EDITOR'S SUMMARY With its eco-friendly design and spiffy solar panels, the Samsung Blue Earth is more than just a gimmick; it's also an appealing cell phone with character.

GOOD The Samsung Blue Earth has a stylish design and a functional midrange feature set. Green fans will appreciate the solar panels that charge the phone.

BAD The Samsung Blue Earth's small display feels rather crowded. It lacks a full keyboard and call quality isn't top-notch.
