Review: Samsung Replenish
The Samsung Replenish is a low-end Android device. With its 2 megapixel camera, smaller, low-res display, and lack of any advanced features, it's decidedly an entry-level smartphone. What it makes up for in lack of features, though, is heart.
First, the Replenish feels good to use and works well. It offers reasonably good battery life, excellent voice quality and covers all the basics, such as messaging, with aplomb. The base Android 2.2 platform means the Replenish works with most available applications and services, and it has all the stock Android trimmings. It falls short in the camera and video camera departments, but browsing and customization capabilities offset that a bit.
Given its amazing level of middle-of-the-roadness, its stand-out feature is clearly its sustainability. For those with an eye on their carbon footprint and long-term impact on the earth, the Replenish offers peace of mind and proof positive - with its good hardware - that recycled products can be just as (ok, nearly as) good as brand new products.
