Amazon's Fire Phone is Now Available for $199 Unlocked
After Amazon announced poor quarterly results, which consisted of a $170 million loss and that the company has $83 million of unsold devices in its warehouses, the company has decided to lower the cost of its flagship smartphone.
Amazon customer can now purchase an unlocked Fire Phone for $199 (down from $449). At a savings of $250, the company is still offering a year's free Prime subscription ($99 value) with the purchase of the smartphone.
The Amazon Fire Phone features a 2.2GHz processor, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 32GB of storage, and Amazon's Firefly feature which allows uses to take a picture of any product and view it on Amazon. The smartphone is aimed at customers who purchase from Amazon on a frequent basis. At the lower price of $199 it would be a little bit easier to recommend the Fire Phone, however, there are many other smartphones on the market that perform much better than Amazon's.
