The ongoing Flipkart Freedom Sale has made some serious price cuts on various devices. The one that caught our eyes is the Rs. 5000 discount on Nextbit Robin.

Nextbit Robin

Nextbit Robin, the cloud-centric smartphone in India, had Rs. 19,999 listed on its price tag. Now the device is available for Rs. 14,999. In case, if you are an HDFC Bank Credit card holder, you could grab an additional 10% discount. There is an exchange offer as well.

To quickly list its specifications, Nextbit Robin features a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It has a 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard memory. An additional 100GB is available on Cloud. The Robin comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. Two amplifiers power Robin’s dual, front-facing speakers. In terms of optics, Nextbit Robin has a 13MP rear camera with phase-detection, autofocus, and dual-tone flash. There is also a 5MP in the front. The power button of the phone also doubles as a fingerprint sensor. Nextbit Robin runs Android Marshmallow OS and it has a 2680mAh battery to power the device.

In terms of connectivity, the smartphone supports 4G, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac. It also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology and uses USB Type-C cable to charge/transfer data with a computer.

The USP of the Nextbit Robin is definitely its cloud-storage system. Robin automatically syncs to Nextbit’s cloud and clears up space on its internal memory while preserving the data on the cloud. The images, apps, etc. are archived in the cloud and hence, can be retrieved easily when needed. Google authentication is provided for security. It supports two-factor verification.

It is still overpriced with the given features. With unlimited data a thing of past, data costs going up, a cloud centric phone remains just a niche product, considering the storage woes can be cheaply addressed with cheap sd cards or phones with larger internal storage, which are available at same or far less prices in the market
Nothing is special in it except the cloud thing

Correct, we cant have it all ! We need to strike a balance in features to make it work for us. There is no perfect phone, and there never will be, someone always will find something that does not work for them. My point was, if it really bothers one that much, it can be either opted out or set to work when connected to charger. 32 GB should be plenty for many, and in case it runs out of charge, not to worry, cloud to the rescue 🙂
