Samsung's eco-friendly Reclaim review
The Samsung Reclaim is arguably one of the first better-than-basic phones built to minimize its environmental impact. Samsung boasts that the Reclaim is the first mobile phone in the US made using bio-plastic materials extracted from corn and that the material is 100 percent biodegradable, while 80 percent of the entire phone is recyclable; it even ships in recycled packaging printed on with soy-based inks. Whether that is enough to merit buying the phone over a same-price equivalent, however, is the real question for our review.
