The company Gigaset, calls nearly 60 euros emerged from the Siemens phone division, for her middle-class model C300A. The comparison within the own price range, but also the benchmark interested here first with the little brother A400A, who’s under 40 euros. Gigaset has donated his c-class a color display. That not is good though for background images, but to the pleasant design and represent information.

This task does the display not only thanks to the color, but also by the size of the digits and the good contrast very neat so that it can settle here from the competition. The keys, however, knarzen and wiggle slightly, what cost one point in the discipline of “Processing”. This can partially better the competition, even the handles of base brother Gigaset A400A the testers liked something better.

Good Manager

The Gigaset C300A at a core virtue, the telephone number management is really good: 250 entries remembers the phone book – this is lone peak in the entire test field. Thanks to VIP ringing tone you can hear right of the jingle, who is calling. And by time reputation can be defined, when the phone is to give tranquility. Also top: The illuminated message button, which blinks when new calls are received. Also the answering machine, which is entirely sufficient with its features and storage space for private customers is well managed.

Strahungsreduktion and top lab values

Thanks to fully-eco-mode not spark the base in standby at all what in the entire test field, only the Swissvoice devices create. In addition, the customer can manually reduce the transmission power. Top results reported our laboratory at the Accumulations: with 167 hours in the power-guzzling all-eco mode the Gigaset C300A in stand by mode last still longer than many a colleague without radiation reduction. Also during the sound measurement, there to suspend little. Pay for clean development performance; The score well in the overall result.
