According to a study by research institute based Telefonica O2 in the UK, most environmentally friendly mobile phone is made by Sony Ericsson and Nokia. The results of this research was released last September.

Scores were assigned based on data supplied by each mobile phone maker. Starting from the data of materials used, the estimated lifespan of the device, energy efficiency, and ease of mobile phones for recycling.
Each phone will get points if you have additional features such as cameras or music players, so users no longer need to buy a separate electronic device. In addition, the points are also awarded based on the ethical performance of the company's mobile phone makers, environmental principles, as well as labor standards in their supply network.
"Consumers are now more aware of social and environmental effects of the technology they buy, and we believe in transparency of a product like this will help them make pililan more 'green'," said Ronan Dunne, O2's chief executive told the Telegraph
