Panasonic launched a new bud­get seg­ment de­vice called Panasonic P55 MAX. The main USP of the Panasonic P55 MAx is its 5000mAh bat­tery. Also, if you talk about the hard­ware of this de­vice which is also de­cent and value for money. Let’s see the re­view of this mas­sive bat­tery bud­get smart­phone.

De­sign & Dis­play: Panasonic P55 Max is a de­cently de­signed phone with 5.5 inch HD LCD IPS Dis­play. It comes with 1280 x 780 res­o­lu­tion. Just above the dis­play on the front up­per side is the ear­piece fol­lowed by a 5MP selfie cam­era. The right side has the vol­ume up & down but­ton and a power but­ton. In­side the re­mov­able back cover, there’s are two mi­cro SIM card slots and a mi­cro-SD card slot. On the back, on the top, a 13MP cam­era and a quad LED flash and a Panasonic brand­ing in the cen­ter.

Panasonic P55 MAX sports a 5.5 inch HD dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 1280 x 720p. It has adap­tive screen bright­ness and over­all the dis­play is bright and sharp. The view­ing an­gles of the phone are also good. The vis­i­bil­ity of the dis­play un­der the strong sun­light is also ac­cept­able and text can be eas­ily read. he view­ing an­gles of the phone are enough good that three per­sons can eas­ily share the screen to watch videos. It has on­screen nav­i­ga­tion but­tons. So, over­all the dis­play is enough sharp and bright to en­joy the con­tent both out­door and in­door.

Cam­era: The Panasonic P55 MAX houses a 13MP sen­sor on the back with auto-fo­cus and 5MP fixed fo­cus selfie cam­era at the front. The cam­era app comes with lots of fea­tures to en­hance the pho­tog­ra­phy. The day­light images it cap­tures still good but in the low light, it per­forms av­er­age. The cam­era app comes with lots of fea­tures in­clud­ing ISO con­trol, Scene mode and White bal­ance con­trol. Three dif­fer­ent modes Nor­mal, Para­noma and Face­beauty.

Per­for­mance: It is pow­ered by An­droid 7.0 (Nougat) OS and Me­di­aTek MT6735 chip-set clocked at 1.2Ghz and paired with Mali T720 GPU. It comes with 3GB RAM plus 16 GB in­ter­nal mem­ory, ex­pand­able up to 128 GB and OTG sup­ports en­hances your stor­age op­tions. The in­ter­face Panasonic P55 MAX is quick with no dis­cernible lag creep­ing in. The screen is re­spon­sive too. The thing which we liked per­son­ally is that the Panasonic hasn’t added any ex­tra soft­ware layer that most of the times ham­per the user ex­pe­ri­ence. The hand­sets run on lat­est ver­sion of stock An­droid to give smooth lag free mo­bile user ex­pe­ri­ence. We played sev­eral high-graph­ics in­ten­sive games on it in­clud­ing WWE, NFS, Asphalt 8 Air­borne and Mor­tal com­bat, etc. The phone man­ages all the games with­out any ma­jor prob­lem or heat but we not go­ing to rec­om­mend it to heavy gamers. Even while switch­ing be­tween them there was no glitch.

Bat­tery: The phone is backed by a 5,000m mAh bat­tery. In the mod­er­ate us­age, this lasts eas­ily for 2 days. In our video loop test, we played 3 movies con­tin­u­ously of to­tal 4 hours 10 min with full bright­ness and full vol­ume over Wi-Fi. If you are a heavy user and play­ing a lot of games, In­ter­net surf­ing, etc that can eas­ily run for more than one day. Bot­tom­line: Over­all, the phone is good and a com­plete pack­age that a per­son needs in a bud­get smart­phone ex­cept for the fin­ger­print sen­sor. Yes, that is lit­tle bit dis­ap­points us that it does not have the fin­ger­print sen­sor be­cause at the al­most same price the Yu Yureka comes with 32GB ROM, 4GB RAM, and fin­ger­print sen­sor.

KEY SPECS: 3 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | Ex­pand­able Up to 128 GB, 5.5 inch HD Dis­play, 13MP Pri­mary Cam­era | 5MP Front, 5000 mAh Poly­mer Bat­tery, MTK MT6737 Pro­ces­sor PROS: Good Bat­tery and Build qual­ity CONS: 16GB ROM only and No Fin­ger­print sen­sor
