Amazon provides a massive update for low-selling Fire Phone

Amazon's AT&T-paired Fire Phone get's a much needed update

If you're one of the apparent few Fire Phone owners, Amazon have just pushed out a large update - adding lots of standard features to the phone that have been claimed as 'necessities on launch' that were, for some reason not included.




If a Fire Phone has been on your to-buy list, you may be waiting out for a 'fire sale' like most of us have, otherwise now might be a good time to pick one up for yourself. This update includes things such as VPN connectivity support, different keyboard language supports, phone number blocking, toggling for SMS character counts, custom ringtones, continuous scrolling for Kindle and a 'best shot' feature for the camera.


We know exactly what you're thinking - "many of these features are incredibly basic and should have been included on release". We know.


Whatever the previous blunders may be, this AT&T-only mobile has seen a massive and well-needed overhaul. However, will this alone convince you to take the plunge?
