Written on: 10/02/2004 by ellie (1 review written)

You can download good games and different levels for your Sagem MYG-5. With its good colour screen and downloadable backrounds it adds a bit of colour. Its pocket size makes it good to carry around.in many shops it is at a very reaspnable price for what you are getting. but the down side is i have looked and looked but i cannot find any interchangeable covers in shops… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/09/2003 by James Mcdougal (1 review written)

This is the best phone have had out of all of the phones i have had. I used to be a Nokia person but when i switched to Ericsson i found Nokia are not always the best option. The Sagem myG-5 is the next best things, it has everything a Nokia has but is just much, much better. If you want to compare it to a Nokia, size wise, its the Nokia 8310. But the features and everything about the phone is just so much better than all of these phones. A definite buy and i advise you to buy it!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2003 by Karlos. (1 review written)

I quite like the Sagem Myg-5, but the handbook says nothing about how to use the irda port, or how to record ring tones (which I believe to be possible).

Strange point, but it is not as comfortable on the ear as the Nokia phones.

Any advice on recording ring tones? Or using irda?

i also have the sagem myg-5 and i beleive that you cant record ringtones but you download them-some sing to you-some just ring. www.esato.com has colour pictures and (on wap) tagtag.com/sites/s/a/l/salokted/0.php3 has hi fi tones. i hope i helped. Sk8onchris

When i first had this phone i thought it was brilliant with a colour screen, great sounds and great games. But after two months i have taken it back 2 times for repair as it seems to be very faulty and this is a real downside to the phone. There is also lack of a calender which is disappointing. overall this phone is OK… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2003 by John. (1 review written)

Finally, a company decides it wants to join forces with a network and produce a phone together. And what a phone it is. THEY say its all about the gaming, and sure the gamings great with 3D in fuso games and all the sagem originals, but its much much more. It's exactly like the myX-5 apart from it has certain game and sound enhancements, and a different keypad. Its got eveything a new phone has, polyphonics, amazing games, some available for download, which by the way can be done quickly and… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/07/2003

I have had a myg5 for about eight months and i think that it is a cracking phone. You CAN download backgrounds - i've got about 200 - FREE. Despite having a massive memory on the phone, i've nearly used all of it up!! On wap, got to wap.esato.com and you'll find free backgrounds, screensavers and loads more. Also, google search the 'mobile web' and you'll porbably come across loads of free sites for hifi and polyphonic ringtones like i did!! You don't need a data cable. The only thing that i am unsure about is that i have heard rumours about being able to record ringtones - great if it works but i'm not too fussed.

I made this choice too, however my MyX5, looking so stylish and superior was beyond shody, and broke or froze at every prevailing moment of use. Also aged really badly and looked rubbish after about a month. Just been replaced by insurance (since it was finaly laid to rest) by my myG5, as they were out of stock for X5s. Thank God. There's a time and a place for classy sobriety. Phones aint it.

I bought this phone about 3 months ago now, although I kinda regret it. I didn't even get downloadable games up until about a month ago, non of the websites that do polyphonic ringtones do it for this phone. The best features of this phone is that you can hold a conference call, you can change the text message alert tone and the alarm actually wakes you up on a morning. Improvements on the phone would be if you could record the ringtones onto your phone like a memo - that would be a highly… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2003 by JimmyC. (1 review written)

This phone is a bit of a mixed bag. I was very impressed with it when I bought it but now I have significant reservations. On paper and at first sight it is excellent having many of the latest features. However it is let down by poor build quality and in the detail of the features. The standard phone is small and light with a bright and clear colour screen. It has polyphonic ringtones and also supports wave files. You can assign contacts to differing groups and the groups can have individual… Read Full Review

Why can't we ust be like everyone else dammit? Why is my phone forcing me to become a crazed internet combing it expert just to get a lame game, or something more fun than Liberty sodding X? I also think Sagem may employ chimps or close simian relations to assemble, design and manufacture their phones, the amount they break. Bit bitter, they look so fun and pretty. wolf in sheeps clothing?

Written on: 09/01/2003

Lol. it's supposed to look like that m8. It looks like a mini gameboy/phone because that's exactly what it was built for. Make no mistake, this is a VERY VERY special handset. This phone was specifically built for making playing mobile games much better fun, easier to play, which means you will enjoy the games more. But if you're not into gaming then maybe that's why you won't like the design.
It's a truly excellent phone in my opinion. I really like the look of it personally, it's completely feature packed, and is so small and light, it fits in your hand so neatly. Very reminiscent of a nokia 8310's size, the SAGEM MYG5 has a very solid feel to it. Fits into shirt pockets nicely too. The "real music" WAV ringtones that you can create or download free from the net sound unbelievably good.
A superb handset in every department in my opinion. If you're into playing games on your phone, this phone will be like a dream come true for you. You simply will not be disappointed.
From the moment you hit the power switch and the Mission 3D Game Demo starts rolling, you just know immediately that this ain't your average mobile phone. This phone definitely deserves top marks. I can't even stress enough just how good this phone is. 9/10 easily.

just to show you what I mean, check out some real pics of the handset.
http://www.threegmobile.net/itutelecomasia2002/index13.html
just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder really. In my opinion, the MYG5 is easily one of the most stylish looking handsets on the market right now. 10/10 for style inmy opinion. Just look at it next to the sony ericsson T300 for example! LOL. It's a non-contest really.
for me, the MYG5 wins on looks every single time. the sheer compactness and light weight of the phone makes it a joy to own. It is alos easily the best device ever made for playing games, and some of the entertainment and personalization features are simply extraordinary. The silver casing (which is exchangeable, front and back) has a hint of sky blue on it so that depending on which way the light reflects on it, it gives off a silvery/sky blueish look. It really is a magnificent effect.
A wonderful phone that deserves full praise in my opinion. The MYG5 is one of the best mid-market phones I have seen in a long while, and is an excellent alternative from the usual nokia, ericsson or motorola phones. E£verything about the phone simply screams Quality.
