MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

The GS5 has a removable battery – something that is a rarity today. It also offers decent specs and value for the price. However, Gigaset smartphones are not commonly found outside of Germany, its country of production. Which is kind of sad, because a lot of people are looking to buy a smartphone that is not made in China. And there are not many of those around any more.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation based on the specs of the device and a general guide to help you understand how much value a device offers for its price. It is not an endorsement of the device. Ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device; MobilityArena takes no responsibility for your buying decisions.
