  1. Hello Gogi,

    I know its quite late now to ask but does it have the gorilla glass protection? I am not able to find an update of the scratch resistance for P81 in any of the websites.

    Thanks,

      1. Thanks but the comment does not mention anything about a protective layer i.e Gorilla or an asahi dragontrail etc. Could you please throw some light on this?

  2. When will you post a full review of this model? Do mention about the complete list of sensors available.

  3. gogi sir, which one is the best among panasonic p81 and sony xperia t2. in which there r no need for next purchase in next 6 month.

    1. Not sure and also not mentioned so most likely hard glass with some scratch resistant qualities.

  4. This mostly seems like a good deal. The big problem is that they have customized the UI heavily enough to give it its own name (Play Life in this case) That should always set off warning bells. Why they can’t just provide stock Android or else just lightly customize it to improve scrolling(the only bad thing about stock android) is not clear.

    1. Dear, use Opera browser, its best….. but clear history/cache frequently and you will never face such problem.

  7. There has been a sudden increase in 3G prepaid data plans with Vodafone & aircel chennai.
    2 weeks back 1GB plan was 133rs but now its increased to 193Rs.
    Do any of you face such increase in 3G tarrifs with other providers & regions .

  8. Gogi,
    Which one is best Lava Iris X1/Micromax Canvas Colour 2.2/ Xolo Q700s???
    Though Lava didn’t release dat one coz of kitkat update & MTK 6582 is scheduled to kitkat in early June.. So what should I do??

  9. hello Gogi sir please reply which GPU is better PowerVR SGX544 OR Mali 400

    1. approx….
      powervr sgx544 (6589T)>mali 400mp(single core)>powervr sgx(6589)

      Actually you should compare mobiles containing GPU as performance of gpu also depends much on CPU and screen resolution.

      1. thanks for reply but my real question is which phone has better GPU Canvas A120 OR Canvas 4 A210

  10. ”entertainment downloads
    from Hungama” where a wallpaper costs Rs.10 ..!! Lol.. Why only 11K they can give free downloads worth of 100K…. !

  11. Don’t waste your money on this. The brand Panasonic has some trust from the buyers, but guys panasonic’s after-sales service is worse than the worst brands. Their customer care and service center are only on paper.

    1. You’re paying the price for better build quality,Rock solid reliability & best in class customer care supporg!
      You won’t get any of this in these poor chinese rebranding manufacturers.
      I’ve personally met a lot of users who admit that companies like iberry are third class.

      1. ..and I’m one of the user of iberry nuclea x and I never felt anything less in build quality, customer servce or reliability factor there in auxus.
        dude…there is NO point in paying lump sum amount as premium for ‘premium’ brands when you get super value for money from these lesser known brands. Hardly you require an after sales need if at all you are used to smartphones and its do’s and donts…
        i paid just a silly 13k for this nuclea x and im quite happy with the money i spent.

  12. bezels look awesome… i would say this is a great buy… hope they give software updates..

  13. just waiting for karbonn titanium octane to be released!…..

    it’ll hit the crap out of other octacores!..
