Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 12 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Fresh, minimalist, and unique design, that exudes a sense of calmness - if you want a handset that truly stands out, this is the one!

  • Excellent build quality

  • Comfortable grip on the handset's straight sides

  • Flawless fingerprint reader

  • Excellent fingerprint reader placement - in the power/lock button

  • Coherent, atmospheric, aesthetically designed user interface

  • Solid overall performance and gameplay experience

  • Unique, intuitive cloud storage integration is the defining USP of the phone - instead of supplementing the Robin's 32GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot, Nextbit built a system that automatically archives apps and photos you haven't used in a while, and stores them on Nextbit's servers online (you get up to 100GB of storage)- you can re-download any archived app or photo by tapping its grayed-out icon!

  • Good audio quality

  • Loud audio through dual front-facing speakers

  • Fast charging support

What we didn't

  • Battery life could be better

  • Average camera quality, especially with macros

  • Camera capture is a bit on the slow side, in both HDR and automatic modes

  • The benefit of having cloud storage, as opposed to a microSD card slot is arguable - a lot of people will simply prefer the latter
