Amazon’s Fire Phone was officially announced today, and it’s clear that Amazon is going to go after all other phone makers with its device, particularly with its pricing starting at $199 with a new two-year contract. How does it stack up against other phones in that range? We wanted to help you see for yourself.
Check out the spec sheets below to see how the screen on the Fire Phone compares to that on the LG G3. And also to figure out how the cameras stack up, what kind of processors both phones have and more. Hopefully you’ll get a better understanding of how the two devices compare from a hardware angle. When it comes to software, well, of course that’s going to come down to an end user’s preferences and what he or she really wants out of a device.
How do you think the Fire Phone stacks up against the G3? Let us know.
