal considering you need a phone with some bit of multimedia at a very very tight price and don't want to go for a Chinese brand.

My final thought.

1. Buy it if you are a student and do tons of online classes.

2. Buy it if you need dual 4G VolTE device at very low price.

3. Buy it if you only use calls/messages and chat in whatsapp/telegram a lot.

4. Buy it you are first time smartphone user.

5. Buy it if you need another back up device to carry, if you main device is out of charge.

But don't buy,

1. If you are game junkie. This 2 GB little device will support definitely "Temple run 1/2" or "Hill climb Racing". But not games like "Free fire", "Call of duty: mobile" etc.

2. With 2 GB ram and mediatek processing power, the device can handle light multitasking like listening to FM player and chating in whatsapp. But if you are the guy who runs 5 or more apps together; then don't go for it.

3. The 16 GB in build storage with memory card support is good for downloading most of the Google apps or essential apps like train/air ticket bookings, banking apps, fitness apps, wallets etc. But don't overload it with 30/40 appps like a more powerful device, in that case it will get slow and hang frequently. As most apps now a days runs in background and uses both memory and data.

Summary: at 5000/- Indian rupees it is complete package as a phone. Comes with all the accessories which you may have to buy in another 1000/- rupees.
Best part is the removable battery.

Considering the price, build quality, brand name; I don't see there is anything to complaint.

They will ask the network providers to track the device and then it will be find by network service providers.

The screen ratio is around 2017. Screen resolution is 2017 for budget devices. But, the other specs seems back in 2015-2016 for low end or mid end smartphones.

Here is a list of brands with slow buggy software Cherry Mobile(holy cow came with Trojan and Triada banking virus) & Nokia (not a ANdroid ONE model)... Who has good? Tecno, Brown, my|phone, honor & Huawei rest of the brands? No clue these are the only ones I have tried... V-V

They also cost the same as a 2016 model would today, so... you know... there's that aspect to consider as well. And their screens are to die for (even if they're stuck in 720p world).
