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.

Turns self off randomly since it was new

I think the phone has good features and is easy to use. Unfortunately it randomly turns itself off multiple times a day and only resets if the battery is removed.

This really impacts how it helps you to stay in contact with people and availability in an emergency. It was sent away when it was new to be repaired but this was briefly effective.

2 defaults

this phone is great but is has 2 defaults wich seems confirmed by other review. the first one is that sometimes the phone close and we must remove and put back the battery to restart it.

the other is that it comes with android 2.1 and we can't officially (with samsung's kies app) upgrade it. So with 2.1 i can't move my app on the external drives wich would save me some place.

My very tech-savvy son saw mine and switched his phone for a Samsung.

I upgraded from a basic Samsung cellphone and now use my Galaxy GT-I550 to keep track of three separate social and business email accounts, and keepin touch daily with facebook friends and family.

When I first got it I was concerned that it had little in the way of instructions, but, within 2 or 3 days, found it to be simple and intuitive to use

Okay - when it works ....

I have had this phone for less than a year and it is okay ... when it works. Either my phone is defective or it is the worst Android phone I've everowned.

Keep in mind this is my first Android phone. Features okay, interface and operability is okay, once you get the hang of it, battery life is awful - 8 hours roughly, if I don't have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi on, 4 hours if I have Wi-Fi or BT on ... already purchased two other batteries and they are drained within hours too. I honestly would choose another model knowing what I know now - perhaps even another manufacturer altogether.
