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 Ever!

I had 3 of these, but still had so many issues with it. It boots me out when I'm trying to make a phone call, the battery life is terrible, it freezes many times so I have to keep removing the battery, waiting 20 seconds and then starting it up again, would drop calls, trying to use apps was quite slow, would not send my text messages through.

...overall a big disappointment. I have gone with a totally different phone now.

Pretty sweet phone

This phone is not too shabby. The swype feature is pretty handy, but I came to it late and it suggests a lot of typos (based on my struggles with thetiny keyboard).

The screen is gorgeous and the 5MP camera took incredible shots. I can't get a signal like anywhere though. I traveled from Ontario to BC and the only places I was able to call people from were Vancouver, Winnipeg and the GTA. Texting was better, but my phone randomly doesn't send pictures anymore. My wireless doesn't always work, but what are you gonna do. Lots of people have complained about poor battery life, but there's an app for that :P My battery now lasts up to three days, even if I'm texting or calling people (but watching lots of videos will kill it pretty fast). It's a little unweildy sometimes, during a call when your hands are full or taking a self-portrait, but if otherwise it has a nice heft without being heavy. This is my very first smartphone, but the whole process has been pretty intuitive. All said and done, pretty decent.

GREAT PHONE but needs update

Fantastic. tops other phones I've owned in the past in apps, functionality, and user friendliness. However, some of the software could be optimized to consume less battery power, but I hear we're supposed to be getting all of that in the next upgrade.

????DEMAND GINGERBREAD!!!

Great Smartphone

A well designed, good performance smartphone with quality display and features. Drawbacks include short battery life, no forward facing camera, andno camera flash.

Regardless, the pros outweigh the cons and it is a satifactory and fun handset.
