Reviews for the Gigaset GX290

75.9% Gigaset GX290 Review: Mobile phone warhorse with long battery life | Notebookcheck
With a comparatively compact rugged smartphone, Gigaset wants to attract a further clientele and is focusing on a mixture of good equipment, large energy storage and sustainability under the "Made in Germany" flag. You can read in the test whether the recipe is convincing.

Helio P23 MT6763V: ARM-based octa core SoC (4x Cortex-A53 for power efficiency and 4x Cortex-A53 for performance) for smartphones and tablets.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.

This weight is typical for smartphones.


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).

75.9%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
