BTW Did anybody mention that My X-8 casing is not in some kind of cheap plastic but Aluminium!!! 8 )
I never go for a Suikei b4 and never intended to cos i don't see any point. The seller will change some inferior parts i.e. the battery etc. Anyway I don't think there's any suikei for Sagem.
Honestly, i haven't actually try playing MP3 long enough to test the battery but compare with the battery life of my 1st Sagem phone My X-6, My X-6 battery life is anytime better than My X-8. Don't understand why My X-6 type of battery is not design into My X-8. The battery strength of My X-6 was something like 1280AmH (which obviously is better) compare to 900Amh of My X-8.
If you stay in Selangor, (not sure if there's any authorise dealer in other state) you should try to get the phone from PhoneStar instead. I tried to get from lots of other shop but they have to order it for you.
if u want my opinion, this phone is UGLY if u r comparing it to the Sam D500 and SE K700i, u r wrong man, it's uncompareable, u see that Sam is more stylish and has better features than SE such as the higher memory (96 MB) while the Se has only 41 MB, it has a gr8 camera and it's Samsung for god's sake
hey guys i am interested to buy this phne plz tell me which one is better sagem x8 or samsung d500 or sony k700. and does this phone support videos like avi and other like nokia and nokia software like smart movie plz answer..
just want to know if the phone do not support a mini-sd card from take-ms.
I have a take-ms 128 mb mini-sd card and it works fine in my computer, but when i put it in the phone it do not work
please.. can sombody help?
The sagem my x-8 is the best phone for me and i want to buy it in your company if is money iwill pay you ok
the best sagem yet , i have had all the sagem range and always went back to the myx-7 until the myx-8 can along.
Please tell me about a cell phone with as high as or better screen resolution, than MYX-8. I mean number of pixels, number of colours and the screen size, all the three parameters should be accounted for.
Sagem is great. I am using MYX-7 for the last one year, and soon I will buy MYX-8. User of Sagem for now almost 2 years. Never had problems. One question: Is there a phone in the market with a screen resolution as high as MYX-8?
Thanks blindspot and nathan for providing answers
Blindspot : Suikei? underwater machine? :P was thinking of getting mine some time soon but hopefully from official distributor, i asked recently and the orice qouted was RM1699, with 1 year warranty. problem is, many shop don't have the model anymore (out of stock they say)
When you use the phone to listen to MP3s does the battery life drop dramcatically?
still thinking still thinking...
Well I think I have to clarify some of the questions around:
>> 1) Is the phone compatible with Macintosh computer, iMac G5?
Definitly YES. It works perfectly well with my G4 iBook and the build in Bluetooh. You can download Sagem "My Pictures And Sounds (MPAS)" for Mac at planetsagem.com.
The Wellphone Software Package that mainly brings you Outlook synchro is not available on Mac. But the MyX-8 supports SyncML, so I think you might be able to sync it with your Mac somehow. Never tried it, only used MPAS.
>> 2) If yes, could it be synchronized with Mac OS applications, eg. Address Book, iTunes, Messaging etc.? or else is it needs some specific software for synchronizing and data transfer?
You can transfer all kinds of video and audio files or pictures, ringtones etc.
Never tried synchro on the Mac.
>> 3) What's the max. of capacity of the miniSD can support, any crash?
1GB miniSD will be available soon. The phone should support them without probs. It definitly supports 512MB. No crashes yet.
>> 4) What's the actual resolution of the 1.3M pixels photo captured, 1024x960++?
>> 4) Can the SMS be transferred via bluetooth to Mac computer?
Never tried that. Ask me via ICQ if this is still of any interest. I will try it out when asked.
>> 5) Actually, may I have a 1 that the list that shown the items which can be transferred from the phone (its memory/miniSD) to the computer via bluetooth / USB cable / miniSD reader device or vice versa.
Don't understand that question. Via Bluetooth or cable you only can transfer stuff to the build in memory of the phone. The miniSD Card needs an external card reader. But that's no flaw IMHO because the card reader is way faster than cable or bluetooth. What I don't like about that compared to e.g. Nokia is that you cannot save pictures or videos taken with the build in cam directly to the sd card. But you can copy all media files from the phone to the sd card an vice versa.
You will only need the cable to update the firmware. All other data transfer can be done via bluetooth.
Btw. no batterie heat problems with my phone. No network problems either, very good signal ratio, way better than my Samsung SGH-E700.
Feel free to contact me on ICQ 40171496.
just got myself a my-x8 and i just simply love it! this is my first sagem phone and it's not going to be my last. i am impressed! cool looks and features. only complaint is the weak volume from the audio player when using earphones.
Sorry, forgot to let you know, Got it for RM1888.00 (Sometime after CNY). Come w/ 128MB minisd card and the minisd cardreader with USB cable to PC. My advice is, try to negotiate without the minisd card and get it separately somewhere else. The one came together is not from sagem and no brand (a cheapo)
To insert/remove the minisd card, you have to remove the back cover of the phone. Its locate very near to the plug connector at the bottom of the phone. So far I have insert/remove the minisd card without switching off the phone without any problem. Honestly, somtime i have some connection problem when making a call but i think its the service provider's network problem since i'm not the only one have this problem in my working place. As for battery heating up... its not THAT back really...
I was wondering where is the mini-SD card slot, i can't see it in most reviews.
and the thing about the phone battery heating up, is it only to the phone -no man- bought? or does it happen to all the Sagem My X-8s?
really love the looks of the phone, but the battery heating up thing and the part where people can't here you when you call them is worrying.
So what's the price of it in Malaysia?
