Engadget Review

Of Wileyfox's two inaugural smartphones, the £129 Swift is easily the star of the show. It doesn't excel in any one particular area, and it's not without its shortcomings, such as a borderline faulty micro-USB port and mediocre camera performance. The Swift is neat and distinctive in its design, however, with a bright display, more than adequate performance and a satisfactory battery life. Simply put, you're getting a lot for your money, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better smartphone for the same price.

Pros
  • Generic design made charming
  • Easilycustomisable software
  • Bright display
  • Extremely affordable
Cons
  • Loose micro-USB port
  • Average camera
