Reviews for the Gigaset GS185

78.8% Gigaset GS185 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Made in Germany. With the GS185, Gigaset launches the first smartphone designed and assembled in Germany. Considering the price is significantly below 200 Euros (~$233), expectations should not be pitched too high. However, the GS185 offers a trendy 2:1 display and a strong 4000 mAh battery. Find out where it is lacking in this review.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
