Amazon Fire Phone Philippine Price, Availability or Release Date and Specs
So what do we think about the first Amazon smartphone called FIRE PHONE? First, it's an LTE device so definitely really into going into a competition with the likes of S5, SONY XPERIA Z2, HTC ONE M8 and LG G3, and oh year iPhone 6.
It sports an IPS LCD with a 4.7 inch screen or 312 pixel dense screen.
The front and back are corning gorilla glass and the sides is a rubberized plastic as opposed to being metal. But the buttons on the sides and front are made of aluminum.
Now, the great thing about this phone aside from its gimmicky 3D Dynamic Perspective feature which will be a big sell for gamers and movie enthusiasts, is the fact that it is available in 32 GB the smallest and 64 GB variants.
That's one upping the other leaders in the pack that offers at least only 16GB of internal storage.
This phone however comes with 2GB of RAM. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, a CPU of a Quadcore 2.2 GHz Krait 400 and a GPU using Adreno 330.
But that loadshit of power and screen and features will need beastly power right?
Sadly, the bad thing about this phone is that it only has 2400 mAh, that looks a lot on paper, but practically with all that pixels and 3D effects, that is a drainer.
Another bad thing about the Amazon FIRE phone is that it did not adapt the newer microUSB v3.0, considering that it is expected to be media consumption device so you need faster wire transfer there.
Camera wise, it has 13 megapixels primary and 2.1 MP front camera.
That angular design is boring and not ground breaking and does not spark interest. Sure, that glass back is attempting to make it look premium, but the industrial design of the FIRE PHONE is leaning towards the rugged market.
Inside, it is the FIRE OS which is basically ANDROID, so expect bloatwares and that 32gb model? wow, you will likely end up 16gb, youll be lucky if you get at least 20 gb.
Should you buy this phone? NO, even if you have a PRIME membership on AMAZON. Wait, till they release a second version of this shit.
