The Sagem Puma was announced in February 2010 and was released in August 2010. The phone was designed and marketed as a rugged device that was durable enough to withstand tough outdoor conditions. The phone featured a durable rubberized casing and was water, dust, and shock resistant. However, the phone has since been discontinued and is no longer available for sale from the manufacturer or authorized retailers.
Design and Display
The Sagem Puma has a compact design with dimensions of 102 x 56 x 13 mm, and it weighs 115 g. The phone uses a Mini-SIM card for cellular connectivity.
The phone has a 2.8-inch TFT resistive touchscreen display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The display is capable of displaying up to 256K colors, which makes it capable of displaying high-quality images and videos.
The resistive touchscreen technology used in the Sagem Puma requires users to apply pressure to the screen to register touch inputs. This is different from the more modern capacitive touchscreen technology, which is more responsive and requires only a light touch to register inputs.
The Sagem Puma features a 3.15 MP main camera with an LED flash, which enables users to take photos in low-light conditions. The camera’s resolution of 3.15 MP is relatively low compared to modern smartphones but was standard for mobile devices of its time.
The camera can record videos, allowing users to capture moments in motion. The quality of the video recorded by the camera is not specified, but it is likely to be limited to standard definition (SD) due to the phone’s technical capabilities.
The phone also has a VGA selfie camera, which allows users to take low-resolution photos of themselves. VGA cameras were common on mobile devices of this era and are significantly less advanced than the front-facing cameras found on modern smartphones.
The Sagem Puma comes with a dedicated microSDHC card slot, which allows users to expand the phone’s memory up to 2 GB. The phone also comes with a 2 GB microSDHC card included, which provides additional storage for photos, videos, and other types of data.
In terms of internal memory, Sagem Puma’s phonebook is capable of storing contact information for multiple individuals. The exact number of contacts that can be stored is not specified, but the phone’s manual suggests that the device can store up to 1,000 contacts.
The phone also has a call log feature that allows users to view details of their recent calls, including the time and date of the call and the duration of the call. The call log can store up to 20 dialed, 20 received, and 20 missed calls.
Sound and Features
The Sagem Puma features a loudspeaker, which allows users to listen to music, videos, and phone calls without needing to use headphones. The phone also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which allows users to connect headphones or external speakers to the device.
The phone does not have built-in Wi-Fi, but it does have Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support, which allows users to wirelessly connect to compatible devices such as headsets, speakers, and car stereos.
The phone has a GPS and A-GPS sensor, which allows users to navigate using GPS technology and get more accurate location data using A-GPS. The phone also has an accelerometer and a compass, which enable it to detect changes in motion and orientation.
The Sagem Puma has a stereo FM radio with RDS support, which allows users to listen to their favorite radio stations. The phone also has a USB 2.0 port, which enables users to connect the device to a computer to transfer files and charge the battery.
Messaging features on the phone include SMS, MMS, email, and instant messaging. The phone’s browser supports WAP 2.0 and HTML, which allow users to access mobile and web content.
The Sagem Puma comes with built-in games, and it also supports Java MIDP 2.0, which allows users to download and install additional games and applications.
Unique features of the Sagem Puma include an integrated solar cell with a charge indicator, which allows the device to charge using solar energy. The phone also has a Bike Tracker, Run Tracker, and Pedometer, which allow users to track their physical activity. Finally, the phone has access to PUMA services, which provide users with access to exclusive content and offers related to the PUMA brand.
The Sagem Puma is powered by a removable Li-Ion 880 mAh battery that provides up to 350 hours of standby time. It can also provide up to 5 hours of talk time on 2G networks or up to 4 hours of talk time on 3G networks. The phone can provide up to 24 hours of music playback time.
The battery is user-replaceable, so users can swap out a drained battery for a fully charged one if needed. The phone is available in a black color variant and was priced at around 400 EUR at the time of its release.
It’s worth noting that battery life can vary based on a number of factors, including usage patterns, network conditions, and phone settings.
