Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of Wileyfox ever before, coz we haven’t either. But you might have heard of CyanogenMod or Cyanogen OS. The Cyanogen Oneplus deal was definitely a big hit and every on the globe knows that. Brands like Panasonic, Huawei, Lenovo, HTC and so many other well established companies are still struggling to reach where OnePlus has reached today. Without Cyanogen, OnePlus was just a name and not a brand.
After that we have seen there are some other smaller OEMs like Micromax and AndroMax also partnered with Cyanogen Inc. to bring low cost Android smartphones. Recently Wileyfox, a London based mobile phone company introduced itself with Cyanogen OS powered two Android smartphones namely: Storm and Swift.
The Wileyfox Storm is powered by a Snapdragon 615 processor and is equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 20-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM and a microSD card slot.
The Wileyfox Swift is the more affordable of the two smartphones and has a smaller 5-inch 720p display, support for dual SIM cards, a 13-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a Snapdragon 410 processor, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot and 2GB of RAM.
Both the phones run Cyanogen OS 12.1 out-of-box and not the CyanogenMod. There is a considerable difference between CyanogenMod and Cyanogen OS.
The Wileyfox Storm will set you back £199 ($313), while the Wileyfox Swift is priced at £129 ($202).
