Found 20th Jul 2017
Was looking through the deals on here, was disappointed to see this same deal in midnight had gone up again but found it in gold when I searched Amazon again so thought I'd post it. Hope that's ok!

12 month screen replacement card
White premium case
3 GB RAM, 32 GB on-board storage, expandable memory up to 128 GB
16 MP Samsung sensor primary camera and 8 MP selfie camera
Android pay ready, fingerprint reader, quick charge 3.0, USB type C connection

**UPDATE**
Sorry to torpedo my post but I received my phone yesterday and was initially pleased for about half an hour until I installed the first update at which point the phone ceased charging. It is now dead and going back to Amazon for a refund. I guess I'll leave this up so people can make up their own minds? but personally very disappointed.

Any feedback on these phones. Am looking to upgrade from Z3 compact. Looking to spend 200 or below. Tempted as good reviews. Looking also at the motor g5 plus.. Hmm
I've got this phone and it's reasonable for the money. Main issue is that the screen is very brittle and the replacement is worthless because customer services won't respond! It's been 4 weeks of emails, tweets, calls and contact forms without any kind of response.

Quick charge is good though.

Hi, if you bought it from Amazon just contact them. Their customer service is a lot better.
I've got this phone and it ticks all the right boxes. NFC, compass, finger print sensor, decent ram and storage.

Negatives
Screen only 720p and a little flat. Battery life not brilliant and can't get a decent glass screen protector.

For the price it's a good phone but not great.
Should be cheaper by now

Given their CS seems so poor/non-existent, have you considered a Chinese import? Certainly the Xiaomi Mi5/zuk z2 pro would be much more of an upgrade than the Wileyfox!
what about the camera, any good? I've got a chinese phone, good value, no complain but the camera on these phones is practically useless...want to upgrade to phone with a good camera up to £200, is there a middle ground?
Excellent phones I have the swift 2 and does everything I need. (I've always come from having the latest android/iOS devices as abit of a techy). I did have to deal with customer services when I broke the screen but they sent me a brand new phone out. Not bad when screen replacement card was free and it's my fault for breaking it!

My parents have the G5 (I am 90% sure it was the plus) and have to say it looks and feels very nice. Only later I seen some article saying it lacks a compass, not a biggie for them but apparently a little annoying if you want use the navigation. (Only mentioning as you may want to do a bit of research on this before buying). I'm still considering one for my wife when her birthday comess around, to replace an aging S4.

I might try that but I'm not sure what they can do. I broke my own screen so they're not going to give me a replacement phone and they can't replace the screen for me.

Nokia 6 android launching early August just over £200,. Reasonable camera reviews.

Been keeping an eye on the Nokia 6. And if you look for "Jerry Rig Everything" on youtube i'm sure he did one of his tests on it and it's built like a brick ___ house.
My friends phone is having issues wileyfox has been absolute rubbish when it comes to customer services.

Redmi Note 4 (Global) is surely a step up from this? You can get the 4GB/64GB, SD625 global version (band 20) for just over 130 quid. No warranty but from comments I've seen regarding Wileyfox's CS probably not a biggie in comparison...
I would recommend the Huawei P8 lite 2017 for a sub £200 phone. Lots of good features including NFC and great build quality.

I am leaning towards possibly these Chinese brands. Which one would you recommend under 200 quid. Always had Sony, Samsung HTC. How do hold up against the big boys reference updates, build quality etc.

Yes I thought the G5 plus had a compass. Anyway think may hold off for little. As I think Motorola may be introducing some new phones G range. Very soon.
Just bought this off Amazon so far day of usage sluggish while installing apps seems better now. Fingerprint reader doesn't seem very accurate seems to be sluggish to turn screen on sometimes. Also have a weird problem of ghost touches uncontrollable screen while case is on I'm going to have to look into that one. I will give it a week but other than niggle seems good.....oh but major flaw is no 5ghz wifi?!??!!? Wtf!
Quick update sluggishness Al but disappeared weird ghost touch thing comes and goes but only when charging... strange. Overall pretty good battery life acceptable screen ok 32gb memory plenty at the moment camera not very good and missing 5ghz wifi annoying..

Would someone be able to take a look at the info on a photo you have taken, using Google photos to view it. On mine it says f2.2 aperture not f2.0. anyone else the same?
