Redmi Go vs Nokia 1: Comparison

Xiaomi has today launched its most affordable smartphone in India – Redmi Go. The handset runs Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) and competes with other entry-level smartphones in the Indian smartphone market. Considering its price, the closest competitor of the Redmi Go is Nokia 1 which offers similar specifications. The Nokia 1 was launched way back in March 2018. But, even though the Nokia 1 is one year old, it offers similar performance and has a very similar specification sheet as the newly launched Redmi Go. It is fair that everyone has the Redmi Go vs Nokia 1 comparison on their minds.

It should be noted that both these smartphones are aimed for the first-time Android smartphone users so they offer specifications which proves ample for the simple day-to-day use. Nokia 1’s successor – Nokia 1 Plus –  has recently been launched at MWC 2019. Although some may argue that Nokia 1 Plus would have been a more eligible competitor for the Redmi Go, the smartphone has not been launched in India yet so we don’t know about its pricing details.
