Flipkart is obviously not far behind in all this; in fact, it is at par and has launched the Panasonic P85 and Panasonic Eluga Ray.

    Flipkart Exclusive Launch:

    One thing you should keep in mind about the Panasonic Eluga Ray and Panasonic P85 is that it will be available only on Flipkart. You can purchase the phone from any other website. These phones are just Flipkart exclusive launch and hence shall be available only there.

    The best part about both these phones is that they are very cost efficient. Getting a phone with 4000MAh battery for just Rs 8000 is no matter of joke. Both the phones have quite some decent features including a good camera and is a true value for money.

    The Panasonic Eluga Ray starts at Rs 8999 and the Panasonic P85 starts at Rs 6499.

    The Panasonic Pathway:

    Quite some phone companies including Samsung and OnePlus have already steadied their feet in the Indian phone market. Panasonic has been hoping for the same, and hence are bringing out quality phones for their Indian customers. Since the cost of Panasonic phones is not much, they are for the middle-class Indian people.

    The key competitors of Panasonic at the present moment are Gionee, Samsung, Xiaomi and some other phone companies. With their phones priced at approximately the same price, all that differs is that tiny bit of quality of workmanship in the phones.

    Bright Features:

    Panasonic P85:


    One of the most important reasons as to why you should buy this phone is because of its hardware. With 1Ghz quadcore processor and a 2GM RAM, the phone surely will not lag. And with the tag of Panasonic, you can be rest assured about the quality.


    The battery of this phone is something which will never let you down. With a 4000MAh capacity battery, the phone will surely go on for a whole day with full charge. The battery is non-removable, and hence charges faster than others as well.


    Other than battery and performance, the phone is very sleek and good looking as well. It is just 5 inches, so you do not have to worry about carrying a huge phone which does not fit in your pocket.

    Lightweight phone

    Another reason to buy this phone is that it very light. It is not heavy and will not sit all day in your pocket reminding you have a phone. Weighing just 146.70 grams and dimensions of 145.00 x 72.20 x 9.35, you can be rest assured that you will turn heads when you pass with your phone.

    Panasonic Eluga Ray


    When we hear phone, the first question we ask is about the processor. Ask all you want here, because you will surely get positive reviews! With 3GB RAM and a processor of 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6737 under 9000, this is the real deal folks.


    Of course the camera is not the best, but it is much better than those phones which are under 9000. The phone is a true value for money, and 12 MP rear camera delivers quite some good quality photos. The selfies come out decent as well with a 5 MP camera.


    For all the travel freaks out there, this phone is packed. For a phone under 9000, the phone has all the sensors including a GPS, compass magnetometer, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and barometer. Sounds cool right?


    People who break phones! The first advice we will give you is, don’t break your phones. But if that is hard for you to follow (someone like me), then we suggest you buy this amazing phone. This phone is both sassy and durable, and will not break even if it falls. Of course, before that make sure you have a tempered glass and a cover on!

    There are of course some cons of the phone, and just so you understand it better; here they are. The phone is not built on metal but plastic. The looks are good, but metal finish adds to the flavor. Display is not protected by gorilla glass and that is the main disadvantage. The battery takes long to charge, but gives you a pretty decent battery backup.

    Panasonic Eluga Ray

    The Eluga Ray has the same disadvantages as P85, but not so noticeable as it is a tad bit better than the P85. The earphones Panasonic packs are not durable, so buy your own.

    Must buy accessories

    There are some few accessories that you must buy with this phone for it’s safety.
