CM13 comes to Wileyfox Swift & Storm and Moto RAZR, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, Droid 4

We’ve covered both the Wileyfox Swift and Wileyfox Storm in detail (read & watch our reviews here and here, respectively), and now the two phones—which by default run Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android Lollipop—are getting CyanogenMod 13 nightlies (via Android Police). We’ve said that the British-made and well-specced handsets are a great deal for the price if you live in the UK, even though they may not have anywhere near the hype or brand recognition of OnePlus…

You can find CM13 download links for the two phones here:

In addition, it seems a few ancient handsets also just starting receiving their first CyanogenMod 13 nightlies. The Motorola RAZR, Motorola Droid RAZR,  Motorola Droid Bionic, and Motorola Droid 4 are all joining ranks among dozens of other handsets. Marshmallow builds for these phones and others have been popping up here and there, but if you’ve been waiting on the tried and true (although maybe not in this case, as these are nightlies after all) CyanogenMod, you’re in luck.

Grab a OnePlus One, slap on a fox logo and some pretty, shiny orange trim and you essentially have the Wileyfox Storm. It’s an attractive, affordable handset which currently stands as one of the few official Cyanogen partner phones with flagship specs. It’s made by a British company, and my experience with it has generally been pleasing…

Recently, I checked out the Wileyfox Swift, it’s one of the best phones on the market in Europe at its pricepoint. This is the Wileyfox Storm, the company’s more expensive device that aims to bring flagship specs at an affordable price point. Before reviewing it at a later date, we wanted to unbox it and see what we thought of the smartphone on first impressions…

The budget smartphone tier is getting more interesting as every month goes by. What you can get for your money on a low budget these days is fantastic. And it gets better every time any company releases a new competitive low-end phone. While some might look to the likes of the Moto G, or Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 as the ultimate in bang-for-buck device, there’s a new company from Britain in town which might have just released one of the most disruptive phones so far.

The Wileyfox Swift costs £129 in the UK (that’s £15-60 less than the UK Moto G), and offers an incredible all-round experience for the money…

The smartphone market is getting crowded by low cost phones offering great performance. It’s been something of a rising trend, especially with brands like OnePlus and Alcatel OneTouch leading the way. The next devices wanting a piece of the action are the Wileyfox Swift and Wileyfox Storm. Both released in what looks like a direct response to last year’s “flagship killer”, the OnePlus One.

I unboxed the more budget-friendly model of the two, the Wileyfox Swift, to see if it could deliver as much bang for your buck as other, similar devices…
