Review of Samsung's Replenish Smartphone



Specs:

Pros:
  • Made from 34.6 percent post-consumer recycled material. Phone as a whole comprises 80 percent recycled material
  • Comes with envelope for free, easy recycling at end of lifespan
  • Can download Sprint’s GreenID pack for free. Comes with some cool apps and links to environmental news sites.
Cons:
  • Small camera for a smartphone
  • Small but functional screen; not too pleasant for reading, but it gets the job done.
Takeaway:
The Samsung Replenish is not on the cutting edge of smartphone technology, but it is a solid, useful phone for a no-frills price. If you’re concerned with your environmental footprint and like the idea of going easy on the Earth with your phone purchase, the Replenish is a good option for a basic smartphone.
