takes good pictures during the day, but the camera on this phone does not respond well to atifical lighting therefore when the sun sets your stuck with a slow blurry viewfinder. pictures indoors look faded wihtout any realistic colour.close ups are appauling so you can forget even thinking about macro.(my old sagem my-x6 took better close ups!) good video, bit blocky but movement is captured fast wihtout any freezes. no settings for the video and no zoom or pause rewind functions and by the time it takes to store and view pictures/videos you can watch the paint go dry. slow aint the word and the vodafone live is crap with having to set connection time every time you browse cause if you try to download items and it takes longer then 60 seconds youve lost £2.(set the connection to no time limit) overall the call quaility is decent and battery life is ok. three/four days mine lasts. the style and shape of the my v-76 looks good and is impressive, comparing it to nokias i prefere the modern futuristic design of this phone.
i suppose if your going for a day out and want to take some pics the results are not that bad, and for a phone which many functions its slim size means you can carry it around in your pockets no problem.
6 out of ten. sagem my-v76's ok i guess
Good phone, but does not have EMS support, unlike all the other sagems I have owned, which was a great disapoointment, nor does it have a flash, and as usual your stuck with vodafone's boring red/grey colour scheme, and slow menu structure, the lack of being able to change the colour scheme ruins what otherwise would have been an excelent phone, I've had it 3 months, of which 2 and a 1/2 months it has spent in it's box as vodafone really fails to meet the standards I feel mobile phones of this calibre should have.
Finally got this two days ago...initial impressions- Love the look of this phone,it doesn't suffer the cheap feeling that some of sagem's previous efforts had..it's quite solidly built and the white finish gives this an overall classy feel..The screen is fantastic,amazingly bright and clear.Sound quality is superb through both the earphones and loudspeaker- mp'3 sound loud and very clear,certainly puts my D500 to shame!UI is simple to navigate around although it can sometimes be a bit slow to respond to key presses.Bluetooth works well with sending and recieving files,call quality is good,MMS & SMS work as expected,Wap pages are pretty quick to load.....all good stuff.Now to the problems i've found- first the camera,i found this to be the biggest dissapointment...it may be 1.3 MP,but it ain't one of the better ones.I've taken several photos under different lighting situations and they've all came out rather blurry and poor in detail,they also seem to lack brightness and overall colour saturation,to be honest there's vga camera's out there that produce better results as far as i'm concerned...i'm also slightly dissapointed at the lack of manual brightness control.Another grey area is midi playback- i'm not sure how many chords this phone is meant to be able to play,but ringtones just seem to be lacking in quality.Another slight niggle is the lack of any colour scheme or theme support,your forced to look at the typical red and white vodafone menus- I believe the original non branded handsets may have a few colour schemes as a review of the my x-62 i read recently mentioned them,and i remember my myx-7 had some,but i suspect they were trashed when vodafone hacked the firmware to bits.Overall if your looking for a good solid music playing phone for a reasonable price and are not too bothered about good quality photos......i'd reccommend it.
The phone is really good. I have only 1 problem with this phone. Sometimes when people send me mp3 through bluetooth, it finishes and says "bad format". Can any1 help with this problem. Any help much appreciated. Other than that it is a great phone, it has a great camera and the sound quality is really good. Thanks
my phone wont come on . ive tried charging it but still wont come on ,can you please help me?
i just wanna know is this a really good phone and how much out on 10 would u giv it?
i saw this phone 4 sale 4 £130 is it worth it?
Nice phone for the tiny price.
But some functions are not so detailed as Sony ericsson mobiles. (ex: Alarm clock can't be programmed for only some day in the week...)
I can't find how to send java games by IR.
mp3 player is very long to response when playing songs... we cannot do other thing while hearing music.
Vodafon menus are awfulls. some functions have disapered from the 6-2 ( like the small list/menu on the main menu)
It's very awfull to type SMS on it ( we can't stay on function CAPS and switching between ABC and 123 is not easy because you have to pass by T9 ( which can't be desactivated)
Battery life seems to be half from my 3 year old T65!! ( about 4 or 5 days for the MY V76)
MP3 sound is really great! 3gp video is great for a mobile.
There is no flash but miror!!
Synch by IR works well but slowly
Timer don't work every time??
is it possible to put in it a 512Mo transflash card? or just 256?
Is there any one who change the Firmware into My V 6-2?? ( by itself or with after sales..)
"send e-mails from this phones is easy"
this phone doesnt have pop3
_menu is awfull same vodafone live one any way... comes with 32 mb card in the box.
_send emails from this phone its cool and easy!
_nice calendar (vodafone menu) "to do" is perfect, not the second alarm clock (weekly one) many phones have nowadays...
_different positions for the greek letters on the keypad (for sms)than the nokias ,s/e, samsungs and sharps but thats ok i got used to it!!!
