SIM-free Amazon Fire Phone will be £99 for the next 24 hours


Amazon will be selling its Fire Phone for just US$200 (S$270) for the next few hours or so.

The one-day deal will slash the price of the 32GB handset right the way down from US$449 (S$607), following disappointing sales and reviews since its launch.

The Fire Phone scored three stars in Stuff's own Amazon Fire Phone review. We felt that its Dynamic Display didn't really bring much to the table, while its lack of access to the entire Google Play Store and cluttered 'buy everything from Amazon now' interface, just didn't justify its launch price tag.

But at US$200 (S$270), it's a whole different story. For starters, it's no slouch in the power department, packing in 2GB of RAM and Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor - the same piece of silicon that's beating within the innards of the LG G3.

Its camera is decent too, with a 13MP sensor and optical image stabilisation, producing decent shots in low-light conditions, and it comes with one month of Amazon Prime if you fancy giving the retail giant's one-day delivery and video services a spin.
