So I decided to sell my Gigaset GS5 (not lite).
It’s a bit sad as it is fast and has nice cameras, big screen, fast GPS/GNSS.
But as I repaired my XA2 and its clone, (another XA2), the GS5 would hang in a drawer doing nothing and that’s a too bad.
The main reason I came back to XA2 is that I can easily clone/sync it to have a spare phone always ready. I wasn’t able to find how to do that on the GS5. I also appreciate the XA2 being small, modest and cheap. The GS5 has bit too much power and luxury for me as my phone use is rather light.
The GS5 is in very good condition as you can see on the pictures.
It has SFOS and Waydroid (for Android Apps) running on it.
The vibrator is sometimes stopping working while typing, then comes back.
It will ship with:
-Its battery + box + booklet
-2 x protective cases (1 x new transparent, 1 x used black)
-2 x protective galss (1 x on the phone, 1 x spare)
-1 x USB cable
Price: 130€ +shipping.
I’d prefer an EU destination as customs became complicated with destinations outside EU.
Don’t hesitate to ask or PM me if you have questions.

-the battery is in very good condition too.
-I wasn’t able to make the vpn work although some other GS5 seem to have it working.
-It’s tricky to use 2 SIM cards on this phone, but finally works.
-Waydroid has no access to the GPS
-Calls are recorded but I could listen to them only with the PC or on the phone by fiddling but not directly in settings>phone.
