Loved the comment about the LG G2. Finally had to relegate my much beloved G2 to beside alarm clock duries when the touchscreen deadspots grew too large to live with. Its replacement? Why, Nextbit Robin, of course. Even bought one for my daughter when the price hit $149. Minty 808 is just fine by me.
The phone is showing its age with an 808? Crazy. I have a midrange Snapdragon, 6xx, from 2 years ago. Still snappy.

The Robin will be faster.
Either one of these phones for under $150 is a great deal.
I wish LG made a G6 mini and made it just like the G2 with fingerprint scanner in the home button and microSD in the SIM tray.

The phone just got even more worth it.
I wonder if there will be a Nextbit Robin 2, as the Nextbit Robin is definitely one of my favorite smartphones :)

Cheap prices = cheap products. I learned my lesson a few years ago. Invest in high quality products, find them on sale or in auction websites, and you will be much happier with those longer lasting products.
Anyways, I wanted to say that Snapdragon 808 (even 800), doesn't matter how old it is, it is still all you really need in a phone. Phones are very fast now.
Please don't waste your money. I am on my third one. It has major flaws. The charging cable is poorly made. Everything is extra.. all you get in the box is a phone and a $2 charging cable that barely works 90% of the time.
1. USB cable dead or bad
2. Gets stuck at boot loader constantly
3. Text messages come across as gibberish
4. Battery life super bad
5. Overheats at the littlest usage
6. Gets super hot when charged
7. Fingerprint reader doesnt read my fingerprint half the time
8. Uses data instead of Wi-Fi to back up to Nextbit cloud
9. Wont connect to 5ghz only 2.4ghz Wi-F
