In a market of ever-increasing screen sizes, Philips continues to maintain its standing as an environmentally friendly brand. The Philips 50PFL5008 carries on this ethos, outperforming the competition with reduced energy consumption and efficient use of environmentally relevant materials in its printed circuit boards. The Philips brand extends its winning streak by earning the EISA Green Award again this year.
With its GALAXY S4, Samsung has shown that it’s possible to produce a large-screen smartphone with minimal environmental burden. The S4 outperforms the competition through its limited use of precious metals and toxic materials. Samsung’s flagship has particularly low power consumption, which is not only positive for the environment but is also convenient for the user. EISA’s Green Jury is pleased to see that the S4 has a removable battery - going against the recent trend of using embedded batteries.
