The GS160.
Cheap, plastic, low end smartphone. It doesn't have the premium feel of ME Series, but is a new try to hit the market.
Nowadays competitors are way fierce, even more with Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE and a couple more, making good products. things we wouldn't think of a few years back...

Automated translation of the review here.

My main question about it is if it has anything Siemens in its "soul"...

short answer: This one, NO.
also, in the current smartphone era, that is virtually close to impossible.
but the previous expensive ME series launched back in 2015, yes, we could see they had. Even nowadays the ME and ME pro specs are good. even the pure.
But the big price, the limited availability to germany, made it a low volume profile.
That was a bad start, limiting to 1 or 2 countries...
