Review of the product design of the Panasonic Eluga S
Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets
When deciding whether to buy an Panasonic Eluga S, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Panasonic Eluga S around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The Panasonic Eluga S is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.
Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket
It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Panasonic Eluga S in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.
Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket
The Panasonic Eluga S has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.
Ease of getting it in and out of your bag
The Panasonic Eluga S is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.
Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling
It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Panasonic Eluga S by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.
Ease of grasping the phone in one hand
The Panasonic Eluga S is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.
The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand
The Panasonic Eluga S is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.
Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand
Even when used with one hand, the Panasonic Eluga S has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.
The size of the buttons on the App
The buttons displayed on the Panasonic Eluga S are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
Keys on the Panasonic Eluga S can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.
Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion
If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the Panasonic Eluga S with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Panasonic Eluga S is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.
The size of the letters and the ease of operation
In general, the Panasonic Eluga S displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.
Ease of reading sentences
Since the Panasonic Eluga S displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.
The beauty of the overal screen
The Panasonic Eluga S can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.
Ease of writing sentences
For the Panasonic Eluga S, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
The Panasonic Eluga S has performance that allows it to be used comfortably for phone calls, emails, and chat. It is rare but sometimes there is lag. Still, this almost never occurs, so it can be said to be suitable for normal use.
Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?
The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.
Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?
For example, if you're using multiple apps simultaneously, such as swapping between SNS or chat frequently, it will gradually start to operate slowly. If you use it for a long period in this way apps can begin to forcefully close due to lack of memory and can crash.
