Android Go smartphones are the best way to get a respectable gadget for a number of bucks. Thanks to this Lite version of Google’s operating system, even device with outdated or extremely low-end hardware can run delicate enough to handle all the main tasks in a enough way. That is why it was pretty expectable that the fresh Redmi Go would have made a ton of success once in the market. However is it Very the best Android Go alternative you can get in its price tag range or there are much better ones? We will try to let you find out by comparing it with 2 recent Android Go products what deserve attention: the Nokia 1 Plus by HMD Global and the Asus Zenfone Live L1.
Cheap materials are fairly common on budget smartphones sold for much less than €100, and individuals devices are not an exception. All of them come with a plastic body, with Xiaomi Redmi Go revealing pretty thick bezels around the display due to the 16:9 aspect ratio. In terms of aesthetics, Nokia 1 Plus and Asus Zenfone Live L1 are surely improved and I would personally go for the former because it is a bit far more modest than its Taiwanese rival. You can take more colour choices with the latter, so deliver Of course to Look them out before deciding.
If you are looking for the most detailed and satisfying screen, then you must exclude the Nokia 1 Plus immediately thanks to its below-HD resolution. Fortunately, both Xiaomi Redmi Go and Asus Zenfone arrive with an HD display, but Redmi Go has an outdated 16:9 display, although Asus Zenfone Live L1 arrives with a taller 18:9 panel which swanks narrower bezels. Further more, the display 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 phone Below thanks to its higher-end memory configurations. It ships with up to 2 GB of RAM although Xiaomi Redmi Go and Nokia 1 Plus stop at just 1 GB. The inner storage 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 should come with improved software optimization. However, its lower-end chipset and its small amount 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 variant.
Again, the victory goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1. It has a rear digital camera with a way higher resolution and it is able 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 however it clicks decent photos when light conditions are beneficial. Nokia 1 Plus is a bit disappointing, extremly on the video side as it could only record in 720p with its 8 MP rear digital camera.
Due to the smaller panel, a fairly efficient SoC and a fairly nice 3000 mAh battery, Xiaomi Redmi Go provides a long battery life and it wins the battery comparison, regardless of it is not based on Android Pie. The second place goes to the Asus Zenfone Live L1 but not in every scenario.
People mainly pick individuals handsets because of their relatively budget price. 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 value 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 much more recent, Asus Zenfone Live L1 is the suitable gadget in this comparison thanks to its better camera department and higher-end hardware, as well as its long-lasting battery.
