Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Nextbit Robin comes with notable improvements


As the startup promised back in March, the Nextbit Robin is now being updated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Although the latest version of Android is important enough on its own, it looks like the update also brings some notable non-Marshmallow improvements, particularly in the camera and audio department.

If you're an audiophile, you're going to love this new update for the Nextbit Robin, as it introduces audio driver improvements. The stereo front-facing speakers now feature a meatier tone that gives the illusion of more power, and the same audio enhancements are available even when you're listening on headphones.

Probably the most important change included in this new update is a new camera app. On the visual side, the app is now less cluttered and easier to use. However, the best thing about the new update is that the Nextbit Robin is now significantly faster to save photos. In our Nextbit Robin Review, we noted that the photos captured with the handset's primary camera have average image quality, but we were a bit disappointed by the unusual slow image capture time. 

Nexbit also says that they've fine-tuned the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip that powers the Robin, instructing users to expect faster performance and better battery life. 

Aside from everything we've mentioned above, the new Nextbit Robin update also brings a slew of security patches as well 184 new emoji.

If you have a Nextbit Robin, the update should be heading your way really soon. Once you've updated your cloud-centric smartphone, make sure to drop us a line and let us know if you dig the tweaks included in this Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update.
