5 February 2010
Excerpt: Samsung's S7550 Blue Earth is one of the first cell phones from a major manufacturer to feature a solar panel for recharging. Todd takes this beautiful and eco-friendly device out for a day in the sun to see how it performs in this review.
Excerpt: An eco-friendly phone? Now, isn’t that a bit too much? No, according to Samsung who say they have made the phone out of recycled materials, especially plastic water bottles (and hence the name Blue Earth) The first thing to write about this phone would be the solar panels. The solar panels charge the phone constantly. Apart from the sun, the phone can also charge it self under a strong source of light like a desk lamp.
Excerpt: We have all heard about Green Earth, but what the hell is Blue Earth? And what has it got to do with a phone? The solar panels charge to charge the phone, Eco friendly theme.

Samsung S7550 Blue Earth review: Calling Captain Planet
16 September 2009
Conclusion: So, will the Samsung S7550 Blue Earth usher in a new age in the design of mobile phones? Well, fully solar-powered phones are still years away but both chips and solar panels are getting more efficient by the day. The plastic used on the phone is top notch, and we know many people would love to hear it's been recycled (most of it anyway). Strangely, it's hard not to like even the box of this phone.
Pros: Solar panel for battery charging, GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 3.6Mbps, Commendable build quality, 3" capacitive TFT touchscreen, WQVGA resolution (240 x 400 pixels), 180MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB), Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS support, 3.15 megapixel fixed focus camera with smile detection and QVGA @ 30fps video recording, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, USB v.2.0, Document viewer, Exchange ActiveSync support, Smart unl...
Cons: Could've been slightly thinner, The screen is poorly visible in the sun, 3 MP fixed focus camera is outdated, Grip and handling compromised by the solar panel, No USB cable in the retail package
Conclusion: Music has become a vital part of the mobile telephony these days. Thus, Samsung S7550 Blue Earth supports MP3, WMA and eAAC+ player. Compared to MP3 and WMA files, eAAC+ is more beneficial for those users who have limited memory space. eAAC+ is a condensed form of music file and hence it takes a small space in the memory of the phone. The phone also enables FM listening option as it comes with standard FM radio with RDS.
