Today’s Deal – Nextbit Robin for $169 on Amazon

Today’s Deal over at Amazon is on the fantastic Android phone, the Nextbit Robin.  Right now you can pick one up in their Midnight color for just $169.  That is a phenomenal price for such a power packed phone.

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:

  • HSPA (3G) 850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100 
  • LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900

At this price, the Robin is a awfully hard deal to beat.

I have a Robin and it is a solid phone that I have no problem recommending.  If you want to read my thoughts, you can find my review of it here.
