Samsung Blue Earth S7550

Already on the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona the first pattern of the Blue Earth was seen; It took still some time to the production of eco mobile phone with solar panel. Now is the Samsung Blue Earth S7550 finally to have and also meets his nickname Blue Earth:

The UMTS model wears a beautiful blue painting show. Also the housing acts as a cast: the rear solar panel integrates touch unobtrusive and even provides a pleasant touch quality, but also for one with 120 grams weight. The use of solar panels is to feel nothing in everyday life, by the way, it performs its service unobtrusively.

The processing is simply perfect as usual, at Samsung. The capacitive touchscreen in the 3-inch format offers a sharp and contrast representation and respond quickly to inputs. Alone the strong price of 399 euros ensures little enthusiasm.

Thanks to the Samsung own TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, works largely intuitive operation and offers many customization options, the standby display and main menu, which can extend both over three levels. Also, the icons are appropriately, so that the user already purposefully select the individual menu items after a short time.

Also, the most important functions such as telephony, news or even the music player are summarized in a quick menu which can be called up via a long KeyPress on the key button below the display. However, there is also a point of criticism: Samsung does not include the Blue Earth on an expandable QWERTY keyboard, which unnecessarily complicates the writing of messages – as with the mobile keyboard tapping a Wolf himself…

Proper equipment and good endurance

In terms of facilities, the Blue Earth on the amount of time is. It dominates the data Turbo HSDPA and EDGE as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. The latter can be used but unfortunately not to navigate, but only for the Geotagging feature of the 3.2 megapixel camera, that geographical maps so the location of the shots.

Other drawbacks: the browser could convince with its depiction, nor with pace in the test and should be better by a freely available copy about the Opera Mobile browser will be replaced. Also the data synchronization with Outlook is not possible out of the box: in addition to free download of the PC Suite, the purchase of a data cable for the micro-USB connector is required. There is a step counter, including the ecological thought of the Blue Earth in numbers: eco-walk calculates the amount of CO2 when it leaves the car and goes on foot – and represents this visually in the form of virtual growing trees.

In the laboratory, it was then technically to the nitty-gritty: the Accumulations went well – up to 21 days is the Samsung at reception; the remaining stamina values be good as the results for the acoustics. The transmission and reception properties are, however, only average.
