Engadget Review

Wileyfox's Storm makes a great first impression, with all the looks and build quality of a more expensive flagship. The spec sheet, too, is pretty attractive considering its £199 price tag, but dependable performance is one of its only likable traits. The Storm's display is just "good enough," battery life is unimpressive and the 20-megapixel main camera is poor to the point of being incredibly frustrating to use. With plenty of other smartphones that promise a better all-round experience for roughly the same price or cheaper, the Storm is frankly an instantly forgettable device.

Pros
  • Stylish design
  • Solid performance
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Terrible camera
  • Mediocre battery life
