Author’s Opinion

Panasonic Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro, both smartphones offer a good amount of features like AI Arbo App, Infrared Face Unlock and Wireless charging support (which is not seen at this price range). The difference between both smartphones is just RAM and storage variants. Apart from that, both smartphones are identical.

But when it comes to pricing, Panasonic is new Samsung. The budget range processor like MediaTek Helio P60 at a price of Rs.23K and 27K.

If compared other smartphones with the same processor, Realme 1 still offers a better deal at around Rs. 10K. On the other hand, there are many good options like Redmi Note 5 Pro, Realme 2 Pro and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 which offers a better deal at around 15K.

Overall, According to us, spending extra Rs. 13K to 17K on MediaTek Helio P60 is just not acceptable. We don’t recommend Panasonic Eluga X1 and X1 Pro to our readers.
