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.


Gigaset Communications GmbH is a manufacturer of DECT phones, tablets and smartphones, headquartered in Germany and originated from a subsidiary of Siemens, but has been part of Arques Industries since 2008.

The market shares in the smartphone range are just as low as the amount of test reports. The achieved ratings are average (as of 2016).

76.75%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
