But when tech pundits ask, “Are these more than just gimmicks?”

I have another question too. Remember when iOS 7 came out and there was a whole kerfuffle about Perspective Zoom (the tilting effect on the home screen) and how it was making people with vertigo sick?

I wonder if the same effect will happen here? The 3D is far more pervasive throughout the entire Fire Phone OS.
