At the end of last year WileyFox launched two new SmartPhones, at the event it was let slip that another was soon to be launched, during terrible January weather it was launched and this is what it was all about a larger screen with higher resolution and a larger battery.

At a lower price this might be worth considering, but the impressive screen doesn’t outweigh its shortcomings

Wileyfox Swift 2 X review
Source: V3.co.uk English
With so many budget brands to choose from, Android fans are now in the privileged position of being able to be a little choosy - even demanding - with our lower-end phones. The Swift 2 X is good, but it's not as good as the Honor 6X, and that costs just £5 more.

1080p and a bigger battery make this the Wileyfox phone to go for, and even though the price has been bumped, it's still a great value mid-ranger

A swish-looking smartphone that will meet light users’ needs, but don’t expect much from the camera.

On the whole, despite the concerns over the phone’s tendency to stutter and stall, the Swift 2 X seems a decent package. It has a nice design and build, the screen is bright and sharp, and the battery should be capable of getting the heaviest users through a work day.

The Swift 2 X has a lot going for it. The use of metal makes it one of the nicest-looking budget phones I’ve tested in quite some time. Add to this its upgraded 1080p screen, fingerprint scanner and improved battery tech and the Swift X 2 has the chops to be one of the best budget handsets this year.

Hands on: Wileyfox Swift 2 X review
Source: Techradar English
Wileyfox has fine-tuned its affordable smartphone formula, and the Swift 2 X is further evidence that the British firm knows what it’s doing in the lower end of the market.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 505: Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
430: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.4 GHz and the Adreno 505 GPU, a DDR3L-1600 memory controller as well as an X6 LTE (Cat. 4) modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
5.2":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
