Last year’s Amazon Prime Day was a disappointment for most as the deals weren’t all that special. Yet this year might be different as Amazon learned from its mistakes last year and will be offering some pretty sweet specials.
As of right now, 12:01am PST, you can get the full Android 6.0 Nextbit Robin smartphone for just $239 with free shipping included. For a refresher, the Nextbit Robin is the only phone to integrate the cloud with Android to efficiently make use of storage on your phone. It’s actually one of the few phones I decided to purchase with my own money.
$239 fully unlocked is a bargain for this Android 6.0 smartphone. Its specs include a Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of Onboard storage, 100GB online, 5.2″ Gorilla Glass 4 IPS LCD, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and is fully compatible with GSM networks. That means the users on Sprint and Verizon are out of luck with the Robin, but AT&T and T-Mobile customers can just insert their SIM cards and get going with the first cloud Android smartphone. It also pumps out quality sound with the dual front facing speakers, and is secure with the integrated fingerprint ID sensor.
With the cloud integrated into Android OS, your onboard storage is merged with the cloud, so you always have the space you need. Robin seamlessly backs up your apps and photos, intelligently archives the stuff you’re not using, and easily restores items when you need them. Robin is designed to Stand out. It’s simple and distinct in form and function: every port, button, and sensor is thoughtfully placed and easy to use. For example, why have two buttons when one makes more sense? Press the power button, leave your finger there for a split second, and Robin is unlocked. It’s simple, the power button is a fingerprint sensor too.
At $239, I have no qualms with recommending this phone to any user on a GSM network.
Remember you only have 48 hours to take advantage of this sale, so get in on it while you can.
