  • Summary: A rather strange phone due to its unusual positioning, user interface and menu setup. Samsung and Sprint position it as a "green" solution, marketing their adherence to environmental cause, but as this is one of only two "green" phones Sprint sells (the second one is Samsung Reclaim that Restore is actually replacing, but at this point they are still sold side by side) and one of a few "green" phones made by Samsung out of 75,000 models company releases each year...

Samsung Restore

26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: With 84 percent recyclable material, the Samsung Restore is made with environment concerns in mind. The phone’s casing contains 27% post-consumer recycled plastics and the packaging is 100% recyclable with soy ink print. Beyond the eco-friendly features, the Samsung Restore offers a very nice video experience, good GPS performance and a full serving of messaging and social networking. It’s a great phone for the price with a contract.
  • Pros: Very nice keyboard, good video performance., Pro: Very nice keyboard, good video performance.
  • Cons: Still waiting for the Sprint Music Plus store to open., Con: Still waiting for the Sprint Music Plus store to open.

Expert Review

Phone Arena
18 June 2010
  • Excerpt: About a year ago Sprint became the first US carrier to introduce an eco-friendly phone, the Samsung Reclaim .  More than just a showpiece, the Reclaim was simply the first step in Sprint’s larger green initiative .  They have introduced many eco-friendly accessories, redesigned their packaging to reduce and even eliminate the use of plastics and spearheaded a nationwide phone recycling campaign.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Crisp display, Camera performed well
  • Cons: Call quality left a bit to be desired, Keyboard could have some more feel to it
