Hello from Dubai, Vietnam

Good Afternoon from Dubai,

 

It was nearly a year since I order my Robin.

Why my hello is from Dubai, Vietnam? I'm going to tell you this "travel".

 

At the time I order my Robin, Nexbit didnot ship to many coutries as now. India market was not opened yet, even other Asia countries.

I'm from Vietnam, working in Dubai.

The only way I could order Robin that time, was via a friend in California, and another friend who will travel to Dubai 2 weeks after that can bring it to me, so hoped that I could hand on my Robin. Unfortunately shipping the phone to Cali took 3 weeks. Smiley Sad

Then what? My friend tried to send the phone to Dubai by shipping services, and to send the phone to Dubai. It was not that easy, some paper work with siginification required from state eg. which kind of phone is this, feature, any ham, break any privacy rules. !! (New experience)

And then? After 1 month, I though to return the phone, contacted Nextbit to ask for returning. But after get the reply email, I changed my mind and decided to keep the phone. Smiley Very Happy

Then my friend send it to Vietnam. 80$ cost Smiley Tongue

Then the Robin came to Dubai 2 weeks later, via a friend.

Wow It took me 2 month to have the phone on hand.

Love Robin till now.

Smiley Happy

Re: Hello from Dubai, Vietnam

Thank guys. Smiley Happy

@lukas First is the design. Make me crazy with it, mine is midnight, people asking me about this when they see that makes me feel great.

Second is the stock ROM and quick update from google (as Nexus).

And easy to unlock, with good support + community.

Then last, cloud. I though cloud feature is not really important to me, but since last time after I did update OTA with rooted Robin and got boot loop issue, have to flash all again, with google app backup, robin app backup, I finished set up back my phone in 1 hours. Easy. Smiley Happy

Re: Hello from Dubai, Vietnam

Welcome to the community @mthanhtran! Now that's dedication! I'm glad everything eventually worked out. I switched to the Robin for the same reasons: uniqueness, open boot loader, and a great community. Glad to have a new Rebel on board!

Re: Hello from Dubai, Vietnam

Pretty awesome tale of how you got your phone!

 

I have visited Dubai before and can say that place blows my mind.  A massive city with so much money in the middle of a desert.  I hope to be back one day!
