On the Betatschen of small equipment one has become accustomed at the latest since the iPhone, now touch screens we encounter everywhere. As a tablet or on the ticket of the railway – even camcorders are now largely controlled with a finger. So, it’s no wonder that now deployed the first phone with an appropriate screen. As everywhere, this is a matter of taste even in the domestic environment, the classy appearance at the SL910 A, however, is indisputable.

Gigaset SL910 A: of high quality material mix

The exterior is characterized by the 3.2-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, which is surrounded by a real metal frame. The weight of 162 grams leaves the SL910 A tired hand and supports the significant impression. This also applies to the charging station, which is framed in metal and is very stable as a result. Back a plastic lid in piano black finish covers the battery and speaker. A cleaning cloth should however be within reach because the glossy display shows fingerprints.

The display allows Smartphone comfort as we know him and appreciate. So the main menu consists of three sides transversely by swipe finger: one shows the keyboard, one lets the answering machine control and one with features such as baby alarm, clock, calendar, speed dials and of course the address book show. The latter contains 500 entries three numbers a and can by hand or filled with software by Outlook contacts are, either via Bluetooth or USB.

Contacts from the mobile phone could add only with older models that support the not so common OBEX profile. Also assign caller images is awkward: are not transferred from Outlook, but have about the software on the phone and there manually assign. Custom ringtones can be uploaded too, an editor helps the loop creation from WMA, WAV and MP3 files.

Gigaset SL910 A: rubbing shoulders with the phone

Keys there are only three: dial-up, end and menu. The latter should serve also as backspace, over the small arrow on the screen, it is somewhat cumbersome. The touch screen responds not so precise and fast as the iPhone, but manages the operation quite well. Wedged between head and shoulder’s is whether admittedly not too sure, also a belt clip is not present slim line. The hands-free function allows a proper intercom for that, otherwise, the sound beyond any doubt was raised.

The power consumption was 1.6 Watts in the connect-mix at the average level. This is a full eco mode to reduce radiation on board. Overall, the SL910 is A a good start in the touch screen segment with potential for improvement in detail.
