Wileyfox Swift review


A budget handset that's anything but

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.

Wileyfox Swift 2X review: Now with Alexa support


Wileyfox's Swift 2X is a decent Swift 2 successor, but it's still no Moto G4

Dazzlingly bright Full HD screen ; Elegant design

Performance outclassed by its rivals ; Disappointing rear camera

For around £160 you still get best-in-class performances with the Moto G4. Its camera is still the best for the price, performance is miles better than the Swift 2X and its 13-hour battery life still makes an appearance in our best battery-life...

WileyFox Swift review


The Wileyfox Swift has a great design and a more secure, customisable OS, but its screen and camera can't match the competition

The Swift certainly has a lot of attractive features, not least its classy design, customisable OS and 16GB of storage (around 12GB of which is available to the user). However, its screen and battery life are decidedly lacklustre compared to both the...

Wileyfox Swift review


Wileyfox is a new brand on the smartphone scene and is aiming to win the budget market against the likes of the Moto G and Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. Here's our Wileyfox Swift review.

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. We love the customisation available in Cyanogen OS but...

Wileyfox Swift review


An absolute steal of a smartphone

Amazing value ; High-quality camera sensor and lens ; Good screen

Dodgy Auto brightness setting ; The odd glitchy pause ; Camera software needs improving

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

Wileyfox Swift


The £129 Swift is Britain-based Wileyfox's first ever smartphone. Like the OnePlus 2, Honor 7 and Moto G (2015) it aims to carve a share of the smartphone market by offering features traditionally seen on phones close to twice its price.

Super affordable ; Advanced privacy controls ; Removable battery

So-so battery life ; Heavily skinned Android software ; Inconsistent camera

Wileyfox's Swift and Storm combine budget hardware with uncommon software for £129 or £199 (hands-on)


Powered by the customisable Cyanogen software, the first handsets from the mobile industry's newest brand will go on sale by October in Europe.

Wileyfox Swift Review: Hands-on


The Wileyfox Swift, a 5-inch Cyanogen mobile, is a nippy, well-specced Moto G rival from an exciting new British manufacturer.Here's our hands-on review.

Sharp, bright screen ; Feature-packed, customisable OS ; Hand-friendly design

Occasional lag ; Camera beaten by rivals

Wileyfox Swift review: The British smartphone hoping for a revolution


Loaded with features and plucky British attitude, the Wileyfox Swift wants to be the new ruler of affordable Android smartphones

Wileyfox’s ambitions echo those of the hugely successful Chinese startup OnePlus. While OnePlus has aimed to take on the premium flagship market, and Wileyfox is targeting the mid-range and budget bracket, it’s clear that there are more than a couple...

Wileyfox is a brand that tries to offer decent technology at an affordable price. The Wileyfox Swift is a 5-inch Android mobile – it felt speedy and responsive during our testing, but does the battery life go the distance? We put it through its paces...
