Wileyfox Swift deal: 23 percent saving ahead of Black Friday

You can now get the Wileyfox Swift for less than £100 as part of Amazon’s ongoing Black Friday deals week.

It can’t have escaped your notice that it’s Black Friday tomorrow. Arguably the biggest participant in this day of deals is Amazon, and one of its current deals sees major savings on an already highly affordable smartphone.

You can currently pick up the Wileyfox Swift for just £99.99. That’s a saving of £29.50, or 23 percent. The deal only runs until midnight tonight, so don’t take too long making up your mind.

We reviewed the Wileyfox Swift back in September, and found it to be a fine budget smartphone option – particularly if privacy is major concern.

Privacy Guard, in particular, is a neat feature that lets you manually approve which apps can harvest data and which can’t. Meanwhile PIN Scramble constantly rejigs the order of the numbers in the keypad, so your pin code can’t be guessed from the smudges on your screen.

Other than these features, the Wileyfox Swift is a solid 5-inch smartphone that runs on CyanogenMod, the highly customisable Android modification that powered the original OnePlus One. It’s driven by a Snapdragon 410 and it packs a 13-megapixel camera.

At £129.49 it was arguably a little too close in price to the brilliant Moto G (2015), but at £99.99 it becomes a lot more appealing.
