For years, I use Gigaset phones. My date last Gigaset SL550 was. With this phone I was extremely pleased over 10 years and it has never let me down, looked until recently like new.
Since I now my telecom connection have converted to IP, I wanted to change my phones and what could be more natural than a new Gigaset phone.
After I initially chose a S400H me this phone but a piece was too small and was far unmanageable during a long telephone, I have now decided for the S810 2.0.
However, I'll still another, acquire another, Phone to - more on that later.
**** **** Impression
The first impression was: plastic, a lot of plastic.
However, the S810 2.0 impresses with a high quality plastic processing and feels very valuable.
The feel is very good, the keyboard consists of slightly raised keys, which are relatively small, but have a pleasant pressure point. The illumination of the keypad is white.
It is striking that it is difficult to identify the label in daylight and illumination of the keyboard. Once the lights off, the labeling of the keys is more noticeable. In the dark, it looks quite different. Since the markings on the keyboard at all times correctly identified.
The color display is big enough and the display quality is 128 x 160 pixels in 8 lines in yet sufficient range.
The S810 2.0 has 2 AAA batteries.
The S810 2.0 is 146 mm long and 26 mm thick. Where the S810 2.0 is significantly thinner than the top down.
It may be that will put on the table and stands very safe. Advantageously in speakerphone.
The equipment is extensive: bluetooth, calendar, speakerphone, baby alarm, alarm clock, appointments, USB port, 500 phonebook entries and much more ..
A printed manual is now also rather rare.
**** *** Terminal
The Gigaset S810 2.0 with the base Gigaset box 100 and a charger I bought for connection to a FritzBox 7390 and 7490, which is located at a telecom VoIP connection.
The Gigaset S810 2.0 can thus be registered directly to the integrated DECT station FritzBox 7390 and 7490.
The application to the Fritz box was done in a few seconds and went very smoothly.
If you want to use all the functions that would use 100 provides the base box, you have to plug it in and connect it to the base, the base to a free port of the Fritz box (Fon1 or Fon2).
**** **** Use
Call quality is excellent. The caller is understood excellent and you will even understood properly. No disturbances.
The Geräteeistellungen are made largely intuitive and fast.
The ring tones are a bit sparse and I actually only 2 sounds found satisfied me, but that's a matter of taste. In addition, you can download and install their own sounds.
When S810 2.0 plugged into the docking station, you can set that the analog or digital clock is still displayed on the display. The but you can also disable.
The S810 has 2.0 inside (behind the battery cover) a mini USB port, and on the left a headset socket.
I'm going to another, another, acquire Gigaset phone that my telecom ISDN phone will replace that of a VoIP connection still can be used on the S0 port of the Fritz box, but does not make sense, since some features are no longer supported.
This phone I will review later.
**** **** Criticism
Criticism of the S810 2.0 is hardly appropriate. Very good workmanship, extensive facilities, despite plastic top design. The S810 2.0 is a high quality and compact phone for use at home.
Critically evaluate I would the poor recognition of the key label in daylight. But that's about all.
**** Conclusion ****
A high-quality phone with a top equipment.
It gets from me deservedly the full 5 stars.
I hope I could help some to a certain extent in the decision.
