With Android Go, budget phones got a second chance at life. And among those budget phones, the Xiaomi Redmi Go and the Galaxy A2 Core were particularly interesting ones. However, the Redmi Go did outshine the A2 Core in some aspects. And now, that same phone is available with larger storage.
The Redmi Go was already available in two memory variants in other markets. But, it is only now launching in Nepal with larger storage, i.e. 16 GB. However, all the other aspects remain the same.
The Redmi Go has a 5″ screen with HD resolution. It features an 8 MP camera at the back and a 5 MP selfie shooter up front. This phone runs on the Snapdragon 425 and is supported by 1 GB RAM. The battery capacity is a 3000 mAh, which is decent enough for budget phones. So, the only thing that has been upgraded is the storage at 16 GB. Also, you have a microSD card slot which can support up to 128 GB.
This phone is priced at Rs. 9,999 in Nepal, while the 8 GB variant is priced at Rs. 8,999. So, which one do you think is the better value for money?
