i have had the myG-5 for a little while now and i can honestly say that this phone is such a gem. i am very pleased with just how pleased with my purchse of this handset. it is such an excellent phone in it's own right. i do not own a myX-5 so i cannot comment on it, although i do know that there are many similarities between the 2, because i know that the myG-5 is based on the myX-5.
but i would definitely recommend that you get the myG-5 because not only will you be able to download & play the ExEn games from In-fusio, but you will also be able to download Java (J2ME) games & applications too over a WAP connection because the myG-5 is also a Java (J2ME) enabled handset.
you can only get ExEn games on the my-X5 because it is NOT a Java (J2ME) enabled phone.
the my-G5 also has a gameboy style control pad which makes playing games a LOT better. if feels exactly like it should feel. it feels just like playing a gameboy game rather than the unconventional one-handed gameplaying nature of a lot of average mobile phones. this phone is desiged specifically with gaming in mind. the control pad really does make a big difference.
and imo the myG-5 is easily the better looking phone... i feel it has a far more cooler look to it than the myX-5.
for more info on the differences & similarities between the 2 phones just check out the information pages for each phone on this site.
the bottom line is that the myG-5 has more functions/features than the myX-5, and it is also better looking too imo.
but here is a link for more info and pics of the my-G5:
Hi! i considering ethier getting the SAGEM MY X-5 or the SAGEM MY G-5, which one should i get? and why?
No im 22 and i still think your comments are full shit and you are just another overrated dickwad schnulli!
Okay, for people who cannot see any difference and every second word is (censored), it is a cool display and when you drink enough beer, it seems to be MORE than 256 colours (when you took LSD it became Millions !!)
SAGEM says it were 256 colors, not more, not less :-))
Does your mother know about what she has done wrong in your education? Where do you grow up ? Full of hate !
I would have understand, if i wrote something ugly about your mother !
I like your comments. I guess you are 10 -14 years, right ?
Did i offence you ? I have critized the phone o:)
But your answers :-((
Nobody said: "You surely have configured the display of your PC to 256 colours !"
Do you ? Because 256 colours are great
:-)))(Although i believe you cannot count to 256).
hi guys try the above link ive just started a yahoo group !!!!NEW!!!!
Im not disapointed about my buy... Actually i got more than i bargained for, I didnt know this fone was soo lite. And the colour on this phone looks more like a 4096 colour display rathe than a 256 considering i have a nokia 7210.... But yeh in some ways id rather use the Sagem. But im totally against SCHNULLI.. What he said is totally full of SHIT... I THINK IM SPEAKING FOR EVERY ONE WHEN I SAY THAT SCHNULLI IS A SHIT LICKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh and i love the hotmail adressess. YOU GUYS ROCK
hello, i have just found out that sagem have now lauched a new official website for all sagem users where you can now download things like ringtones, wallpapers, graphics, screensavers and games etc. onto your your sagem mobile phone! it looks really good and it's free too, just quickly register first and then you will have full access to the site:
Sorry, in one point you are right:
"I have had an myg-5, t68i and MYX-5.And i dont see the difference between the colour"
Yes they all have the same, shitty 256 colours display and not 4096 or 65000 as REALLY COOL handys have !
if schnulli is spanish or whatever then fuck the spanish or south american, because this phone is good. in my opinion you dont need any more than what it already has!!!!!!!!
I say, good on those who chose the MYG-5 and fuck those like SCHNULLI who think there shit......... cause there not shit.. You dont need all that fancy shit all you want is colour screen EMS, SMS, MMS, games, WAP 1.2, GPRS, java, T9 and something small... So schnulli is an ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a MY-X5 and it is the worst phone, i ever had. The support by sagem is nonexistent. The display (same as in the G5) has crappy colours. Features, which other phones have since 4 years are missing. You cant transfer phonebook entries per IR (very old phones like Siemens S35i or Nokia 8210 can exchange). Phonebook entries only contain name and number. No e-mail adress (perhaps because the phone has no e-mail client :-(( ??).
