It is sandstone black in color and the display screen is a multitouch IPS screen with up to 16M colors.
THE CAMERA ?
Wow this is awesome. Having in mind the Infinix Zero 3, Wileyfox Storm runs up-to the Infinix Zero 3 camera. With a rear camera of 20 megapixels you can capture real pictures in their true colors and resolution. The camera sports a couple of features such as:- Face detection, Smile detection, Geo tagging, Autofocus, Panorama, Touch to focus, HDR and it also features a LED flashlight.
For the selfie lovers, the Wileyfox Storm has quite a thing in this section. Imagine a front shooter with an 8.0 megapixels sensor, you can capture yourself in the most beautiful way. The camera again has a superb LED flashlight for those awesome night vision photos of yourself.
The device can record 1080p video at 90fps
HARDWARE & PLATFORM
Well it doesn’t get any better. Wileyfox Storm does not run on stock Android. It however runs on Cyanogen OS v12.1 build based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The device sports an Octa Core Cortex A53 processor clocking at a frequency of 1.5 GHz.
The processor features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset that advances overall device performance. It also features a GPU for graphical purposes. The GPU on the Wileyfox Storm is an Adreno 405.
STORAGE OR MEMORY
Storsge is essential for any gadget and I’m this case, the Wileyfox Storm doesn’t disappoint at all. Featuring a 3 GB RAM just entirely means a new record in efficiency and swift normal device operations.
It also has an internal memory of 32 GB that can be upped by a MicroSD card thanks to the card slot. The card can support up-to 128GB. Something quite amazing.
The Wileyfox Storm is a good device. Well it deserves a better battery capacity that what it has got. Believe me you 2500mAh is just good but not good for a device with such power and interesting specifications.
The battery is a lithium ion polymer battery.
