The Fire Phone is officially up for grabs from the Amazon — the largest retailer online — store after a warm welcome introduction earlier last month on the 18th of June. If you want a new smartphone that comes with a big display, high pixel density couples with high-resolution, lots of RAM, a quad-core processor, NFC and fast 4G mobile data support this is the handset for you.
If you are willing to invest in a 2-year contract from the retailer it is up for grabs for as little as zero dollars from AT&T. AT&T mark the only phone carrier in the United States selling the Fire Phone. If a contract isn’t your thing people can buy the smartphone for under $650 outright.
Those looking for a more detailed description will be pleased to know that it comes with a 4.7-inch display, 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, 315 ppi pixel density, IPS LCD screen technology, plus the proximity sensor, light sensor and multi-touch touchscreen rounding out the rest of the display features.
The hardware is impressive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8974 system chip, Quad core, 2200 MHz, Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 graphics processor, 2048 MB RAM system memory and a whopping 64 GB of built-in storage space. Customer should keep in mind that the device lacks any type of storage expansion slots such as Micro-SD capabilities. However, the 64 Gb’s worth of internal memory will be enough to satisfy most people shopping around for a new phone.
Moreover, the camera comes with a 13 megapixel rear-facing-shooter and a 2.1 megapixel front-facing snapper. You also get LED flash, F2.0 aperture size, 1080p camcorder with video sharing.
