Yes ! The Spark was an excellent product. however 2 things put me off. If it had a user removable/replaceable Battery & at least one normal full size sim slot supporting 3G I would have gone for it. Same with Spark 2. It’s normal size sim slot does not support 3G.

For me only 5 things are important in a smart phone. Long Hours on Wi-Fi+One Normal SIM Supporting 3G+Gorilla Glass+USB OTG+User Removable Battery. Rest like Gaming & camera are for children.
