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.

Not my Favourite

I like the touch screen functionality, but it becomes non-responsive after only a short time owning it and must be re-calibrated often. While browsing the internet, the phone shuts itself off.

If phone is set to "No ringer when turned upside down", the phone still rings, so it is a pointless setting. There is not much battery life even when only in standby mode. I have seen and used much better from Samsung. Disappointed in this model despite the nice look/style of the handset.

Just okay

I find this phone to be sufficient for what I need, but am frustrated with some of the features. While the keyboard works great, the touch screen leaves something to be desired.

I often find it slow to react, an can't always get what I need done as fast as I'd like. It's also very easy to mistakenly hang up a call when you are reaching to answer your phone

worst phone ever

NOTE: I would have given this phone zero stars, but the site wants you to enter at least one!! This is a frustrating phone to use. The touch screenis sluggish and slow to respond.

It often freezes for a moment when you are using the keyboard or numberpad, and you almost always have to touch an icon more than once before it registers. Also, the menus are not very intuitive, and it often takes several steps to accomplish something that you should be able to do without so much digging around. For example, it takes 6 steps to turn off the keypad beeps... and I had to google it to find out how to do it. Also, if you have built-in bluetooth in your car, you can use this phone HOWEVER it will not auto-pair with your car and you have to set it up every single time you get in your car. Very inconvenient. Overall I have to say I find this phone very disappointing, and not at all what I would expect from a Samsung product. If you are looking for an inexpensive phone that is enough to get the job done... keep looking. The low price tag is not enough to make up for the design flaws in this phone. I would not recommend this phone for purchase to anyone.
