Samsung Replenish Review
0. phoneArena 09 May 2011, 09:55 posted on
Happily, the affordable Samsung Replenish SPH-M580 is finally here not only carrying along some environmentally friendly initiatives with its production, but it also brings Android goodness in the form of a portrait style QWERTY device. Affordably priced at $50 on-contract, let’s hope that the experience is acceptable for this eco-conscious entry-level smartphone...

This is a great phone. I am a former Palm Pre user and this comes pretty close in features as to what I loved about the Pre. Battery life is not great...but the way this phone responds and sets things up is not too Droidy for me. I would recommend this phoen to those on Sprint looking for something that is more than a toy.

I bought four of them for my family due to a deal Sprint was having waiving the monthly smartphone fee (which personally I think is a sneaky add on - who would have a data package for a non-smartphone?). Although my husband and son's phone froze a good bit, my daughter's and my phone were ok,....up until mine died. They SAY that it has corrosion damage due to water. I NEVER EVER had it close to water, not even close to steam!!! I think it may have just been because it overheated. I had previously seen someone complain about this very same thing, but haven't yet been able to find that complaint again. However, I have seen a few complaints about overheating. EVEN THOUGH IT"S LESS THAN 5 MONTHS OLD, THEY SAY I HAVE TO PAY FOR A NEW ONE!

For the record I was told by my provider's tech that the corrsion issue is a constant problem with new, out of the box phones. I have never gotten my phone near any water and took it in for the same issue only to be told I'd have to shell out a $35 to replace a phone that I have not had for two months!!! I guess there's a reason they have a 14 day return policy on "deffective" phones. If this is a manufacturer issue, then why are the still selling the phones knowing that this is a perisistant problem?
