An increasing number of brands have tried to carve out a place in the entry-level smartphone market.
Few have made such an impression as Wileyfox, who captured the imaginations of customers and industry experts with the Swift smartphone, released in 2015 and providing incredible value for money.
Wileyfox are looking to shake things up again with the sub-£100 Spark.
It should be clear that this isn't a replacement for the Swift - instead it's a true entry level phone with specifications that should be considered the lowest Wileyfox are prepared to go whilst still making a reliable and feature-rich handset.
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.
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.
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.
The Wileyfox Spark has a large 5.0 inch HD IPS LCD screen that provides 294 pixels per inch. The fully laminated display offers high-quality colour reproduction with excellent viewing angles.
The Spark uses 2 8MP camera sensors, one on the front and one on the back.
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.
