Android Go phones are the perfect way to get a good device for a number of bucks. Thanks to this Lite version of Google’s running system, even device with outdated or very low-end hardware can run smooth enough to handle all the main tasks in a enough way. That is why it was fairly expectable that the fresh Redmi Go would have made a large amount of success once in the market. But is it Quite the best Android Go different you can take in its value range or there are much better ones? We will try to let you find out by comparing it with two recent Android Go products which deserve attention: the Nokia 1 Plus by HMD Global and the Asus Zenfone Live L1.
Affordable materials are fairly common on inexpensive smartphones sold for fewer than €100, and those devices are not an exception. All of them arrive with a plastic body, with Xiaomi Redmi Go revealing very thick bezels about the screen due to the 16:9 aspect ratio. In terms of aesthetics, Nokia 1 Plus and Asus Zenfone Live L1 are undoubtedly much better and I would personally go for the former because it is somewhat much more compact than its Taiwanese rival. You can take more colour choices with the latter, so deliver Obviously to check them out before deciding.
If you are searching for the most detailed and satisfying screen, then you should exclude the Nokia 1 Plus immediately thanks to its below-HD resolution. Fortunately, both Xiaomi Redmi Go and Asus Zenfone arrive with an HD panel, however Redmi Go has an outdated 16:9 display, whereas Asus Zenfone Live L1 ships with a taller 18:9 display what swanks narrower bezels. Further more, the screen is wider. That is why Asus Zenfone Live L1 wins the panel comparison.
Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the most powerful cameraphone Below due to its higher-end storage configurations. It arrives with up to 2 GB of RAM whereas Xiaomi Redmi Go and Nokia 1 Plus stop at just 1 GB. The internal storage goes up to 32 GB (furtherly expandable with a micro SD), whereas you get max 16 GB for the Nokia 1 Plus and just 8 GB for Xiaomi Redmi Go. Note that Nokia 1 Plus is the only one based on Android Pie, so it must arrive with much better software optimization. However, its lower-end chipset and its low quantity of RAM do not push it at the exactly level as the Zenfone Live L1. Nokia 1 Plus has improved Wi-Fi connectivity as well as a far more advanced Bluetooth version.
Again, the victory goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1. It has a rear camera with a way higher resolution and it is capable to record videos in Full-HD at 30 fps. Further more, it has a front-facing LED flash, unlike its rivals. At the second place, we put the Xiaomi Redmi Go with its 8 MP rear snapper, nothing extra special but it clicks good images when light conditions are nice. Nokia 1 Plus is a bit disappointing, especially on the video side as it can only record in 720p with its 8 MP rear digital camera.
Because of to the compact display, a pretty efficient SoC and a pretty good-looking 3000 mAh battery, Xiaomi Redmi Go provides a long battery life and it wins the battery comparison, despite it is not based on Android Pie. The second place goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1 however not in every scenario.
Guys mainly select individuals handsets because of their quite cheap cost. You can grab a unit of the Xiaomi Redmi Go for just €80/$90, Nokia 1 Plus costs about €90/$102 and Asus Zenfone Live L1’s price is about €100/$114 for the main variant with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage. I personally think that no matter its rivals are far more recent, Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the suitable device in this comparison thanks to its better digital camera department and higher-end hardware, as nicely as its long-lasting battery.
