Samsung Evergreen Review
Due to the lack of power emitted by its earpiece, you'll need to have an air tight placement to your ear in order to sufficiently hear anything. Even worse, voices on our end sound distorted with a little bit of static noise evident in the background. However, our callers fared a bit better since they said that out voice sounded expressive and clear cut. Thankfully, the speakerphone's strong output manages to make voice sound extremely audible, deep, and without much distraction.

Blessed with high coverage to AT&T's network, we didn't experience any aberrations with signal strength and it didn't drop any calls during our testing in the greater Philadelphia area.

Battery life seems to be average with the Samsung Evergreen as we obtained a talk time of 6 hours on a full charge when the manufacturer has it rated for 5 hours of talk and 250 hours of standby time. On a daily basis, the handset will easily hit the one day mark on normal usage and still have enough juice in the tank for the next day.


Conclusion:

If there's one thing that's clearly evident with most eco-friendly phones, it has to be that they're not all too appealing in terms of design – and the Samsung Evergreen follows accordingly. However, it proves to be quite functional at its core as being a messaging phone. Typically, the name of the game here is its focus on being eco-friendly, and rightfully so, it also manages to excel in that regard with its choice of recycled materials and environmentally conscious apps. Although there are better and more attractive messaging handsets out there, you undoubtedly will need to pay more for all the extra features and functionality. For $29.99, the Samsung Evergreen is a good choice for those who take a liking in the preservation of the planet – but don't expect it to turn heads.

Software version of the reviewed unit: A667UCJI2
