Cheap smartphones up to 500 PLN have long been a good choice for a less demanding user. Some manufacturers, however, still present smartphones that should never leave the factory. A good example is the Panasonic P100.
At present, even with a very limited budget, we can buy a good smartphone up to 500 PLN. For me, such a device should have at least 2 GB of RAM and an HD screen. If we look at the specification of Panasonic P100, it meets this condition at first glance. At least partially. The bottleneck is the processor, which is MediaTek MT6737. This is the unit that at the time of its launch was to compete with Snapdragon 410 – its time of a very popular chip, which fortunately has no longer been implemented in new smartphones. The four Cortex A53 cores with low clock speed are no longer sufficient for smooth operation in everyday use.What's worse, the version equipped with 1 GB of operating memory is also expected to hit the market. Admittedly, the store will also have a variant with twice the amount of RAM, but why waste other components at the version that does not have the chance to run smoothly even in the hands of the undemanding user? I have no answer to this question. Fortunately, this model has very little chance of getting to our country. It looks very weak in terms of appearance as well. Thick frames that were tried to mask with the black space surrounding the display in 2018 look comical. Even in 2014, it would be difficult to accept them. The situation looks better from the back – I personally associate with Samsung Galaxy. I am also happy that even in such devices fingerprint readers have already appeared. Panasonic P100 is a smartphone designed for the Indian market. Calculated costs about 400 zlotys, that is, its direct competitor will be, for example, Xiaomi Redmi 5A. And in my opinion, he loses with him in every respect. Taking into account the position of Xiaomi on the Indian market, I do not bode his success. It is a pity, because after such a large producer with electronics, which is Panasonic, I expected something more. Source: gizmochin
