Final verdict should you buy it?
The Panasonic eluga mark is good smartphone with a fingerprint sensor. Panasonic eluga mark handle most of the games and apps without any issue. The camera quality is also good but not best in class and the front facing 5MP camera works fine. It supports all major connectivity features like 4G and dual sim functionality. The build quality is also good. But you will have to compromise in screen quality. If you really want a fingerprint sensor in your device then and you can’t upgrade your budget then you can get Panasonic eluga mark. And if you can bump up your budget by 3000 INR i would highly recommend getting the Lenovo Vibe P1 with fingerprint sensor along with better battery life, camera, screen and build quality.
