Our review of the WileyFox Swift is coming soon (I promise!!) but in the mean time, you can now get your hands on their other device, the Storm!
Going on sale today for £199, the Storm is their premium handset. Rocking the Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 5.5” Full HD Display, it sounds tempting. Only time will tell how long the 2,500 mAh battery can keep it all running for. Like many other handsets out there trying to make premium phones affordable, the Storm comes with a 20MP Sony camera, these units perform quite well in many different conditions.
Head on past the break for the full press release, or go to the WileyFox website to order one. WileyFox have been very kind and sent us one to review, I promise I’ll write that one up much quicker!
