The Cameras of the Gigaset GS190
The Gigaset GS190’s main camera offers a resolution of 13 megapixels, Autofocus, and LED flash. There is also a secondary camera on the back of the smartphone with 0.3 megapixel resolution and a front camera with 8 megapixel resolution. Besides photos, the front camera can also be used for unlocking via Face-ID . Alternatively, in our test, the unlocking also worked via the fingerprint reader available on the back without any problems.
The quality of the shots is good in good lighting conditions, but it deteriorates considerably in artificial light or in the evening and night hours. This is mainly due to the autofocus, which sometimes takes a very long time to focus in low ambient brightness.
The photos taken can here also be downloaded as original , since they have been compressed for display in the browser.
Operating System and Apps
The operating system is Android 9 Pieces. Many smartphones of the competition in this price class are still delivered with much older versions of the mobile Google operating system. With the exception of the Google standard applications, there are no pre-installed apps on the Gigaset GS190. Nevertheless, the operating system occupies about six of the 16 GByte memory space.
