Sagem myC5-2

 Sagem myC5-2 open Discontinued
20th October 2004

The Sagem myC5-2 is Sagem's first camera clamshell phone, aimed primarily at the budget market like other Sagems. The myC5-2's internal display is a reasonable 128x160 pixel STN unit in 65,000 colours, with a VGA resolution (640x480 pixel) camera on the back just above the battery compartment. There's a smaller external monochrome display of 96x64 pixels.

 Sagem myC5-2 closed Sagem are not clear about the frequencies of this phone, but we believe that it is a tri-band GSM phone, although other reports indicate that it may come in two dual-band variants. The myC5-2 also supports GPRS and Java, has a WAP browser and is capable of MMS messaging. Internal memory is 3.7Mb which isn't a huge amount, but will store a useful number of pictures.

In design terms, the Sagem myC5-2 lacks the good looks of the very rare myC3-b, but it is distinct enough from most other handsets to look slightly interesting. It's a lightweight phone though, at only about 80 grams.

Sure, the myC5-2 isn't the most technically advanced phone in the world, but it's a good entry level choice. The main problem here (shared with rivals Sendo and Alcatel) is that Sagem are strictly a second-tier manufacturer, and although they have shown that they can produce perfectly decent handsets, they seem to be stuck on the bottom end of the market - even though both Sendo and Sagem have added decent Smartphones to their ranges.

The Sagem myC5-2 should hit the shops before Christmas, initially for Vodafone/SFR customers (most likely pay-as-you-go), most likely for around 190/120 on pay-as-you-go.
