With the Eluga I5, Panasonic has added another smartphone to its budget-segment lineup. With this smartphone, the brand looks to cater to the Indian audience looking for a power packed yet not so premium-priced handset.

Display and Design

In terms of build quality and design, the phone rocks an all-metal body which feels durable. The back side of this phone is where its primary camera unit and fingerprint sensor are situated. Similar to most metal-body smartphones, the Eluga I5 also has antennae lines on the upper and lower half of its back. On the front, the phone is fitted with a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display panel having a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. For improved user experience, the front of the phone is also fitted with Asahi Dragon Trail Glass and 2.5D Curved Display.

Performance and Storage

As far as performance goes, the offering from Panasonic packs in a quad-core MediaTek MTK6737 processor ticking at 1.25 GHz paired with 2GB of RAM. On the storage front, the phone ships in a 16GB internal storage variant which can be expanded up to 128GB through its onboard hybrid microSD card slot. Out of the box, the phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat. To top it off, the phone incorporates 'ARBO', the company’s artificial intelligence system which will assist you with your daily task scheduling.


In the optics department, the Eluga I5 features a 13-megapixel primary camera coupled with an LED flash and burst mode which enables it for the clicking of multiple pictures in a single go. Up front, it is integrated with a 5-megapixel selfie camera bearing an aperture of f/2.2 paired with some intuitive software enhancements like beauty mode.

Connectivity and Battery

For connectivity, the phone supports 2G, 3G, 4G with VoLTE, dual-band WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and micro USB port for charging and data transferring. The phone draws its power from a 2500 mAh non-user-removable battery located under its body.
