The Fire Phone has been on the market for just over four months and commercial (or even critical) reception has been lackluster. Arguably the biggest issue with the handset is its price. Amazon is solving that issue now by lowering the price to $199. The list price prior to the discount is $449; however, the off-contract price of the Fire Phone actually started at $649. So now the Fire Phone has an off-contract price comparable to on-contract counterparts.
Will the price change affect the Fire Phone’s performance? We doubt it. Let us know in the comments if you intend of giving this handset a look for yourself or anyone else this holiday season.
