The Fire phone was a bit of a flop, but its really not that awful of a phone. It actually has some pretty nice internal specs. It is rocking a quad core processor clocked at 2.2Ghz, 2GB of ram, a 4.7" HD display, 32GB of memory, 13mp camera with optical image stabilization, and comes with lots of extras including unlimited cloud storage for photos, firefly, mayday, and dynamic perspective. While the phone is a decent phone on paper Amazon's UI takes quite a bit of getting used to. At $449 many people just overlooked this device.
Today the Fire phone has been reduced to $159, but the big news here is that the phone comes with a free year of Amazon Prime. The Amazon Prime one year membership would normally set you back $99, so this puts the phone at $60. This is a darn good phone for $60. If you are considering purchasing a one year subscription to Amazon Prime you should grab the Fire phone while you are at it.
I have to add this is perfect timing. Many of you will want to grab amazon prime so you have access to all the "Black Friday style" deep discounts that will be available on July 15th in celebration of Prime day!
