This has to be one of the worst products I’ve ever reviewed. Hopefully SWAP will take this all on the chin, but if need be I’ll burn that bridge to warn everyone away from this. The SWAP Rebel is a horrendous product. It’s aggravating in the extreme. I appreciate that some features might not work because of my remote location, but the ones that do are terrible. The camera snaps pictures of your wrist half the time, the screen is tiny and the touch capabilities are inaccurate unless you use the undersized stylus and even then they’re not great. I know a touch screen is cool, but please guys, at this size, it’s not needed. Just give us some buttons.
And £180? Are you kidding me? I honestly wouldn’t consider buying this for £20. I can’t overestimate how much Im saying it. Never, ever even consider buying this. If someone offers to give you one, I’d stay away.
I’m sorry SWAP, try again, and try a lot harder.
Lots of features
