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.

Everything is great except one thing...

Battery Life With moderate use, the battery can last the whole day. Only on those days that Im doing long hours of gaming that I need to charge it during the middle of the day.

That is of course if Im using Wi-Fi and no Mobile Data. It barely last half the day with heavy use if the Mobile Data is turned on. Durability Given that you can buy a Book Cover for this, you will not have problems with handling this. You can put this gadget down wherever you want without minding if it will get scratched. The cover will not hinder you from using the tablet unlike other casing/cover. The device itself is durable enough that it can sustain drops and will leave minimal marks. More so with the Book Cover although the Book Cover will not protect the entirety of the gadget since some parts of it are still exposed. Design Given that the Note 8.0 is created together with the Book Cover, adding the said accessory will not make the Note 8.0 less appealing. It actually looks better with the Book Cover. Accessory Functionality The Book Cover is simple to use. The magnetic strips can turn the screen on and off as desired. You will not be bothered that the screen will suddenly turn on after you tucked it inside your bag. Speed I never had any issues with the responsiveness of the Note 8.0. I can leave every app open for days and it wont hurt the processing speed. Though, most of the Note-specific apps are of little or no use to me. I can definitely say that most of it are just bloatware. UI Overlay For my taste, the stock android is far better looking than the TouchWiz. It is very subjective but I think when you want your devices to look similar seamlessly since the functionality of those are interconnected, you would want those gadgets to use the same theme. Given that the TouchWiz UI is prominently different from the stock android, you will feel the disconnect in using this gadget together with your other android devices. Google Play App Compatibility Most of the apps found in the Google Play Store are compatible with this device. I seldom had any problem with apps not running properly on this one. Android Updates Same with most of the Samsung android phones and tablets, do not expect that you will get android updates on this. That is the only major complaint that I have with this (and all the other Samsung products). If you are looking for an android phone/tablet that you want to use the newest functionality soon after its release such as screen mirroring on your Chromecast or using your Android Wear, do not get Samsung. Otherwise, Samsung gadgets are very reliable. Even if this particular model is old as of this writing, there are still a lot of people who would prefer this over the new tablet line up of Samsung mostly because of the design as the new line up looks more of a business-class design. Most of the reviews on Youtube, forums, etc are focused on the first impressions on the devices and the assessment of the device after long months of use are neglected. As said earlier, the only drawback of this device and most of the Samsung devices is the lengthy wait for it to get updated (if ever it will get the updates). Aside from that, I will recommend this product/gadget. Future Product Recommendation If Samsung will always give the users the option to use the stock android on their gadgets or the TouchWiz UI (at least during the start when the device is being set up), Samsung devices will surely be great.
