Android Go smartphones are the perfect way to take a good device for a handful of bucks. Because of to this Lite version of Google’s operating system, even smartphone with outdated or truly low-end hardware can run delicate abundant to handle all the base tasks in a enough way. That is why it was fairly expectable that the new Redmi Go would have made a large amount of success once in the market. But is it really the best Android Go different you could take in its value range or there are improved ones? We will try to let you discover out by comparing it with two recent Android Go devices which deserve attention: the Nokia 1 Plus by HMD Global and the Asus Zenfone Live L1.
Cheap materials are quite common on inexpensive phones sold for fewer than €100, and individuals devices are not an exception. All of them come with a plastic body, with Xiaomi Redmi Go showing fairly thick bezels around the panel 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 since it is somewhat more little than its Taiwanese rival. You could get much more colour choices with the latter, so deliver sure to Look them out before deciding.
If you are searching for the most detailed and satisfying screen, 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 Fortunately, both Xiaomi Redmi Go and Asus Zenfone come with an HD screen, however Redmi Go has an outdated 16:9 panel, although Asus Zenfone Live L1 arrives with a taller 18:9 panel which swanks narrower bezels. Further more, the panel is wider. That is why Asus Zenfone Live L1 wins the screen comparison.
Redmi Go vs Nokia 1 Plus vs Asus Zenfone Live L1 Specs
Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the most powerful cameraphone here thanks to its higher-end storage configurations. It comes 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), although 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 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 much 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 in a position to record videos in Full-HD at 30 fps. Further, 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 respectable pictures whenever light conditions are good. Nokia 1 Plus is a bit disappointing, particularly on the video side as it can only record in 720p with its 8 MP rear sensor.
Due to the smaller panel, a quite efficient SoC and a Really Terrific 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.
People mainly decide those handsets because of their pretty budget price tag. 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 memory. I personally think that regardless of its rivals are much more recent, Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the suitable gadget in this comparison because of to its better digital camera department and higher-end hardware, as well as its long-lasting battery.
