81.7% Wileyfox Spark+ (Plus) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Clever Fox. The Wileyfox Spark+ is establishing itself in the entry-level mobile market by using classic features: removable battery, dual SIM functionality and a microSD card slot. This market segment is bristling with competitors and our test model will have to prove itself against them in our in-depth review.

With a decent screen, solid design and reasonable performance, the Wileyfox Spark Plus doesn't make a bad first impression. But buggy software, poor speakers, weak cameras and bad battery life means this is a handset to avoid.

Competitive. Wileyfox is launching its fifth smartphone, the Spark X. It offers dual-SIM, LTE and a large battery. For a 5.5-inch phone, it has great ambitions, as its price tag is below 200 Euros (~$211).

With poor performance and a price that pitches it even closer to the budget phone big hitters, the Wileyfox Spark X will struggle to dig out a niche for itself.

60% Wileyfox Spark X review – British company’s new phone lacks the X factor

It’s good to see a British company in the smartphone market, but Wileyfox needs a bit more cunning to beat the pack.

84% Wileyfox Spark X – Review
Source: Cool Smartphone English
This has a quality design and, after reading through the endless Amazon comments from customers, people who are buying this phone seem extremely happy with it. For the money you’re getting a well-equipped phone offering good performance, decent battery life and a clear, large display. Yes, the camera does let it down a little and the external speaker could be a touch louder – I played music through it but needed a Bluetooth speaker really. That’s the only real negatives I can pinpoint.

80% Wileyfox Spark X review: A new Moto G4 rival
Source: Expert Reviews English
For all its merits, though, there's still one smartphone that does it all better than the Spark X, and that's the Moto G4. It is, admittedly, £50 more expensive SIM-free, but I'd say it's worth the extra cost. Not only are you getting a sharper, higher-quality display, but also a superior camera and longer-lasting battery. The Spark X is still a good choice if you don't want to spend much more than £100 on a smartphone (although this might change once I get the new Moto E3 in for review, which has a 5in screen, a splashproof design and costs just £99). However, if you're looking for the very best budget smartphone that money can buy, the Moto G4 still reigns supreme.

Not exactly a new phone but a chance to purchase this ‘mid-range’ phone at a lower price by simply accepting a static ad as your lock screen, so you get a new phone of a design only launched a few months ago at a price of around 60% of what you would pay without the ad lock screen.
