The Wileyfox Pro Windows 10 Mobile handset is available once more

The Wileyfox Pro Windows 10 Mobile handset is available once more
Back in February, U.K. phone manufacturer Wileyfox went into administration, which is the British version of a bankruptcy filing in the U.S. The company found a savior in a company called STK, which made a deal to sell, distribute, and support the warranties for Wileyfox's handsets. In the UK, Europe, and South Africa, Wileyfox's Android phones are once again being offered for sale from the manufacturer's re-opened website.

Also on the Wileyfox website, you'll find the Wileyfox Pro. This is a Windows 10 Mobile powered handset that was launched late last year. The manufacturer promises to support the handset until 2020, and adds that it will receive monthly security and Windows 10 Mobile cumulative updates during that time period. Microsoft Office apps are built-in and the handset supports Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage.

Available for the price of £199.99 (equivalent to $280 USD at current exchange rates), the Wileyfox Pro carries a 5-inch IPS display with a 720 x 1280 resolution (HD). Under the hood is the Snapdragon 210 chipset, carrying a quad-core CPU running at a clock speed of 1.1GHz. The Adreno 304 GPU handles graphics. The phone features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. An 8MP camera adorns the back of the device, with a front-facing 2MP snapper for selfies and video chats. The whole shebang is powered by a 2100mAh battery.

Obviously, this is not a high-end, or even a mid-range handset. But if you need a new Windows 10 Mobile handset for business, the Wileyfox Pro is once again available for your consideration. If interested, click on the sourcelink.

Windows 10 Mobile UI is the most satisfying and fluid UI to navigate. Shame that it's dead.

They need to resurrect Metro UI with Live Tiles in the Microsoft Launcher for Android. Currently I run Square Home Launcher on my HTC 10 to give me a little of that nostalgic UI.

@Boybawang I'm afraid that's not entirely true! My Lumia, though very fluid when it comes to animations, takes an excruciating amount of time to open something as simple as What'sApp! Try 5 seconds! And the settings menu also take about 3 seconds to load. The only people who praise Windows 10 Mobile are the ones who have never had a Windows Phone! FACT!!! Oh well, the grass is always greener on the other side, eh? G'Day!

Well that's what you get for buying a 430. You can't make chicken salad out of chicken s**t. Try running Android Oreo on a SD200 series chipset with 2GB of RAM and see how far you get.

Will Brandon Watson(senior director of Windows phone) now say that WP OS is dead because manufacturers refused to embrace it?

That is funny they slap pro name even on SD 210 handset and charge £200 for a dead platform device. I am sure some people will fall for that.
