Build Quality, Design and Form Factor

The device has glossy plastic back cover, however quality of the plastic is better than we have seen in samsung budget phones and device is quite sturdy and it can easily resist drops from waist height as the device feels solid in hands. Edges are curved and round to some extent which gives a great grip of the device and its size is also quite suitable for hand grip, even when the device has glossy finish back its easy to hold and carry because of the light weight of around 120 grams. There is nice shiny chrome bezel frame which holds the device and also give it a premium look. The form factor great due to handy size and light weight, it fairly portable to carry and can be easily fitted in any pocket of jeans or trousers.  The buttons on the device are nice does not feel cheap and also give nice feedback, although these buttons are plastic but feels nice and sturdy.

Camera Performance

IMG_0902

The rear camera is a 5 MP shooter its pretty average in performance the day light photos are good but not so good in details however colors looks good, but low light photo show some high noise levels, you can also shoot 720p HD video from the back camera. The front camera is fixed focus and VGA quality and don’t expect much but you can do video chat from the from camera. Check out some camera samples taken in indoors and outdoors from rear camera.

Macro shots looks nice but make sure you hold the device at the right distance not too close and not too far from the object to capture it nicely. HDR mode is also supported in the rear camera photo modes but photo taken form the rear camera lack details.

Display, Memory and Battery Backup

You have 4 Inch WVGA display with resolution of 480 x 800 gives you fairly good pixel density, you might feel the display is little smaller specially while watching videos but the viewing angles are good if not the best when you see the screen from extreme viewing angles, however the sunlight visibility is just ok if not too good. The in built memory is 4 Gb out of which you get around 1.41 Gb available to the user for storing pictures, video and other data. The battery backup is not so good but it will last for you for around one day with moderate usage which means minimal use of the device for entertainment like watching videos, playing games etc.

Software, Benchmarks and Gaming

The software UI is stock android and its snappy and as fast as you might expect on a decent budget smartphone, there is no lag in the UI unless you are running very resource hungry app or graphic task on the phone. Its decent on the gaming front as it can play casual games like Temple Run oz and subway surfer without any issues on graphics and touch screen quality. The benchmarks scores are given below.

Benchmark Scores

  • Quadrant Standard Edition: 3343
  • Antutu Benchmark: 8961
  • Nenamark2:  33.0 fps
  • Multi Touch:  5 point

Sound, Video and Navigation

The sound quality from the loudspeaker is good but too loud on the volume but it was pretty clear on the device we tested. The headphones which comes with in the package looks exactly like we have seen with older generation iphone. The device can play 720p videos without any audio and video sync issues but for 1080p videos it might not play some of these videos but you can use MX player to play the unsupported videos. This device can be used for GPS navigation but you will need to enable GPS Satellite and Assisted GPS under location settings, it might take around 5-7 minutes for the first GPS coordinates lock.

Conclusion and Price

Panasonic T11 is great choice for a price of around Rs. 9000 or even less, its one the most stable android phone with decent build quality but don’t except much from camera although it will be good for day light photos. You might feel the display is smaller once you use it for some days but the viewing angles are pretty good. In terms of performance it will better then most of the other budget android phones priced below Rs 10,000

  1. just wanted to know if the battery is enough for a day of moderate usage and also is there any way to decrease the clock speed of the processor in this device n cheers for posting such a descriptive review of the device on youtube and on the website.

    • It will give you around one day of backup with moderate usage which does not include too much of game play and watching videos.

  2. In your video review, you said that the phone dialer does not have option to make video calls through 3G in this phone.does that mean that you can not do a video call through SIM in this Device?

    • It does not mean that you cannot do video calls, you can do video calls from the device on cellular network but native phone dialer does not have this feature, this is what I meant.

      • so if the native dialer does not have video call option, then how can we make video calls on this phone ?
        Also, Im lookking for a phone for my father, who needs basic functionality (android), but it must have vedoe calling and a decent camera.. long battery life would be an added advantage. CVan u recommend somthing around 8k ?
        thank u

  3. I m looking good camera…gaming (like temple run like …not much heavy ) and more apps …ill this suite me ??? Or any other device u suggest me my budget it 12K

    • This is pretty decent choice at this price point, but you do have some other better options like Gionee Elife E3, Lava iris 504q and videocon A55 HD

  4. I m looking good camera with flash …gaming (like temple run like …not much heavy ) and more apps …ill this suite me ??? Or any other device u suggest me my budget it 12K

    • Other devices would be Lava iris 504q, Panasonic P11 or Gionee elife E3, not all are under 12k but near to this price mark.

  5. Does this phone heats up a lot when you switch on 3G network ?….How much time it takes to heat up a lot when you are on a call for 10 minutes.

    • we did not faced any such issues during our 2 weeks review, however the phone heated up at time but not too much to make it uncomfortable to hold.

  6. Hi, am from Kerala n learned that panasonic does not have a single service center in the entire state.in such a circumstance i want to know wether, would it be a wise move to go for this Device?

  7. I had just brought the T11 a day back and the mobile heats up at the back panel below camera when i enable the data connection.It heats up even in 5 min.I tried contacting the customer care number 1800-102-8989 but user busy always. 🙁 I brought it on-line and not sure of how to deal with the problem.I wrote the same to their support mail id and they sent a PDF and asked to do a software upgrade(Still i need to try),I am completely worried.

  8. Which is best one of the lumia 520, canvas2+ and t11 by considering combined good performance of camera, browsing, audio/video quality and other performance.

  9. among Samsung S duos, Xolo Q500, Panasonic T11 which one to choose. Performance and durability without hanging and lagging problem.

  10. battery backup is poor on less then 30% battery i can’t make any call without using my earphones . any solution or shall i buy some other phone ???

    • check the power settings of the phone, if something can be done otherwise get it checked at near by service center.

  11. could you suggest me between Panasonic T11 vs Samsung s duos 2. I am not a gamer, will use few apps like email (2 email account). FB, twitter, whatsapp, wechat and few other apps. Occasional browsing. My main worry with samsung is it has only 768mb RAM on that only 330 mb is available. will that be enough for my requirement?

    • Panasonic T11 is a great phone at the price – but dont expect much from camera on this device. As per your usage it should be good and better than samsung option.

  12. What about Panasonic T11? I want to use CDMA with GSM but for internet access purpose I wish to use GSM with 3G and CDMA for call.
