Nextbit Robin for $100

Mint color available. Steal for $100.
FYI, cloud storage will shut down on March 1.

But with the specs, unlocked bootloader, and community support, should be a good deal for a backup phone.

Specs are similar to Nexus 5X. The company has now been acquired by Razer.

Hey Rebels,

We would like to sincerely thank all of you for using Smart Storage. The Smart Storage service will, however, be ending on March 1st, 2018.

What happens on March 1st, 2018:

If you haven't signed out of Smart Storage, you will be automatically logged out of our servers. Images (thumbnails in gallery) and apps (cloud icons on launcher) that are archived and are not local to the phone will not be accessible through your phone anymore. This includes Apps in the FAB tab. All the images that are backed up until that point will be available on our tools cloud.nextbit.com. Only the content that is local will be accessible from the phone at that point.

If you want to keep app data, be sure to restore all of your apps manually, and pin them to prevent them from being offloaded.

Until the service completely ends, we have worked very hard to provide you a way to download your pictures. This is now available at cloud.nextbit.com. You have the option to select images individually or download all as a large zip. Please note that the download speed depends on your internet connection. Please use the same account to login as you have used on your Robin phone.

We plan to keep this tool active until April 1st, 2018. After that, all the personal information and data that has been collected from you will be purged and we won't be able to recover your data. However, information that must be stored in accordance with applicable laws and regulations will be stored for the period specified by the relevant laws and regulations and then disposed of immediately.

Thank you so much for supporting our team and Robin.

Sort of tempting, but OTOH the Snapdragon 808 was part of the generation with heat-throttling issues. Not as bad as the 810 [arstechnica.com], but still a downgrade from the 805 in sustained performance.

I have this phone and I use it regularly as my daily driver. Yes, The camera is trash, battery life is asinine but it is not a terrible phone at all. It is super snappy and I have never experienced any lag with this phone at all. The stereo speakers are super loud and the phone is so thin and durable. I literally have never put the phone inside a case ive dropped it more than 50+ times but still no crack. Even though I agree with all y'all in terms of price, it is a great startup phone for a teen/elderly person. I bought the phone at this price 6+ months ago and is surely worth it if it was around $70-85 dollars.

Isn't there some decent custom roms for this? At $50 to $60 I'd give it a go...

Still a great phone even at 100. Amazing how the sub is so full of haters. Which phone has equivalent specs at a lower price? 1080p, fingerprint, NFC, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM. A lot of phones above 100 bucks have worse specs. I wish major shops would carry this again.

P.S. The cloud thing is indeed bullshit, and I don't think anyone cares for that. Was obviously a stupid idea from the start. Not why anyone would be interested in this phone at all, IMHO.

P.P.S. Folks are always impressed with it, and ask what sort of phone is it.

Regarding the cloud: would using the Google cloud for photos work on this? Did/does Robin have a separate cloud storage? I do like that the speaker quality is good. Is the camera really that bad? I can't think of another $100. phone with these specs.
