Reviews for the Wileyfox Spark X
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.

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

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.

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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
