First Impression

When we powered the  Redmi Go it booting time was quite fast, and if you haven’t used or tried Android Go (Google’s stripped down version of Android) smartphone earlier, you will find its user interface a bit different from the smartphones that use stock Android. First-time smartphone users will find it quite easy to explore and within a few minutes of using they will be comfortable with it and will know how to use the basic features on the smartphone.


Xiaomi Redmi Go has a fundamental design and their nothing wow or bad about it. It can support dual SIM and MicroSD card. The display is vibrant than most the Android Go smartphones we have seen in the past but readability is bright sunlight is an issue. As far the security is concerned it has no fingerprint sensor and fancy face unlockfeatures that many of us are now accustomed to. One has to use the good old pattern or pin loock to secure the device.


In the camera department, pictures clicked in good lighting condition came out well and especially if we keep the pricing in mind detailing and color reproduction were good. We have not tested the battery of the device but one can expect around a days backup on a single charge.


Xiaomi Redmi Go is  good entry level smartphone without any whistles and bells. It is meant for first-time smartphone users who are on a tight budget.





Xiaomi Redmi Go is not there to impress you. It is meant to bring feature phone consumers to the smartphone highway.
