Gigaset GS280 - Made in Germany

You will not believe, but in our time something else is produced outside of China. Moreover, in Europe. In particular, the new Gigaset GS280 is a smartphone from the “Made in Germany” series.

When the Germans say “made in Germany”, theythey mean it, and not “they came up with the name of the house, they ordered it at a Chinese factory”. GS280 is produced at the plant in Bocholt. Gigaset, according to a company representative, is generally the only one who makes smartphones in Europe.

Apparently, this explains the not too humanecost - 249 euros for the device on the far from the most recent and very weak Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset. But a decent amount of RAM is 3 GB. And the battery is very good - 5000 mAh.

The screen for the present times is moderate - 5.7 ″, the resolution is normal - 1080 × 2160.

Chambers of quite good resolution: 16-megapixel main (single, without showing off), 13 MP front.

NFC support seems to be gone. It is a pity, would not hurt.
