2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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

Display

  • 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)
  • Display visibility under sunlight could have been better

Software

  • Panasonic UI over Android offers some useful customizations, but looks familiar enough if you are used to plain Android
  • The software is somewhat unreliable and tends to crash often

Performance

  • Sluggish overall performance

Camera

  • Camera performance is average, and especially struggles in low-light conditions

Battery

  • Average battery life

More

  • One of the few budget smartphones with a finger print scanner
