No one is forcing you....
looks like a decent phone, the only thing i can see it dose not have removable battery, also not sure if it has led notification?

I know no ones forcing me but i just cant imagine who would go for this if they knew they could get the P8 lite 2017 for 20 pounds less? considering that is a better phone and will have a better resell value unlike this.

USB C, arguably better camera, 32gb storage, size(?).

Just a few off the top of my head. There's definitely a market for it. 16gb is what's put me off the p8 lite myself.

Edit: Generic Qualcomm quick charging over Huawei's propietry charging might also be a key selling point for some.

Well done for bringing some balance to the argument Slayermatt.

I bought one of these second hand for a friend for £100 and he's been very happy. Personally, I'd pick the P8 Lite 2018 as the screen on the Swift isn't very bright, the viewing angles aren't great and its only HD. The screen is a real step up on the P8 and Huawei are amazing with battery life.

I mean I'd personally look at the P10 lite for a little more which has a slightly nicer feature set for around £179 most places, even if I'm sacrificing Qualcomm quick charging and USB C. I've heard mixed things about Wileyfox phones but then the same can be said about most phone manufacturers. Reviews for this model from most websites seem to be quite favourable of it.
Great phone. I have one and it works really well, had a Xiaomi from Chinese internet retailer but so much prefer this phone!

I am looking to get this phone, how would you rate the gps on this phone and also does the led notifications work ok as someone said they messed up on recent update? also is the camera decent?

GPS perfect.

LED works fine.

Camera is not as good as my wife's Sam S6 but it's decent enough.

Yes, I'd also be considering paying more for the P10 Lite also. Its all about that 4GB RAM.

question is, is it really worth the extra money and ram?

P8 seems have very weak screen, lots report easily cracks, just heads up for those considering P8

In the short term the RAM makes the phone faster and better at multitasking. In the longer term, manufacturers use low RAM or other specs as a reason not to update there OS to the latest version. For only £30 more than this Swift, it's a no brainer for me.
Great phone, I have had issues charging it once it had fully drained, not sure if this was charger / cable related but have always managed to get it to charge again, few other ppl have had the same issue aswell.

Nice thing about wileyfox is they provide frequent enough security updates.

there are some used like new condition for £112, whats the return/warranty on warehouse deals?
Great phone. Made in the UK too. So expect quality craftsmanship and honesty, not the update forcing brand names.

"Made in the UK" hahaha like the KAZAM, JCB, CAT and Kodak Ektra, right?
Wileyfox is a UK firm who get their phones manufactured in China. Apple get their phones manufactured in China as well so nothing wrong with that. We have the base non plus version in the house and it does a decent job and still works well after a year.. The best thing about the phone is the Wileyfox are really good with security updates as they use an unmodified version of Android, unlike Huawei and EMUI. You won't be disappointed with this phone if you go for it.
Not voting but just a sobering note here. I'm on the WF Swift 1. When the OS was updated I lost the original phone dialling app which was replaced by WF with Truecaller. I couldn't get used to it, didn't like it, it didn't work for me etc, so I replaced it with one off the playstore. We recently had an emergency where 999 was needed urgently. After SIX attempts I found that the app wouldn't call 999 - simply didn't seem to recognise it. Not sure who's fault all that is but I won't be buying WF again.
