On July 25th 2014, Amazon will be releasing their first smartphone called, the “Fire Phone”. Amazon’s entry into the smartphone world puts them in competition with products like Samsung’s Galaxy and Apple’s iPhone.

Fire Phone has 3D imaging, 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 1080p HD video, a 4.7 inch HD screen, Dolby digital audio, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Compared to Fire Phone’s competitors, it is a middle of the road phone. AT&T offers all 3 phones for $199. The camera is 13 megapixels, where the Samsung Galaxy S5 is 16 megapixels and Apple iPhone 5 is 8 megapixels. The width of the screen is 4.7 inches, while the Samsung Galaxy S5 is 5.59 inches and Apple iPhone 5 is 4.87 inches. Fire runs on a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, while the Samsung Galaxy S5 runs 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, and Apple Phone S5 runs on 1.3 dual-core processor. The Fire Phone has the same RAM as the Galaxy S5, 2 GB, and the iPhone 5 has only 1016MB.

Fire Phone will connect to Kindle, Amazon Prime, Fire TV, Amazon.com and other Amazon products and provide a unique experience exclusive to the Fire Phone.

What makes the Fire Phone special is a new app called “Firefly” which contains the ability to recognize audio, text, and images. Firefly takes the recognized content and displays the item on the Amazon.com for purchase as well as other related products. Firefly has the ability to identify up to over 100 million. Firefly will also be implemented into different apps to enhance the app experience.

Another interesting app on the Fire Phone is “Second Screen” which allows the phone to connect to the Fire TV, Playstation, or any Miracast enabled device and play media.

Some security concerns have risen from the features of the phone.

Fire Phone offers unlimited photo cloud storage, so photos are not saved on the phone but instead the cloud. The capability is great for people whose phone memory is normally taken up by photos. However, some are afraid of what else the cloud could be storing and what is only stored on the phone.

Another problem is the head-tracking system in the phone that is used for fingerless scrolling and accurate 3D imaging. The head-tracking system uses 4 cameras at each corner of the screen. People are worried about if the cameras record data or can be hacked to do so for unauthorized surveillance.

July’s release of the Fire Phone will be very interesting and we will see if Amazon is able to compete with Samsung and Apple in the smartphone business.
