I'm interested in moving away from IOS and think this might be a good starter phone for Android.

Customisation-With an open OS, you're in control. You have more freedom and more choices, from the big picture down to the smallest details. Your mobile experience should be as unique as you.
Enhanced Expirences- We believe core experiences like audio, email, and calling can be better. That's why we're reimagining the way we use every day apps and precision-tuning them through the lens of our users.
Privacy & Security- We take security and privacy extremely seriously. Every day we work as a community to make Cyanogen OS more secure.

Xposed framework and adaway are enough to root.

Most people don't bother to change utility providers too, maybe they're right there as well.

Just remembered I asked wileyfox about root a few weeks ago, just found the reply:

"You can root your phone if you wish (it is possible) , however it will make the warranty void (for software related issues ). If you purchase the screen replacement service (will be available later this year) and your screen is broken we can still replace that."

'Buy British'...made in India or China in all likelihood.

Come on. With my all dislike for Apple, they have massive r&d departments, repair units, chain of stores worldwide etc. This company is registered in terraced house ... No offence meant as everyone starts somewhere but surely no comparison to Apple. Most likely its just Chinese rebrand marketed in the UK.

16gb

It was a tongue in cheek comment

It can indeed - based on Cyanogen OS as stock however it's easily rootable and already has support from Cyanogenmod @ version 12.1.

You may not find the need for rooting but personally I just like to know I can chop and change when I get bored...a personal opinion not shared but all but still
cheers OP. Ordered one

Is there any news on CM13 for this handset?

Is this better than the Moto G 3rd gen ?
In particular which has the best camera ?
Will Sky Go work on this?
Rubbish handset, as good as the cheap clones sold in China!

Thanks thread starter.
Why this over the SU6?
Never heard of this can anyone give some info
It's android but runs cyanogen mod! I bought a routed phone once (not tech enough to do myself) and loved it. It ran cyanogen mod I remember that and miui.
Is this better than the p8 lite?
Does this support all 4G uk bands ?
