Author’s Opinion

Panasonic Eluga Z1 and Eluga Z1 Pro, both smartphones offer very low budget specification. The difference between these 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 P22 at a price of Rs.15K and 18K.

If compared other smartphones with the same processor, Xiaomi Redmi 6 still offers a better deal at around 8K. On the other hand, there are many good options like Redmi Note 5 Pro, Realme 2 Pro, Honor 8X and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 which offers a better deal at around 15K.

Overall, According to us, spending extra 7K to 10K on MediaTek Helio P22 is just not acceptable. We don’t recommend Panasonic Eluga Z1 and Z1 Pro to our readers.
