Communicate smartly even in old age - with the latest technology and simple operation

Keep your finger on the pulse - at every stage of life. The Gigaset GS5 senior is the best choice for this. Specially tailored to seniors, the smartphone is part of the Gigaset life series, a range of products developed with the needs of older people in particular in mind. With the latest technology and no superfluous bells and whistles.

The specially developed user interface of the GS5 senior offers the most important functions at a glance and can be operated intuitively with the modified keypad. At the same time, the GS5 senior is a fully-fledged smartphone at the cutting edge of technology with intelligent emergency call function, all available Android apps such as WhatsApp, triple camera and contactless payment function. A powerful processor makes the smartphone particularly nimble and an additional 64 GB of internal memory offers enough space for plenty of photos and videos. Last but not least, the device is "Made in Germany".

The essentials in view: On the clear user interface

Forget about constantly wiping back and forth, scrolling or touching in search of the right app! Up to eight applications can be placed on the individually adjustable start screen as large, self-explanatory and clearly arranged icons. This gives you direct access to the apps you use most often after unlocking. The high-contrast menu with large font and clear icons makes operating the Gigaset GS5 senior conceivably easy, even for inexperienced users.

Always properly connected: The GS5 senior with large keypad for easy typing as well as dictation function

Being mobile - that means being able to communicate with friends, family or other important contacts anytime, anywhere. And to make mobile exchanges as convenient as possible for you, the Gigaset GS5 senior makes it easy for you to enter phone numbers and contacts and compose messages: For easy readability, digits and letters appear extra large in dialling mode. In addition, the alphabetical order of the letters ensures that you can type faster and save valuable time when composing messages or searching for contacts. With the help of speech recognition, text input becomes particularly easy.

Your safety is important: Three emergency call options for quick help

In addition to being able to communicate wherever you are and many helpful functions for everyday life, your Gigaset GS5 senior gives you one thing above all: a feeling of security. This is guaranteed by various emergency call functions that you can activate in just a few simple steps. Choose from three options: 

  1. contact the automatically stored emergency number 112 directly.
  2. call one of your pre-selected individual emergency contacts.
  3. activate the emergency SMS, a standardised SOS message with a reference to your current location is sent to all your stored emergency contacts. 

No matter which option you choose, help is just a keystroke away.

You won't lose sight of anything here: large display for best visibility

Especially in old age, the clear display of information brings a high level of comfort. With a screen diagonal of 16 cm, the almost frameless display of the Gigaset GS5 senior is more than twice as long as it is wide - so there's plenty of room for everything that's important, and the device fits comfortably in your hand at the same time. Particularly high-contrast and bright, the panoramic display with Full HD+ resolution also offers the best conditions for viewing and taking great pictures. Or for a video call to be close to your loved ones even from a distance.

The display comes from the factory with a protective film applied. To ensure that the GS5 senior is not damaged if it is accidentally dropped, the leather booklet case, which is also included, also ensures this.

Save great memories: With the dual camera

Outings with the grandchildren, a day in the garden or the birthday party with the whole family - life is full of wonderful experiences. Capture your memories of these moments in razor-sharp images. The GS5 senior senior has a camera with 48 MP resolution. For particularly large subjects or panoramas, the 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera takes over, and for close-up or detailed shots, the macro camera is just right. The LED flash puts the subjects in the right light. With the 8 MP front camera, you can take funny selfies for your loved ones, for example. And if it should be more than just a photo: Video recordings in Full HD 1080p look particularly lively.

Easy charging, long runtime - a powerful battery makes it possible

With its powerful battery, the GS5 senior is a reliable companion for days of moderate use. It provides up to 30 hours of talk time on the 3G network. If it needs to be charged at some point, this is particularly easy via the magnetic charging cable, which connects almost by itself.

To ensure a long service life for your GS5 senior, the battery can also be replaced at the end of its service life in just a few simple steps by the user without having to send the smartphone to the service department - an important sustainability aspect for Gigaset.

The Gigaset GS5 senior is part of the Gigaset Battery Save initiative for more sustainability: Extensive tests have shown that the life of a smartphone battery can be extended many times over if it is not regularly fully charged. That's why the battery is only charged to 90 percent by default (can be deactivated at any time in the device settings).

And even more practical extras

You don't have to remember a long PIN to unlock the GS5 senior - it's enough to place your finger on the sensor on the back or look at the device, as it also has a face recognition function. The triple card slot is also practical: It takes a memory card with up to 512 GB for an almost infinite number of photos and videos. And a second SIM card can be inserted in addition to the user's own, for example to send greetings home from the holiday destination at low cost via prepaid. With the NFC ("Near Field Communication") transmission standard, you can also make cashless payments. In the training manual that comes with the phone, you will also find detailed and generously illustrated answers to all your questions about your Gigaset GS5 senior.
