Nextbit Robin Review

Nextbit Robin Review


The Nextbit Robin is a Kickstarter phone, but don’t run away yet, because here’s the thing, it ACTUALLY WORKED! Crazy, I know.  The phone has three Gbs of RAM, 32 Gbs of storage onboard, a 5.2 inch, 1080p IPS LCD display, a 13 Megapixel camera, with a 5 Megapixel front-facing camera, and the phone runs off of a  Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.

The big draw of the phone is its inbuilt cloud storage, whenever you start to run out of space, the phone will scan your app usage, and upload your least used apps to the cloud, with all of their data, to be recalled at any time.

The 32 Gbs of storage is more than enough for most people, but for the mega users, there are 100 Gbs of cloud storage, so fill your boots.

The phone performs really well, with no studders when navigating the home screen, or browsing the web. And a large amount of RAM allows apps to be recalled, with no restarting.

The camera works really well in bright light but only produces mediocre lower light shots.

The screen looks really nice and doesn’t attract fingerprints, and the dual front-facing speakers are awesome.

The build quality feels nice, but the phone has a full plastic body, so you probably want a good case so it doesn’t break at an unseemly time.

Overall, I really like the Robin. The cloud storage works great, with apps being recalled easily, and the Robin skin over android is fitted to this cloud-based phone, with options to pin apps, so they don’t get recalled, and a nice looking grayed out icon for apps in the cloud.
