New Robin cell phone has its stockpiling in the mists (hands-on)

New Robin cell phone has its stockpiling in the mists (hands-on) - Kickstarter telephone organization Nextbit is having a go at something other than what's expected with its Robin, an extra, square-sided Android handset set to send in January 2016.



Rather than attempting to pack the telephone with as much inner stockpiling as it can (like Asus' new telephone with its humongojus 256GB of capacity), the Robin will store all your flood photographs and even applications on its online servers. This cloud-first approach gives you 100GB of aggregate stockpiling when you figure the 32GB you get on the telephone - so that is 68GB for your online locker at this moment, with the alternative to get progressively if Nextbit grows your portion (or, as I think will in the long run happen, when you pay for additional).

Other telephone producers host offered third-gathering distributed storage administrations like Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Photos. What's diverse here is the organization's durable, constructed in strategy that won't oblige you to agree to benefits all alone while thinking about whether you'll need to erase old documents to make space for the new.

On the off chance that fruitful, Nextbit's sky's-the-limit way to deal with tackling the capacity issue could make its telephones less expensive and simpler to create, where other telephone creators may need to deliver and offer varieties with bigger stockpiling alternatives so as to take care of client demand. On the off chance that boundless substance is constantly helpful, Nextbit won't need to stress over feedback that the Robin doesn't have an expandable microSD card opening, or enough installed stockpiling.

I got an opportunity to look at a preproduction form of the Robin, and can share my musings as such. Subsequent to both equipment and programming are still basically Non model stage, you and I will both need to cut the organization some slack, and spare judgment for the last item.

Cloud storage: How it works 


The thought is that when you come up short on neighborhood space - or when you haven't took a gander at a photograph, video or application for quite a while - Robin consequently expels the benefit from the telephone and spares it to the cloud to free up space. Try not to stress, its makers say. You'll barely know this has happened, and you'll have the capacity to recover your substance immediately when you require it.



Say Robin transfers a photograph collection from two years prior. When you look on your telephone, despite everything you'll see the thumbnail in a lighter dark (I'd call this "ghosting"). Simply tap it and sit tight a couple of minutes for the photographs, or application, or whatever, to download again and let you open it up.

In principle this appears like it ought to work, particularly in case you're willing to exchange, say, 10 seconds here or there to redownload your stuff (it's all preproduction now, so I can't say to what extent it would take when all's said and done, yet it would to a great extent rely on upon the span of the document you're attempting to download and how quick your system association is.)

Robin will utilize Wi-Fi of course, however you can override this in Settings to work over your bearer system on the off chance that you have information to smolder.

Being in a no man's land - like maybe amid global or plane travel - could mess up the arrangement in case you're urgently attempting to get to an application when you're disconnected from the net for quite a long time or days. It's a periphery case, beyond any doubt, however one that could at present reason hindrance.

Outline and construct: It's all round 


As much as Nextbit prefers to say its Robin looks extraordinary, it's still all that much a level, rectangular cell phone. The white-and-water shading (not exactly robin's egg blue, sad) stands out, with brilliant, marginally rubber treated trim along the top and base edges and blue accent catches. The "midnight" shading, then again, basically vanishes into itself such as a great deal of other dim telephones, put something aside for the brilliant blue force/lock catch.

In the event that there's one outline detail that is all the Robin's own, it's the roundabout theme drawn on the catches and mounts from the volume controls and home catch (don't squeeze, hold) to the more oval force/lock catch and camera streak window.



Like the Sony Xperia Z5 family , the Robin coordinates its unique mark peruser into the force/lock catch as an afterthought, instead of in the home catch underneath the screen.

Flip the Robin over and you'll see a symbol of a cloud, which is stitched in beneath by a short segment of small LED lights. These light up when the telephone is either transferring or downloading. A LED light on the telephone's base edge alarms you to messages. As a rule you see this pointer light on the telephone face, yet Nextbit says they put it here so you can see the sparkle if the telephone's face up or confront down.

In the end, the telephone looks decent, even in preproduction structure, and the round theme includes some unobtrusive touches. It's a decent plan idea.

Programming: Android and somewhat more 


Running on Android - the most recent 6.0 Marshmallow form, the group trusts - the Robin has a gentle custom programming riding on top of Google's working framework for telephones. I saw the product demoed on a Nexus 6 telephone; Nextbit has yet to demonstrate the equipment and programming working in a solitary bundle, however as I said some time recently, it's initial days.

The Robin's application format has a clean, moderate look, and the organization says that it's set symbols where your fingers can best contact them.

A route bar reorders your applications and see which ones have been offloaded to the cloud. You can swipe down on the highest point of an application to stick it, which implies it'll never go logged off, or at the end of the day to unfasten.

Equipment highlights 


Here are Nextbit's equipment arrangements are for the Robin Smartphone:


  • 5.2-inch show with 1,920x1,080-pixel determination 
  • 13-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel front-confronting camera 
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor 
  • 32GB locally available capacity, 100GB online stockpiling 
  • 3GB RAM 
  • 2,680mAh battery with snappy charge abilities 
  • Bluetooth 4.0 LE 
  • Wi-Fi A/B/G/N/AC 
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900 
  • WCDMA 850/900/1800/1900/2100 
  • LTE Bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28 
  • NFC 


Since I just saw an early form, I didn't have the chance to test usefulness, similar to the camera.

Standpoint and cost


This being a Kickstarter crusade, the Robin offers at early on costs, however the one that applies to the a great many people is the $350 sticker price, which works out to about £230 or AU$500. Like a great deal of other "reasonable premium" handsets we're seeing nowadays, similar to the OnePlus 2 , Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 and Motorola Moto X Pure/Play Edition , Nextbit's technique is to undermine customary premium players like Apple and Samsung, whose products offer for effectively twofold the cost.

Crowdfunded gadgets still convey some danger, and Robin could end up going up in smoke - however its odds for achievement are great. At this moment, Nextbit has the financing, a legitimate maker (Foxconn, the same folks who make the iPhone for Apple), and some great qualifications as previous Google and HTC administrators, including HTC's previous lead fashioner.

The inquiry here is one of footing. On the off chance that organizations like Nextbit and Ubik can succeed, will undoubtedly begin seeing numerous more new companies testing the traditions of pricier stalwarts
