so 4/5 camera's constantly being active?
The battery is gonna be over too soon
it looks like a Chinese Iphone clone. On the other hand it could be the novelty everybody's waiting for, everybody who's had enough of the 'classics': Iphone or Android's big boys (Sammy, HTC, Sony and the rest of them.

All companies opt for android bcos its open source, so their earnings go up! but then, android is the worst os when it comes to secuirty and privacy! (bcos its owned by google).
apple die hard fan never change their brand because apple is apple, no comparison with apple

Apple filed an eye tracking patent that deals with something called Troxler fading.
Face tracking and head tracking is interesting for viewing, but I’m not sure about navigation.
If it was eye-tracking, you could move a cursor around with your eyes, and if your gaze reached the bottom of the window, it would automatically scroll down (eye-scrolling video demo at 0:22: youtube/2q9DarPET0o?t=22s).
That’s probably more natural for auto scrolling than having to keep tilting.
This could all become a nightmare if anyone starts experiencing the motion sickness experienced on iOS7 parallax feature.
In iOS case, it was a subtle feature, but for Amazon, the phone almost hinges on this interface. That could be problematic.
So now this phone will track whatever I do with 5 cameras constantly staring at my every movement and the things I search for and I have to pay so it can violate my privacy...
I dont think its a good option anymore...:/
Yar, phone looking ALA.... Design and Recognizing Things around you with help of Camera & Microphone is Some thing totally innovative .......
no google maps, no google talk, no gmail, no syncing with google services no google play store. This phone was almost great.

To dismiss it and call it money or status, does not account for the gain Apple is having.
This phone could succeed if they follow this idea, making full use of amazon existing services. People who rely on amazon would love it.
Phone plays on the weaknesses in the other phones
720p? Even Apple's ifoney 6 is going to have >720p (960p). The Firephone will end up like the Facebook Phone...FAIL.

Samsung sells different variations of Android. Android appeals to a much wider audience of differing socioeconomic status. Apple only targets people with money (or those who pretend to have money). Please state fact not conjecture.
cheebc, 19 Jun 2014lack of supporting apps? Its still an android phone, u can always side load android apps, only... moreTrue.
However why would you bother side loading.. and fear of incompatibility, when people can just get a normal android phone?
BB tried to be compatible with android.. in the end flopped.
They should either develop their own platforms, call for developers like how MS does it, then to hitch a ride with android.
really ? This article should be supposed for amazon firephone and there you go again apple fans right here ruining the moment, telling blah blah blah. O please iphone 6 is something BIG but dont forget about the G3 its a BIG one also. who cares about the sales of iphone?who cares about that?who?answer=FANBOYS
