Trên tay xiaomi redmi go: giá rất rẻ, nhưng vẫn dùng tốt

Redmày Go offers good specifications for a sub-Rs. 5,000 phone. Read on for more

Redmày Go design

The Redngươi Go is a very plain-looking phone, but it feels lượt thích it"s much more expensive sầu than it is. You wouldn"t be able khổng lồ tell that it"s so affordable just by looking at it. The body is entirely plastic but there are no ugly seams or other signs of cost-cutting. The rear is nicely curved, & there"s no flex or any other sign of weakness.

On the front of the Redngươi Go, we have a 16:9 rectangular screen with capacitive Android buttons below it, and thiông xã borders all around. This feels lượt thích a bit of a throwback, since most budget phones today have moved to 18:9 or taller screens; many even with notches. There"s nothing wrong with any of this, of course. We only have one minor complaint, which is that the capacitive sầu buttons aren"t backlit, making them a little hard to lớn find in the dark.

The screen measures 5 inches diagonally, making it smaller than most low-cost phones today. Even with a lot of blaông xã plastic above và below the screen, the Redmày Go is fairly compact and very easy to lớn use with one hvà. The 137g weight is also well below today"s average. All of this is good news for people who don"t like how big & unwieldy many of today"s phones have sầu become.

There are two trays on the left, one for a Nano-SIM and a microSD thẻ, và the second for another Nano-SIM. This is interesting, seeing as how even some of Xiaomi"s higher-priced models have sầu hybrid dual-SIM slots. The power & volume buttons are on the right. There"s a Micro-USB port on the bottom, along with a speaker grille, & you"ll find a 3.5mm headphones socket on the top. The single rear camera is perfectly flush with the back of this phone, which means the lens might be susceptible to scratches. One thing that"s missing is a notification LED.

The Redmày Go is available in plain blaông xã and a more vibrant blue finish. We were happy lớn note that fingerprint smudges were not too visible on our black Đánh Giá unit. We think that Xiaongươi has designed this phone well, balancing cost-effectiveness with functionality. First-time điện thoại thông minh users shouldn"t feel too daunted, và those replacing an older budget phone won"t be pulled out of their comfort zones.


Redmày Go specifications và software

Considering its price, the Redmi Go has two main things going for it – its processor và its screen. The Qualcomm SnapLong 425 SoC is now quite dated, but it keeps popping up in new phones. It has been comtháng in phones priced at around Rs. 7,000 – 10,000 of late, including the Infinix Hot 6 Pro(Review), 10.or D2(Review), & Nocơ 2.1. Samsung even launched its Galaxy J6+(Review)with this processor at Rs. 15,990 late last year. The SnapLong 425 has four low-power Cortex-A53 cores running at up lớn 1.4GHz & the weak Adreno 308 integrated GPU.

The screen of the Redmày Go surprised us because of its 720x1280 resolution. It wasn"t too long ago that the best we could hope for at this level was 480x854 or 540x960-px panels. At 5 inches, this screen is quite sharp. While colours are a bit muted, viewing angles are very good.

On the other hand, it"s disappointing lớn have sầu only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. That little RAM might be okay for the optimised Android Go UI, but a lot of apps will demvà more. As for storage, the dedicated microSD thẻ slot will let you add up lớn 128GB of storage, but that 8GB of internal storage will fill up very quickly. During our review process, we couldn"t even have all our standard benchmarking apps & demo files on the phone at the same time.

You get a 3000mAh battery, which should be fine since there"s no hardware lớn căng thẳng this phone. Quichồng charging is not supported. You can have sầu insert two 4G SIM cards, but only one of them will be able to work on a 4G network at any point. There"s single-b& Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.1, FM radio, và even GPS.


The single rear camera has an 8-megapx sensor with an f/2.0 aperture & it does tư vấn autofocus. The 5-megapixel front camera has an f/2.2 aperture. The đoạn phim recording resolution goes up to lớn 1080p for both.

Thankfully, Xiaomày hasn"t skimped too much so there is an ambient light sensor và the basic accelerometer & proximity sensors, but no gyroscope or compass. If you want to stream video clip on the go, keep in mind that this phone supports only Widevine L3 DRM, not L1, which means you"ll be limited to non-HD-quality video in apps lượt thích Netflix. There"s also no fingerprint sensor or face recognition.

Xiaongươi has chosen to adopt Android Go, but we still have sầu the Android 8.1 version, rather than Android 9 Pie (Go Edition). This means that it runs better with less RAM, and requires less of the phone"s storage space for itself. Google has optimised several of its own apps, so you"ll see YouTube Go, Maps Go, Gmail Go, and Assistant Go in addition to lớn a Google Go tiện ích. You still get the regular versions of Chrome and Google Photos though.

The Google Go app is somewhat like a home screen in itself. You get quick shortcuts lớn Google"s text, photo lớn, voice, và GIF search tools as well as a tìm kiếm bar at the bottom of the screen where your thumbs should be. Search results open within this ứng dụng, making it something of a Web browser too.

A large Play button in the centre of the toolbar makes the ứng dụng read the content of a Web page out loud, in Google Assistant"s voice. This seems khổng lồ be something that non-tech-savvy users can take advantage of. The Google Go ứng dụng also lets you choose various optimised third-party ứng dụng shortcuts lớn display (including one for 360), though these sometimes led to lớn the respective services" Web pages.

There"s an Android Go version of the Google search bar on the Redmi Go"s trang chính screen. This bar lets you launch the Google Go app with a single touch, và also displays trending search terms in a non-stop animation that can get distracting after a while. Thankfully you can replace it with the standard Chrome search widget.

