Good value for the money, this is Xiaomi money for a UK bought and Amazon warranty device plus a 30 quid Echo!

Absolute steal. Ok the CPU isn't amazing but for 108 quid for the phone who can complain, would make an ideal 2nd/work/basic smartphone

Still not understanding your exact issue.

Your phone refused to run the apps? You couldnt download and install them? What, give somekind of a diagnosis before a sweeping statement.
had whatsapp, snapchat working for a year - now all they do is crash the phone and make it completely unusable

Do a full refresh and it will be as good as new. Failing that, send it back for a replacement.. It's not difficult!
the reviews look ok? Really tempted by this. Any good reason why it should be avaioded?
I have and your posts are lacking in any information that gives your posts credibility
what model and what O/S was it and please provide links highlighting your 'woes'

i'm referring to any wileyfox phone that came with the cyanogen os

wileyfox pretty much abandoned all customers with this os

all i'm simply doing is advising my customer experience with purchasing a wileyfox phone

in my opinion you would get the same level as if purchasing a phone from china - so you may as well go with that option instead

everyone can make their own minds up - if its a good deal for you fair enough

my experience with wileyfox is their customer service is a bit **** - but we all have different experiences

So upgrade it out of cyanogen then, all of their devices can be pushed to stock ROMS very easily, they give guides on their sites on how to do it.

When cyanogen dev stopped they switched to stock Android & provided updates. What model do you have & what is the current OS & version?

Depends what you are after budget wise, there was refurbished HTC 10s from Laptops Direct for just under 150 notes very recently;

Did you buy from Amazon? I've had replacements given outside of warranty.
Blimey didn't know Wiley had gone in to admin. Let's hope new owners keep them going

Had the same problem. My swift was an excellent phone - best I'd had - up until the last big update when it went bonkers. Half the stuff on it wouldn't work anymore, and the other half works badly. The camera often won't open - and it was originally one of the best features. The dialing app - trucaller - won't work properly, so I replaced it with a dialing app off Google play. Worked fine up until the emergency and then I find out either the phone or the app won't dial 999.

WileyFox can go stuff for all I care, but I agree, wouldn't touch them with a bargepole now.

Not voting btw.

I thought while we are still in the EU 2 year warranties was a thing? I'm sure I've used that as a reason to argue a faulty product and got it replaced?

If phones ARE covered by that my WF is going straight back to Amazon. Had it for 16 months iirc.
Just had a chat with Amazon re my Wiley fox. Being returned for a refund, bought it a year ago to the day! I will be buying another Wiley Fox. For the price they are you can't argue. It's a budget phone. Has, up until now, always worked for me. Replying/sending to SMS messages, the response goes to everyone on my contacts bar the person I'm replying to. May have been a bit awkward a couple of times! I have had Wiley Fox since the Swift came out. Still use the Swift as a work phone and that has lasted longer than Swift 2.
