Wileyfox Named Challenger Manufacturer of the Year


LONDON, March 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Mobile News Award Seals Six Months Of Phenomenal Success 

Less than six months since shipping its first smartphone, British manufacturer Wileyfox has been named Challenger Manufacturer of the Year by Mobile News. The award ceremony, held this evening at the London Hilton, Park Lane, saw Wileyfox triumph over a field of longer-established competitors.

The Award seals six months of phenomenal success from the brand, which launched in August 2015 with two, contract-free, dual SIM smartphones: Wileyfox Swift and Wileyfox Storm. Available online only, the Swift shot to pole position on Amazon in pre-orders alone, and sold out within three days of going on sale. In December, it was named Smartphone of the Year by Forbes magazine. Sales volume across the portfolio is triple the pre-launch forecast and the London-based company is now expanding across Europe and beyond.

Commenting on the win, Nick Muir, CEO of Wileyfox said: "Winning Challenger Manufacturer of the Year is an incredible accolade for Wileyfox, especially because we didn't go on sale until October last year. You only have to think about who we beat to realise the magnitude of the achievement."

Wileyfox's business model is built around smartphones being an essential commodity, not a luxury. The company creates phones using world-class, tier one, competitively priced components and passes the savings from its lean business model to customers. Swift and Storm are available at £129 and £199 and have received near universal critical acclaim.

In addition to the disruptive business model, the judges were also impressed by Wileyfox's added-value customer care. From its fits-through-your-letterbox packaging and European call centres, to unlimited screen replacement and extended warranties for £9.99 each.
