Samsung Blue Earth S7550 ReviewSamsung Blue Earth 7.5
Whatever the eco-friendly features of a handset, you will still need to pollute the environment with radio emissions whenever you feel like making a call. Talking on the Samsung Blue Earth S7550 makes for a relatively pleasing experience, at least in terms of in-call quality. Sound is loud indeed, even if a bit sharp at times and ultimately we didn’t have any problems catching onto our callers, who also said things were fine on their end.
Keeping in mind you are actually able to charge the phone battery the whole day, you would hardly ever face any troubles relating to its average life on a single charge. We managed to get almost three full days out of the battery before we had to recharge it, although we didn’t use the device extensively during our tests and kept it in properly lit places almost all the time.
The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 is interesting in that it´s the first eco-friendly handset equipped with touch-sensitive screen and coming with contemporary design. Its functionality not only covers all the basics, but even goes even further. The phone is aimed at a (still) small market niche – people who do care about nature. If you happen to be one of them and need a handset with touch-sensitive display, you are out of options at this time – you should either go for the Samsung Blue Earth S7550 or wait until the LG Pop GD510 has hit the shelves. You should know, however, that the latter will come with body made of eco-unfriendly aluminum, while its solar panel will be an additional accessory.
Ordinary people who want the best bang for the buck and are not profoundly interested in saving trees, well, have better options than the Samsung Blue Earth S7550. There are many devices with much better functionality on the market now, like the Samsung BEAT DJ M7600 and Nokia 5800 XpressMusic that actually belong to the same price category.
The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 goes to show that modern handsets need not be environmentally unfriendly. We hope we get to see more similar products in the future, because it´s about time we started thinking about the environment that we share. Getting the ball rolling is always hard when it comes to novelty ideas and we know that, but we hope we will all manage to bring up a more environmentally conscious generation and the Blue Earth is a step in the right direction.
