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.

A real pocket-tablet alternative

Already have a phone (a "flip" model, can you imagine), and didn't want a big tablet, but rather something that does it all and fits in my pockets, without being a smartphone.

Basically, a pocket-tablet. And this fills the bill brilliantly. Powerful enough for most games, expandable memory slot, camera for on-the-go moment captures, and all the apps for Android. An excellent deal in my opinion. Doesn't leave my side, so I can always have an eye on emails and messages. And it's a very good multimedia player too !

My first MP3 was a Samsung which was bought in 2006. Love it. Only upgrading because the battery is not holding the charge as long as it used to andit is only a 2G but it still works well.

Boy did I hit the jackpot with this new one. I just love everything about it. Very easy to use. Everyone that I know has a fruit product and do nothing but complain about them. They are very surprised by my Samsung and all of its features. I have been using Samsung phones for years as well and would not change them for anything else. Love yr products so much that I just bought my daughter a Samsung Laptop today.

I've had mp3 players and "granny smith" devices...then I got this Galaxy player. I'm so impressed with this little gadget! So much more than an mp3 player! I use it for Skype all the time so even though it's only wifi capable, if someone needs to make calls.

..Skype is always available on this. And with the front facing camera, Skype video chatting is easier than my laptop! It's got bluetooth so linking it to my laptop to transfer music, pics or files is totally simple and easy...no usb cable required. Apps download so easy from the google play store. My sons wanted Angry Birds, of course, and they play it all the time and the battery seems to hold up pretty well, gets a little warm but that's after more than an hour of play. With the document options in the Think Free Office and MyFiles it's like a mini computer! I put google cloud on mine, installed a cloud print app from the google play store (for free) and now i can link the player to a computer with a wireless printer and print whatever i need printed from where ever i am through google chrome cloud! Very easy to bookmark websites and put a widget on the homescreen. It comes with things like facebook, gmail and youtube already pre-installed. It's just overall a great investment for anyone! Honestly, after having this for only 3 months, I'd be lost without it now! I got mine then bought one for my husband...who is not electronically inclined and even he loves it. I think he uses his more than I use mine! If I had to complain about something it'd be that I can't find a wristlet on the market available for this yet. There are covers and pouches but I'm looking for something similar to a wallet with a wrist strap. And although I've accidentally dropped it a few times already, so far it's held up to my dropsies. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this to anyone! And compared to the price of some tablets and other fruits on the market, this is definitely quite a bargain for what all comes packed into this little wonder.

The best "portable" Android device on the market (beside a full Android phone)

This is a fantastic quality product. There is so much features that it will take a 100 pages book to describe.all of them considering the Android market apps.

A full fledged Android computer, two cameras, FM tuner, 4 inches beautiful screen, two speakers, wi-fi, microSd slot, multiple multimedia support formats The list goes on and on. It beat an Ipod hands down and the price make it a fantastic value. Just wish for a longer battery life but considering the amount of time you are going to play with this device, time fly so it is a minor gripe.
