Nextbit Robin update – camera fixes, improved volume controls and more

nextbit robin unboxing aa (12 of 18)

The Nextbit Robin may not be the most famous smartphone around, but it is definitely among the most unique. It sports a design unlike any other, good specs and a software experience no Android manufacturer has experimented with. The Nextbit Robin is known for its “cloud first” approach. It intelligently takes all the files you don’t use often and stores them in the cloud.

But enough about the phone; you can learn more about it by checking out our review. Today we are here to talk about a new update that has started hitting Nextbit Robin handsets around the globe. The update doesn’t bring too much to the table, but they are certainly improvements people have been asking for. Here is what they have to offer:

Speaker volume

We have totally revamped the speaker volume after the audio enhancements last month. The minimum volume is much softer and as you increase the volume, it follows a nice linear progression.


Primarily a fix to improve stability when sharing pictures to the Line app.

Custom ringtones

We’ve included the custom ringtones – Patricia by Lauren Loh Sung and Breeze by Giraffage – in the ringtone pack. You no longer need to sideload them.


As a bonus, the Android Security Patch is now updated to June 1.

The most exciting improvements are definitely the camera and speaker volume ones. I am not sure how many of you will be grabbing those ringtones, but they are also there for the taking.
