Samsung Replenish review: Sprint's first Android eco phone

Sprint's first eco-friendly Android phone offers Earth-consciousness at a very reasonable price.

The Samsung Replenish may have the designation of being Sprint's first Android-powered eco-phone, but even if it managed to cinch closed a hole in the ozone layer, we still wouldn't recommend it if it didn't stand up to its rivals.

Recommend it we do, especially to budget-conscious consumers who are looking for a capable but low-frills smartphone. At only $50, it sports Android 2.2 Froyo, a QWERTY keyboard, and an above-average 2-megapixel camera. On top of that, it has a roomy 32GB external memory and mobile hot-spot support (an additional $30 per month.)

Pros aside, the Replenish certainly has some drawbacks that may cause those in search of a savvier smartphone to keep looking. Read all the pluses and minuses in this hands-on review.
