Engadget Review

With the Swift 2 Plus, you get everything that's good about the Swift 2 -- a new metal body, upgraded processor, fingerprint reader, NFC and general bang for your buck -- plus a little bit more. Sure, you're still looking at the same 5-inch, 720p display, but for an extra £30 you get a better 16-megapixel camera, an extra gig of RAM and double the onboard storage (from 16GB to 32GB). These additions areworth it for the sake of future-proofing your new purchase, and make the Plus arguably the best device in the Swift 2 family despite the higher price tag.

The Swift 2 is a great successor to Wileyfox’s original phone, ticking all the right boxes to qualify it as an all-round winner of an upgrade.

Wileyfox has really stepped things up with the design of the Swift 2 Plus, resulting in a phone that’s as pleasant to use as it is easy on the wallet.

Expert Reviews
An attractive metal smartphone for under £200, but the Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus just isn't as fleet-footed as its budget rivals.

The Swift 2 Plus is a fantastic follow-up phone, building on the solid foundations of the original Swift and giving us an improved camera experience, fingerprint security and Quick Charge support. If you’re on a budget, this is definitely a worthy rival to the Moto G4 and G4 Plus.
