Android Go, a simplified version of Android by Google has already hit phones in the market. Many companies are also releasing new phones with Android Go. But with all these hybrid phones out there, which one should you consider? Well, here are the top Android Go smartphones that you need to know.
Top Android Go Smartphones
Android Go is a new breed of Android. It’s a more simplified and lite version of Android. With Android Go, one can go ahead and buy an entry level phone but still get all the features of Android. Google accomplishes this by releasing Go apps, that is basically a stripped down version of the native Google apps. But the phone and their build also play a huge part in this. So, here are the top Android Go smartphones that are great in hardware and also go well with the software too.
The Nokia 1 is yet another shot that Nokia is taking to get back to the smartphone business. The Nokia 1 has poor specs when compared to conventional smartphones, but does very well running Android Go. The Nokia 1 comes with a 4.5 inch IPS display that runs on MediaTek’s MT6737 quad-core processor. There is 1GB of RAM. When coming to the memory, the phone has 8GB of internal storage and an external storage that can be expanded to up to 128GB.
The hardware of the Nokia 1 is also a bit shocking. The rear camera on the phone is 5 megapixel and the front-facing camera is 2 megapixel. There is 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 and also Wi-Fi. Nokia 1 is powered by a 2,150mAh battery. Though the other specs on the phone might be low, they go well with the operating system. But the battery is a huge slack for the phone, and screen time can be a huge question.
The Nokia 1 will be made available for Rs. 5,500.
Lava is also back in the game with Android Go, and the Z50 is its first Android Go smartphone. The Lava Z50 comes with 8GB of internal storage and 1GB RAM. The phone has a tiny 4.5-inch display with Gorilla Glass protection.
The Lava Z50 comes in a promotional offer with Airtel, including a cashback of Rs. 2,000.
ZTE Tempo Go
The ZTE Tempo Go also shares the same specs as its fellow Android Go smartphones. The Tempo Go runs on a low-end Snapdragon 210 processor which is coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The memory can be expanded using an SD card, but it can be expanded only till 32GB.
Again, with the Tempo Go the battery is a huge let down by being only a 2,200mAh one. The ZTE Tempo Go sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing selfie camera too. The ZTE Temp Go also comes with 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 and also Wi-Fi.
The Alcatel 1X is one of the only phones that offer a choice in RAM and storage. The Alcatel 1X features a MediaTek 6739 processor, and the phone is available in 1GG and 2GB RAM variants. The Alcatel 1X sports an 8MP rear camera and a front-facing 5MP camera. The Alcatel 1X features a 2,460mAh battery, a built-in storage of 16GB, and also expandable storage too. The base variant of the phone, the 1GB of RAM version will be sold for Rs. 8,800.
