I was just about to buy the honor x5 which has come up on HUKD, but now have seen this. Any advise on which one I should get? Many thanks (HUKD has saved me lots on purchases over the years, keep up the good work).
Depends on what you want - the honor x5 covers more GSM bands so might be better in america etc and has a fingerprint scanner - I have this phone and i really like it.

I cant personally speak for this phone, but it gets good reviews, I paid about £130 for the Honor X5 so think thats better for me than this,but YMMV
How does it compare to Huawei P8 Lite?
exceptional phone at this price point. puts Samsung etc to shame.
Advice please - can this have 2 sims installed plus an sd card or does the second SIM slot share with sd? Thanks in advance.
2nd sim slot doubles as the micro sd slot, confirmed.
Damn just bought the su6 would have prefrrred this for screen size

The Swift has dual SIM and SD card support. It's the Storm where the 2nd SIM doubles as the SD slot.

​Yes it can. There are two sim slots and a microsd slot. http://www.ebuyer.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Opening_Wileyfox_swift.jpg
I bought this phone when it was at its previous low price a few months ago. Loved it for a couple of weeks until my clash of clans and boom beach apps started taking 5 mins to load for some reason, no game updates, reinstalled them, couldn't solve it so returned for a refund. Was sorry to have to give it up, cyanogen is fantastic

Have the Motorola Moto X (another Hukd deal) now and although it isn't as customisable in terms of operating system, battery is rather average (turbocharging helps with that) and the camera is average (I don't take many pics anyway) I'm happy with it.
Bought one from amazon marketplace couple of weeks ago. Great phone for the price, was a replacement for my lost oppo 7a and apart from a smaller screen size haven't really noticed much difference in performance, and speakers on phone give quite a good sound , much better than the oppo or previous Sammy's I've owned. Only thing still baffling me is how to set storage for mp3's etc to sd card rather than phone storage, if anyone has answer I'd be gratefull. Can also confirm it works with 2 separate sim card + separate sd card at same time, 3 separate slots on phone. Couple of links to previous deals on here for opinions:

Can you double tap to wake on this phone?

I'm not getting into a spec war. And I'm not denying the great spec of the Ultra 6--but it had a cheap feel to me and the phone itself was a God dam monster. This is getting my £100 quid.
Smart ultra 6 same price, miles better.
I bought one of these last month and ended up sending it back unfortunately. Couldn't get a data signal when I wasnt connected to WiFi. sound quality making and receiving calls was just terrible. charging slot for cable would only fit the charger supplied, any other would fall out, (slot too deep?) was really disappointed as everything else about the phone was fantastic.
I need a dual sim for work, as my work mobile doesnt have any data, samsung j5 was a contender, huawei honor 5x and this ticks the boxes also, or is there somthing else due out,

No, weirdly only double tap to sleep.
Perfectly timed! Middle son's original Moto G is struggling where it's memory constrained, but he didn't want to go as physically big as the Smart Ultra 6 that I and my wife have. This is spot on in terms of size, expandability, and price, and the camera isn't bad either!

got for this at Christmas for tech son dual some can customs security, v good highly recomended
son has dual sim. were and tpo with 32sd card all working in harmony
ee and tpo even
Comparing a 5in phone to a 5.5in is crazy. It's quite a leap. This should be compared to motoG etc.
has this got NFC?
People comparing this phone to a Samsung or Huawei are insane. A cheap phone doesn't make it a great phone. What about call quality, screen, camera, GPS, Wifi etc?

​Having owned both..... I'd say spend the extra on the Honor 5x. Not that the wileyfox is a bad phone, it's not. But the smaller 410 processor has its limitations. If your simply looking for a cheap phone to Facebook, what's app, call with, the wileyfox will be good. But if your a play games or use you phone a bit more intensively..... Plum for the Honor. But put nova launcher on it.
Better half has one and she loves it. Seems decent for the price. She did say the camera isn't the best but considering how cheap it is she is happy.

I would point out that depending on what USB cable you use it's very easy for them to slip out when plugged in. There doesn't seem to be any resistance to hold most USB cables in place and the included cable is very short. Became a real pain for her when she plugged it in at night to find the cable had slipped out in the morning so didn’t have a full charge.

But thanks to the advice of someone on here we discovered that the white USB cables from Poundland seem to stay in well without falling out.

​I could not find out how to ether. So I pulled all my music off it on to the pc. Then put it on to the sd card via the pc. Not ideal, but does free up space

Thanks, done that also but it's annoying for downloads straight to phone,can't even seem to move them after downloading ( no option)
Bought one for a birthday present - I'm sure this will be better than the MotoG (1GB RAM and limited storage..)

Yes it has all of those.....

Okay thanks. Weird. Well this is a deal breaker for me. The last three phones i've own have developed problems with the power button recessing into the phone so need one with double tap.
Anyone recommend this over the Huawei P8 Lite?
Do you have more information / what is Cyanogen 12.1
Thanks.

Do you have more information / what is Cyanogen 12.1 Thanks.



It's basically a more customisable version of Android. It's running 5.1 at the moment but an upgrade to 6 is due at some point.
have one of these. great phone for the money.
