Wileyfox Storm SIM Free UK AudioFX

Overview

With dozens of Android smartphone manufacturers vying for attention, including long-established brands, Wileyfox have decided it's time for something a little different.

Taking the concept of an affordable and powerful Android smartphone, they have made the decision to use the Cyanogen version of the operating system rather than a traditional installation.

This decision, alongside a customer service proposition that values individual users and their personal choices in how to use their phone, marks them out as a different breed.

Wileyfox have also opted for high quality component manufacturers. Unlike some budget brands, you will find top quality processors, camera modules and memory inside your phone from the likes of Qualcomm, Samsung and Sony.

Cyanogen OS

Based on the Android mobile platform, the Cyanogen OS is an open source project, contributed to by developers from all over the world.

Wileyfox Storm SIM Free Cyanogen OSCreated with the ethos of empowering the user by not limiting access to features and allowing high levels of customisation, the Cyanogen OS is a world apart from the heavily curated versions of Android available on big name handsets such as Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG and Motorola.

It also presents more choice and 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.

Customisation

First up is the world of Themes. Offering far more than the usual wallpaper or sometimes access to fonts, Cyanogen Themes allow for incredibly deep customisation.

There are hundreds of premade themes in the Cyanogen gallery, with more being added by respected community members every week. Why stop there though? With the Theme Chooser you can mix and match parts of any current theme to build your own.

Want to change the settings icon? Upload a new one. After a new tune or video to play when the phone turns on? Do it. How about changing the lockscreen layout.

Wileyfox Storm SIM Free Back CoverCyanogen 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

Other manufacturers create software for a single phone then rarely, if ever, update it properly. Cyanogen has been developed and worked on daily for well over 5 years. The system has been optimised by skilled and passionate developers whose ultimate 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

Cyanogen have introduced Privacy Guard - this is a simple application that lets you see exactly what your phone is revealing to the world. If an app is accessing files or sending out information you don't want it to, then you can easily find out.

PIN scramble is a neat feature to randomise the numbers for your PIN every time it loads the keypad. Now people won't be able to reconstruct your PIN from smudges on the screen or watching where your fingers go.

Wileyfox Storm SIM Free Lockscreen PINRemote 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 Storm has a large 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD screen from LG that provides 400 pixels per inch.

The fully laminated display offers high-quality colour reproduction with excellent viewing angles.

Camera

Using a top of the range Sony EXMOR IMX220 sensor with 20 megapixels, the Wileyfox Storm can take incredible pictures, even in low light.

With Cyanogen's deep access to camera controls, you can control burst mode, exposure time and compensation, white balance and many other features usually only available on much more expensive smartphones or dedicated cameras.

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.

You'll also find a high resolution 8MP Selfie camera and flash on the front of the Storm.

  • Alven 23/1/2016 Recommend to a friend? Yes

    Best phone I have gotten till now and cheaper than the other phones I had. No breaking problems.

    Battery empties kinda fast with some apps like tumbrl, but if you close the apps you open after your use you can easily have battery for 12 to 16 hours. When you put it to charge it might say 20 hours till charged but charges within an hour most of the times.

    Camera is really amazing, the best I have seen till now. Focuses pretty fast. And colours are really nice.

    The monitor has really good quality. Is perfect for games and videos and photos.

    It has played all games I have tried without loosing frames. But with the high end games it gets a bit warmer.
    For the money and a new company this phone is amazing. You find phones with same specifications and even worse for more money just because of the brand.

  • Harry 21/1/2016 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    A phone without manufacturer's crapware. An unlocked phone with no phone company crapware. A phone with a supported, regularly updated OS that puts the user in greater control than most unrooted phones, with none of the utter lack of fun unrooting your phone brings. A phone with a clear, well-balanced screen, good sound, a fast chip, decent memory, and expandable to boot.

    If it had a slighly more powerful battery, it'd be perfect. Until then, it'll do me nicely.
  • david 3/11/2015 Recommend to a friend? Yes

    excellent phone, very fast and responsive, all apps I have used have worked well so far, i was worried about the size but it is actually well proportioned, the screen is bright and can be seen from all angles, this phone looks amazing with its multicolour glowing light at the bottom. the charger cable is very short so make sure you're near a usb port as it doesn't come with a plug but i couldn't care less about the plug as it is such a high spec phone for half the price of a typical flagship! The only problem i have is the battery life as it struggles to get through a whole day but as soon as the power packs are released i will get one which should hopefully back me up if it gets low! cyanogen is a really nice OS and works very well on this phone, the back camera is decent for pictures with plenty of detail and the front facing flash is usefull as well , bought this as an ex display phone from clove and it was as new! would definitely recommend this phone considering the price and specs!

  • Kevin 18/11/2015 Recommend to a friend? No
    Nice phone. I purchased this to replace my HTC M8.
    But....Battery life is a big problem for me. Charging takes ages. Approx 20 hours to fully charge from zero. The charge speed is less than the usage if wifi is turned on. I am hoping that the device is faultly and gets replaced, otherwise it will have to go back.
  • Cengiz 5/11/2015 Recommend to a friend? No

    I'm from Hong Kong After using one week .....and up date system. Telephone following indicator damage: phone below left following indicator lights, sometimes does not shine, and sometimes kept flashing...(3 LEDs, the right two lit, the left does not..).. Signal reception is poor, by on buses and indoor... Even when 2G transition 3g to lte 4g, very slowly, and sometimes not even call, and Internet.... During twice re boot...... Over All.....:Disappointed...

     

    1/12 Clove Response: We are sorry that you are not happy with the device.  The issue with the LEDs behind the button has been acknowledged and is being dealt with by Wileyfox.  Signal reception can vary based on network and location but we take seriously poor performance and would gladly look to test or replace the unit if it was not performing to standard.  We can be contacted on sales@clove.co.uk for further discussion.