Although Android Go is optimised for smartphones with entry-cấp độ hardware, Xiaomày still decided that this phone needs the custom Mint launcher rather than the stoông chồng Android UI. The launcher is relatively clean và gives you several customisation options for the homescreens và tiện ích drawer. You can change icon form size and spacing, group apps by type in the app drawer, change scroll effects, hide ứng dụng icons, và loông xã the layout. Interestingly, this is the same launcher that we saw on the Poco F1(Review).

Xiaomày has preloaded Amazon Shopping và Facebook Lite on this phone, in addition to lớn the unnecessary Mint Browser, & its own Music, Mi Drop, Mi Community, and Cleaner apps. These aren"t intrusive sầu, so we wouldn"t have minded if storage space hadn"t been so limited.


Redngươi Go performance, cameras, và battery life

The Redmày Go"s hardware is just about enough for very basic smartphone usage. The processor is decent, but having just 1GB of RAM is a bottleneông chồng. We saw occasional pauses when doing simple things lượt thích opening a menu in an tiện ích, or scrolling through a heavy ứng dụng lượt thích the Google Play Store. It also took a while for apps khổng lồ load even if they were running just a short while before. Sometimes, the UI animations when opening & closing apps also stuttered a little. However, on the whole, usage was much more pleasant than we had expected from a sub-Rs. 5,000 phone.

The Go apps have sầu some interesting functionality. YouTube Go shows exactly how much data each đoạn phim will consume before you play it, and you can force a lower or higher chất lượng if you like. You can also quickly save some videos so you can play them again & again without consuming more data. Maps Go has quiông xã shortcuts for directions including routes optimised for two-wheelers. Go apps are supposed to launch in less than five sầu seconds, & this generally was the case.

Fresh out of its box, our Redmày Go Reviews unit had just 58 percent of its 8GB of storage space không tính tiền for us to lớn use. You probably won"t have sầu large games installed since they just won"t run. Still, we think most buyers will need khổng lồ pick up a microSD card for all their truyền thông media storage requirements.

We tried PUBG điện thoại & Asphalternative text 9: Legends in our gaming performance nhận xét of the Redmi Go, but neither one was compatible. Asphalternative text 8: Airborne did run, but with effects disabled, & was surprisingly playable. For more details, vì chưng kiểm tra out Redngươi Go gaming performance nhận xét. We also tried a few casual games — running in Temple Run 2 was perfectly smooth, although there was momentary stutter when loading maps. Unfortunately Giant Boulder of Death did not recognise us tilting the phone, most likely due to the lachồng of a gyroscope. It also did not detect this và failed lớn default khổng lồ using on-screen controls.

The Redmày Go scored just 29,782 points in AnTuTu, placing it well behind even the Redmày 6A, which managed 61,053 points, & the Asus ZenFone Lite L1(Review) with its score of 55,690. Geekbench"s single-core & multi-core demo results were 634 and 1,589 points respectively. Many of GFXBench"s thử nghiệm scenes wouldn"t run, but the basic T-Rex kiểm tra did give us a disappointing 13fps. We also got only 6,933 points in 3DMark"s Ice Storm test.


Low-cost phones generally don"t have sầu great cameras, & the Redmi Go isn"t an exception. The app is completely bare-bones, with no extras or options apart from HDR & some basic colour filters. A manual mode lets you phối the Trắng balance, ISO, shutter speed, & focus. There isn"t even a panorama mode, much less a portrait mode.

The photos we took in bright daylight came out looking decent enough on the phone"s screen, though not as vibrant as we had expected. When checked at full kích cỡ on a computer screen, the good news is that colours popped a lot more, but the quality was clearly lacking. Textures seemed artificial, the edges of objects weren"t always well defined, & there was just not a lot of discernible detail. The camera did a reasonable job when shooting against the light, but HDR isn"t automatic và causes slight shutter lag. Even low-over phone cameras these days usually vị well with close-ups, but we didn"t find that to be the case with the Redmi Go.

As for shots taken in the dark, many of our samples came out looking noisy và grainy. Objects were poorly defined & there was of course quite a bit of motion blur with moving objects. On the positive side, our shots were usually bright enough for objects to lớn be made out, even if they didn"t look great. You might be able to lớn get away with sharing photos taken by the Redmày Go on social media & through messaging apps, but that"s it.

Video is jerky & there"s quite a bit of focus hunting. The chất lượng is just about okay at 1080p. Again, you wouldn"t want lớn rely on the Redmi Go to lớn capture precious memories, but it isn"t completely unusable. You get basic beautification with the front camera, but unique is just bare-basic.

The 3000mAh battery was enough khổng lồ comfortably get us through a day, though we kept usage light. We took lots of photos & a few videos, flipped through some social truyền thông media, played basic games, and watched some YouTube videos, & we didn"t have to lớn charge the phone till the next morning. Our HD đoạn Clip loop test ran for a decent 9 hours, 50 minutes.

VerdictThe Redngươi Go isn"t as attention-grabbing as Xiaomi"s slightly higher priced offerings. However, tt still offers relatively good hardware for the price, which is a big win for people with very tight budgets or very simple needs. We just wish that there was at least an option with more RAM & storage space.

There aren"t a lot of competitors that can match these specifications at this price, but Hãng Asus does offer a compelling alternative sầu with its ZenFone Lite L1(Review). Officially launched at Rs. 6,999, this phone regularly and repeatedly goes on sale for as little as Rs. 4,999 on Flipkart. For just Rs. 500 more than the Redmày Go, you get the more powerful Snaprồng 430 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, và a few other conveniences.

That also brings up the point that if you can spover even a little bit more, you should consider phones such as the Redmày 6A(Review), which will perkhung better & last you longer.
