Overview

Wileyfox are fast trying to corner the entry-level smartphone market for themselves. Last year's Swift & Storm phones were very well-received and, in 2016, this British-based brand wants to be the go-to name in Europe and beyond for affordability.

The cheapest entry-level phone is the basic Spark. At just £89.99, the price alone is enough to turn heads. The specifications do make for a very simple phone though, so if you want a little extra power, then the Spark+ is the way to go.

Very similar to last year's Swift, the Spark+ provides a 13MP camera, 16 GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM. These are all key upgrades over the basic Spark and make for a much more versatile phone.

Whereas the the sub-£100 Spark should be seen as a true entry level phone for young teens, novices or first-time smartphone owners, the Spark+ has the extra power required to keep the majority of modern users happy.

Cyanogen OS

Wileyfox have continued to place faith in the CyangoenOS system to power their phones.

The newest CyanogenOS 13.1 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and includes a number of Android's newest key features such as advanced power management, merging external storage and permissions structure.

CyanogenOS differs from Android by not limiting access to certain aspects of the operating system and also allowing for high levels of customisation - a far cry from heavily locked down versions of Android installed on phones from more well-known manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG.

It also presents more options than the recent versions of Google's own stock Android, which many users have said is now far more restrictive than the original intentions ever were.

Cyanogen focusses on user customisation, performance and security.

Themes & Customisation

By using the Cyanogen Theme engine, you can quickly change the look and feel of the phone. You can also customise certain aspects of each Theme.

Hundreds of themes are available to download in the Cyanogen gallery - some paid for and some free - with more added every week. Theme Chooser lets you mix and match parts of any theme you have downloaded to make a hybrid.

Cyanogen OS even allows you to change the interaction with the device. You can change the response to actions such as Long Press, Tap or Double Tap and create your own shortcuts from gestures inputted on the lockscreen.

Performance

Many manufacturers create software for a single phone then rarely update it.

Cyanogen has been developed and worked on daily for well over 5 years. The system has been optimised by skilled and passionate developers whose goal is to create something they would be happy to use every day.

One of the most obvious positives from this work is increased battery life, along with the ability for you, as the user, to adjust & modify battery use to individual apps to eke out extra hours if necessary.

Security

Built in to the Cyanogen system is Privacy Guard. This app gives you deep control over the system features that other applications can access.

This builds on from Android 6.0's updates to the system permissions. With these an app will always ask before it can access a system feature for the first time. Privacy Guard grants you the ability to revoke access to system features, at any time, to any app that is coded to ask for them.

PIN scramble is another simple security addition. If you use a PIN to lock your screen then this nifty feature randomises the number grid you put the PIN in on! With this people won't be able to reconstruct your PIN from smudges on the screen or watching where your fingers go.

Remote tracking and wiping of your phone is possible from your (optional) Cyanogen account.

You can use Protected Apps to lock certain applications behind a PIN or pattern lock, even after you're on the home screen. Put apps and shortcuts inside secure folders to avoid data leak or just plain, old-fashioned embarrassment if someone picks up your phone or you pass it to them.

Cyanogen OS also features a built-in Blacklist to permanently block numbers from ever calling or texting you again.

Screen

The Wileyfox Spark+ has a large 5.0 inch HD IPS LCD screen that provides 294 pixels per inch. This is a fully laminated display with high-quality colour reproduction with excellent viewing angles.

Dragontrail glass has also been used for the screen covering. More resistant to scratches and impacts than other competing technologies at this price point, the Spark+ will stay looking good for longer, even if you like to carry it in a crowded bag!

Camera

The Spark+ features a high-fidelity 13 MP Samsung sensor as the main camera and comparitively high-resolution 8MP sensors on the front for taking selfies and video-calls.

Cyanogen's camera app offers deep access to camera controls, so you can control burst mode, exposure time and compensation, white balance and many other features. Normally this level of control would be out of reach on cheaper smartphones.

Slow motion video recording is available, as well as the option to save your photos in uncompressed raw format (.DNG), perfect for those looking to complete highly detailed editing post-capture.
