Amazon Fire Phone is on Sale

Amazon’s new Fire Phone is now on sale and is priced to compete with other smartphones. It has a plethora of capabilities, but it has yet to be seen if Apple or Android users will abandon their mobile devices for the Fire Phone.

At first glance, the Fire Phone looks a lot like an iPhone as far as its shape is concerned. It has curved corners and is relatively thin like the iPhone. However, hat is where the similarities end. The Fire Phone features glass on both sides, rubber corners and the Amazon logo on the back. Plus, it has a speaker on the bottom and the top of the device, which is not common with smartphones.

The phone’s most distinct feature is its four infrared cameras that are placed on its corners. It enables the phone to use Dynamic Perspective, a 3D-effect feature that detects where the user’s head is in relation to the phone. Third-party developers can use Dynamic Perspective in their apps, and it can translate well in video games. Over time, app builders will find more uses for the Dynamic Perspective.

Firefly is another app that sets the Fire Phone apart from the dense smartphone market. It uses the microphone and camera to detect text, products, TV shows and music. Once it is activated, you can pull up information on IMDB about a show you are watching. If you aim it at a product, Firefly will find that product on Amazon, making purchasing it or saving it in your cart a breeze.

The Fire Phone is available with no contract for $649 with 32GB of storage or $749 with 64GB of storage. AT&T offers a two-year contract with the 32GB version for $199 or the 64GB version for $299.
