Amazon UK cuts price of Fire Phone by up to 75 percent for one day only

If for some reason you're still mulling over purchasing an Amazon Fire Phone, now is your chance to snag one on the cheap — so long as you live in the UK and use O2's network. Amazon is currently running a lightning deal for the device that drops the price down to £99 off-contract for the 32GB version, a savings of 75 percent. Additionally, you can pick up the 64GB version for a slightly more expensive £149, a 69 percent savings.

As a refresher, the Amazon Fire Phone pack a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 13MP rear camera and 2.1MP front shooter, a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM. And of course, all of this is running Amazon's Android fork, Fire OS.

The Fire Phone was pretty much a complete flop, but this could make a cheap backup device for anyone interested. If you're feeling crazy enough to pull the trigger, you can hit up that source link below to get in on this fire sale before it expires tomorrow.

  • Soon they'll pay US to take it
  • And on that day, I will get one. Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • I still wouldn't want one.
  • I'd take a free one if it came with CyanogenMod and a year of prime. Then again CM is trying to be another Amazon OS and exclude Google stuff, so maybe not :-/ Zenwatch rhymes with Winwatch. Coincidence? I think not.
  • The reason why CM doesn't have GApps is not because they want to, it's because they HAVE to. Some time in the past Google got mad at CM for including their proprietary apps. They settled the user had to install them. IIRC, This was during CM7, beforehand CM came with GApps. Posted via the Android Central App
  • it does come with a year of prime.
  • Um no. You do realize most ROMs don't come pre installed with GAAPS since its proprietary to begin with and CM and Google and a disagreement a long time ago about the apps coming preinstalled. They aren't becoming another Amazon? What are you bla blabbering about Posted via the Android Central App
  • He is referring to this I think:
  • Kind of seems like too little too late. I think pretty much everyone who had any interest in it already dismissed it and got something else, they should've flogged it for 99 quid from the start. Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • I'd buy it if it was unlocked, no hesitation. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Once you go Galaxy note 4 you dont consider anything less. Note 4 is BO$$
  • And 800 or so dollars. Posted via the Android Central App
  • ^^^Yes, there is that small detail of price. £650 here. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unless you're not compensating for a lack of something, otherwise you're perfectly happy with a Sony Z3 Compact.
  • Hahahaha, do you provide ice with the burns you give out? Posted
  • I skipped the Note 4 for a regular Z3 and I am happy did... If Z3c was on tmobile I would have got one.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Amazon didn't learn anything from Blackberry.
    Good specs, no ecosystem. Galaxy Note 4 Galaxy S III
    LG G2
    If it ain't Tech, it ain't Right.
  • 100% correct about the note 4...Sony WHAT? HAHAHAHAHAHA Posted via my Note 4
  • Sony what? Sony the only company to make a small flagship in 2014? Sony one of the few companies to get battery life right? Sony one of the companies with usable cameras? "I'm da Blur boys!" - Me with 1200 ping. Yes. My Internet got worse.
  • Also going out of business... Posted via the Android Central App
  • They just need some marketing help. Posted via the Android Central App
  • they're hardly going out of business. remember the headlines about HTC all of 8 months ago??
  • Note 4 screen is made of peanut brittle, this thing breaks if lay it down too hard, as soon as the M9 is out this thing is sold with a quickness. Plus it has locked boot loader. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Solid screen on mine plus an unlocked bootloader. Beast of a phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I didn't know there was anything below a Galaxy device.
  • The only way they'll get rid of these phones is to give them away for free. Posted via My Beastly Galaxy Note 4...(T-Mobile)
  • I actually might get one. I can't get anything with as decent specs for £99. Posted via my Z10 using Android Central App
  • Going from a Z10 to a firephone? Both sad choices Posted via Android Central App
  • Z10 was a great phone. With a bit of effort the Fire Phone can be not terrible. So there's that. "I'm da Blur boys!" - Me with 1200 ping. Yes. My Internet got worse.
  • As a back-up I mean. Posted via my Z10 using Android Central App
  • Waiting for the $99 deal with a year of prime in the U.S.
  • Buy that for the free year of prime, sell the phone on eBay. Make some extra pocket money. • Samsung Galaxy S5 on U.S. Cellular
  • yeah, after it sits on ebay for 6 months before someone finally bids on it for $1 because the have pity on you
  • Talk about beating a dead horse Posted via the Android Central App
  • Finally saw someone with this phone tonight. His name is Barry Allen, some might know him as The Flash. He took a selfie in tonights episode, very quickly flashing the phone w/ its logo in plain sight for a brief second! At least we know /someone/ that owns this product! Posted from my HTC One M8 via Android Central App
  • Lol, such a bad product placement. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I might consider it for $99 if it came with 1 yr of prime. It's always fun checking out new phones. It might be a fun phone to play with for a while, and then try to sell it. Only problem is I don't use at&t. Posted via Android Central App
  • Oh, they're still charging money for this? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Honestly if I had £99 spare then I would buy this as a back up phone or for my kid just as I'm curious to see what it has to offer. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I would consider one as a backup phone *only* if I could put CM on it. Otherwise, I wouldn't have one even if it was free.
  • Isn't it bad that even at £99 I wouldn't want to buy it lol. Posted via Sony xperia z2
