Tamagotchi ID Vs Tamagotchi + Color

So as promised here's a post comparing the two color versions : TMGC+C and the Tamagotchi ID. It's raining this morning and there wasn't enough natural light so some of the photos turned out a bit dark....I apologize for that.

Here they are side by side. The one on the left is the TMGC+C and the other is the ID. This photo doesn't really capture the difference but I noticed that the color screen on the Tamagotchi ID looks a lot better than the one on the TMGC+C. The colors are a bit washed out on the Tamagotchi + Color; I'm very pleased with this improvement.

...And, as you can see, the two versions can connect with each other. Characters which are not available on either version appear as Nazotchi which is the default character. P.S. notice the heart icons on the far right of each screen to see the difference between the colors.

The above photo shows the difference between the two units. I love the fact that the ID has a more streamlined case; it's also very comfortable to hold.
Having said all this, I do not like the new buttons, they're not very responsive...not at all actually.

While I was taking the above pictures, my Hoshitchi received it's first letter. I have no idea what's written on it...can anyone translate it for us?


On a side note, the seller from whom I bought the Tamagotchi ID also sent me a packet of Tamagotchi tissues which, I think, are so cute. They smell really nice too. Is anyone interested in buying them from me?


That's it for today. I might write another post later today when my Tamagotchi grows into it's teenage stage.

Before I sign off, here's the 3D picture I had made of Hoshitchi:

How much would you sell your tissues ?

How lucky you are to have an ID ^^ I'm looking forward to it.

don't really know lol. They're still sealed in a durable plastic packaging. There are 6 packets inside, each with different pictures from the Tamagotchi movie. I'm pretty sure they're a limited edition release. I think I would sell them for $5

The letter Hoshitchi received was from Gorippatchi.

The letter you received is from the TMGC+C. After they connect, the TMGC+C secretly writes a letter to the iD about how much the +C enjoyed connecting, and wants to visit the iD again.
*almost vomits* Yes! I would love to buy your tissues! But I don't have any way of paying you. :(

Jesmond, The Tissues Are Worth 210 Yen Around 2 USD. And Nah They're Not Limited Edition . They're From TamaDepa , A Store In Harajuku . I Went There Last Week, There's Plenty Of Where That Came From. (No I Dont Live In Japan ,I Was On Vacation Then )But 5 USD Would Do Since Its All The Way From Japan. But I Wouldnt Bear To Open A Packet To Use Them. They're Too Pretty.

Fun little fact. The reason the screen on the ID has richer colors is because it is an LCD. The screen on the TMGC+C is an OLED screen. OLEDs are said to have more accurate and realistic colors because they create light instead of blocking light as LCDs do. The OLED screen is certainly capable of producing the same rich colors, but the designers probably liked a more pastel look.

OLEDs also use much less power and are much thinner. I would expect the batteries to last longer in a TMGC+C than an ID.

The TMGC+C probably represents what the artist intended more accurately, but If you like the richer colors on the ID better, there's no problem with that.

Jesmond, also, at first the buttons are a little stiff. You just need to wear it out a little!
