Released in June of 2014, the Fire Phone boasted features that couldn’t be found on its rivals. The most impressive was its so-called Dynamic Perspective.
While the Fire tablet enjoyed initial success, the Fire Phone was met with very mixed reviews. Critics took issue with its high price, lackluster OS, unimpressive specs, and exclusivity to AT&T.
Name: Fire Phone Brand: Amazon Fire Operating System: Fire OS First Released: July 25th, 2014 Price: $649-$749 System on a Chip: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
Launched in 2014, the fire phone by Amazon was a 3D-enabled smartphone. When the Kindle Fire hit the market in the fall of 2011, the Fire Phone was already in the works.
Fire Phone’s failure comes down to one word: hubris. Enormous pride and confidence were at the center of it.
