Amazon Fire Features You Wish Were On Galaxy S5 Prime
Amazon announced its highly anticipated Fire phone last week, which was well received by the mobile community. We shared reasons why we're excited about its release, then compared the Fire to other top mobile phones and even suggested games we'd like to see.
The Fire may not be the most powerful phone among its competitors, but it does offer some features that would make having any mobile device worthwhile. Samsung's Galaxy S5 Prime stirred up interest in the mobile sector, offering more features than its predecessor but no information was released regarding new innovations. The lack of information on new features on the S5 Prime made us think about some of our favorite features from the Fire we would like to see on phone.
Even though Samsung isn't in the retail business, we feel it can offer Amazon some competition by mimicking Firefly features (with a Bing partnership) and create a one stop shop with competitive retailer prices.
Unlimited Photo Storage
The Amazon Fire comes with 32GB or 64GB of storage, which makes it ideal for photos and the added ability to have them uploaded to Amazon's Cloud Drive. Amazon provides this service for free and it's unlimited.
This is a feature that all phone manufacturers should incorporate into their services. It's a major selling point, considering the quality of mobile cameras and the ability to have access to your fondest moments readily available without a third party application that can result in additional costs.
Mayday sounds like a pay day to us. Introduced last year on the Kindle Fire HDX, Mayday one touch customer service revolutionizes the way consumers will interact with their phones. Amazon tech experts can co-pilot you through any feature by drawing on your screen, walking you through how to do something or doing it for you.
Again, it's yet another feature that all phone manufacturers should incorporate into their services. Consider how many times you Google how to do something on your phone, or spent considerable time waiting for a tutorial at the Apple Genius Bar. Amazon Mayday delivers 24/7, 365 days a year live customer support in 15 seconds or less. The connection customers will have with the Amazon Brand and its high standard for customer service will change the way retailers do business in the future.
3D Dynamic Perspective
This is a custom-designed sensor system that responds to how you hold, view and move your phone. It incorporates 3D effects on a mobile device that sense when you move your head, and the app moves with you.
3D Dynamic Perspective might be seen as gimmicky, considering how poorly 3D was received for LCD TVs. Fire's 3D Dynamic Perspective is enabled by four cameras on the front, with a user interface that takes advantage of this feature. We're curious to see how developers will take advantage of it, especially within the mobile gaming space.
