Five Up, Five Down: The Good And The Bad Of The New Amazon Fire Phone


5. Con: No MicroSD Card Slot

The $199 phone model comes with 32 GB of storage, and $299 for 64 GB.

If you are a pretty heavy user of your smartphone, you may want to expand your storage capacity, but there is a problem. The Amazon Fire Phone does not offer a microSD card slot, which means having to shell out the extra $100 for storage space. As a comparison, smartphones from Samsung, LG, HTC, Nokia and more all offer microSD card slots to inexpensively expand your storage space, however, Apple's iPhone and now the Amazon Fire Phone do not.
