PC Advisor
For a brand-new smartphone maker's first effort, we're impressed with the Wileyfox Swift. It's a stylish little handset which offers essentially the same specs as the Moto G for less money.

With a refreshing OS, a comfortable design, great performance, nice screen and decent battery life, the WileyFox Swift is a great budget device – but regardless of the low price, it offers a great overall smartphone experience.

Android Central
The software is slick and bloat free, the hardware is solid and nicely designed and its price is almost too cheap. The budget smartphone arena continues to get more and more interesting and you should dismiss the Wileyfox Swift at your peril.

TrustedReviews
It's a good first attempt from a new entrant to the phone market, but the Wileyfox can't quite match the best budget phones just yet.

Out of the box, Wileyfox has a competent budget smartphone. For a new manufacturer with its first device, this is a smartphone it can be proud of.

Expert Reviews
Wileyfox's Swift is a good first effort, but it's not quite cunning enough to claim Motorola's crown.

It squeezes style out of a rather simplistic design and crams a load of features into a phone that costs very little. On the other hand, Cyanogen OS features aside, there’s nothing here the similarly priced Motorola Moto G 3 doesn’t do better.

The Register
With 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a removable battery, a brace of decent cameras, a good 720p IPS screen and Cyanogen OS running the show, Wileyfox could easily sell the Swift for half as much again as it is actually asking. Absurdly good value for money at £130.

This mega-value fox is a great cheap phone, and almost a match for the Moto G.
