The vast majority of today’s cell phones are hardly what one would consider green. They house hazardous chemicals, draw unnecessary amounts of power while charging and the packing they come in when you purchase them is not eco-friendly. It is definitely an industry that needs a few phones as examples of how green electronics should be done.
Samsung and Sprint have attempted to address this fallacy, unveiling not too long ago the Samsung Restore. This QWERTY messaging style phone, with its slider design, attempts to address some of the environmental issues plaguing mobile phones, while at the same time offering a nice feature set that will attract all manner of users.
Does the Restore deliver on its promises of being a better green phone? Is it cool and feature rich enough to give it street cred? Read on to find out.
