Amazon Fire phone review: a unique device, but you're better off waiting for the sequel

 

After producing a long line of e-book readers and tablets (not to mention a set-top box), Amazon has its sights set on the smartphone market. But finding

Mayday provides quick access to tech support ; Comes with free year of Prime membership ; Good call quality

Exclusive to AT&T, no global options ; 3D effects can cause motion sickness ; Limited ecosystem ; Dynamic Perspective and Firefly need some work ; Unique features hamper battery life and performance

Amazon's debut phone isn't bad, per se, but there's little incentive for anyone to switch carriers or platforms to buy it. Its unique features don't provide enough utility, and come at the expense of both battery life and performance.

Your kids can break this tablet as many times as they want (for a while)

 

The $100 Amazon Fire Kids Edition tablet comes with a two-year guarantee.

Amazon Fire review

 

Amazon says the Fire is its best-selling tablet of all time . It's certainly the best tablet in its price range.

The Amazon Fire tablet definitely isn't overpriced. It runs a user-friendly operating system and houses a microSD card slot expandable up to 128GB. Amazon Prime members can access the bevy of free TV shows, movies and games included in the subscription.

The design feels cheap. Performance is slow if many apps are open in the background and when downloading. The display has a low resolution and touchscreen response can be sluggish. Gaming performance for large games is slow and the graphics can...

The Amazon Fire is a fine tablet for casual use, but it's not a good tablet, it's just good for the price.

Amazon Fire Phone review

 

Two days after I first turned on the Amazon Fire Phone, I walked into the foyer of my apartment building and saw a package with my name on it. This was odd: I'm the guy who orders something and...

Takes good pictures ; Mostly solid battery life ; Lots of genuinely cool ideas about smartphones

Confusing, complex interface ; Bland, boring design ; Often ugly software ; Smartphones shouldn't just be stores

Amazon makes great stores – it doesn't yet make great smartphones

Review: Amazon Fire Phone

 

With the Fire Phone, everything around you exists to be bought on Amazon. The phone deconstructs and decentralizes the entire concept of a store. It's...

If you want the fastest way to buy things on Amazon, this is your dream device. Comes with a free year of Amazon Prime. Firefly’s performance is impressive. Very good camera with wide aperture and optical stabilization. Unlimited online storage for...

Specs lag behind similarly priced phones. Uninspired physical design. Speakers get loud, but the sound is harsh. No Google Play Store. Old Bluetooth spec means you can’t use it with most fitness trackers

Amazon Fire Phone (AT&T)

 

The Fire Phone is a well-built handset with some unique features, but Amazon's "sell, sell, sell" strategy is more grating on a phone than on a media tablet.

3D effects are fun and occasionally useful. Mayday is the industry's best tech support. Perfect integration with all of Amazon's media services. $199 gets you 32GB of integrated storage and a free year of Amazon Prime

Very focused on selling you things from Amazon. Fewer apps than standard Android phones. Hardware and benchmark results aren't quite top-tier. Poor e-mail support

Amazon is at its best when it's either less expensive or simpler than its competitors. Its core Prime delivery service succeeds on both measures: It undercuts many other retailers and makes it effortlessly easy to compare, buy, and receive products...

Amazon Fire Phone Smartphone Review

 

Four eyes see 3D. Amazon's Fire Phone aims to offer innovative features for a small price, but the online retailer has not got a lot of praise so far. Our review shows why we are not convinced, either.

Very bright screen, Display with accurate colors, Fast in apps and games, Sturdy chassis, Support for many LTE bands, Fast WLAN, Innovative 3D interface, Usable runtimes, Great service "Mayday

Low-resolution display, App selection limited, Strong relationship with Amazon, User interface outdated and confused, Only one year warranty, Mediocre sound quality

The drastic price reduction had its reason: We could not really recommend the Amazon Fire Phone for 599 Euros (~$675) since there are much more sophisticated concepts for less money. However, the situation is different for just 149 Euros (~$168): You...

Amazon Fire Phone Review

 

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos denied it for years, but last month the company finally announced its Fire Phone to the world. As of July 24, U.S. folks can buy one starting from $199 with a two-year contract and $649 unlocked so long as they're okay with AT&T...
