Mobile World Congress is happening this week, and we're slowly getting a better picture of what Google's new "Android Go" initiative will look like. Android Go is a special configuration of Android 8.1 (with a selection of special "Go" apps) that targets low-end devices with 1GB of RAM or less.

MWC has seen a ton of manufacturers sign up for the program and announce phones shipping with the Go config, so it's time for a hardware roundup.

We often tend to get tunnel vision and focus on expensive flagships, so here's a roundup of upcoming 100 dollar Android Go phones. These are neat little phones for a decent price.

in case of android it's mostly big apps that cause the bloat.

a lot of people say that you can still use android2 phone, but even the browser is barely usable.

maybe it works just for calling, or if you can find some legacy apk files for older (potentially insecure) software, but that's about it.
