Sprints' first "eco-friendly" Android device made from recycled bio-plastics, the Samsung Replenish features a pre-installed Sprint ID card and optional solar door charger.
"Although you might feel like a better person for buying an ecofriendly phone, the Replenish's specs and features are largely underwhelming."
"If you're looking for an Android phone on Sprint with a physical keyboard, well, you've found it. It's not the fastest, but you will be the first kid on your block with a "green" smartphone."
"What makes the Replenish environmentally friendly? Well, 82 percent of the handset is made from recyclable materials and the casing is 34.6 percent post-consumer recycled plastic content. This really doesn't affect the quality of the build, as we found the phone to feel pretty solid in the hand and not too plasticky."
"The Replenish is your standard smartphone. The real bells and whistles here are the eco-friendly features – recycled content, energy-efficient charger and post-consumer packaging. Aside from its small screen, the Replenish is perfectly capable of meeting the needs of an average smartphone user. The game-changer is its solar-powered battery charging case, which really makes it a practical purchase for treehuggers, tech savants and everyone in between."
