vnkee, 03 Nov 2014Hi ..once mail me firstname.lastname@example.orgI want to buy amazon fire phone that is now available for $199. O I've in Mumbai, India. So can any one help me by advising how to buy it.
Amazon is now selling an unlocked version in the US for Black Friday. Look for the ad on Amazon.com.
Classic Amazon low specs high price good quality but nothing special. I would buy that for £150
Amazon should be selling this phone unlocked for 149.99 to 179.99 so they can move them off the shelves.
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 !
