Android Go phones are the perfect way to take a decent product for a some bucks. Because of to this Lite version of Google’s running system, even device with outdated or actually low-end hardware could run gentle abundant to handle all the main tasks in a sufficient way. That is why it was quite respectable that the fresh Redmi Go would have made a ton of success once in the market. However is it pretty the perfect Android Go alternative you can get in its price range or there are improved ones? We will try to let you find out by comparing it with two recent Android Go gadgets which deserve attention: the Nokia 1 Plus by HMD Global and the Asus Zenfone Live L1.
Affordable materials are very common on affordable smartphones sold for significantly less than €100, and individuals products are not an exception. All of them arrive with a plastic body, with Xiaomi Redmi Go exposing fairly thick bezels around the panel thanks to the 16:9 aspect ratio. In terms of aesthetics, Nokia 1 Plus and Asus Zenfone Live L1 are certainly improved and I would personally go for the former since it is a bit more small than its Taiwanese rival. You could take much more color choices with the latter, so make Obviously to Look them out before deciding.
If you are searching for the most detailed and satisfying display, then you must exclude the Nokia 1 Plus immediately because of to its below-HD resolution. Fortunately, both Xiaomi Redmi Go and Asus Zenfone come with an HD display, but Redmi Go has an outdated 16:9 display, whereas Asus Zenfone Live L1 ships with a taller 18:9 panel which boasts narrower bezels. Further more, the panel is wider. That is why Asus Zenfone Live L1 wins the display comparison.
Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the most strong cameraphone Right here due to its higher-end memory configurations. It arrives with up to 2 GB of RAM while Xiaomi Redmi Go and Nokia 1 Plus stop at just 1 GB. The inner memory goes up to 32 GB (furtherly expandable with a micro SD), whereas you take 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 need to come with better software optimization. However, its lower-end chipset and its small amount of RAM do not push it at the similar level as the Zenfone Live L1. Nokia 1 Plus has much better Wi-Fi connectivity as nicely as a more advanced Bluetooth variant.
Again, the victory goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1. It has a rear camera with a way higher resolution and it is in a position 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 unique but it clicks decent pictures when light conditions are nice. Nokia 1 Plus is a bit disappointing, specially on the video side as it can only record in 720p with its 8 MP rear camera.
Because of to the compact display, a fairly efficient SoC and a Quite pleasant 3000 mAh battery, Xiaomi Redmi Go provides a long battery life and it wins the battery comparison, no matter it is not based on Android Pie. The second place goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1 but not in every scenario.
Guys mainly choose these handsets due to the fact of their relatively low-cost price. You could 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 cost is about €100/$114 for the base variant with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of memory. I personally think that no matter its rivals are more recent, Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the perfect product in this comparison because of to its improved camera department and higher-end hardware, as nicely as its long-lasting battery.
