I was provided a loaner phone from AT&T to perform this review.
Most users are not fans of the Amazon Fire phone, I mean honestly if I wasn’t a phone reviewer I might have had a problem with it. Switching from one device to another can be tricky. You fall in love with your phone, how it works, how the programs fit together, the direction of swiping and then going to a new phone is hard. To me, I’m finally used to it, but in the beginning I would hate a phone only because I didn’t like learning the new operating system.
I found the Amazon Fire Phone to be easy to learn and I actually liked it. I found it to be quick, the camera was quick, it uploaded quickly and it was easy to use. The phone has a nice feel in my hand and it has some great app options for not being an iPhone or Android.
