Samsung Replenish (photos)

The price is right for Samsung's first Android eco-phone, and so are most of the features.

Looks can deceive

The Samsung Replenish may not look like your typical eco-friendly phone, but it's made from recycled and recyclable materials and delivered in a box printed with soy ink rather than petroleum-based dyes. It also happens to be Sprint's first Android eco phone.

It means business

With a slab-style body and a QWERTY keyboard, the entry-level Replenish resembles phones aimed at business professionals.

Keyboard closeup

While we could type effectively, the cramped keyboard might feel tiny or uncomfortable in larger hands.

Smaller virtual keyboard

Icons and the virtual keyboard looks petite on the Replenish's 2.8-inch touch screen.

Black and silver

The Replenish is mostly black with silver accents. It's reasonably thin as well.

Camera

The Replenish has a 2-megapixel camera on the back. There's a MicroSD card slot hiding underneath the back cover--not our favored spot for it.

Photo quality

Pictures turned out better than we expected, with sharp edges and clear imagery. Although colors weren't always spot on, we were pleasantly surprised with the 2-megapixel images.
