Re: My wife needs one of these immedeately.
I have tried (in vain) to point out that there is a delete function that can be applied to 19 of the 20 identical photos someone takes in the hope that one will be good.

I have maps and can use them, have even done an orienteering course, but for the "convenience and pragmatic reasons" you mention, I use a sat nav and believe it or not I have never driven into a river or down an impassable road because just like using a map, you still have to apply common-sense.
Just for fun, I followed the instructions on an Android site I presumably cannot link to here to upgrade my Swift to Nougat, the only thing that was a bit tricky was the wrong code for unlocking the bootloader was quoted but I found the correct one. After that installing TWRP then flashing the Nougat install and Google Apps was dead simple. I resisted the urge to give myself root access as you then cannot use online banking apps. Best of all it is pretty nippy.
Yes the MicroSD card limit is wrong and I'm not sure why so many reviewers repeat it, you'd think they'd know this stuff.
I was told that the the shyness about the real limit is to do with licensing and the real limit is much higher than 2TB.
I have the Swift with 64GB card (advertised limit 32GB), someone claims in the Amazon comments to have happily got a 200GB card in theirs.
The mixed reviews elsewhere about the Swift 2 seem to be inspired by some kind of backlash to do with the discovery that these phones are not made in UK and some brand snobbery.
I only see three reviews for the Swift 2 at time of writing, I have had the Swift since it came out after reading about it here and it is nothing short of superb, I find the negative reviews for the Swift on Amazon to positively reek of Dunning-Kruger syndrome and brand snobbery. I have bought four for various people and none have had the slightest issue whereas every negative review seems to say that the phone arrived broken and they never got a replacement.
The battery life moans I simply don't understand at all, I have never once exhausted the battery in less than a day.
Its interesting isn't it? Any proper definition of BMI will say something like the Wikipedia entry does "It is meant to be used as a simple means of classifying sedentary (physically inactive) individuals with an average body composition"
However and this is where people get confused, it is actually rather good at doing what it is not meant to be for, as a rule of thumb for whether an individual meeting the criteria above is prima facie in a healthy or unhealthy weight range.
The largest ever report into Cancer published in October 2007 had a key recommendation of
"PUBLIC HEALTH GOALS
Median adult body mass index (BMI) to be between 21 and 23"
The point I always emphasise in these discussions is if you have an overweight or obese BMI, go and have your Body Fat % professionally measured, that would settle things wouldn't it?
Of course the final twist in the tale is that individuals of high BMI and low body fat % still have a worse outlook than individuals of low BMI and low body fat %.
