I agree the phones battery does have a flaw, in that you think you have more battery life than you truely do.

Interesting comments on the battery. I've had my My X-5 for a week and am having a replacement sent out tomorrow. The handbook quotes a standby time of 10 days but I've only got 2 days out of it, which is, quite frankly, appalling. Just hope it was a dodgy battery. I also charged it for the full 16 hours before using it, although the handbook said it only needed 4 hours. Does anyone use the eco mode screensaver and does it make a huge difference? Otherwise, it's an impressive phone: easy to use, good colour screen and no else has seen one before, let alone heard of Sagem!

You don't have to have a datacable to get wallpapers, screensavers or anything to the phone, you can get stuff via wap(when you see summit you want d/ling just press the green button(options)then just go down to save) or even infra red (in essence the same as a datacable but comes as standard on laptops and such.

the Sagem MY X-5 mobile phone is low price - many possibilities!
This mobile phone rocks! The high quality sound (wav, Midi, iMelody included!) and the colour display will take this mobile phone into the upper class! The costumation functions are unbeatable. But: you'll need to have a data cable to use all the functions the My X-5 offers. It would take too much time to describe all the features.
But one thing is for sure: I highly recommend it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2002 by Tom. (1 review written)

For the price (£140 inc. £15 airtime from Virgin) the Sagem MY X-5 is a cracking little mobile phone. The navigation is easier than my last nokia, which seems like a brick by comparison (3years old now).
There are some strange ringtones with only one 'normal' one (sonar & boathorn are great:), but you can have any sound you like, data cables only £10 or download via the phone… Read Full Review

This Sagem MY X-5 mobile phone is great. I've only had it an hour and I can already find my way round the menus (it's that easy) unlike some phones I've had in the past. The backgrounds are great and the Ringtones are fab too. The MY X-5 is also a nice little looking phone (not a brick) and I would recommend it to everyone… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2002 by athertona2k. (1 review written)

The Sagem MY X-5 is an excellent mobile phone. Recently had a Nokia 3310 and a Nokia 5510, so I was unsure about this because the menus and features would be different. However, within less than an hour I had figured out how to use most of the functions. As for most of the other reviews, I have never had a problem with calls, I am with Virgin Mobile, and every call has been perfect. The only problem is, is when texting in ABC mode, the keys don't often respond as quick as the Nokia phones… Read Full Review

Yes, you can. Simply use the data cable or Infrared. I have been able to load great ringtones, wallpaper and screensavers onto mine. The X5 is a winner in style. And as a phone it comes out tops - great in-call audio and excellent signal reception.

Written on: 21/08/2002 by Ricky J. (1 review written)

reading some of the other reviews of the Sagem MY X-5 mobile phone, a lot of people seem to have problems with this phone but I can't say I have..i guess it solely depends on which network you are using it on - I'm using T-Mobile in the UK and I don't get any dropouts at all - wherever I am.
As for ringtones and graphics: if you can get hold of a data cable goto www.sagem.com and download their beta tone/logo transferrer. It enables any wav/midi file or some graphics to be transferred - so… Read Full Review

Hello. I had already posted a review of this phone... and it is an excellent phone. But the phone has SERIOUS problems holding on to a call. The phone keeps dropping calls after about a minute... couldnt even hold on to the call I made to Orange Customer Support!!

I was offered a replacement.... DONT ACCEPT ONE! If you do within 28 days of purchase, you will forfeit the right to an alternative model, and you cannot get a refund/cancel your contract. Orange made this point to me- good… Read Full Review

Now that's strange. I wrote a somewhat gushing review of this phone here, and I have to say, a fortnight or so on, I stand by it. I've had none of the problems you describe, and I'm still very pleased with it.

<br>That said, I wouldn't mind one of those sexy T68s *as well* :-)

Only Orange versions of this phone seem to have problems. Whether that is due to the network or the phone im not sure but I did here a rumour that Orange were recalling them all.

Written on: 06/08/2002 by Bigum. (1 review written)

Im on my second mobile now and both phones indicate strong signals but dont hold onto the network - result that you cant receive or make any calls or texts. I also have a problem in that some text messages received send the phone into a cycle where it says it is sorting text messages and the only way to make it stop is to remove the battery which is not too handy. There have also been occasions when the phone will end calls after about a minute and has resulted in me being forced to use a… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2002 by peterw. (1 review written)

The Sagem my X-5 is an excellent little mobile phone for the price. At thirty quid from Orange, if you're on a talk plan, it's a bargain.

In practical use, it's easy to use and the menus are very nicely laid out. The sound quality is reasonable and I didn't lose a call at all. The speakerphone feature is really handy too.

The colour screen makes a nice change, although it can be a little hard to use in very bright light.

The keys, while not as teeny as those on a phone like the Nokia 8210… Read Full Review
