Amazon provides smartphones with Google Apps and Amazon apps firmware




Amazon has begun with the delivery of smartphones with both Amazon apps like Google Apps in the firmware. The shop gives Prime customers discounts in exchange for the co-delivery of the Amazon services and viewing ads on the lockscreen.

Amazon calls the phones Prime Exclusive Phones in exchange for ads and flour feathers Apps customers get $ 50 off the purchase price. For now, only users in the US use the offer to purchase smartphones. The two phones are now in the program are a model of the American brand Blu and Moto Motorola G4.

The ads appear on the lockscreen as notifications and users can wipe them if they have no interest. The model is not much different as what Amazon is doing for years with its e-readers and tablet under its own brand, which is usually a cheaper option with ads on the lockscreen.

The US site Recode suspects that Google will use the phones from Amazon as an example in the case of Google and the European Commission. The Commission suspects Google abuses its Android phones.

Bundling its own apps and features, as well as doubles with services from Google, is nothing new. Both manufacturers and providers have been doing this almost since the beginning of the rise of Android. Also, there are lots of Microsoft services in the past on smartphones from various Android manufacturers.
