Wileyfox likely isn’t a name you’ve heard, but the British start-up is beginning to make a name for itself. The company uses CyanogenOS to power its new family of smartphones, the Spark family. This series includes the Spark, Spark+ and the Spark X, all of which are affordably priced and reasonably specced. Let’s take a look at the base model Spark.
- 5-inch 720p IPS display
- 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor

- 8-megapixel rear camera
- 8-megapixel front-facing camera
- 22oomAh battery

As you can see, the Wileyfox Spark is midrange. But its price might make up for it. Wileyfox has the Spark priced at just £89.99 or €119.99.
The Spark+ doubles the storage and RAM to 16GB and 2GB, respectively. The rear camera is also bumped up to 13-megapixels. The Spark X takes all the specs of the Spark+, but bumps up the display size to 5.5 inches and also boosts the battery capacity to 3000mAh.
Pricing for the Wileyfox Spark+ is set at £114.99 or €149.99. Pricing for the Wileyfox Spark X is set at £129.99 or €169.99. The Wileyfox Spark is now up for pre-order through Amazon, with orders shipping on July 12.
