Amazon Fire Phone specs


I would agree with this. It's also the cheaper of the Qualcom Snapdragon 800 I would imagine like in the Nexus 5 (though clocked slower) rather than the 801 or especially 805. This is designed to be inexpensive.

You mean when I posted my comment over an hour ago and none of those specs were released or included in this article? Nope.

Better than my RAZR M, but evey phone is better than it, specs wise this year.

lol they're going for the "ermagerd phones are getting too big" crowd. Good luck. Note 4 or G Flex 2 for me!

So what happens when you move up to a larger size? Does it shrink immediately or does it take some time?

So... it's *impossible* that someone might just enjoy the extra screen real estate because it means that they can get stuff done on their portable computer? Someone sounds defensive.

So did they explain the cameras on the front? I get the 3D effect, but I haven't seen anything on this site explaining it, unless I missed it.

They're for face-tracking to facilitate the 3D display. It needs four of them to ensure that it can track your phone no matter how you're holding the device.

If you're in the Amazon Eco System it's a no-brainer.. buy it
Specs are more than solid for the average user.. the 800 chipset is plenty powerful enough for the 4.7" display 720 or 1080P. It's got the Ram, the Camera and the looks.. it's not a geek phone. The specs more than fit the target market.
On a Geek Note:
How about the HTC E8? 50,000 units in 15 minutes.. Keep the same $449.00 price tag and it would be a huge hit in the U.S.A. for HTC.

With 32 GB internal storage and current SoC battery management, an unnecessary compromise for a vast majority of users.

Thank goodness it isn't another slablet. 4.7-5.3 seems optimal.
Excellent new market entry with useful technological advances.
Bezos is no dummy.

no 2K screen? no, thank you.

no Play Store access? no, thank you.

no Android OS,... wait... why is AndroidCentral even covering it, if it's not "real" Android OS? :)

Play store access I get but 2k screen cmon why would u want that

Anybody else concerned about the effect that having those four cameras (and lasers???) running all the time is going to have on battery life?

While this looks like a potentially neat phone (hands-on, battery life, etc., all need to be evaluated), I'm passing on it for three reasons:

1. Not a true "Android" phone. Sure, it can run Android apps, but the Fire line of products are about the Amazon experience and Ecosystem and while I'm a Prime subscriber and love using their retail services, I'm not that big on the Fire experience from a mobile/tablet perspective.

2. Specs. While specs do not make a phone, this phone seems to have middle of the road hardware in terms of CPU, RAM, Graphics, etc. It does have a decent camera and will probably be decent there, but overall, the 4.7", likely 720p screen and mid-range specs (from last year) aren't that impressive... which leads me to:

3. Cost! I'm done with paying for a phone on contract, so seeing a $199-299 pricing model on contract means one thing... huge off contract pricing. And, that it is. Off-contract, it's a $650 phone at the cheapest end. That puts the phone in the GS5 price range (give or take, depending on network). For a phone that doesn't have the specs of a GS5 (more like the specs of a Nexus 5 and that's even pushing it) yet having the same cost, it had better be big on value-adds. I didn't see a lot that would make me spend double for the phone.

I was hoping that Amazon would be aggressive in the pricing to better compete against people like Motorola, who is putting out very decent cheaper phones. Sadly, this phone is on the more expensive side and, I fear, would probably not sell as much as it would need to start driving costs down.

Looks like the phone has all the radios for both AT&T and T-Mobile. Maybe for the other Carriers as well. Too much to buy off contract to have that dumb OS. Maybe there is a way to root that SOB and flash CyanogenMod, now were talking. Just can not get into that OS, what ever it is called, just dumb IMO.

Eh, it'd be a huge waste to buy it and put CM on it, even if it's possible. You'd miss out on the 3D, FireFly, probably all of the tilt features, and everything that makes the phone at all unique. You can argue about whether or not those features make it worth the high asking price, but without them, it'd be nothing but a colossal waste of money.

S800 720p for $649 unlocked? Amazon is officially out of their mind. I expected it to match specs and price with Nexus 5 at least and they pump out a 720 p forked android phone and try to sale it at flagship price?

Why does everyone get so dam caught up on specs im not considering this phone in the slightest but think of it in terms of the OS and how they optimized it not the fact that it doesn't have the ABSOLUTE greatest and latest

Another no thank you. I thought that I'd be OK with my Fire HD I bought a year ago, especially being a Prime member. Well, didn't work out that way. Dead end as far as updates, don't even recognize it as an android device and no play store. Bought a Tab PRO 10.1 a few weeks ago and am very happy with it. FireOS was way too closed.
