The Panasonic P85 is a quad core powered handset with 4G LTE and VoLTE support. This handset is priced at Rs. 6,499. This Panasonic P85 review will give you an idea about the handset features, performance, camera quality and if it is worth the price.

To sum up, the only best thing about the Panasonic P85 is the battery capacity and performance. There is a 4000 mAh non-removable battery and it gives excellent battery life, thanks to the under-performing hardware.

Apart from this there is nothing exciting about this handset, it should have done great had it been priced at Rs. 4,999. Anyway you can check the details below and it will give you a good idea about the performance.

Panasonic P85 Gaming Review

I played Asphalt 8 it was lagging in high quality mode and in low quality mode the game play was smooth and playable. The hardware as you can see from benchmark scores is not that powerful for gaming.

Panasonic P85 SIM slot


A not so powerful handset with excellent battery life all thanks to the low powered quad core processor. For users who are not much into gaming and use the phone just for browsing, phone calls and to connect on social networks, they will find the battery life really amazing.

This is a okay handset and better options are available, would have been great if the handset was priced at Rs. 4,999.

Rating : 3.5 out of 5
