Can I say that someone “got swayed”?

“Czech is disappointed with his mobile phone so easily got swayed by Pole to exchange his old model for brand-new American one” Does “got swayed” exist? I mean persuade.

Answer

This might be OK in very informal speech but it would be better to write “was easily swayed”.

Also, your use of “Czech” and “Pole” is not right. You would have to say “A Czech” and “A Pole” and more prescriptive grammarians might insist on “A Czech person” and “A Polish person”.
