phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 12 expert review(s)

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
