PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 4 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Beautiful, premium looking design, with a gold plated metal finish - the Eluga Arc is an outright looker, which is rare in this price category
  • Excellent build quality
  • Compact, slim, light-weight design, with a curved back which snuggles quite naturally into the palm
  • Decent display with rich colors, and a slightly warmer tint, which means there would be less strain on the eyes
  • Unique support for two-way screen orientation, allows users to start using the phone whichever way they pick it up (the screen flips upside down to adjust)
  • Panasonic UI over Android offers some useful customizations, but looks familiar enough if you are used to plain Android
  • One of the few budget smartphones with a finger print scanner

What We Didn't

  • Display visibility under sunlight could have been better
  • Sluggish overall performance
  • The software is somewhat unreliable and tends to crash often
  • Average battery life
  • Camera performance is average, and especially struggles in low-light conditions
