Cloud based Nextbit Robin now $299 everywhere


Earlier this month, the Nextbit Robin was cut in price by $100 to $299 in the U.S. and India. But the company posted a message today saying that it didn't want to play favorites. So Nextbit is now offering the phone at a price of $299 for everyone. The deal includes free standard shipping. Besides its unique design, the Robin offers users 100GB of cloud based storage on top of the 32GB of native storage that the handset sports. Photos are backed up in the cloud, and that is also where you'll find apps that are not being used much. But when the time comes and you need these apps, they are quickly made available on the phone.

The rest of the specs include a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.2-inch LCD screen with an FHD resolution of 1080 x 1920. A Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood with a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside. The 13MP rear-facing camera includes PDAF, and a 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. A fingerprint sensor is embedded in the side-mounted power button, and the phone does support NFC and Quick Charge 2.0. A Type-C USB port can be found on the model.

A CDMA model that was in the works was eventually killed off, which means that the Nextbit Robin is available as a GSM model only. This means that in the U.S. the phone is compatible with the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. And unlike most manufacturers, Nextbit wants you to customize your phone. Unblocking the bootloader and flashing custom ROMs will not affect the warranty on the device.


If you're interested in the Nextbit Robin, you can order it in either Mint or Midnight from Amazon or directly from Nextbit. Simply click on the appropriate sourcelink.

Might have to pick one of these up. I hope this price reduction doesn't signify low sales numbers. I hope to see this Kickstart more in the future .

The price point makes me wonder if there are ways to improve the battery life.
