Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

Given the always-on, always-connected nature of the smartphone market, being green isn’t always front-of-mind. But, Samsung changed all that this June with the launch of its "environmentally conscious" Galaxy Exhilarate.

Apart from boasting a rear casing made from 80-percent recycled materials, the Galaxy Exhilarate comes with an energy-efficient charger that alerts users when the device is fully charged, so it doesn’t have to be plugged in any longer than necessary. AT&T, the exclusive carrier of Exhilarate, rounded out the green theme by offering two custom cases for the phone, made out of biodegradable and recyclable materials.

Samsung's eco-friendly design didn’t at all compromise performance, either; the Exhilarate still packs a 1.2 GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera, and it runs on the latest 4G LTE network. What’s more, it won't run you quite as much as other Samsung phones, since it sells for just $50 with a two-year contract.
