Looking at the device specifications, it’s clear that Redmi is targeting those users who still use feature phones and haven’t made the transition to the Smartphone Category. Overall the specs are decent for the price. Android GO is a project by Google to bring in the latest software to the low budget smartphones. Google Play Store already has to go edition of most famous Google apps. These apps are meant to be light on RAM usage and take less storage space than regular apps. There are already many smartphones in the market with Android GO and low-end specifications but what sets Redmi apart is its strong foothold in the Indian market.
