Software

The Gigaset GS170 uses pure Android 7.0 nougat as the operating system. Despite the inexpensive hardware, this runs relatively smoothly and sufficiently fast. But of course you have to be patient longer than with high-end smartphones. If too many tasks have to be done at the same time, the RAM upgrade doesn’t help compared to the predecessor either.

In addition to the pure Android operating system, Gigaset also includes its own screensaver and ringtones with the GS170. Five apps are also pre-installed ex works: T-Online News, Weather app, Fuel app, Discover Gigaset app and a help app. However, these can be uninstalled without any problems. An additional special feature are the so-called SmartDraw features: Even when the screen is switched off, up to eight different wiping gestures can be started by drawing letters in apps. Screenshots can also be created easily with a wipe gesture.

A further intelligent feature concerns the fingerprint sensor: The individual fingers can be assigned certain functions, so that by laying down a finger different actions, such as calls, photos, etc. can be triggered.

Battery

The Gigaset GS170 has a 2,500 mAh battery. This is not much compared to other smartphones, but the hardware of the GS170 is so economical that the battery life is still satisfactory. One day the device should survive well, I have mostly even had about 50 percent. The battery is exchangeable, so it can be replaced if necessary. It is conspicuous that in the synthetic benchmark a much worse value is achieved than in the GS160, although the differences are very small.

Unfortunately, the device has no quick charging function, it takes more than three hours until the battery is full again. A MicroUSB port is used for charging just like with the GS160.

Reception & Voice Quality

Meanwhile, the fast LTE can also be found in smartphones in this price class. This ensures fast Internet even on the go. Bluetooth 4.0 LE and WLAN 802.11 b/g/n are also on board. However, NFC and the wireless charging standard Qi must be dispensed with. However, both technologies are not common in this price class either. In addition, a GPS receiver is built in, so the device can also be used as a navigation device, for example. The integrated microphone is sufficient for making phone calls and sending voice messages, but unfortunately it is not outstanding, as you would expect from Gigaset.
