Amazon Fire Phone receives update to fix the bugs
After months of rumors and speculation, Amazon finally introduced the Amazon Fire Phone in June, the first smartphone of the best known online retailers “Amazon.” The Fire Phone is a upper middle range, with features focused on Amazon’s services, either to buy music, movies or any product sold on this huge e-commerce store. The terminal was one of the most awaited smartphone, but the first users’ interest have not been too enthusiastic. Currently the device is for sale in the United States and has already received enough reviews. Now the company has announced the first major update for the Amazon Fire Phone, and it is now available to download.
Just as happens in most smartphones, the Amazon Fire Phone can be updated via OTA without using cables. You can also perform the download on the computer manually and then install it via the USB cable. Besides solving malfunctions and battery life, this update contains many new features that improves the user experience. One of the most important feature is the option of multitasking, a feature that surprisingly was not available as standard. Quick Switch, this is what the application switcher has been named, and can be activated by double-clicking on Home button so that we can move between processes and open applications. Now there is possibility to create folders grouping several icons, again such a basic feature that strikes us was not included from the start.
But that is not all, the function Carousel Pinning allows you to add shortcuts of your favorite applications on the home screen, the lenticular photos now makes eleven shots for better visual effect and you can also delete mail from the home screen. Amazon has also improved the method for video sharing via mail or multimedia message, in both cases at high resolution. Finally, the company states that have made dozens of updates in the system to get a longer duration of battery.
The Amazon Fire Phone has a screen of 4.7 inches with HD resolution, that seems to be mid-range, but the rest of the feature is good. The camera is thirteen megapixels and is accompanied by an optical image stablization, a component that prevents tremors images. It has a Snapdragon 800 chipset that run at 2.2 Ghz clock speed and also has a sophisticated front sensors that are responsible for moving the interface like a three dimensional environment.
