Build Quality

Build quality of this device is good and it sports a metal body with removable back cover. Under the metal removable cover, you will find the space for inserting SIM cards and micro-SD card. The massive 5000mAh battery is removable. The smooth metallic texture at the back side looks great. The camera is placed at the left top corner of the back with a quad LED flash light. The Design wise it’s not a very fresh looking design but not bad at the price it comes.

Design Overview

Just above the display on the front upper side is the earpiece followed by a 5MP selfie camera. The right side has the volume up & down button and a power button.

Display

Panasonic P55 MAX sports a 5.5 inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720p. It has adaptive screen brightness and overall the display is bright and sharp. The viewing angles of the phone are also good. The visibility of the display under the strong sunlight is also acceptable and text can be easily read. he viewing angles of the phone are enough good that three persons can easily share the screen to watch videos. It has onscreen navigation buttons. So, overall the display is enough sharp and bright to enjoy the content both outdoor and indoor.

Camera

The Panasonic P55 MAX houses a 13MP sensor on the back with auto-focus and 5MP fixed focus selfie camera at the front. The camera app comes with lots of features to enhance the photography. The daylight images it captures still good but in the low light, it perform average. The camera app comes with lots of features including ISO control, Scene mode and White balance control.

Three different modes Normal, Paranoma and Facebeauty.

Performance

The interface Panasonic P55 MAX  is quick with no discernible lag creeping in. The screen is responsive too. The thing which we liked personally is that the Panasonic hasn’t added any extra software layer that most of the times hamper the user experience. The handsets run on latest version of stock Android to give smooth lag free mobile user experience. We used the phone for more than three weeks and enjoy several games and did multitasking as well. We played several high-graphics intensive games on it including WWE, NFS, Asphalt 8 Airborne and Mortal combat, etc. The phone manages all the games without any major problem or heat but we not going to recommend it to heavy gamers. Even while switching between them there was no glitch.

Benchmark scores

Well, the scores are not much impressive but still at the price point the performance it gives is acceptable.

  

Battery

The phone is backed by a 5,000m mAh battery. In the moderate usage, this lasts easily for 2 days. In our video loop test, we played 3 movies continuously of total 4 hours 37 min with full brightness and full volume over Wi-Fi. If you are a heavy user and playing a lot of games, Internet surfing, etc that can easily run for more than one day.
