Were you punching something with boxing gloves and no wraps?

Charles Hines says:

I like rectangular phones. I like them flat too on both sides. That way they don’t wobble on a table. I have always liked Sony’s Xperia Z series. They have the highest resolution cameras I have ever seen in an Android device. Sony has also been using their triluminous displays for years and with 5 inch 1080p displays at least as far back as the Xperia Z which is a little bit similar to this phone. I also like Sony for not having used AMOLED displays because they are known to have burn in issues. In my opinion, a high end or flagship phone should not suffer from that no matter how good the black and white contrast is. I see that as a major defect deliberately built-in. Samsung does make nice devices but I would rather get one without an AMOLED display. The iPhones had IPS displays too and that didn’t stop them from becoming popular even though todays phones have displays much better than that of the older iPhones. Besides that, Sony made the camera in the iPhone 4S. It is easy to see why they were a very widely used phone for their cameras (with help from Sony).

I was gonna get it till I saw the headphone jack on the top. who ever thought that is a good idea is dumb.

VisioningHail says:

It looks like a fisher price phone.

Claire MacDougall says:

I bought one of these through the crowdfunding campaign. It’s decent but so flawed in so many ways once you start to use it. Now it just drives me crazy and I can’t wait to get something else…a damned flip phone would be better than this garbage.

john sawyer says:

Shaedyn Harrison says:

TheSquid King says:

PJ O says:

This phone is garbage, pure and simple.
Check out Jerryrig’s Bend test and you’ll see Nextbit Robin snap and crumble with minimal effort.
Also, who would trust the cloud with their personal data? No intelligent person does this.
Who would agree to relying on the cloud (or the computers of strangers) when you can easily buy hundreds of different phones for the same price or less, that give you the option of having your own MicroSD storage onboard; effectively having your own onboard cloud.
Seriously, this phone is a severe fail.

Grumpy Cat says:

What’s the point of the 100gb of cloud storage when you can’t access those files?

hmilles says:

Wait… The Note 4 had the same IMX sensor as the S6 / Edge / Plus and the Note 5; so the Isocell sensor of the Note 4 is about the same quality as the IMX240, which is a great sensor, better than the one in the Moto Z or the G5

Azeze Shobowale says:

ugggh, i was literally brainstorming this idea with my friends, about having a phone that mainly uses the cloud for storage, oh well
