    Resident party pooper here.

    "Only the cardboard and operating instructions are actually Made in Germany”

    Logical since at this price it'd be impossible to "make" such a thing in Germany.

    "in Bocholt the parts are assembled, tested and packed, and the operating system is also installed. Only the cardboard and operating instructions are actually “Made in Germany”.

    I read that a lot of "made in Germany" goods are only assembled and packed there and that is enough to earn right to use the "made in Germany" term. Same goes for some of the Mediterranean food products which arrive in bulk from China and other low cost countries, get repacked on Europe and end up as for example "Italian tomato puree". (edited)

    I had a gigaset phone a few years ago (actually the first deal I posted on here! hotukdeals.com/share-deal-from-app/2545211 ). It was actually a really well made phone but unfortunately suffered with the overheating Snapdragon 810 like many phones.
    If they get it right you feel they are capable of making a really good phone. (edited)

    I've still got mine, use it as sat nav haha. Shame they never gave it an update

    The Helio G85 is really weak, it was unimpressive when used in the Redmi Note 9 three years ago and not helped by only 4GB of RAM. A removable battery isn't worth much if the phone's barely usable

    At this price point you'll often find Helio G2x/G3x powered phones. Much slower processors. You'll also find a faster ones as well every now and then but this deal is not about processor speed.

    removable battery!!

    For that alone it's worth it! Anyway, extremely interesting phone as OP has said and at favourable price point. All the more, it is made in Germany for all who shun Far Eastern products 🔥

    Folks, just noticed the NOTIFICATION LED. Wow, reminds me of my beloved CUBOT of past. Such a wonderful facility

    It's like they went through a bunch of HUKD phone deal posts and took on every nit-picking comment on board.
    - replaceable battery? -Here you go.
    - notification LED? -Sorted
    -Chinese want to spy on me.- Made in Germany
    -how about that FM radio so I don't use my data? No probs, And before you ask, we did throw in the reverse charging so go ahead and use it as a power bank.

    Gigaset is Siemens

    Interesting how they have used the gigaset branding, remember having the gigaset landline phones back in the day! And a Siemens sl55 mobile phone. Both really good quality and ahead of the rest in features.

    Also hot for the removable battery, and price haha

    Where is the missing post of people asking how this compares to:
    iPhone 14
    Fold 4
    Pixel 7
    The answer is they can't compare if you are comparing how easy to remove the battery

    Might bite if it drops below £100
    litwoojczyznomoj's avatar
    litwoojczyznomoj Author
    More likely the price will go up to over £200 when the offer ends

    Great price for a Gigachad GS5 LITE Smartphone

    Made in Germany, with Chinese parts, although could be Taiwanese now I think about it...
    Heat 🔥 added

    Assembled in Germany - Parts made in China
    Feargal's avatar
    Seems Ok. Although "Assembled in Germany" instead of "Made in Germany" signature should be used to give clearer picture.
  18. Feargal's avatar
    Plus £6 delivery. Maybe amazon will stock them direct soon enough.
  19. Jabaltariq's avatar
    Heat for the user replaceable battery. 🔥

    Thank you, husband wanted a slightly smaller phone to replace his old dead one and this looks just the job. Appreciate the recommendation, OP.
