2. Con: Weak Music Streaming Service

One of the strengths of the phone is supposed to be its entertainment features, but there are definitely some glaring holes.

Amazon's music streaming service, Prime Music, does not offer anything from Universal Music Group because the two sides could not come to a financial agreement. This is a big problem considering Universal is the largest music corporation on the planet.

That means you can't stream anything from artists like Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Elton John, Andrea Bocelli, and hundreds more. I mean, some may like a phone that can't stream Kanye West, but personally, this would be a big problem for others.
