Samsung Replenish Review
Of all things, calling quality with the handset rises above almost everything else since voices are seemingly natural in tone and clear – with no evidence of any distortion whatsoever. Additionally, the earpiece outputs enough powerful tones to make even the softest of voices sound more than audible. Switching to the speakerphone though, we’re not too thrilled with the muffled sounding voices emitted by it – albeit, it’s still powerful enough in tone to make out words.

Always getting a solid connection to the network in high coverage areas in the greater Philadelphia region, we didn’t experience any major fluctuations in signal strength. At the same time, it didn’t drop any phone calls as well during our testing.

Battery life appears to be slightly better than most other smartphones because we managed to get 1 ½ days of normal use on a full charge. However, it’s worth mentioning that we set its brightness to the lowest setting, and used the handset primarily for web browsing, emails, text messaging, and the occasional phone call.


Conclusion:

Not all eco-friendly devices get as much love as the Samsung Replenish, especially when it’s running an equipped smartphone platform, but there are still some other exciting things attached to it that make it rise above most things. For starters, its $49.99 on-contract pricing is more than acceptable, especially when it operates at a decent rate, but even better yet is the fact that Sprint will waive the usual $10/month premium data fee that’s normally associated with its smartphones. On top of that, you have things like its recycled plastic exterior and optional solar charger that aids its capacity in helping out the environment in more ways than one. In the end, the Samsung Replenish does exactly what it’s sought out to do – and that’s giving some rejuvenating presence to some green-friendly initiatives.
