Amazon Fire Phone Features: 4 Innovations You Will Most Likely Love
Fire phone comes with a bunch of innovative features some of which you won’t find in any other smart phone. Amazon promises you the best possible user experience, ease of use and lots of useful gimmicks.
Fire phone is supposed to be the phone in which the drawbacks known from other smart phones are eliminated and replaced with a bunch of brand-new and unheard-of features such as Firefly or Dynamic Perspective.
Is this promise kept? I think that it definitely is!
If you are thinking of buying Fire phone, this is the article just for you! Let’s take a deeper look at some of the most popular Fire phone features and see what they are all about.
This is without doubt a novelty you didn’t meet in any other smart phone. What is Dynamic Perspective really all about?
Dynamic Perspective is an especially-designed sensor system which will react and respond to how you view, hold and move your Fire phone (using its 4 in-built front cameras). Thanks to Dynamic Perspective, objects on the screen on your Fire phone appear in 3D, which looks both very attractive and realistic.
You will always clearly see what’s on the screen even if you aren’t holding it straight in front of your face (the object on the screen will adjust to your head’s position). This might be especially useful if you are, for example, driving and your Fire phone is stuck to the windshield and you are using it as your navigation system.
Dynamic perspective introduces a completely new user experience. For the first days of using my Fire phone, I was simply playing with Dynamic Perspective for its own sake (because it’s both beautiful and funny).
What are some of the possible uses of Dynamic Perspective?
Dynamic Perspective is undoubledly one of the best Fire phone features. Let’s see how you can use it in practice.
Immersive Gaming Experience
Playing games that support dynamic perspective is really lots of fun!
In such a game you can look at objects from different angles or see what’s below or above your current screen. Playing a game that supports Dynamic Perspective is really incredible. Take a look at the screenshots below to see what I mean.
I am now compiling the list of Fire phone games that support Dynamic Perspective and will soon present it to you.
Dynamic Perspective lets you analyze maps as if you were really there in those places. Buildings and the most popular spots (like the Empire State Building) will appear very real (and, of course, in 3D).
Take a look at the screenshots below to see how Dynamic Perspective works in Maps.
Fun Screen Locks And Icons
Amazon Fire phone comes with absolutely stunning screen locks which, of course, fully support Dynamic Perspective.
Every time I take my Fire phone into hand and am about to unlock it, I play with these screen locks for a moment (by moving my Fire phone in different directions).
Here you can see some of my favorite screen locks (seen from slightly different perspectives).
Firefly technology is yet another innovative and ground-breaking Fire phone feature. I think that this technology (in the years to come) may change the way we do shopping. So what is it all about?
Fire phone has a dedicated button which upon pressing opens the camera and lets you take a shot of or record anything around you are interested in.
What’s so great about it is that once you take a shot of or record, for example, printed web or e-mail addresses, phone numbers, QR, movies, songs, or other products, your phone will recognize what it is and offer you other actions you may want to take regarding this item (call the number, visit the website or order the identified object from Amazon).
In the case of physical products, you will be able to instantly order and buy them. If you are unsure what movie is going on TV, your Fire phone will tell you the title and let you watch it on your Fire.
This technology seems like from the future, doesn’t it? If you are an Amazon boy or girl, you will love it because most of the products your phone identifies will be available for you to buy from Amazon (at quite decent prices).
Let’s see how my Fire phone identified the following objects:
- Avatar movie played from YouTube
- My own laptop computer
- My website on the computer screen
According to Amazon, Firefly can identify up to 100 million different objects!
Unfortunately, it didn’t manage to identify my wedding ring. 🙁 But still it made a great job.
The third technology proves that Amazon really cares about its customers more than any other manufacturer or company in the world.
If you have any problems or issues with your Fire phone, you can use the Mayday feature and get instant access to free and live (on your device) tech support with an Amazon expert (24/7, 365 days a year).
You will see the tech expert on your screen (but they won’t see you) who will either guide you and tell you what you need to do or do it for yourself.
Since this feature is completely free, it’s really worth having (especially in the case of new users and no very technology-savvy users).
The Mayday feature is basically composed of three features: User Guide (available any time on your phone over WiFi), Phone & Email support (where you can request live help) and Billing & Data help where you will be directed to your network carrier.
It’s extremely easy to open the Mayday function. Access Quck Notifications and Setting and press the Mayday button. Here are a few screenshots from my Fire phone and the Mayday feature.
Apart from these three innovative features, Fire phone also offers you two really great gimmicks: one year of Amazon prime and unlimited cloud storage for photos and videos taken with your Fire. That’s really cool, isn’t it?
- One Year of Amazon Prime means access to millions of items such as TV shows, movies, songs, books, and much more.
- Unlimited Cloud Storage means you don’t have to worry any more about what to delete. You can take as many photos as you want and they will all be backed up in the Amazon cloud which you can access from other devices or your desktop (using your Amazon account).
That’s Not All Fire Phone Has To Offer
Of course, these four Fire phone features are not everything Fire phone can offer you or can do. However, these four features make Fire phone stand out from the crowd. If you like these features and find them useful, then Fire phone will be a great choice for you.
