Though Nextbit still exists, the Robin is a discontinued product. Razer purchased the company six months ago and restructured it into an independent division. We haven’t seen what either is working on for the mobile industry, but last year’s phone just received its biggest discount yet.
All retailers are trying to dump any inventory left as the Robin continues aging, and the current price on Amazon is just $117.
Nextbit didn’t create a cheap phone at the time of its release in 2016. The Robin features a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, a 2680mAh battery, a USB-C port, a fingerprint scanner, and front-facing stereo speakers. Those specifications, while behind by today’s standards, are still decent and passable.
If you’re interested, the largest online retailer is selling the phone for less than anywhere else.
When it launched, the Robin was priced at $400. That was way too expensive considering the alternatives and their specifications. Now, at $117, the Robin presents itself as an incredible value. The design is unique and the software is updated. Before calling it a day and leaving the phone behind, Nextbit actually released Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Robin. Not many high-end devices released in 2017 can say they’re on the latest version of Android.
Already have a solid phone? No problem. We recommend getting the Robin as a backup or replacement. Please just keep in mind that Razer/Nextbit is pulling support later this month and will stop honoring warranties. So you’re on your own if your Robin breaks.
The product listing on Amazon says the current deal of the day price disappears at 3:00AM ET on Thursday, and the Nextbit Robin here is eligible for free two-day shipping with a Prime membership.
