Its a norm for Apple or Android to surprise us with their gadgets but it seems Amazon is here to shine all bright with its first smart phone-Amazon’s Fire Phone! The handset is all set to be launched on 25th July 2014. Jeff Bezos, Chairman and C.E.O of Amazon, thinks the Fire Phone has it all to compare it with iPhone5 or Samsung Galaxy S5. Lets see if his expectations are justified or they just bite the dust.
The usual features include 4.7-inch, 720p display, aluminum buttons, a Qualcomm processor, Adreno 330 graphics, and 2GB of RAM. It’s 0.35 inches thick, and weighs 5.64 ounces. But apart from these, Fire Phone does have features worth noticing. According to Bezo the speakers of phone are better than all the other smartphones that we have been using and the headphones that won’t tangle, of which we have doubts. Like seriously, is it even possible?
The camera is 13 mega-pixeled and a f/2.0 lens. With optical image stabilization you can take the most clear and sharp images! No matter how your surroundings are, be it bright sunny day or starless summer night, your images will be clearer and sharper, or as Jeff says ” better than Samsung Galaxy S5’s or iPhone 5’s! And you don’t have to delete any of your precious photos when you can actually keep them stored in your unlimited cloud storage.
Dynamic Prespective: A good camera, storage, bigger screen are features that we dont get much attracted to as now most of the phones have them. But then what set Fire Phone apart from the rest? Well, its dynamic prespective for one thing. The phone has 4 front facing cameras, that combinedly give you the 3D effect on your phone! With each tilt of your head you get to see the other side of the screen, so it depends on how and from which angle you are looking at your phone screen. Checking out maps and webpages will be fun, with each tilt, you see the places from different prespective! This feature allows you to scroll up and down the webpages or flip the e-book oage that you are reading!
