Does the solar panel work even when the screen is in use or only when it's turned off?

Good question. I'd say so but I don't know for sure. I've looked over the PC Mag site for that info to no avail but it gives the samsung link if you want to check there yourself.

I see. I've looked at that link and the eco-credentials are strong. That said, I hope it lasts long, you can bring it to be recycled when its finished, the emissions created by distribution are off-set and it's energy efficient compared to other mobiles. Here's the details from that site;

Solar Panel on the back of the phone

* Eco- friendly phone made from recycled plastic extracted from water bottles

* Free from harmful substances such as Brominated Flame Retardant, Beryllium and Phthalate

* Eco-UI: Eco-mode / Eco-calendar / Eco-walk

* 5 star energy efficient charger which uses standby power lower than 0.03W

* Small and light package made from recycled paper

€40 solar phone

The chinese are going to crash the world economy with this kind of stuff - we aren't prepared for such cheap items that lead the way towards energy independence hopefully.

Quite a few ecogeeks were excited when Samsung revealed its solar-powered cell phone, the Samsung Blue Earth. However, many bemoaned the fact that the green technology was only coming packaged in a pricey smart phone. Well, for budget-minded environmentalists a solar-charged cell phone may be in store for you as well!

Chinese handset maker ZTE has unveiled the Coral-200, an economy handset featuring high-tech Dutch solar cells that provide 15 minutes of talk time for every hour of sunlight. The detail that makes this solar-powered phone really stand out is the wallet-friendly price of $40 USD.

The new solar phone may help to bring cell phone technology to areas off the power grid, like parts of Africa. ......