_constructions is solid nice plastics classy lookin white shiny keyboard not getting dirty (so far). Try not to take off the covers alot or u'll get dust on the lens!
_No radio. mp3s with the headphone are super nice sound surprisingly! plays even without the headset too!
Very nice features. Infra, B/T, Mem.card (up to 512), 1,3 m/p camera (8x digital zoom), full screen clear video, mp3 player,easy to use navigation key and "ok" button, nice lookin phone, solid, crystal clear with nice colours display!!!!
Sorry for the battery life-2,5 days with normal use-, to many oks and green buttons to send sms or using the call list, vodafone menu (sucks), difficult mem card diode, no flash (but nice workin night mode) and no radio!
Go buy it with out asking any else!
with the price u get its perfect all the features and more. I'm very happy do have one and pride for the classy appearence of my v 76. Oh and remember!!!! what ever i wrote goes for the "my x-62" cause the company gives them as the same mobiles (only diffirent companies voda or O2 or TIM or T-mob etc).
ti is a small review for u all...
not big not small and kind of lux looking phone.
_display is awsome although there are better out there (more expensive though). big and clear u can see easily whats written on the screen even the sun directly on it!!! nice colours,bright and clasy!
_Keypad, very user friendly 'cause it has big keys. Big enough for mine though :-) ! never mind its white, it won't get dirty, its glossy and look like its an expensive phone! Around the silver "ok" button there is a circle navigation key easy to use easier than 6230s, D500s, k750s, 6680-1s or others for people having big fingers like me.
on the left there are 3 buttons one for the ringtone level (up or down) or for callin voice volume and one b. for starting up camera or capturing a pic. On the other side there is only the infrared port.
Front is luxurious white and silver on the back all silver and at the upper part is the 1,3mp video/camera with mirror and NO flash! the usb port is down where the recharger port is.
_infrared its ok. Bluetoth works perfectly. synchronization works fine too, with no hungs or "restarters" (nice work sagem).
_wallpapers,screensavers,mp3 ringtones, crystal clear speaker (very very strong one).
_camera is awsome nice pics nice colours on the pc and on paper when i tried to print them. like havin a dig.camera (short of). camera is very fast it has a delay timer to try to get ur poition b4 taking the pic 4 diffirent sounds for the shutter or no sound at all. nice!!! Pictures are clear on the screen and easily transfered to a pc by infra-bt-or usb dongle(cable). it has night cloud shootin pics mode etc , and grey scale-sepia etc from 320x240 to 1280x1024 pixels analysis.
Video--->> superb FULL SCREEN according to the mem card u tape more minutes... surprisingly very clear videos with loud sound (yeah SAGEM!!!).
_mem card is put after u've taken off the front cover too and "dive" it inside! it supports surely a512mb card (tiny-transflash).
_no full games only demos so as u have to download them from the vodafone live; clever aren't they???
_foolish thing is too many oks to send an sms (about 6 oks) and 3 green buttons to call from the call list. Really annoying and stupid.
_battery life, the first time after i bought it lasted 18 hours with a 12 hour charging. iKnow i got used t it not using the cam alot and it last aproxim. 3 days. But if u use the camera alot don't expect more tha 2,5 days!
Great phone, brill spec. but now more usable with a 512meg card for the MP3 player, now take over 100 songs!!!
my does not have flash with the camera.
And does anyone know how or if you can take pictures straight to the memory card? instead of copying them from the phone.
http://mobile.softpedia.com/phones/Sagem/Sagem-MY-V-76.shtml according to the specs here it DOES have a flash
I ain't sure what size card will come with the phone,there's no info or specs on the phone on amazon,and don't really know if it has a flash,it's damn hard trying to find any info on this phone.....it's not even on sagem's own website,will need to wait till i get the thing.
does it have flash with the camera or the specifications are wrong?were can i find pictures of the whole phone? i ve only seen its front!
Amazon.co.uk are selling these for £99.99......go get one,can't wait till mine arrives!
Like phone but having problems. At switch on display goes to egg timer and locks, only solution is to take battery out. Started intermittently at first, but ended up every time phone was switched on. Phone replaced after 3 weeks, new phone is now starting to go the same way. Any one else having the same problem?
in greece comes with a 32mb card. it can easily support a 512mb card but it'll get a bit slow with so much data on it...
it can play mp3 files "with" the headset.
from my experience, i never needed bigger than a 512 card. when i take pictures (hao many...lets say 100) i download them to my pc.Then my card is free of memory again.
If ia download mp3s i'll listen to, for 1,2,3,4,5, times then i get bord and delete right away so... no need of larger memory card. its o phone don t forget it...
Oh!! it does have changeble covers afterall.. nice!!! :-))
more in 7 days...
