Amazon Fire Phone Is Real But Is It Good Enough?
The long anticipated and allegedly rumored Amazon Fire phone has finally been officially announced at Amazon website and you may pre-order it right away but you need to first know if it is really worth your money or not.
First of all, the Amazon Fire phone does not run Android or iOS operating system and has its own OS called Fire OS 3.5.0 which you will get out of the box.

The new Amazon Fire phone uses Dynamic Perspective Sensor technology which gives more realistic viewing of objects such as 3D maps and graphics. In addition to this, users will also be able to scroll web pages and phone screens by simply tilting the device.
The Fire smartphone has a 2.1MP front facing camera and a 12MP rear facing camera, both can shoot 1080p HD videos at 30 fps. The battery on Fire phone is 2400 mAh which is good enough for up to 22 hours of talk time, up to 11 hours of video playback, up to 65 hours of audio playback and up to 285 hours of standby.
