Convenience and security at your fingertips.

The Gigaset GS160 is the only smartphone in its price category with a fingerprint sensor. From an ergonomic point of view, this sensor is ideally located on the rear and can recognise up to five different fingerprints. This means you can not only comfortably lock your phone, but also launch apps, accept calls, take photos, switch off your alarm or assign shortcuts to your different fingers. And, of course, your phone has maximum protection against unauthorised access.

The perfect photo?
It's in the settings.

From landscape to portrait: with the 13-MP auto-focus main camera and the 5-MP front camera, you'll always capture the perfect shot. With numerous settings and subject modes, such as Panorama and Beauty, you can take the perfect photo in any setting. And no more annoying tapping of the trigger for selfies - remote control means you simply have to gesture or smile.

For Android™ purists:
6.0 Marshmallow.

The new Gigaset GS160 runs the tried and tested Android™ operating system with its numerous new functions in version 6.0, Marshmallow.  

The user interface is presented in the original pure Android™ version.

The specification has been supplemented with some handy features; e.g. the smart features, advanced fingerprint functions and enhanced battery management.

Why put everything on one card when you can have three?

One smartphone for everything: the Gigaset GS160 has slots for two SIM cards simultaneously. Dual stand-by functionality lets you use both cards at the same time — ideal for your work and private numbers, for example. Or stay in touch when abroad by using a back-up pay-as-you-go SIM. You can also use the microSD slot to expand your memory by up to 128 GB. That is enough for more than 55,000 photos, 18,000 songs or 30 HD films. 

Smart features - keeping everything nice and simple.

Make things easy for yourself: launch apps quickly and conveniently with SmartDraw, just by drawing a character on the display. You can define up to eight different letters for eight different functions. Or use wake-up mode by tapping twice on the display to wake your phone back up. And use SmartDraw to capture screenshots more simply than ever before: just swipe three fingers down from the top of the display.

Featuring the fastest connection going.

The world of mobile surfing is getting faster and faster, with download speeds reaching 100 Mbit/s via 4G LTE network. The new Gigaset GS160 is also LTE-ready. This is fast enough to send large data packages, for example, or to stream films in HD without juddering.
