Samsung Replenish (onyx black, Boost Mobile)

 

The Samsung Replenish joins Boost Mobile's network as its most affordable Android phone. Originally released for Sprint last spring, Boost's Replenish has Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a portrait QWERTY keyboard to complement its touch screen, and Mobile...

The Samsung Replenish has Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a QWERTY keyboard, and a surprisingly decent 2-megapixel camera

There's no Flash support in the browser, and the Replenish feels a bit cheap and cramped. In addition, the processor is a little laggy

Keep in mind that the Samsung Replenish is an entry-level smartphone, and you may enjoy the Android handset's QWERTY keyboard and camera. If it's quick browsing you're after, keep looking.

There's something about a green phone that really tugs at the heartstrings, but over the years Sprint has been determined to yank as hard on those cords as possible. Recyclable handsets like the Samsung Restore, Samsung Reclaim, and LG Remarq took...

Samsung Replenish (arctic blue, Sprint)

 

Just as we were suspecting that the environmentally aware phase of cell phone construction had waned, Sprint announced the Samsung Replenish, its first eco-friendly Android phone after the rush of the LG Remarq , Samsung Restore , and Samsung Reclaim .

The Samsung Replenish has a tactile QWERTY keyboard, a surprisingly decent camera, and a wallet-friendly price. Made from recycled and recyclable material, it's also easier on the planet.

The lack of Flash support in the browser limits the Replenish, and its build feels a little cheap. Both virtual and physical keyboards can feel cramped, and call quality could be better.

With a price tag of just $50, the Samsung Replenish offers good value as a basic, easy-to-use Android phone, and one that's environmentally conscious to boot.

Samsung Replenish

 

Environmentally friendly, "green" phones started popping up about two years ago, with the debut of the Samsung Blue Earth and Sony Ericsson GreenHeart feature phones in the summer of 2009. Initially I thought the idea was a bit of a gimmick. But here...

Sprint ID Green Pack offers neat apps and widgets ; Ecofriendly design and features

Buggy performance ; Below-average camera

Although you might feel like a better person for buying an ecofriendly phone, the Replenish's specs and features are largely underwhelming.

Samsung Replenish (Boost Mobile)

 

The Replenish runs Android 2.3.6 "Gingerbread," and Samsung has done very little to modify it. You won't find any TouchWiz UI extensions here, and there's very little in the way of bloatware or preinstalled apps, aside from Mobile ID. Mobile ID allows...

Good voice quality. Solid QWERTY keyboard. Eco-friendly. Excellent monthly rates

Dim, fuzzy display. Low-end specs. Poor camera. Short battery life

The Samsung Replenish will work if you're seeking an eco-friendly, keyboarded smartphone on Boost, but there are better options available.

Samsung Replenish (Sprint)

 

The single biggest advantage of this form factor is the four-row QWERTY keyboard, sitting right out in the open ready to be typed on. The keys felt a little gummy and chintzy, but I could type on it relatively quickly. Anyone coming from a BlackBerry...

Solid voice quality. Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Plenty of green cred

Dim, fuzzy plastic screen. Sluggish. Poor battery life. Subpar camera. Function buttons feel cheap

The Replenish's form factor and green aspects are great to see, but the poor-quality screen ruins the experience.

When it comes to technology, there's no arguing that cell phone manufacturers are at the cutting edge, but there are still very few that are mindful about being eco-friendly in terms of production and distribution. So far, Sprint seems to be one of the...

Samsung Replenish and LG Marquee Give a Boost to Sprint

 

LG Marquee and the Samsung Replenish both come preloaded with Mobile ID. The customer can access apps, ringtones and wallpapers. When I first turned on one

Samsung Replenish Reviewed: Green Gimmickry?

 

The Samsung Replenish is an eco-friendly smartphone aimed at the entry level market, available through Sprint in the U.S. market. Powered by a 600 MHz processor and preloaded with Android 2.2, the Replenish doesn't have the most amazing of...

Overall the Samsung Replenish is a disappointing release into the entry level market from Samsung and easily ranks in as a 'Below Average' smartphone. The small screen, sub-par keyboard, lag, freezing and low quality camera make the Replenish a...

Review: Samsung Replenish

 

Samsung offers yet another Earth-friendly handset for the Sprint network, this time in the shape of a monoblock Android QWERTY smartphone. The Replenish should renew your faith in the power of recycled materials.
