San Francisco based Nextbit today announced that its 'Ember' colored Robin smartphone is available for sale on Flipkart. ‘Ember’ is the third variant after Mint and Midnight color. The limited edition Ember sports a black rear panel with bright red-colored end caps. Ember is produced in a limited quantity, and is available on Flipkart with a price tag of Rs. 19,999.
My First impression is "Wow" looking at the phone. It has unique design and color compared to other options available in market. It offers 32GB of onboard storage and 100GB of free cloud storage.
5.2 inch HD IPS LCD display of 1080x1920 pixels resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port,13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.
The down size: When there are most phone with dual sim available in market, Nextbit Robin supports only Single Sim with connectivity options of the phone include GSM, HSPA and LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac. One another mistake is when most Indian android users expect one feature the most, is missing "The FM Radio"
Nextbit Robin looks amazing with its colours and a unique design, still the price is on the higher side, The 100GB free cloud storage is great, but how many users require that amount of cloud storage is questionable.
Still Nextbit Robin is eye-catching and I hope their next version will have more battery life, FM Radio and Dual Sim. I would then definitely would like to buy one for myself.
