Announcement. Gigaset GS5 is a proud smartphone made in Germany

Gigaset in the mobile market is not particularlynoticeable, but gets into the news a couple of times a year. With their smartphones sold under the slogan “Made In Germany”. Actually, there in Germany they are sold.

The Gigaset GS5 is nothing supernaturalpresents. Another typical mid-range smartphone. Perhaps of real German quality. It is difficult to judge such things from a distance. Of the interesting things, we can only note the presence of wireless charging, and a two-year warranty. But first things first.

Last year's MediaTek Helio G85 chipset.We are waiting for two hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. Perhaps a little more. Not much. Only 4 GB of RAM, but full 128 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards.

The screen is a bit old-fashioned. And the neckline is teardrop-shaped.Yes, and IPS-matrices with a diagonal of 6.3 ″ with a resolution of 1080 × 2340 (409 ppi), something for a long time no one had. They bought an excessive number of screens for last year's Gigaset GS4, so they had to use them in the new model. Goodness should not be lost.

The battery is average, 4500 mAh. There is not particularly fast, but still fast charging - 18 watts. And - the trick of the device is 15W wireless charging.

You shouldn't expect too much from cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. On the back there is a double module 48 + 8 MP. The secondary camera can be both wide-angle and macro.

There is no support for 5G networks. Everything else is there. NFC, Type-C, Wi-Fi 5, gyroscope. The fingerprint scanner, however, is located in the back the old fashioned way.

Android eleventh version. Upgrades to Android 12 and Android 13 are planned.

The price is not very humane. To purchase a Gigaset GS5, you have to shell out as much as € 299 (₽24,700, $ 346). But what to do. For the label "Made in Germany" you have to pay extra.
