How can I change the device name of an unrooted Android 7.0-based Gigaset GS170 smartphone so it appears with a meaningful/readable name e.g. in a router's list of connected wifi devices?
Various resources (e.g. this or this) suggest I should find a line saying Device Name in the About Phone section of the phone settings. However, I can see no such line there (images before and after scrolling down):
As the device is set to German, here are the translations of the items in their order of appearance:
- System Updates
- Status (Phone number, signal, etc.)
- Legal notes
- Model type number
- Android version
- State of security updates
- Baseband version
- Kernel version
- Build number
- Adapt creation version
Is there somewhere else I could look for that option, or is it something only supported by specific devices?
There are a few questions about this on this site (e.g. this and this), but those were posted several years ago, when early versions of Android with some "childhood diseases" (read: lack of basic features) were still the state of the art.
