In a world flooded with Apple and Samsung smartphones, one can understand why some consumers feel a need to go against the trend and against mass choice, in order to feel a little different. If you also strive to find yourself Which is different from the rest - you should know the Nextbit Robin, which is probably one of the most unique devices in the area and is now offered for preorder.

The Robin offers a moderately high spec not bad at all, with an 5.2-inch IPS screen and an 1080p resolution with Gorilla Glass 4, 808 hexagonal cores, memory Of 3GB, volume The built - in 32GB (plus 100GB 's The 13 camera is a primary megapixel camera with dual-phase and dual-phase AF focus, a secondary 5 megapixel camera and an 2,680mAh battery, all packaged in a square and sharp-looking polycarbonate, offering two interesting shades and a refreshing and unique look on the latest smartphone landscape .

Other interesting features of the Robin are a pair of front stereo speakers, a built-in fingerprint sensor, NFC, 802.11ac standard Wi-Fi connectivity support, Quick Charge 2.0 standard battery support, camera RAW format photography support, third-party open monitor software that comes with open bootloader and warranty that also covers rum versions of all kinds - and the title is Built-in support for Nextbit cloud storage services, with a "smart" method that uploads to the cloud to make sure there's enough free space on the device's built-in memory in any situation. There is loot Which can upload files to the cloud automatically, but Nextbit insists that their system is smarter, more natural and more convenient to use than all competitors.

The Robin is intended to reach consumers in February after a successful recruitment campaign on the X -UMX platform, in which it managed to collect a little more than 2016 million

The cloud is now available on the company's official 400 website, which makes it a very interesting deal for cloud storage enthusiasts, and for anyone who is fed up with the industry's leading vendors for one reason or another. This is probably not the most affordable Snapdragon 808 device on the market (this title still seems to belong to Xiaomi Mi 4c), but it seems to be a competitive offer to those of Motorola and.

Similar to other devices offered for sale only through the network, it is worth noting that in this case, the transfer to Israel also reduces the cost of the deal, with a cost of not less than 95 dollars. Residents of the United States will be able to receive the device at a much more reasonable delivery price of 25 dollars, incidentally.

Equal? Unnecessary? Tell us what you think about the reactions.

  1. Can't really see what's special here ...
    Standard phone with cloud storage.
    It seems nicer to me it's his symmetry.
    According to the photos, it looks like it can be held up or down.

  2. Quite an idiotic idea, what's different from any other phone that just joins 100GB's Dropbox / Google Drive account? It costs $ 2 a month, and better than any name-free company that has been up in Kickstarter and God knows how long it will survive.

  3. I don't understand what's special about this phone either.

    But the thing that bothers me most about the article and probably also on the phone is that there is no reference to whether the battery is replaceable (outside the lab of course) or whether it has a memory card expansion slot.

    I say this most bluntly, and hope the writer of the article will take it personally.
    And in addition, awareness of the matter will rise and continue to rise in the future for the other forum members and readers even without me having to be the only one to address the matter.

    The fact that it is not possible to replace a battery, and / or memory card expansion, is a blatant disregard for customers and a nasty attempt to impose anti-consumer marketing constraints on the entire public.
    This is also the support and cooperation of the "reporter" with the experience of certain companies to disseminate information from the public and dictate them a terminology of thinking and awareness.

    Both the companies that do this, and the reporters who collaborate with them and do not say a word about it, deserve scorn and harsh criticism for it.
    They contribute to the global erosion of consumer power on the smartphone market.

    There is a similar negative trend in many areas.
    USB FLASH DRIVES where product performance data is elevated.
    In the field of Internet where information about the UPLOAD is raised.

    Reporters in those areas should first and foremost serve the public interest through proper disclosure.
    And also criticism that the manufacturers themselves are overstating the information and trying to impose on the customers castrated and engineered products for cynical and consumer unreasonable exploitation.

  4. Lol one of the exaggerations ……
    Really you're a little exaggerated.
    I have been with iPhone for two and a half years with one and two more years with the other and I did not have to charge a battery even once ...
    It just seems unnecessary to me.
    My sister with the Galaxy S5 has also been around for quite some time (maybe a year and a half?) And never had to replace a battery or take it out.

  5. I don't understand what's special about this phone either. But the thing that bothers me most about the article and probably also on the phone is that there is no reference to whether the battery is interchangeable (outside the lab of course).

    That will also put the battery in the cloud, and then it will answer your 2 questions… ^ _ ^

  6. Lol from the exaggerations ...... really you are a little exaggerated. I have been with iPhone for two and a half years with one and two more years with the other and I did not have to charge a battery even once ... It just seems unnecessary to me. My sister with the Galaxy S5 has also been around for quite some time (maybe a year and a half?) And never had to replace a battery or take it out.

