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.

This is simply awsome

This phone was my first smartphone and I was very pleased about it It is a very god phone, nice design, acceptable screen, high resolution, fine camera, everything is god on it considering its price.

But I'm very mad that Samsung didn't made updates to operating sistem. It stopped at 2.3.6 and now Android reached 4.4 (soon 4.5 or something like that). I'm using cyanogenmod on it to keep it up to date and it is working very well. I really recomend this phone for a noob in smartphones or in android :D (sorry if my english is bad, i'm not an english speaker and i'm still learning)

Not built to last

The phone works great for about a year but after that it slowly starts to die. First my battery went then the place to charge my phone went. I endedup having to buy 3 new batteries and another wall charger.

The phone stopped holding a charge at all a few months later. I now go through 4 batteries a day. It's now stopped taking pictures and the few it does take are not clear. It tells me daily my memory is full and my message memory is full but it isn't. The only thing I really love about it is the screen never cracks. I have dropped it multiple times and it never breaks!

Amazing for the price

The phone is a less expensive phone, so you can't expect it to be of the same quality as an S3 or S4. But it by far exceeded my expectations.
