WileyFox Spark Review: as British as PoundLand

 

Cheap as chips, and not very good

Expandable storage ; Front camera ; Sleek design

Heinously slow OS ; Battery life won’t last a day ; Rear camera poor

WileyFox Spark review

 

A plausible price tag, but it's less bright spark and more damp squib

At £89 you can't expect too much from the Spark, but when a phone struggles with even the basics you really have to worry. It's a mind-numbingly frustrating experience from the moment you turn it on, and impossible to recommend.

It certainly looks like a promising set of smartphones, but will they be able to topple the mighty Moto G4? They definitely have price on their side, but when the Moto G4 offers so much more for just £170, Wileyfox has another tough job on its hands....

Wileyfox Spark Review: In Depth

 

Wileyfox Spark Review: At just £89, the Wileyfox Spark is one of the cheapest mobiles you can bag right now, but you'll be paying the price in other ways. Here's our full Wileyfox Spark review.British…

Decent camera in daylight ; Cyanogen OS ; Respectable budget screen

Terrible performance ; Low light camera action

The Wileyfox Spark tantalises us with a feature-packed OS that packs some great privacy and personalisation tools, as well as a decent budget display and surprisingly good rear camera (during daylight conditions). That’s why it’s so frustrating that...
