The Samsung Evergreen looks like kin to many of AT&T's quick messaging phone, but this one has an Earth-friendly edge. It's built with 70 percent post-consumer recycled materials, and the reduced packaging is also recycled and printed with soy ink.
Spacious but not wide
We like a roomy keyboard on our phones, and the Evergreen provides one that's spacious without being uncomfortably wide. The keys are nice and responsive.
We also like the natural placement of the tall soft keys while in landscape mode.
The Evergreen's black body is on the plasticky side, which gives it a less-than-premium feel.
The Evergreen has an interesting convenience key on the other side of the camera shutter button. Press it to cycle through and launch a selection of apps.
