Here we are going to give a detailed review of the Redmi GO.
Display & Design
Redmi GO comes with a 5 inches IPS LCD display with HD resolution. The smartphone comes with a sleek design with the metallic casing at the back which visualizes staggering. The display quality is good at this price range but the16:9 screen with thick bezels make the look of the smartphone old.
The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core Chipset with a clock speed of up to 1.4 GHz. The device comes with an Adreno 308 GPU with a speed of 500 MHz. The performance will decent for daily usage but you cannot play heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9.
In a camera department, we cannot expect too much at this price range. The smartphone has an 8 MP camera sensor at the backside of aperture f/2.0. It has only a single LED flash but has other modes like HDR and smart scenes. Talking, about selfie camera the smartphone comes with a 5 MP sensor of aperture f/2.2. You do not get any dedicated LED flash for a selfie. It has HDR mode and beautifies profiles. The camera performance of both the rear and front camera is decent yet comparing the price range we cannot say too much.

I think Redmi GO is an overpriced phone yet it is a Redmi cheapest smartphone but if we talk about the overall smartphone market then it is really lacking in competitive specs. By adding 500 to 1000 Rupees you can get the options like Asus Zenfone Lite L1 and 10.0r.E.
