Engadget Review

Compared to the first Swift, the Swift 2 looks and feels like an entirely different beast thanks to the upgrade from plastic to an all-metal body. The newer and faster processor is welcome, but the addition of a fingerprint sensor for security, and NFC chip for mobile payments, are among the biggest improvements. Some things haven't changed, though. You still get 16GB of onboard storage, an inconsistent 13-megapixel camera and a 5-inch 720p display similar to that of the original Swift. Nevertheless, the new Swift 2 represents almost as good value for money as its predecessor.
