Panasonic P90 is a low budget smartphone by Panasonic that very few people in the world actually care about. It was launched in 2018 and is still available for purchase from various online and offline stores in India.
It’s Panasonic’s flagship phone for the low budget market but this phone has failed to make any real impact on the market and has largely been ignored by most smartphone buyers since it was put to sale. It comes with 1GB of ram and a 1.25GHz quad-core MediaTek 6737 processor. It has a battery of 2400mAh and comes with type B USB port.
The design is extremely generic, which by default makes it satisfactory. There is no notch which might actually appeal to some but also gives the phone an extremely dated feel which ruins the experience for anyone who has been using a “notch-ed” phone.
The display of 5.00inch is not bad by most standards and should make a good viewing experience when playing an HD video or playing an average game. Could have been a lot better but it’s good enough for normal usage.
Calling Panasonic P20 a smartphone seems wrong because there is nothing really smart about it. With specs like a 1.25GHz quad-core MediaTek 6737 processor with 1GB of RAM, this phone would have seemed outdated if it had launched in 2017 but the fact that this phone is still being manufactured and sold in 2019 is just bizarre. There was once a time when having 1GB of RAM in your smartphone was cool. That time ended years ago but it just seems like Panasonic haven’t received the memo yet.
It would definitely be unfair to compare this phone to the ones above its price range but even in its own domain, it leaves a lot to be desired. The camera is lacklustre, the battery backup is extremely mediocre and it’s speed won’t be winning it any medals any time soon.
The primary camera of 5MP and the front of 5MP are mediocre but good enough if you only want to use it for extremely basic purposes. For anything more aesthetically pleasing, you’ll have to use a different phone.
An underwhelming battery of just 2400 mAh for an underwhelming phone. This battery will last for a while if the phone is on stand by but a few hours of using 4G or playing games on this and you will find yourself looking for a charger.
So, should you buy the Panasonic P90? If you absolutely have to buy a smartphone for less than Rs 5000 then you could go for this phone but you will have to keep in mind the fact that more and more apps are becoming increasing resource-heavy and this phone might just not be able to keep up with them for much longer—buying it for your parents might work out well for obvious reasons.
