Nextbit Robin Smartphone - Kickstarter Edition (Unboxing and Photos)

/img/nextbit-robin/IMG_1874-Large.jpg

In the latter part of last year I backed a Kickstarter project for a new phone called Robin, by a new startup called Nextbit. This article details the phone and accessories I received in the form of an unboxing video and photos, with some basic specs. I will provide a more thorough review once I have used the phone for a while.

You can check out the Kickstarter campaign page or their website here:

Nextbit Robin - Specification and Features #

The phone is basically an android smartphone with a unique twist. The phone has a fairly standard 32GB of internal storage, but it also has 100GB of storage (for free) available in the cloud. Although I am not going to go into detail in this article I have provided a direct link to the specs of the phone here:

Nextbit Robin - Unboxing Video and Photos #

I have made a video available on youtube which shows the unboxing of the phone and accessories. The video was shot at night, in a rush, on my birthday, so I apologise for the bad light. It should however show you what you need.

Since then I have taken some photos (in daylight) which should give you a bit more detail (see below for those).

Just for reference the photos and video detail the following:

  1. Nextbit Robin Phone in the electric colorway/scheme - This colour scheme is exclusive to kickstarter, so is now unavailable, but you can still get the mint and midnight colorways detailed on the nextbit website
  2. Bumps Fog Case
  3. Scratches Frost Case
  4. Quick Charger (EU version)
  5. Glass screen protector
  6. Nextbit T-shirt
  7. Very special SIM tray (Gold)

I will provide more details on the phones software and general day to day usage once I have used the phone for a while, and if you have read this article and don't know what Kickstarter is you can check out my article which explains this here.

Please let me know if you want any further details/photos in the comments, and share if you like!

Here you can see the glass screen protector installed. It is a good fit and fairly thin, you can just about see the lip it creates. It only covers the glass, not the top and bottom of the phone.
