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.

Worst phone I ever have in my life

Re-tarted with the phone, I had sent it 3 times to the repair center,spent 4-5 months their out of one year warranty period, and lastly received refurbished phone which worked a while too and phone stuck at do not enter logo "X" again.

worst product by Samsung. This model has bad problem with automatic rebooting issue while calling and boot failure. I suggest try to avoid restarting the phone frequently, and choosing a factory reset option otherwise you might see your phone at Google or X logo for forever.

I love this phone

If it were not for the fact that it was dropped from a hight of less than 2 feet a few weeks after I got it I would never give it up. It spidered thecorner of my screen and is slowly spreading to the rest of my phone.

I got it when the next in line hit the market. (dealer tried to talk me into the next in line but I wanted this one) Other than the screen is cracked it works great. I freezes up if I take too many pictures with it too fast so I have tried to slow down. I don't always succeed at that and have to remove the battery to get it to reset. Hasn't froze in a long time though, almost forgot it did that. Other than those two issues I LOVE this phone! If it were not for the screen starting to lose pieces of glass I would not even consider getting a new phone. My last one I had for over 4 yrs and it finally just stopped working so I got this one. My son got the same one the same day and he has never had a problem with his and he's dropped his from higher up onto harder surfaces without a chip. Time for a new phone and I am seriously looking at another Samsung.

Keeps freezing even after multiple factory resets!

Very slow phone which cannot run built-in apps like messenger or browser or even calling. It freezes multiple times a day and takes literally minutesto open an app like camera.

Very glitchy and slow
