We feel that the Panasonic Eluga Icon is fairly overpriced, considering it is priced at INR.10,999 (approx Rs.17,600) in India. Although, the phone has an excellent build quality and a good battery life, but it still runs on an outdated version of Android, and the camera performance is mediocre at best which could be a deal breaker for potential consumers. At this price, you can easily get Samsung Galaxy J7 or the Micromax Canvas 5 which in my opinion would be a better buy.
