Amazon, are you kidding me?!!
This has 2013 specs with a price of highend 2014 smartphone, you would take a valuable lesson from this phone!
No doubt the quality of the hardware is good (based on personal experience with a Fire Tablet) but I wouldn't buy because:
- No SD Card so you're stuck with whatever memory you bought it with (and no I don't consider cloud storage secure)
- fixed battery. Batteries do not last forever and can overheat/lose capacity.
- Only on O2 (in the UK). They are a poor network whose Spanish parent company is crippled by debt. O2 Eire and O2 home broadband have already been sold off because of this.
Their tariffs are laughable for data and if you want 4G EE cannot be beaten for coverage. I would have to unlock it (or buy SIM free).
- Ridiculous 'Amazon' version of Android preventing full range of Android apps from being available. Thanks but no thanks.
Everything except for infrared rx/tx can't understand that one. Amazon is asleep at the switch. In this case literally. No wonder their stock is crashing.
This is an amazing phone,I use to change my phone monthly because I get boring with the same phone,same interface,etc,but since I get this phone in my hands I realize the changes this phone bring to the market,I'm still exploring every aspects of this phone and man I can stop seeing new thinks,innovations,etc,I recommend this phone to everyone boring with the same system,same applications,etc,so don't hate it because is only in art or you can get any Google playlists,etc,just get your hands in one of this to experience the innovations of this phone I know there are some jerks that pay reviews sites to get good reviews with their phones,and they know who they are,but the only review that count is when you get your hands on this phone,period
m binay from India so would be informd that amazon is great Experience awsome OS and Books HD display Bettrey life evrything is amazing ,m Big fan amazon Device i have using their two device Amazon Kindle Fire & HD both buy from canada very happy with this!
I like this phone very much,but I am an amazon fan ,the one thing I would have wanted was for the phone to have been a little larger, I love the UI if you are into changing your launcher and adding widgets this is not the phone for you . This phone is great for making calls, and all forms of entertainment, great for keeping up with your emails, text messaging etc. The camera is good at 13 megapixel and very simple to operate. I have own a Nokia 1520 and a note 3 before this phone and I don't see myself leaving this phone anytime soon.
Yet another phone without an FM radio - not getting my money -you can't use an FM radio app without broadband or decent phone signal - only 2g in my area !
BD Summers, 08 Sep 2014So, another great phone without sdcard slot? I think that phone makers are trying to make us g... more32 GB isn't enough ,what will u download all games and all videos on YouTube or download all pictures from google
So, another great phone without sdcard slot? I think that phone makers are trying to make us go back to the good old laptop/pc. Not seeing my money.
i wud like to have it only because so few have it
i dont want some android crap taht every body have
Can't stand this phone. The UI is ugly and hard to navigate. You cant even change the wallpaper. Non removable battery. No 3D camera or video capture. The 4 extra cameras on the front are for just for the perspective 3D effect (which is just a gimmick with no practical use). The handset heats up with minimal usage. You can only download apps from Amazon store. No Android or iOS apps are compatible. At every conceivable moment, the handset tries to sell you something from amazon.com . Only buy if you have more money than sense and have a large enough house to store all the useless crap that amazon tries to sell you.
