Earlier this week we reported just how much of a flop the Fire Phone was for Amazon. The phone has had abysmal ratings, with only 2.3 stars on Amazon's own product page. Beyond that, the real problem with the phone is that Amazon priced it far too high and basically shot themselves out of the market.

Although this was obvious to anyone on the outside, including consumers, for some reason it wasn't obvious to the executives at Amazon. Otherwise they would have priced it appropriately and it might have done a bit better. Regardless, Amazon has seen the error of their ways and admit that the Fire Phone pricing was wrong. Here's a quote where they recently admitted as much,

At least the company is willing to shift when necessary. They actually had changed the price down to $1 in September, which lead to a significant sales improvement. (Well... duh!)

What's interesting is that Amazon is still committed to the device and plans to offer sequels in the future. At least this time they plan to price the phone more aggressively to match the market. We will see if the next generation Fire...

Matias Duarte of Google fame is showing off the camera quality of his new Nexus 6 by taking a couple of low-light Halloween shots. Both pics feature several Jack-o-lanterns at night and are pretty impressive. While we have no doubt that there are several phone cameras that take better shots than the Nexus 6, what is truly impressive is how much better these pics are compared to previous generation Nexus devices.

It probably shouldn't come as a surprise considering Google and Motorola went all out on the camera hardware this time by including a Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS). Sound off and let us know what you think.

Also, don't forget to check out our dedicated section for the Nexus 6 right here: Motorola Nexus 6 Android Forums at DroidForums.net

Samsung just took the wraps off their Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3. Both are mid-range devices and are meant to target specific audiences. Samsung described them as “ultra-slim” And “optimized for social networking.” It turns out they are the slimmest smartphones that Samsung has created at 6.7mm and 6.9mm respectively.


Here's a breakdown of specs for these devices:

Galaxy A5 -
  • 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • microSD support

New DROID Turbo owners need to be aware of a feature that isn’t currently available on their device, but will be by the end of the year – simultaneous voice and data. We are not sure why the device isn’t capable of simultaneous voice and data out of the box, but Verizon has confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 which is VoLTE is required for it to work. Verizon has also confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 will arrive for the device by the end of the year.

Knowing this, will you still purchase The Droid Turbo from Verizon, wait until the update to purchase it, or choose another phone such as Nexus 6 or Galaxy Note 4?

In March of last year, Google’s Larry Page announced that Andy Rubin was stepping away from the Android team at Google to work on making super smart robots. The move was a bit of a surprise, since he co-founded the operating system that has now taken over the smartphone world. But hey, people need change some times, and that’s apparently what Andy was looking for.

Today he is officially leaving Google. According to the Wall Street Journal, Rubin is “starting an incubator for start-ups interested in building technology-hardware products.”

One of the best parts of Cyanogen Mod 11 is the all new Theme Chooser. This theme chooser allows you to apply your perfect custom look. You can mix and match parts from your favorite themes. One of my favorite new themes for the new Cm11 theme chooser is the "reNu Lust Red" theme by BIGDX. This theme is the complete package. You get a blacked out red SystemUI, new app icons, blacked out gapps and system apps, new wallpaper, new bootanimation and more! The video above is a full review of what you will get with this great theme!

Doodle is a super unique and fun theme chooser theme. This theme will only work with the theme engine found in Cyanogen Mod 11 and will not work with custom launchers. Doodle brings the design of a hand colored theme. It actually looks like elements were themed with a color crayons. Included in this theme are themed SystemUI, Settings, Icons, Keyboard, Fonts, Lockscreen, Wallpaper, Loading Spinners, Boot Animations, Ringtones/Alarms/Notifications, and more themed elements are soon to come. Head to the Play Link below to grab this theme for only .99.

According to some developers Verizon is getting ready to release an OTA update. Some users are actually posting screen shots of their devices giving the update notification. According to them it is uncertain as to whether or not this will patch the current BUMP bootloader and recovery install method. More than likely it will patch up this exploit. If you have not already unlocked your bootloader you will want to go ahead and do that. You can actually block this update.

Dial ##3328873, then enter 000000 for the service code, then uncheck the ota-dm mode to prevent any future OTA updates.
