The Amazon Fire Phone isn’t a very good phone. Its software is limited and the hardware really didn’t blow our minds. It’s not that bad of a phone for $60, though, which is the price you’ll basically pay for one right now.
Amazon is currently selling the 32GB unlocked Fire Phone for $159 and it still includes a full year of Amazon Prime in the price. That’s a $99 value right there and means you’re only really paying $60 for the Fire Phone. As quick reminder, it’s equipped with a 4.7-inch HD display, a 2.2GHz quad core processor, a 13-megapixel camera with OIS and 2GB of RAM. It runs on AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the U.S., but won’t work properly on Verizon or Sprint.
I’m tempted, I really am. I don’t know why I need a Fire Phone, and I know it doesn’t have access to Google Play Services, which means full support for Gmail and Google Maps is out, but $60 for a phone seems too good to pass up.
