Wileyfox Swift 4G LTE, 16GB, 5" Screen, Dual SIM, OS Cyanogen 12.1, £20 CASHBACK

Brand New, Sealed, Offical Wileyfox Partner

Price is £114.99, £20 cashback is claimed as below, making the price £94.99.

The last deal on here for a Wileyfox was £15 more, albeit through Amazon.

Simply buy a Wileyfox Swift and 30 days after your purchase complete the claim form on the Wileyfox website. Terms Apply. *Claim must be made between 30-60 days after purchase. Please retain proof of purchase for claim. Cashback will be credited within 30 days of claim.

It has a 2 year manufacturer's warranty, 2GB RAM, 13MP/5MP cameras, comes network unlocked, dual sim and takes up to a 32GB SD card (some reviews state it can take SDXC so potentially >32GB)

Now £125 and with no cashback

Its a pity as with the 20% off on Ebay deal it would have been £72

Looks like a decent phone for the money. Heat added.
Been eyeing this phone since black Friday. Tempted!!!
£95 for a quad-core processor powered phone with 2GB RAM, warranty(unlike the Chinese imports), 13MP camera and highly Customizable OS, dual sim. Phone gets good reviews both from customers and reviewers. Nice deal
Why can't they just sell it at £95 instead of making us apply for a reimbursement. Either way. Heat.

They get interest on the cashback amount for a month, and some people will mess up and lose the cashback.
Think I'd rather have the SU6 for similar money.
Just swapped my k3 note for this. Glad i did. Lovely phone!
Yes, making you wait 30 days to claim means some will forget. That's what these deals rely on. So they aren't effectively selling it for 95 quid to all and sundry.

Usual marketing ploy. The cashback provides the incentive to buy during the promotional period, whilst also not devaluing the residual cost (and so the product technically retains a higher future resale value).

Yep, the SU6 has a better screen, bigger battery and faster processor.

The Wileyfox Swift probably has the better camera and slightly better build quality, but that's it.

The first thing I thought when I clicked on this thread was "I wonder when the usual SU6 comments will start". I wasn't disappointed...zzz...
What is a proof of purchase when buying off eBay?

The email?
you get £20 cashback if you from amazon as well, but the buying price is a lot more £128
Would this be better than my LG G2... it has slowed right down of late and the battery is dying.

But it is a better phone, though...
Can anyone confirm that the retailer qualifies for the discount? I literally ordered this phone from Amazon this morning so am wondering if I should cancel and order from here. My concern is that the ebay store isn't listed on the Qualifying Retailers on the wilefox page despite it listing another ebay store. wileyfoxpromotions.com/gb/…ers

Also, for what it's worth. You can get screen replacement cover for 1 year for £9.99. This is only offered once when registering the product and you can't decide to purchase it later...just a heads up for anyone thinking of going for it.
The eBay shop is foniacs but if you go on the wileyfox website to check qualifying retailers it says phoniacs eBay store.

Ah ok, thanks. Just to be sure, I called them up. They said that's fine, the retailer doesn't matter so long as it's a brand new unused phone.

The Swift also runs Cyanogen OS and is likely to recieve more update support than the SU6.

A good chance? I've never seen anyone get Amazon to price-match eBay before?

NOT EVERYONE WANTS A 5.5" PHONE !! apples and pears



I agree. Doesn't it become a phablet when the screen is 5.5" or bigger?
Nice
I have this phone,
where to start, for the money it's well with it. IMO the most stylish cover on the market. I feel that I can do everything my z3 compact could do but faster.!!! with no junk that's default installed seems so fast.

Nah, more like apples and slightly bigger apples
Hmm this or a P8 lite?
Mine has been great since October when bought, but last couple of weeks has crashed when calls come in and had to be rebooted a couple of times. Shame as I've raved about it up until this point.
Nobull

Hmm this or a P8 lite?



I would recommend this over the P8 Lite. The screen is better quality (brightness, contrast, colour) on the Swift, and it also has better battery life. The software is also very different, the Huawei runs the EMUI skin over android, which is often criticised for being unintuitive and buggy, whereas Cyanogen OS on the swift is much closer to stock android.
Hello, I am the deal owner for this activity and I just wanted to clarify the process around claiming. The purchaser needs to provide proof of purchase to Wileyfox to claim the £20 cash back; email confirmation will suffice. Foniacs is a web store front for brightstar.com who are the worlds largest mobile phone distributor, all of the stock we sell is genuine UK, brand new and supported by the manufacturer. Hope you don't mind me posting.
does this support 4g band 20 for 02 4g services?

It's a relevant comment. People will say it.

​Because it's more powerful



You're completely ignoring the point that coldo makes though - yes it's more powerful (everyone knows this but people insist on posting it anyway) but it's also a very large, cheap looking handset. For anyone looking for a smaller, more portable phone the SU6 isn't a viable alternative.

Quick restore and a new battery will have you back on track. The spec is the same!
2 of these Swift phones in my household. The Wileyfox Swift is a great wee cheap phone. Running Cyanogen OS.....Which is a huge positive for me.
