Amazon Fire Phone is a high-end Android device released back in 2014, which features a 4.7" touch-screen, an extremely powerful Quad-Core processing unit clocking at 2.2 GHz, and two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2.1 MP front camera.

Amazon appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 5.64 oz phone. This device is offerred in multiple colors: black, purple, yellow, blue and red. This device is thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.35". This cellphone is a very compact cellphone, considering it presents a 4.7 inches screen and it's only 5.5" long and 2.6" wide.

Amazon decided to equip this cellphone with a very powerful 2200 MHz Quad-Core CPU, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8974 system chip with a big 2 GB RAM. Graphic calculations generally eats lots of CPU time, so the Amazon Fire Phone counts with an Adreno 330 graphic processing unit running at 450 megahertz to unload the processor. This cellphone comes with a 64 GB awesome internal storage and even though it doesn't include a slot for an SD memory card, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without thinking about filling the phone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 megapixels back side camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front facing camera. It is also able to film 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. This camera also includes a few useful features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, HDR mode and optical image stabilization.

Amazon equipped this cellphone with a spectacular 4.7 inches screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, providing this phone with a unique graphical experience. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Amazon Fire Phone counts with a big 2400 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it if you use it heavily. This device has a reported talk time of 22 hs and a stand by time of 285 hours. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to live shorter, whereas with such a big battery you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes an issue.

This device includes wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed connectivity or the fastest 3G connection type, using HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Amazon Fire Phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

The Amazon Fire Phone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is really cheap considering it's a fabulous phone and it just costs $ 165. No matter if you will use it majorly for internet broswing and social networks, will use it for work, are looking for a gaming phone or love photography, this cellphone is definitely a great choice for you. Amazon also sells this phone with Premium headphones with remote and mic, Micro USB to USB charging cable, USB power adapter (5W) and Quick Start Guide.
