Reviews for the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-E1

90% Panasonic ToughPad FZ-E1 Handheld Review | Notebookcheck
Indestructible. The ToughPad FZ-E1 is a member of Panasonic's first Rugged 5-inch Handhelds. The device has been developed primarily for enterprise and industrial use. In addition to its exceptional outdoor qualities and battery life, it has a really high performance.

The Toughpad FZ-E1 has a very clear purpose and that makes it tricky to criticise. As a tablet/smartphone it treads the middle ground with average specifications, passable OS and pleasant enough performance. The camera is especially poor, and the price will make your eyes water, but the build quality is phenomenal and the barcode scanner will be useful when put in the right hands.

Crucially, though, Panasonic’s latest justifies its cost in key areas. It’s got good power, a phenomenal battery and rugged features that no other tablet can offer. Panasonic has designed the FZ-E1 to appeal to workers in military, medical and other demanding industries, and they’ll be able to justify its cost and make use of its features – but, for most of us, it’s overkill.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Panasonic: Panasonic Corporation, formerly known as Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., is a multinational corporation based in Japan. Its main business is in electronics manufacturing and produces products under a variety of names including Panasonic and Technics. Since its founding in 1918, it grew to become the largest Japanese electronics producer. In addition to electronics, Panasonic offers non-electronic products and services such as home renovation services. Panasonic is an international notebook manufacturer, but with rather small market shares and few laptop reviews. Panasonic concentrates its notebook sortiment primarily to the niche of ruggedized notebooks, which are made for rough outdoor usage.

From 2013-2016, Panasonic has primarily offered tablets and, to a lesser extent, also smartphones. However, there are only few smartphone reviews.


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