No little organizer functions to see and so on and so on. Beside the crappy 256 colour display and polyphonic ringtones the phone has nothing, what phones from Nokia, Siemens, Motorola .. have.
And that is the "hightec-phone" of this poor company. Poor french ...
i find the phone very exciting, but can't find ringtones/songs for ringtones anywhere can u help?
actually it feels more like an 8310 than a 8210. the 8210 feels slightly thinner depth-wise than the 8310. 8310 is the that feels really solid. so yes this phone is more like a nokia 8310, only it's built especially for playing games.
right guys, i've just got this phone from the orange shop here in UK. i've had it for just over a week now, and i'm telling you guys this phone truly ROCKS! firstly, reading some comments below i can confirm that it's true what they have been saying about the colour screen, it doesn't seem like a 256 dislay AT ALL, the sheer clarity in the colours is a joy to behold... the screen is definitely superior to the t68. the phone is very compact and light, reminiscent of a nokia 8210 when you hold it in your hand, so small and fits in your hand perfectly. very light and you hardly notice it in your pocket. but the design feels so much more solid than the 8210. the menu system is simplicity itself and as i was coming from previously owning a nokia phone to this i was very pleasantly surprised.
To Clare: it hasn't got a calendar but like i said it's very simple to use and JAM-PACKED with features. i don't know how they managed to fit so much into a phone that costs only £120 on Pay as you go. to see most of the features look at the info page for this phone, i dont think they listed ALL the features actually. but the main reason why i got this phone was because i intend to be playing a lot of games on my phone since i dont carry Gameboys around with me, but i always carry my mobile phone and thats why i've been waiting for someone to have the sense to come up with a phone like this. and it's exactly for gamers like me that this phone was made for. it's a half Gameboy half-Mobile phone. but best of all it doesn't compromise itself at all when you are doing either activity. as a games machine, this phone is head and shoulders above everything else out there. as a mobile phone, it more than holds it's own, delivering excellent clarity of calls and a dazzling array of features for such a relatively inexpensive device. everything about this phone just SCREAMS QUALITY. from the moment you hold it in your hand you just know this is something special. the control pad/cross keys in the middle feel solid and it makes a world of difference from trying to play games on a traditional mobile phone design. this phone is a 2.5G device, it has a high quality speakerphone, downloadable games from In-fusio via the orange network, downloadable java games from the net, changeable operator logos: change operator logos via EMS (enhanced messaging service) NOT sms like in 2G phones. EMS is sms plus picture-art, ringtones, graphics etc all sent in the same message. if you try and change the operator logo using sms it doesn't work. it must be an ems message sent to you. technologically Ems is halfway between Sms and Mms... SMS>>EMS>>MMS. the phone lets you use high qaulity REAL music as ringtones (via wav files), polyphonic ringtones in different formats (midi, imelody, wav etc), infra-red, 10 DAYS standby battery, changeable front and back covers, currency converter, calculator, 3d animated screensavers & backgrounds, downloadable polyphonic ringtones & screensavers & backgrounds etc, Wap, GPRS, vibrate-alert, on screen call-counter, on screen date/time & clock, alarm, 400Kb memory for storing anything you want from games to graphics to sounds etc. and a whole load of other features that i just can't remember right now. basically, this phone is just SUPERB. i'm telling you. i was thinking of getting a nokia 7210 before but then i accidentally stumbled across this phone on a mobile games website and i immediately liked the design. this is EXACTLY the type of phone i've been waiting for for a long time now. so i decided to buy it and try it out and now i'm glad i did. i'm very impressed with it and now i wouldn't swap it for anything else now because it fits my personal requirements perfectly. for it's sheer value for money, number of features, design, ease of use, and general all-round high quality i'd give this phone a 9/10 EASILY.
