Head-To-Head: Amazon Fire Phone Vs. Samsung Galaxy S5


The Galaxy S5's shooter packs a sensor with 16 million pixels and can capture 3,840 x 2160 video at 30 fps. Fire Phone's 13-megapixel main camera is on par with that of the Galaxy S4, which still takes amazing pictures. Fire Phone can capture 1,080p video at 30 fps with either its rear or 2.1-megapixel front camera. Galaxy S5's front camera is a 2.0-megapixel model. Oh, then there's the fact that Fire has three more front-facing cameras that combine to create 3-D images. Applications are still emerging, but the capability will offer developers enhanced facial recognition and other attributes of dynamic perspective to their apps.
