In addition to the Gigaset GS195, which was recently awarded a Silver Award in our test, the company also provided us with its little brother Gigaset GS190, which was presented in parallel. The Smartphone with the ?strong>Made in Germany? is offered/strong? – seal without contract already for ?strong>169 euro ? Whether beside the low price also the achievement can convince can experience you in the coming article.
Equipment, Design and Workmanship
In addition to the smartphone, the comparatively compact packaging contains a USB charger, a USB cable and a SIM card needle as well as a brief quick start guide. Headphones are missing, but should already be available in almost every household.
At first glance, the large display of the Gigaset GS190 is noticeable, which is practically borderless at the sides and thus doesn’t make the smartphone look clunky despite the high diagonal. The screen-to-body ratio of about 80 percent is good for the price range. All in all, the completely black device looks elegant and relatively thin. In addition to the USB-C port for charging and data exchange, there is also a classic 3.5 mm jack port .
The processing is impeccable and gives no point for criticism. The materials also make a high-quality impression and do not have to hide from much more expensive devices.
The Gigaset GS190 Display
The Gigaset GS190 features an almost borderless 6.1-inch display with HD+ resolution (1,560 x 720 pixels), which corresponds to a pixel density of 282 ppi. With 745 cd/m², the brightness is sufficiently high in everyday life, even under unfavourable lighting conditions, to be able to read the display at any time. Apart from the technical values that are good for a smartphone in this price range, the brilliant colours and good image sharpness of the IPS panel are already noticeable when the phone is switched on for the first time. Only the small semicircular Notch at the upper end of the display clouds the positive impression a little.
The screen is protected by a scratch-resistant and dust-repellent 2.5D glass , which has prevented scratches and other damage even after about four weeks of use without display protection film. Gorilla glass from Corning, which has been the market leader in display protection for years, was probably not used for cost reasons. In everyday life, however, this shortcoming can be overcome.
