Gigaset S820 A in the Test

His new S820 A cordless phone Gigaset relies on the combination of touchscreen and keypad. How well does this connection?

Touch screens are in vogue, at least since the triumph of iPhone and co. And who is on the way familiar with a touch-sensitive display, prefers this maybe even at home. This was probably the consideration of company Gigaset, whose top model SL910 A smart phoneme inadmissible opts for sole touch operation.

But there are differences between an Internet Media Player mobile phone for traveling and a cordless telephone for solely domestic use. For the latter, many users prefer it a traditional numeric keypad. This heard also Gigaset by its customers and will now attempt a balancing act – or the combination of the best of two worlds S820 model: touchscreen plus conventional keyboard.

Models for every need

To connecttest S820 model has A with integrated answering machine for 140 euro. There are also the version S820 without A like answering machine (120 euros), as well as the handset with charge cradle solo (also 120 euros), log on other Gigaset base stations – also in be such with VoIP – and/or ISDNUnterstützung. In the tested combination with its own base for the analog network, the device supports no HD telephony, in conjunction with a properly equipped base already.

Striking at the first contact, the handset has got quite voluminous and 148 grams not exactly easy. In the massive bulge back below two standard NiMH cells in place AA format, providing along 2600 Mah and thus very good 19.5 hours of talk time can find something and 122.5 hours standby can be reached at least (fully-eco-mode). Despite the sprawling crowd, you can easily keep the well balanced handset in hand.

The first contact of Smartphone accustomed users (testers) with the touch-sensitive display is but slightly tough. For cost reasons, Gigaset uses a resistive touchscreen. In other words: The screen reacts to pressure. Although there’s not too much of it, but just more than you intuitively would expect it a display. Because one must first of all get used.

Touch screen with obstacles

The operating concept relies fully on the touch operation. In the main menu, which you can get with a press of the menu button that is positioned between dial – up and hook, all functions in the form of nine icons are lined up. Back from deeper levels of the menu takes a back button is displayed on the touch screen. As long as it functions at your fingertips reach can, it works well. Man – must be like in the phone book or in the slightly fuller menu – scroll it is incomparably more difficult to maintain the necessary emphasis with your finger.

This is also the main point of criticism on the S820 (A). Its functionality is equivalent to the Gigaset-upper class and leaves hardly anything from the phone book via Bluetooth connection to headset or a computer containing up to 500 entries to the CLIP function with caller photos miss. Only thing that is striking is that the handset during registration to a base type DX800 A with the Internet features offered from there such as weather display or email mag – do nothing at least with the tested software version. Anyway not a good idea would be to register the handset on a non-DECT-base – about a Fritz box -. Since then shrinks the bulging feature set on a skinny basic equipment

In our laboratory, the Gigaset delivered a convincing performance – sound quality, radio performance and endurance are at a high level. As the S820 is A nearly to the top of the connect– leaderboard. How much more convincing would this phone have been well, it would have a capacitive, so touch-sensitive touch screen on board!
