Engadget Review

Nextbit's first phone is as ambitious as it is pretty. The phone's way of automatically backing up apps and photos you haven't touched in a while works better than expected, and just might free some people from the dread of full phone anxiety. Too bad, then, that the unremarkable camera and disappointing battery life detract from a thoughtful (and truly cool) experience.

I would never recommend this phone to anyone. Besides having a charging port that's not compatible with any other phone, It also seems to have a mind of its own. It calls people when you don't make the call, the digitizer will randomly open web browsers or click on pages you don't click on. I give this phone a 1 🌟 rating.
