I voted hot as I love my swift 2 (not the better plus, this one), however I'd buy with caution. The promised move from the now defunct cyanogen os hasn't happened. It was promised by the end of Q1, they are quiet as to the reasons why and when/if an upgrade will now happen. Furthermore the CEO and CMO recently left the company so read into that as you want.

agreed I have been asked to source a sub 200 squid phone and the os issue has made me rule this phone out
price drop appears genuine

Was googling to see when this might happen, and according to one reddit user they got the update today. Although they have two phones and only one updated?!?

Looking on twitter, seems to be updates rolling out. Not for me or my daughter though :-(


As to why this is cold? Cheapest the phone has ever been and you're getting a lot of phone for 150 quid especially if N has finally arrived.

It's probably because the other colours are £10 cheaper. Although I'm not as keen on the other colours!

Really £150 is as much as I want to pay, still not sure on the difference between this at 3GB/32GB and the G5 at 2GB/16GB (or an extra £40 for the Amazon 3GB model).

Constantly running out of system space on my old S4 at 16GB makes me think 32GB might be a good call.

Will this run 2, 3G sims on standby at the same time?

Nextbit robin is 149.99 on amazon updated to nougat now.

I bought one of these for a friend and had a few days to play with it before I handed it over. Really impressed with the build quality and the fingerprint reader. The OS was practically stock and the CPU and 3GB Ram seemed to handle everything with ease. Some will want a phone with a better screen and camera but for the £, its hard to complain. If you want better, spend more £.

HOT.

Yes the Nextbit is a very good spec phone for £150, only downside is the poor battery life.

Wileyfox confirmed on twitter to me that N is being rolled out to the Swift range now.

think the swift 2 plus has better camera but for more £. only 294 ppi but moto g5 has over 400ppi. I cannot decide...

No, I researched the same question a few weeks ago.
That's why I'm waiting on the nokia 5 which looking to the publicly photos is running 4G on both sims.

Yet again, completely bizarre why such a hot deal is voted cold. I’d looked into the Swift 2 and Swift 2 Plus and found them to be excellent value and well reviewed. If I hadn’t already bought my Moto G4 I’d go for this (and definitely over the 2GB Moto G5 that is attracting large amounts of heat). Great price for this phone.

..........yet the thread for the pink and gold versions is running at +320 hot - must be that £10 reduction compared to midnight blue !?
hotukdeals.com/dea…000

I've gone with this one. I had the other one in the basket, but I really don't want a white and gold phone!

Being able to have 2 sims and an SD nearly made me go for the G5, but the extra 16GB storage will help. I always have so many photos it takes forever to scroll through them all, and I don't think I really need about 5,000 songs on my phone!

Ah, I didn't see that other post. Yeah, that might explain why people are voting this one cold.
