Pros and Cons of Panasonic P55 Max
Pros of Panasonic P55 Max
The 5000mAh battery is enough to go through a full working day without the requirement of charging.
- Card Slot
There is a dedicated slot for microSD card. Most of the phones these days come with hybrid SIM slot which makes users choose between a SIM card and microSD card.
Cons of Panasonic P55 Max
- Fingerprint Sensor
The price is quite high to miss out on the fingerprint sensor. There are many other alternatives which come with fingerprint sensor at a much cheaper price.
Considering the weight of the device (180g), the device is bulky as compared to the other alternatives. If you are like me who has a thing for light-weighted phones, this might not be the ideal device for you.
- No headphones
I’m quite an old school when it comes to headphones. Gone are the days when all the smartphones (mobile phones) came with headphones. Still, there are many manufacturers who still give a headphone. If given a choice of a phone with similar specs and headphones, I’ll go for that.
- RAM & internal storage
3GB RAM is sufficient but not sufficient enough. 16GB of internal storage is sufficient but not sufficient enough. However, these two features kind of compliment each other. With only 3GB of RAM, there are not many apps that can be downloaded and used without the device becoming laggy.
The more the merrier!
At this price and battery capacity, there is no other phone which can be named as the perfect alternative for Panasonic P55 Max. Other phones with 5000mAh battery aren’t as good with the overall package as this phone is.
However, if you are not on a tight budget, you can put in some extra buck and go for Motorola Moto E4 Plus at Rs. 9999. The phone comes with great specs at a great price. It even has headphones in the box and runs on stock Android out-of-the-box.
