Reviews for the Gigaset GS5

79.5% Gigaset GS5 review - Gentle upgrade for the smartphone made in Germany | Notebookcheck
The Gigaset GS5 retains an old virtue this year — the removable battery — but adds a newer SoC, more memory, and a more promising camera setup. In return, it is more expensive and the power adapter is removed from the package.
