With a sea of solid mid-range smartphones ready for the choosing, finding one that stands out from the crowd can be difficult. Luckily, the Wileyfox Swift makes the search a bit easier.
Tactile back cover with interesting design; Simple and clean OS; Solid all round specs

At R3 000, very few devices can provide the same mix of display, build quality and OS, with the strong exception of the Redmi Note 2. Add to that it's intriguingly designed back cover, and you've got a 5" smartphone that is not only dependable, but also great to look at and hold.
