This keeps going up and down in price and currently has 30% off. Cheaper than buying the phone on its own, this comes with a case and a free screen replacement card should you have a mishap. Got the wife one recently, great phone. Blurb from Amazon:

16MP primery & 8MP front camera - snap sharp images quickly with its 16MP Samsung camera, Samsung ISOCELL technology and PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus)
Crisp and bright images with a luminosity of 360-400cd/m2, super sensitive glove mode and smudge-resistant oleophobic coating
Experience the power of longer-lasting 2700mAh battery. It comes with Type C to support USB 2.0 and Quick Charge 3.0 for super-fast charging
Tap and pay - use Android Pay or add your bank card to buy your morning latte. Plus with a quick responsive fingerprint sensor it has a great low error rate
Comes with original WileyFox case in blue and screen replacement card

32GB internal storage + 3GB RAM
5" 720p display

looked at this earlier when someone replied to the G4 post, m assuming that's where you found it. some great reviews but also some terrible reviews, especially concerning customer service. my wife had the G4 and with the screen size and full HD, better aftermarket support, I'd rather go with the G4.

Bought one a few weeks back, then been waiting for it to drop back to 150 again for an xmas present. No compass on the G4 which means no to various augmented reality apps.

bought it for Christmas present. Hmmm wouldn't mind keeping it. That's all I'm saying....

I was at Carphone warehouse yesterday and the chap there recommended the Wiley Fox, even though they don't sell it.
#8
Should also point out, the chap from CPW said you can't play Pokemon Go on Wiley Fox. don't know if it's just certain models, but might be a consideration for some.

not true I have one lol

The Wileyfox if you want to use Android Pay. The G4 doesn't have NFC.

Great phone I pad 200 for mine, massive improvement over the Wiley fox swoft

I have the swift (1) and would recommended it to anyone who isn't a brand snob. It does everything I need it to so I have no need to upgrade, but this seems like a great deal :)
#17
I love my Swift, am curious what I'm missing in the updated version.
#18
Just ordered - Had been waiting for it to come down in price again.
Can't beat it for the spec, UK company and no import duties to worry about!
#19
paid £183 a few weeks ago. Great phone. heat.
#20
Thinking about this, I had the new moto g but it was a bit too big.
#21
3GB RAM. It's not in the description, but useful to know!
#22
Might get it... my Xperia Z2 is fine, but it's only got 16GB and no fingerprint sensor.

Camera might put me off... but wanted a smaller (width wise) phone but the X compact is ridiculously expensive.

I have a Moto g3 and the battery is disappointing. Any using both able to give a fair battery comparison?
#24
is Pokemon go okay on this? sadly the only reason I want a better phone is for that!! I assume it has a compas and all that? No specs on GSMarena so just wanted to confirm.

According to this, it has gyroscope and compass: GSMspecs

I like mine very much, having upgraded from HTC M8. I was a bit scared of going from what was when I bought it 'the best phone in the world' to a £150 phone but I have no regrets. Of course there are some things that are not as good as a £6-700 S7 Edge, but they are limited, and certainly not worth the £500 extra. The build is quite high quality, it certainly looks and feels much more expensive. The screen is a little softer, and slower to respond than an S7, but it's not pixelated or annoying (to me, at least). Unless you play the highest end 3d games a lot, you really won't need more than this.

Cold from me. Good phone but unbelievably crap customer service.
Refused to replace a screen because they said it was water damaged (it wasn't) but I would have paid to replace the screen and they simply refused to do so. Wont be buying wiley stuff ever again.

Read the reviews about their customer service:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wileyfox-Swift-Dual-SIM-Free-Smartphone-Black/product-reviews/B014UUQUAO/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_hist_1?filterByStar=one_star&pageNumber=1

Like most products, if it works people think it's the best thing since sliced bread, but if you ever have the misfortune to require it repairing or need customer service, it's terrible.

tempted, this or do I stick with my Nexus 5 ?

Is this dual SIM?

One thing that's stopping me buying is that bottom bezel - they've cunningly reduced all the bezels a ton in the product 'photos' - tut tut

I've just received my Swift 2 Plus and seems like a nice phone.
But I can't get Ambient Display to work. Anyone with the phone got it working?

It's very hit and miss. Works when a message/notification has been received but other than that doesn't work nowhere near as good as on the S7 or the like.

Ahh...just spotted it appear when I got a notification. Pretty useless really. Good phone nevertheless.

acdisplay is a good alternative.

Just got it and setting up but finding issues:
Can't log into onedrive or word - I enter my email and a just get a blue screen or it exits the app. Anyone else having issues?

Also, tried clearing cache and removing app and reinstalling it but issue still there.

Decent spec phone but from what i read Cyanogen Inc is now pretty much dead which more than likely means this phone wont be getting any updates in the future. :(
