PANASONIC P55 MAX
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.
