He further added that consumers can purchase a handset for themselves or to gift it thier loved ones on this festive season.

The new release from Panasonic might have to face a tough competition in the market as currently other smartphone makers are offering 4G handsets below this price range such as Yu Yunique and Moto E 2nd Gen. The key specifications aren’t much highlighting so that it could attract the users. The processor and RAM combo will help in running light apps smoothly on the devices, however, it might get lagging problems in heavy multitasking, which can also be counted as a negative point. The only reason to pick the handset is its premium looks and design that could catch customers’ eyes.
