Conclusion on the Gigaset GS170 Review
In our test, the Gigaset GS170 scored well in almost all aspects. While we found fault with the Gigaset GS160’s RAM, which is very tight at one gigabyte, the GS170 is equipped with 2 GB and is therefore much better equipped for everyday use. The operation is therefore as fluid as possible. The touch screen and the fingerprint sensor are convincing. The battery life and especially the multimedia functions like camera and sound are unfortunately less. The battery life has even decreased compared to the GS160 – is this due to the Android 7.0 nougat?
If you don’t want to play games with a lot of effects and don’t want to make big demands on sound and camera, the Gigaset GS170 is a good choice. However, you should wait until the price has fallen. Because the GS160 is already available for less than 100 Euro, but is almost identical in construction, but only has Android 6 Marshmallow.
As with all smartphones, we recommend the use of a glass film to protect the display.
