Amazon New Fire Phone Full Review: Illuminate Your Life

The long awaited and much anticipated Amazon smart phone is finally here.  All roads led to Seattle today for the unveiling of the new Kindle Fire Phone. On this very important date, 18th June 2014, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos launched the new smart phone, called the Kindle Fire Phone. This Fire Phone review is designed to whet your appetite and get you caught up on the details.

Amazon Fire Phone Review

What is known about the phone so far?

The Amazon Fire Phone is the official name. This product is the first of hopefully many smartphones to come from Amazon. This new device is bien unique, with specs that place it far above other smart phones available on the market today.

The phone looks like a slightly bigger iPhone. It has an array of cameras–six, to be exact.  This includes the 13 Mega Pixel rear camera, the front view camera and four infrared cameras.

Key features and specs:

  • 4.7 inch display.
  • Quad-core processor- The availability of four processors makes for a lightening fast operating speed.
  • 720p display for crystal clear screen display.
  • 2GB RAM.
  • 13 Mega Pixel rear camera for high resolution pictures.
  • Customized Android OS.
  • 12 megapixel front view camera for clear chatting and pictures.

More about the Extra Ordinary 3D Interface and Tilting Effects

The Fire Phone is manufactured with a heavy skin. This facilitates the proper functioning of the 3D interface. It offers a new navigation experience that overpowers the old swipe norm,  allowing users to access the settings not by swiping or tapping the icon but by tilting the phone left and right. Delivering an MMS requires you to tilt the phone towards the screen to gain access to your gallery images, then attaching your image and sending the content.

This 3D effect has a name.  Rather than just calling it “3D”, CEO Jeff Bezos refers to it as “Dynamic Perspective“.  I know, it sounds like an 80’s hair band, but it’s way cooler than that.  Dynamic Perspective (DP) makes objects appear to shift as you move your head, as if you were seeing them at different depths in your phone.  Unlike the 3D that we are used to in the movies, objects do not appear to jump out at you, and you do not need any special glasses for the effect to work.
