Wileyfox Swift 2 matches a metal body with a low price
European small frame brand Wileyfox has tried to temp us of it's last couple of phones by offering decent looking Android phones at lower prices.
And its latest model, the Swift 2 and Swift 2 Plus.
It's no exception.
Crucially, Wileyfox has done away with the paper feel of the last model and it's replaced it with an all-metal design which certainly makes it feel like a much more premium device when you're grabbing it.
On the front of the phone is a five-inch display.
Now, this does only have a 720 p resolution, which is Definitely on the lower side, and in fact looking close-up you can see individual pixels.
But this does come with a lower price.
The Swift 2 starts at 149 pounds here in the UK and the Swift 2 Plus which has a higher resolution 16 megapixel camera will start at 189 pounds.
You do get some decent features beyond that as well for the lower price, you get USBC charging, there's a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.
And an eight megapixel camera on the front, the Swift 2 certainly isn't the highest end phone around.
But it does come with a much more competitive price, But [UNKNOWN] you can get some great phones at that price now, including phones like the Motorola Moto G four.
Also it's not too easy to get a hold of.
[UNKNOWN] have yet to partner with any other UK networks.
So you can only get it if you go directly to the company and buy the phone out right.
Would definitely like to see more carriers get on board.
Still, if you're after a bargain price Android phone then the Swift two might be the phone to look at.
