Finding a mobile as cheap as possible is common in those people who do not need to make frills with their phone. As they say, «I want it to send WhatsApp, make a call and little else«. The recommendations usually go to the most basic range, the one that is in the area of 100 euros. And of course, meet a Xiaomi Redmi Go tempts a lot.
The cheapest mobile of Xiaomi already in Spain: Redmi Go for 69 euros
For less than 70 euros you have the Xiaomi Redmi Go, a mobile limited and with Android Go. It is already on sale in Spain.
The Redmi go It is the cheapest of Xiaomi. And not only for the price, but also for the components: the economy of its hardware shows that the mobile will behave decently for the most basic use of the telephone; without forgetting the sporadic games or taking an acceptable photo provided there is enough light. For 69 euros is not bad.
One of the disadvantages of the Xiaomi Redmi Go is that brings Android Go as standard, the shortest version of the system. This implies a slower and more limited operation of all basic applications; without losing Google Maps, the Play store or Gmail, for example. And of course, having a Xiaomi with pure Android for 69 euros is very tempting. The question is: is there competition?

The "advantage" of Redmi go is that it offers a cut-out and matching system version with its hardware, which is just as fair. This is mandatory in all Android Go since they are mobile created for those who do not have enough resources to acquire a better smartphone.
