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.

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


The Wileyfox Spark is a very low-cost phone, designed for the sort of buyer who's willing to shop around online, rather than just heading to the high street and picking the cheapest Samsung device off the shelf.

Wileyfox Spark review - hands on


Wileyfox hopes to spark new competition in the budget smartphone market - we go hands on with its latest handset

Wileyfox Spark review - it doesn't light my fire


Beautifully made, but its sluggish performance and terrible battery life fail to make sparks fly

It also failed to complete our offscreen Manhattan 3.0 test in GFX Bench GL, and was an absolute disaster when it came to playing even the simplest of games. Even Threes! was utterly unplayable, so this definitely isn't a good choice for those who like...

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...

Good Looking Phone


Great looking phone. Good size screen. Unfortunately had to return it as screen kept flickering and freezing.

Build quality is good, as a bonus you receive a 16gb memory card and protective cover in the box, call quality is good. This phone struggles to cope with even the basic functions of a smartphone, startup takes over 3 minutes until the main menu is...

Ok little phone, bought for 10 year old daughter.


Not a bad phone for the money. Daughter liked the design but is a bit laggy/ slow when trying to do more than one thing at a time.
