The Wileyfox Storm smartphone goes on sale today in the UK at a price of £199. The name may not be familiar, but it gives mid-range phones a run for their money, with features like a 5.5-inch full HD screen and 20-megapixel camera.

It can be bought on the Wileyfox website or from Argos, Amazon, Expansys and Ebuyer as well.

The Storm runs on the Android-based Cyanogen OS, which is a version of Android 5.1. Never heard of Cyanogen? Well, it looks and runs the same as Android. The only thing you’ll need to do to get started is set up a Cyanogen account if you haven’t got one already.

Are you into gadgets? And apps? And other cool tech stuff? Then this weekly newsletter is for you.

Going up against other mid-range handsets like the Moto G and Sony’s M4 Aqua, both available at a lower price than the Storm, Wileyfox may face some stiff competition given that the brand is less of a household name.
