Have you ever felt bored with the routine Android smartphones? Then you must check out the Robin, designed and developed by Nextbit. Smartphones looking all the same in the functionality, but the Robin has come up with the unique way.
The Robin has arrived in India recently, and the device is exclusively available on Flipkart for the purchase. The price of the Nextbit Robin is Rs.19,999.00/- in the Indian market.
Nextbit Robin runs on the cloud storage and synchronises the unused or rarely used applications and other files into the cloud seamlessly. The users can back up the apps, photos and videos into the cloud and they can restore whenever needed/required. The Nextbit provides 100 GB online cloud storage which is free for the lifetime. Instead of worrying about the external SD cards this phone runs with the cloud storage.
Nextbit Robin is 5.2 inch with 1080p HD LCD display along Gorilla Glass 4. The device weighs 150 grams and 0.3 x 2.8 x 5.8 inches as the dimensions. The 3.5mm audio input is placed on the top of the device. Robin is available in two colours Mint and Midnight. The design and the build quality of the device are unique and more stylish in the hands. The viewing angles of the display are completely good and best result in the display segment. The charging port which supports the Type-C and the LED notification indicator is present at the bottom of the device.
The power button and the Fingerprint sensor are integrated with the same button. No more swiping and the passwords can be assigned to your device with one touch you can lock and unlock the device. This phone comes with dual speakers on the top and bottom of the device. The volume rockers are placed in the perfect position on the left side of the phone.
The Nano sim tray is placed below the fingerprint sensor on the right. The buttons and the lock button management is perfectly done and convenient to access. The overall design of this phone looks cool and stylish.
The internal storage of the device comes with 32 Gigs along with the cloud storage of 100 GB for the lifetime and for the additional usage the user has to subscribe to the required plans. Snapdragon 808 is the processor that comes with the Robin, and the RAM is 3GB.
Storage problems can be overcome, because Robin analyses the run out of the storage one month earlier. With just one move you can download the data from the cloud which you had stored, and it’s very simple to understand that the data with the Robin is gone but not lost. The data which is stored on the Robin can be secured with the encryption options. So the data is more safe and private on this device.
The applications can be archived to the cloud, and the archived apps are shown like the dead applications with the light colour. With one touch the applications are downloaded and restored from the cloud. If you don’t want to remove or not interested to sync in the cloud, you just drag down the application and release, so that the application gets pinned and it will not be archived.
The camera segment has a vital role in the Robin. The rear camera of the Robin comes with 13 MP with the phase detection autofocus, and the front facing camera is 5 MP which delivers the best selfies. The rear camera gives the best images and the depth of the image, the pixel quality is super fine. The images captured on the Robin are having several camera filters and options. Robin failed at capturing the photographs in the low-light conditions. It doesn’t support the 4K video recording which is the one of the big drawbacks in the camera segment.
The USB Type-C cable is given along with the device and it supports fast and quick charging, the non-removable battery with 2680 mAh which is less capacity when compared to other smartphones. The charging might lasts for the entire day with the moderate usage. The connectivity options like Bluetooth and the Wi-Fi are with the latest configurations. The Bluetooth comes with the 4.0 LE and even Robin also supports NFC, which helps in connecting the NFC supported devices.
The device boot up screen comes with the Robin by Nextbit, which is very cool with the nice theme. Robin runs the Nextbit OS, which is a smarter Android OS which enhances the user experience better.
The gaming performance is good on this phone since the processor, and the RAM is good. Playing the high-end games is giving the great experience with the LCD display.
With the specifications given Robin are less when compared with the handsets available in this price range. But this phone has the uniqueness and with this, you will be smarter every day. No other phones are available with this style and coolness. The Cloud storage which is provided by the Nextbit is not so effective in India since the data has to synchronise with the cloud.
