It also boasts a 16MP primary camera with LED flash on the rear and a 5MP snapper on the front.

Going by the price-and-specification ratio, Panasonic's Eluga Note will find it tough to attract buyers, considering the fact that the mid-range phablet segment is dominated by Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K4 Note, ZUK Z1, Asus Zenfone Max(2016), Moto G4 series and the recently-released LeEco Le 2, which come with much superior hardware and costs less.
