In this world dominated by major brands it’s quite hard to decide on what items to pick. With the competition being so palpable, it’s often difficult to be sure you’ve made the right choice. That’s why it’s so important if you see something you actually like to make sure to get that – otherwise you’ll be overwhelmed by the choices. For those of you interested, a particular phone is out today, and the cloud storage Nextbit Robin is to be shipped today.
And yes, the phone is totally worth the wait and its Kickstarter backing, at least in this reporter’s opinion. I’m not going to start presenting boring specs, which you can get from the Kickstarter page, I’m just going to talk about how the phone feels and what is particularly appealing and unpleasant about it.
I’m going to start with the design – what I initially thought I wasn’t going to like about it, the rectangular shape, turned out to actually be quite appealing. Despite the lack of round edges, the phone is very easily handleable; however your hands tend to get crampy after a couple of hours of regular use.
The color is also surprisingly a plus, making the light blue colored device one of the few that manages to still look professional despite its vivid coloration. The shell also feels very good in your hands, surprisingly sturdy and resistant. The 5.2 inch screen has a resolution of 1920×1080, and the display is very high quality.
But here we are to the most important feature of the device. For Nextbit Robin users, gone are the days when you had to be careful with how many apps you installed or how many pictures you took due to the limited storage space.
Along with the phone’s 32 GB of internal storage, you benefit from an additional 100 GB of cloud storage which come free of charge with the phone. It’s absolutely amazing to stop worrying about how much space you have left before installing anything or going to an event where you can take pictures.
As for the negative points, there are a few, although not that many. The wake up button on the device’s side is the worst feature about this $399 phone. If I hadn’t been used to a similar one from my old Allview, I probably would have been far more frustrated with it. It’s simply hard to press, requiring a few hours or days of getting adjusted to it.
And that’s pretty much all I can say about the Nextbit Robin for now. As it ships today, if you are already a backer on Kickstarter, you will get your device real soon. Otherwise, if you’re interested in getting a new smart phone, you should at least check it out. It won’t hurt.
