As a Tech enthusiast, I really want to get an Amazon Fire Phone. I want to know how this phone works, wether or not I could recommend this phone to anyone.

I have been on AT&T network for the last 4 years off-contract. I personally do not want to bound with a new contract with any phone providers anymore. My choice is to purchase an Amazon Fire Phone at full price. I am not sure if I want to spend $649 for an out of contract purchase.
