Amazon Fire Phone is cut in price; including the free year of Prime, the handset is just $31
Rumors of an Amazon branded smartphone had been bandied about for some time. But when the Amazon Fire Phone was finally released in July 2014, it quickly became obvious that the device would be branded a failure. Even with new features like Firefly, which allows users to snap a photo of a box or UPC code and receive purchasing information from Amazon, and the Dynamic Perspective 3D images that use four front-facing sensors to achieve, the Fire Phone was DOA.
Poor battery life and the lack of Google Services didn't help. One positive is that buyers of the phone receive one free year of Amazon Prime, which is valued at $99. With Amazon cutting the price of the Fire Phone to $130, after taking into consideration the one free year of Prime, consumers are basically paying just $31 for the handset. If you're interested in purchasing the Fire Phone at the new, lower price, click on the sourcelink.
The Amazon Fire Phone features a 4.7-inch LCD screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 312ppi. Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 800 SoC, with a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of non-expandable storage. The 13MP rear camera has an aperture of f/2.0, and includes OIS. A 2.1MP front-facing camera will snap selfies and handle video chats. The 2400mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Fire OS is pre-installed.
If you are planning on signing up for Amazon Prime anyway, might as well dig a little deeper and shell out the additional $31 to pick up the Fire Phone. You never know when you might need a spare handset.
