Once again you can pick up a great deal on the Nextbit Robin. As they did last month, the company is running a sale over at Amazon where you can pick up the 32GB phone in either their unique Mint or Midnight blue color for just $199. The Robin normally sells for $299 but the company has been running this $199 promotion every few months this year which for what the phone offers is a steal. I reviewed the Robin a few weeks ago and it remains one of my favorites. I have no problem in recommending it.
For those that don’t recall, the Nextbit Robin has some great features and offers a unique device-meets-cloud storage solution. It has 32GB of onboard storage merged with 100 GB online storage, so you always have the space you need. Robin seamlessly backs up your apps and photos, intelligently archives the stuff you’re not using, and easily restores items when you need them. The idea is that you never run out of space. Those less used apps are backed up into the cloud but then are instantly available when you want them. You’ll know an app has been backed up into the cloud as it will be grey on your Robin.
As for other key specs, the Robin has a 5.2″ IPS LCD display protected by Gorilla Glass 4 and renders full 1080p HD. It has a 12MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus, a 5MP front facing
camera, dual front facing speakers with dual amplifiers for some outstanding audio quality for a phone. The phone only works on GSM so if you are a Sprint, U.S. Cellular or Verizon customer, sorry, it won’t work for you. The bands supported include:
- GSM 850/900/1800/1900
- HSPA (3G) 850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100
- LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28
At this price, the Robin is a awfully hard deal to beat.
