The Nextbit Robin started its life as a Kickstarter project and on the surface it looks like any other Android phone, albeit one with a pretty pleasing design. However, both the Android operating system and the Nextbit hardware have been optimized to make the Robin the first real cloud phone. When the device is connected to Wi-Fi and plugged into the charger it automatically backs up apps and photos to the cloud. When you start running out of local storage space on the device, files and apps you haven't used in a while are archived. This means they are deleted from the device but grayed out app icons and image thumbnails are still visible. When you tap on an archived app or photo it is downloaded from the cloud, so you can access it again from your device.
The camera module is pretty standard fare though. A 13MP sensor with phase detection AF is paired with an F2.2 aperture and dual-tone flash. The Robin is cpaable of recording 4K video and at a front you'll find a 5MP selfie-shooter.
