Wileyfox Swift review

 

The Swift is the entry-level smartphone from new British phone maker Wileyfox. Retailing for just over £100, the Swift is a nice-looking phone with features that compare favourably with rivals at this price point. Of particular note are the...

At S21, we very much welcome the arrival of a new player in the smartphone market, especially a British company, and one that has already shown itself to be brave and innovative. We wish Wileyfox every success.

Wileyfox Swift review

 

Wileyfox is a brand you've probably never heard of but that doesn't mean it's not worth looking at its phones. The Swift is its debut and it matches a remarkably solid experience against a downright cheap £129 price tag. Here's our full review.

It's £129 ; Nice screen at 720p ; Dual SIM ; MicroSD card slot ; Good camera for a cheap phone

The notification LED is way too bright

Despite the number of phones that come across our desks in the course of a year, one that's hard to fault on any level is still a rarity. Incredibly, Wileyfox has managed such a feat at its very first attempt. When the biggest flaw you can find on a...

Wileyfox Swift review

 

A budget handset that's anything but

With a refreshing OS, a comfortable design, great performance, nice screen and decent battery life, the WileyFox Swift is a great budget device – but regardless of the low price, it offers a great overall smartphone experience.

Wileyfox Swift review

 

Wileyfox is a new brand on the smartphone scene and is aiming to win the budget market against the likes of the Moto G and Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. Here's our Wileyfox Swift review.

For a brand-new smartphone maker's first effort, we're impressed with the Wileyfox Swift. It's a stylish little handset which offers essentially the same specs as the Moto G for less money. We love the customisation available in Cyanogen OS but...

Wileyfox Swift review

 

An absolute steal of a smartphone

Amazing value ; High-quality camera sensor and lens ; Good screen

Dodgy Auto brightness setting ; The odd glitchy pause ; Camera software needs improving

This mega-value fox is a great cheap phone, and almost a match for the Moto G

Wileyfox Swift

 

The £129 Swift is Britain-based Wileyfox's first ever smartphone. Like the OnePlus 2, Honor 7 and Moto G (2015) it aims to carve a share of the smartphone market by offering features traditionally seen on phones close to twice its price.

Super affordable ; Advanced privacy controls ; Removable battery

So-so battery life ; Heavily skinned Android software ; Inconsistent camera

WileyFox Swift review

 

The Wileyfox Swift has a great design and a more secure, customisable OS, but its screen and camera can't match the competition

Of course, setting the phone's display to maximum brightness will also run down its 2,500mAh battery much faster than leaving it on auto. However, even when we set the screen brightness to 170cd/m2, the Swift showed a severe lack of stamina, only...

Wileyfox Swift Review: Hands-on

 

The Wileyfox Swift, a 5-inch Cyanogen mobile, is a nippy, well-specced Moto G rival from an exciting new British manufacturer.Here's our hands-on review.

Sharp, bright screen ; Feature-packed, customisable OS ; Hand-friendly design

Occasional lag ; Camera beaten by rivals

Wileyfox's Swift and Storm combine budget hardware with uncommon software for £129 or £199 (hands-on)

 

LONDON--A new mobile brand made its world debut today when it introduced two phones to a crowded Android field.

There's a lot to like about these upstart mobiles, and Wileyfox has been smart to ally with Cyanogen, which brings a clutch of features to the phones that you won't find on other Android kit. There's plenty of competition in the realm of cheap phones,...

Wileyfox Swift review: British smartphone has big ambitions

 

Loaded with features and plucky British attitude, the Wileyfox Swift wants to be the new ruler of affordable Android smartphones

Wileyfox has tried hard to pack the Swift with enough tech to keep it feeling snappy and responsive, despite its bargain-basement price. The result? A Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, Adreno 306 GPU, and 2GB RAM, all running on Cyanogen 12.1 (a community...
