This week, Google announced the release of Android 11 and its Go Edition. Android 11 Go is a one-liter version of the operating system, optimized for budget devices with up to 2 GB of RAM. It is faster, more secure, and uses less memory than regular Android apps. Android Go apps are lightweight versions of regular Google apps, consuming at least 50% less memory than their counterparts.
This makes them ideal for budget devices with limited RAM. Over the past two years, manufacturers have produced high-quality Android devices with features such as dual cameras or fingerprint scanners at more affordable prices. Android 11 has several features that make it stand out from previous versions. It uses AI intelligence to determine which five applications should be in your dock at any given time of day.
It also has fewer restrictions on applications, compatibility with third-party app stores, numerous hardware options, and web access to messages. Android 11 Go also has several advantages over its predecessor. Pre-installed or ready-to-use apps take up less space than regular apps, and the operating system itself consumes up to 522 megabytes of space compared to 80.4 megabytes for the Go version. However, there are some areas where Android 11 Go falls short compared to iOS.
Apple's customization tools in its latest versions of iOS are more advanced than what Google has achieved in Android 11.Additionally, Apple's Memoji still has more customization options than Android's version. Finally, Android widgets aren't as restricted as iOS widgets, so there's less consistency and more chances of clutter on home screens. Therefore, it is important to consider all these factors when deciding which version of Android is best for you.
