Why Android Go is a game-changer for cheap smartphones - A hands-on test with a Nokia 1 running Android 8.1 Go
Google recently launched its Android 8.1 Go operating system, designed specifically for smartphones with low-end specifications. The streamlined OS retains the interface and core features of Android 8.1, but reduces it install size for devices with small storage capacities. Google said Android Go also offers better performance, data savings, and overhauled applications for affordable smartphones.
One of the first entry-level smartphones to ship with the operating system is the Nokia 1, which is priced at R999 (about US$81) in South Africa.
