Samsung Reclaim Review

 

The Reclaim is a big step up for eco-friendly smartphones, and offers acceptable call quality and added features to boot.

Samsung Reclaim

 

These days, smartphones get all the buzz, but the vast majority of cell phones sold in the U.S. are actually feature phones: camera phones, music phones, waterproof phones, texting phones, or just plain voice phones.

Made from mostly recycled materials. Well-crafted slider mechanism and QWERTY keyboard. Solid music performance. Standard-size headphone jack

Short battery life. Sluggish Web browsing and video streaming. Not the greatest reception

The Samsung Reclaim is a solid messaging handset with plenty of thoughtful environmental touches.

Samsung Reclaim (Sprint)

 

The eco-minded will like the Samsung Reclaim, a svelte slider with a comfy QWERTY keyboard and plenty of green cred.

Made from mostly recycled materials. Well-crafted slider mechanism and QWERTY keyboard. Solid music performance. Standard-size headphone jack.

Short battery life. Sluggish Web browsing and video streaming. Not the greatest reception.

The phone's Access NetFront 3.5 Web browser was unusually slow to bring up WAP and HTML pages and felt gummy. This seemed more a consequence of a slow CPU than anything wrong with the browser, which the Reclaim's mediocre Java benchmark test results...

Samsung Reclaim SPH-M560 review:

 

With green living very much in the public consciousness, green gadgets are becoming more popular. Exactly what that concept means can vary--for some it's as simple as a device that uses less power--but manufacturers are applying the label to everything...

The Samsung Reclaim offers easy-to-use controls, midrange multimedia features, and an eco-friendly image.

The Samsung Reclaim's call quality wasn't completely top-notch and 3G speeds were a bit pokey.

The Samsung Reclaim is more than just a green gimmick. Its performance could be improved, but we welcome the messaging keyboard and functional feature set.

Samsung Reclaim M560 Review

 

Green is in, there's no doubt about that. Everything from cars to computers and even water is marked as green and eco-friendly these days, but oftentimes it is just that - marketing. The Samsung Reclaim M560 is not. Its bio-plastic housing is made from...

Samsung Reclaim M560

 

The Samsung Reclaim is a full-QWERTY slider that offers a nod to the environment with its bio-plastic shell and efficient charging system. And, of course, it's green. A nice shade of green. The 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 pixel resolution display offers crisp...
