    I'm going to be getting a new phone here soon, and so far none of the releases look interesting and with Samsung going to all curved glass is the nextbit worth buying in 2017 to get me to next year or maybe a little after?

    Depends what you're looking for I just took the plunge and I'm totally excited with a phone so unique and doing its own thing. Being it's supposed to have support until Feb 2018, you should be good For the price (got mine for 149), it's hard to beat, really.

    Thanks I find it interesting also and was considering either it or the Nexus 5x but I'm thinking at 149 I am gonna go after it also I really like the style they went with what color did you end up getting?

    Yeah, they're pretty similar in specs (Robin has 3GB RAM vs Nexus 2GB). I went with mint. It wasn't an easy choice, but the mint just seemed more "robin" like! I also ordered the midnight bruises case, so it's kinda like having the best of both, in a way. Either color is really pretty, though. I just thought mint was more unique.

    OP, if you're choosing between the 5X and the Robin, the Robin is a better performer. The 5X does have the better camera and fingerprint scanner, but it isn't aging as well from what I've heard.

    Robin looks nice...I own the mint one. If you can get the red + black or the red + yellow models (both are hard to find), that's as unique as the mint.

    Thanks for response, I think I have planned on getting Robin to get me through atleast this year. Especially after seeing what Samsung is putting out (I hate curved screens) I have pretty much ruled out every big name this release cycle.

    OP, you want one new, mint or used? I may be willing to part with my used one at a decent price (especially if you are in the US).
