The Redmi Go is a disruptive entrant into the  4k-5k-rupee band -- and the ability of the buyer to flaunt a big name may be a clincher. In short, an ideal device to graduate from feature phones and starts one's smartphone journey.

The Redmi Go is one of the most affordable smartphones that covers all the basics right. It is phones like these that hold the potential to migrate feature phone users to the smartphone ecosystem. If more original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) take interest in such propositions, may be the migration process, which is currently abysmal, would pick up pace.

Redmi Go is Xiaomi's most affordable smartphone to date and even though I feel it's priced slightly higher than expectations, it boasts of some impressive hardware and software performance for the price. I know, memory and storage bottleneck can be a major qualm for some, but if we're talking about casual users here, then Redmi Go's HD display, lightweight Android Go experience, and dual cameras are worth all the money you'll be shelling out.

The Redmi Go is extremely easy to use unlike more costly phones. Overall the Redmi Go looks cute, offers great build and form factor and also handles the daily performance pretty well for the price it comes for. The specs and the performance the Redmi Go offers for the price are incredible. However, I  wish the software was cleaner and the cameras captured better pictures.

Given its price point and what you get, we were pleasantly surprised at what we could play on the Redmi Go. Unless you're hellbent on playing PUBG in some form, the Redmi Go can handle recent 3D graphics-intensive games at a smooth frame rate with few issues. You obviously won't get performance on par with flagship devices, but you're paying fraction of the cost, making it a fair trade off as long as you keep your expectations in check.
