Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

The simple way to go pro

The simple way to go pro
When you’re taking photos under bright conditions and cannot see the subject’s face, use the backlight mode and get a clear picture using Smart Auto 2.0 ( For Still Shots & Videos). Scene detection technology identifies up to 16 different shooting conditions once you choose and condition it, analyses key elements of your composition.

Show both sides of the story

Show both sides of the story
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but one photo doesn’t always tell the whole story. Picture in Picture lets you insert one image within another — for example, a shot of a game-winning homerun framed by the cheering crowd. You can even adjust the size and position of the smaller shot how you wish— so you can remember complete picture, the way you experienced it.

Create stunning photos with Magic Frame

Create stunning photos with Magic Frame
Turn a portrait into an old film still, or put a friend’s face on a billboard. With Magic Frame, it’s easy to create clever, high-quality images. Just select one of the built-in background templates, like Wall Art, Full Moon, Magazine or Holiday. Point the camera at your subject, align it within the on-screen template and capture the fun — to hang on your own wall or to share!

Bring on the laughter

Bring on the laughter

Intelligent Portrait helps you figure out all the angles — and lets you choose the best one.

Smart Face Recognition + Face Tracking
