Hands-on with Panasonic’s elegant Eluga [MWC 2012]
Some phones are built around hardware, others are built around beautiful design. The best combine both. Panasonic has taken a big step forward with the newly announced Eluga, and we had the opportunity to check out the handset on site at Mobile World Congress. Almost immediately the phone’s sharp yet elegant form calls to mind a sense of class you don’t see too often in an Android handset. The already thin 7.8mm Eluga appears thinner still thanks to an ergonomically curved back that tapers at the edges. But for as light, thin, and elegant as the phone appears, it feels equally solid in-hand.
