How has this not been invented yet?!

This is the Robin. It’s a new Android phone that has smart software, so you don’t have to worry about running out of space.

This is the Robin. It's a new Android phone that has smart software, so you don't have to worry about running out of space.

Robin is made by a company you've never heard of called Nextbit. I know what you're thinking: Another Android device? Aren't there already thousands of those? (24,000, actually.)

But Robin is different for two reasons: it's really freaking pretty and it runs a unique version of Android that analyzes how you use your phone, then sends stuff you don't need (like an app you haven't opened in months or a photo from a week ago) to ~the cloud~ (AKA a giant building full of servers).

I had the chance to try out Robin for a week, and was immediately hooked.

I was sold before I even turned on the device. The mint version's hardware is playfully colorful. I'd describe its aesthetic as “minimalist kawaii.” ¯_(ツ)_/¯

It's sleek. It's eye-catching. Its material is soft to the touch. It's just… really attractive, which is not an adjective I typically use to describe Android devices.

The phone is definitely a conversation piece. This morning, while I was waiting in line for coffee: “Cute case. What is it?” “No, it's a phone, actually.” “No way, really?” (Yes, way.)

The phone’s software is awesome, too. When Robin is plugged into a charger and connected to Wi-Fi, it’ll backup apps and photos automatically so you never have to delete content to make room for more.

A row of blinking lights on the back of the phone will let you know that there's a sync in progress.
