Samsung Reclaim SPH-M560

CNET
3 May 2010
  • Summary: The Samsung Reclaim is more than just a green gimmick. Its performance could be improved, but we welcome the messaging keyboard and functional feature set.
  • Pros: The Samsung Reclaim offers easy-to-use controls, midrange multimedia features, and an eco-friendly image.
  • Cons: The Samsung Reclaim's call quality wasn't completely top-notch and 3G speeds were a bit pokey.

Samsung Reclaim Review

Digitaltrends
3 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Green, or eco-friendly, cellular phones have been around for at least a year, but most of them use 2004-era technology. The Samsung Reclaim is a true smartphone for the green arena though, essentially acting as a low-grade Propel Pro – and, considering its eco-friendliness, doing a surprisingly decent job. Read on to find out more about its nature-friendly features.
  • Pros: Environmentally friendly; good 2.0 MP camera; a solid all-around performer
  • Cons: Limited multimedia interface; tiny keys; doesn't excel in any particular areas

Samsung Reclaim M560 Review

Phone Arena
13 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Samsung has a very good device on their hands with the Reclaim.  The green angle is in earnest, and the product is solid.  With a quirky design and keypad a bit on the small side it’s definitely not for everyone, but it offers a quality user experience for those who don’t need a smartphone.  Top it all off with excellent phone performance and we think the Reclaim will be a hit.
  • Pros: One of the best performing phones that we’ve used, Good build quality, Respectable feature set, Up to 32GB expansion available, A truly environmentally friendly device
  • Cons: The keypad may be a bit small for some and could use some relief, Vibrant colors match the theme, but may detract some users

  • Conclusion: If you feel guilty about not driving a Prius, here is your chance to take a small step in turning your life greener. For every Samsung Reclaim sold, $2 of proceeds will go to Nature Conservancy’s Adopt an Acre program. The Samsung Reclaim is a strong competitor among the sea of QWERTY phones and offers good multimedia, GPS and navigation as well as a decent web experience.
  • Pros: Environmentally friendly. Very good Sprint TV performance.
  • Cons: Poor call voice quality.

Samsung Reclaim M560

cellphones.ca
12 November 2009
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Reclaim is a full-QWERTY slider that offers a nod to the environment with its bio-plastic shell and efficient charging system. And, of course, it’s green. A nice shade of green. The 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 pixel resolution display offers crisp images and accurate colors. The phone book has a 600 entry capacity but, interestingly, syncs with MS Exchange, a feature that will be welcomed by many.

Samsung Reclaim review

Pocket Lint
28 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Reclaim for us is a step in the right direction, but when push comes to shove, it's unlikely to bend you away from the handset you've got currently. Yes it does offer a cheaper solution, and yes you could run your life from it thanks to the email functionality and easy-to-use interface, however it's no BlackBerry Curve. The Curve might not be as "eco friendly" it will give you greater usability and options.
  • Pros: Eco credentials, easy to use, basic and simple
  • Cons: QWERTY keyboard hard to use, no Wi-Fi