    I do not exaggerate at all.
    Some manufacturers prefer purely economic reasons, and with a clear intention to design their customers to dictate their information and sell more services, not to give them an extension to memory.
    Then customers buy 16GB versions instead of 8GB or 32GB instead of 16GB.
    And instead of paying the memory card for the cheap price of a memory card they may already have (not to mention music and movie cards can be conveniently and quickly copied from device to device), they pay 4 over and over for that little extra memory, and they don't have the flexibility And the convenience of adjusting according to a need that may not be fully known in advance and may change over time.

    Regarding battery I agree that it is less important, but it is also possible to see how manufacturers like APPLE make a lot of money for it in their labs.
    There was a famous story that led to a huge lawsuit against APPLE, that on the first iPad ALT Battery was complete after a year, and people had to pay a lot of money to APPLE labs because of it.

    And I have no doubt that it was a well-planned move, which happened to blow up inside them because they exaggerated.

    And so it is very important first of all to mention the existence or non-existence of these options in product articles.
    And maybe add a proper critical note that this is a disadvantage (even if some people do not consider it essential. There are people for them, yes).
    Certainly, statistically these things have implications for quite a few customers.

    Beyond my personal angle about using a device that lacks these options, there is also a wide statistical angle that I refer to.
    And maybe for you personally it is less important, and you got used to being without, but I suppose you can understand that for many other people it is important or will later emerge as a disadvantage of some kind or another.
    Therefore, it is appropriate to treat things in principle and globally as fair disclosure, as well as as a consumer feedback that has the power to influence products and consumer habits through consumer awareness of the matter.

  7. Obviously there are people who want a removable battery and some who don't really care because they're not going to replace batteries every second.
    I don't really understand manufacturing processes so I don't know if this is true but I think it is designed to lower production costs and maybe better battery efficiency (not closed on that)?
    In any case if you are within the warranty period you can replace the battery. If not, you do not have to go to a manufacturer's official lab. There are many who exchange much less and also have lots of information on the internet how to do it alone.
    Replacing a battery (with a non-removable phone) is a matter of 10 minutes even less.
    Then again, you don't have to overdo it.

    As for the extra memory, I also don't really agree with the high pricing for the extra memory because the jump between memory level and the next level doesn't really satisfy the price of the extra memory. So here it is very clear that there is another POS here.
    But again, 16GB is quite enough for the phone if run it correctly.
    Pictures can be uploaded to the cloud, no need to keep the phone (there is 15GB on Google Drive that is full !!! for pictures).
    Songs are full of apps that save music in the cloud or just a web radio (that's not what it used to be, today it's much more normal and efficient).
    So you have pretty much 10GB left for apps.
    Enough.

    Something in your logic was completely screwed up.
    Maybe you've been an Apple customer for too long.

  9. Well lol, you are already starting to bring in arguments that are not really related to the matter.

  10. And how to relate.
    You start making excuses for the manufacturers and tell all the customers that if they have no room then if they don't manage their affairs well.
    As if anyone who can't get along with 16GB and without an expansion card "doesn't hold the phone right".

    How unimaginable a person can be to not realize that others have different needs and uses.
    And that 16GB is very little for a person with a wide variety of media that he hears / - / is watching.
    Or a person who also installs a lot of games, or uses a file storage device as if it's a DOK (the smartphone is always on you and can be used for wireless copying).

    And with respect to cloud storage, it's not a memory card replacement.
    Depending on the quality of the Internet in the country and the quantitatively restrictive draconian conditions is not really something you can or should rely on.
    Not to mention that it wastes a lot of battery access to it instead of a card and doesn't allow for long day savings.
    A weakness that only strengthens in the face of the possibility of a new replacement.

    In your world, everything only works out well when the user is in front of a charging point all day and never forgets a friend, and is reduced to fit the constraints and constraints that are in stark contrast to consumer preferences.
    Not only is the manufacturer trying to surface the consumer consciousness to those natural things that are good for the consumer, you are doing them a useful idiot service.

    Your very objection to my natural desire and others as consumers to seek proper disclosure on these two basic things.

    Please calm down please….
    I didn't say it was for everyone.
    Obviously some people need more volume. For this, there are versions with greater volume.
    And what to do, most people in the world get along with 16GB is that you're part of the small percentage that needs more volume is something else.
    They probably want to make money from the minority who want a more premium device…
    On the 16GB they are well earned and that is their mainstream. So whoever wants a device with more volume will pay more. They don't really care about the few who get annoyed at the fact that there is no expansion card because they don't earn much from them either (because, again, the majority comes from 16GB devices) ...

    And you're confused again with my opinion of what's going on in the market.
    I personally don't need more volume because I get by with beauty. It's that you don't get along is your business.
    I didn't say you didn't manage your phone well. I said you can get along with 16GB too.

    Maybe if you so much want to change things, set up your own Kickstart project and recruit people who want a removable battery and an external memory card.

  12. It's you who looks like someone who needs to calm down.
    Go check out what a useful asshole is before you jump.
