BEST AND LATEST ANDROID GO PHONES AND PRICES IN NIGERIA

Android Go is definitely here to fix inexpensive phones. These type of smartphones running these super optimised operating systems are called ‘Android Go phones‘. This post by NAIJAKNOWHOW is going to cover everything you need to know about the current Google operating system for Android, as well as the best Android Go phones and their latest prices for those looking to make a buying decision.

The Android Oreo (Go edition) was developed specifically for entry-level smartphones and comes pre-installed with stripped down, ‘offline-first’ versions of popular Google apps such as YouTube Go, Gmail Go and other “Gos”.

Android Go which Google would like us to refer to as “Android Oreo/Pie (Go Edition),” is meant to run on inexpensive, low-end devices: devices without much processing power, with limited amounts of RAM, and with a low amount of storage.

Android Go Edition

For those who don’t know how to manage data on their device, be aware that the Android Go is also meant for people with limited internet connectivity and expensive data plans that need to be carefully conserved.

To address these problems, Google has done three key things:

  • Make Android run better on phones with 1GB of RAM or less
  • Make Android (the OS itself) take up less space
  • Make Android’s preinstalled apps take up less space and use less data

Needless to say, the Go edition devices are targeted primarily at first-timers so, don’t expect all the bells and whistles of a mid to high-end smartphone.

With that said, I hope this helps you understand why phones running Android Go OS have low RAM and ROM?

Now let’s quickly delve right in. Here is a compilation for some of the best Android Go phones you should consider buying in Nigeria, and they’re in no particular order!
