Interface and functions:

The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 runs the latest edition TouchWiz interface that comes with home screens, where you can place widgets and a main menu consisting of separate pages. Since we have already taken a comprehensive look at it in other reviews, say of the Samsung Jet S8000, we are not getting into details here, but we must tell you the Samsung Blue Earth S7550 is a snappy performer, despite the occasional lagging in certain applications and when scrolling the main menu. Unfortunately, the handset doesn’t have the multitasking capabilities of the Samsung Jet S8000.

The novelty features here are the eco functions. An application called Eco Walk is directly accessible from the home screen and shows you the number of trees you have helped to save, calories you have burnt and amount of carbon dioxide your trip would have produced if you had chosen to drive rather than walk. To get a proper reading, you should first customize your profile by entering the application menu and entering information about your step length, type of emissions your car produces (petrol, diesel, auto LPG), your body height and weight as well as how often the application counter should be automatically reset. Keep in mind the program uses the built-in accelerometer, so the reading is not absolutely accurate.

Being the vigilant, environmentally conscious people, we certainly decided to give the function a go. It turned out we had saved exactly… one tree and burned about 8 kilocalories. Feeling profound satisfaction with our accomplishment, we headed for the corner Burger King and pigged out on junk food. Long live the environment and the corner Burger King!

The Eco mode display setting is another eco-friendly feature of the phone. It helps you to save energy and extend battery life by decreasing the screen brightness and shortening the light time-out to 8 seconds.

The phone can also remind you to throw away the household waste or make sure you have not forgotten the water tap open. The function is quite entertaining at first, but will get you bored in a short while. Frankly, we turned it off after just a few minutes.

The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 has been designed with our environment in mind and this is great indeed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has failed to meet the needs of people who love texting and surfing the Internet. The former will be disappointed at the lack of QWERTY keyboard – they will have to rely on standard alpha-numeric layout, which is not that bad really given the great screen sensitivity. The phone browser has been developed by Access and feels rather unhandy and clumsy to use alongside of the WebKit-based application the Samsung Jet S8000 and Pixon12 ship with. Scrolling feels overly sluggish and pages visualize with a lot of errors, rendering the Wi-Fi and 3G (HSDPA 3.6Mbps) connectivity options virtually useless.
