Well, well, well, look who finally announced a phone. The long-rumored Amazon phone has finally been unveiled. As with all new Android devices (yes, the Fire Phone is still based on Android) we like to compare them with the best on the market and equal counterparts. The Fire Phone is not the most spec’d out device you will ever see, which is why we’re comparing it to the mid-range Moto X and the flagship Samsung Galaxy S5.
As you can see, the phone holds its own against both devices, but it’s clear that the Fire Phone is not about specs. While you and I may look at this chart as an indication of whether or not to buy it, Amazon’s demographic doesn’t care about screen size or processor power. The Fire Phone was built from the ground up to make it easy for consumer to buy stuff and use their services.
What do you think about these specs and the Fire Phone? Do you care about a device that doesn’t try to win the spec war? Are you invested in Amazon services enough to want this phone?
