Found 25th Jun 2017
Snapdragon 808 processor, 3gb ram, 32gb of storage, 13mp camera and a free 100gb of cloud storage!
This will perfrom at least as well as most mid-range smartphones out there (These were pretty much flagship specs on launch just over a year ago-ish)
It's at an all time low, just received 7.1 Nougat and IMO a steal at this price.

A solid phone that's pretty cheap but please don't make claims about, "These were pretty much flagship specs on launch just over a year ago-ish" - those specs were pretty good, but in 2015. The other specs are solid but the battery is small, bezels are huge and among other things, there's no usb OTG.
good spec, but company has been bought out so it's basically a dead phone. don't know if the online storage will disappear soon, so no memory card option is a worry

The bezels don’t look huge to me. What are you comparing it against?

New trend for 2017 - obsession with bezels.
I have a G6 arriving from HK tomorrow and an S5 arriving from eBay the day after. This is right up my street however. Could be a 3 phone week.

​You will be pleased with your P2 when you start using it! I came from HTCs so was wary but it does everything I need to, it's snappy great screen and I get about three days battery on a charge. I'm not a light user either, my old HTC had to be charged twice a day.

The P2 is loads better than this - the camera on this is probably slightly better but the P2 beats it on every other front.

​P2 is £200 though, yes?
Reading reviews on googleplay for nexbit camera, it seems that they mucked up the app on the update to nougat. People mentioning that the camera is worse than before, even in other apps.

Are there any mods that work around this?

Indeed, the words 'solid' and 'Nextbit Robin' do not go hand in hand, it's a terribly weak phone in fact. While many won't bend their phone like this video, it does show how very weak it is compared to most others. goto 2mins 34

I've receieved mine today. Four updates to get to Nougat!!! It doesn't bend. That video may show that it's not as durable as others, but it seems ok. My previous phones have all been glass backed so this seems more durable!
Well worth the money - lightly skinned, performance snappy, multitasking excellent due to the 3gb RAM and lightweight version of Android. My first experience of a fingerprint reader and it seem to open quickly and accurately. The camera is OK, RAW support / Camera2api implemented. Very happy with my purchase for 119 - for this money it's an excellent buy. It's certainly not as good as an iPhone SE in the build stakes, or the camera but performance wise it's great. But, it's not SE money either ;-)

​Is there any camera shutter lag after the updates?

What's the sound like from the speakers? Are they loud? I bought a yotaphone after deals on this site and it runs great but the speakers aren't loud enough for YouTubein' while washing up ☺
32gb rom. this is better than willies fox (16gb).
This has now increased to £124.99 for both models
