Anyone got a WileyFox Swift 2 Plus?

£0.00 @ Wileyfox
This phone seems to have everything I want in a phone... but Amazon reviews are so offputting. Has anyone got this handset and confirm if it's any good? Thanks Read More

I'm on the brink of getting the G5 Plus... but £224? On a mobile? Not sure.

I'm holding out to see what the nokia 5 and 6 are like.

As an aside, I just want to state what a rip-off it is to UK consumers that the Moto G5 Plus is being sold at motorola.co.uk for £249.99 yet only $229.99 (£183.67) at motorola.com.

Don't buy it. Look at the Lenovo P2

WileyFox Swift 2 Plus ..... best phone I have had since my original Moto X

I do hear the Lenovo P2 is very good but for my a 5.5" phone is just too big - 5" display is the sweet spot !

Great battery life - full day without any charges

and now on Nougat 7.1.1 - updated over air from wileyfox

The P2 is actually only 1cm taller and less than half a centimeter wider tjam the swift 2.
Unlikely you'd even feel the difference in your hand.

It's also actually slightly thinner (god knows where that massive battery hides) and only weighs 20g more than the swift 2......

P2 spec blows the swift 2 away for not much more cash really

I'm genuinely seeing 3 days heavy use from the battery, as a comparison the Galaxy Note 4 it replaced used to give me just over 1 day battery life.

so tempted with the fox but seeing one in action before I get one. I see they have 2 year warranty aswell. A phone must have gorilla glass, 32gb internal and minimum 3gb of ram. is only 720p a problem with this phone.

order one from CEX - I have never had a problem with returning an unwanted item to a store wthin the first 7 days

for me the 720p screen is just fine ....

I had the Voda SU6 before this and the screen on teh swift is better IMHO - and the SU6 was just a tad to big for one handed operation, and just too big for comfortable pocket feel !!!

and the finger print sensor on the back of the Swift works just great - near 100% recognition frst time

camera is pretty good - better than SU6

not iPhone class or high end Nokia / Sony but perfectly adequate - has HDR Croma flash pano options etc

Not sure. I doubt they would offer an international shipping option from the US to the UK when this undermines their UK site. Give it a try though. Obviously, they won't honour any warranty claims given that it was designed for the US market.
