Amazon Fire Phone Gets Much Needed Update

In descending order, Amazon excel at Retail, eReaders, Tablets and…. (eventually) Phones.

It’s not that the recent (US exclusive) Amazon Fire Phone wasn’t impressive. However a series of glaring technical errors and omissions held it back from the glory its other enterprises typically enjoy.

That said, the first software update has just rolled out, and it aims to rectify any initial teething issues. Fire OS 3.5.1 boasts “new and enhanced features” over-the-air. PC or Mac users can download it manually.

Additions include,

*App Folders
*App Grid Collections
*Home Button Double Tap (Alternate/Shut Down Active Apps)
*Lenticular Photo
*HD Video Sharing Via Email/MMS
*Enhanced Battery Performance

You can download Fire OS 3.5.1 via the Amazon Fire Phone’s settings.
