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.

RE: LineageOS + refurb

I've tried to "upcycle" a couple of S4 Active phones that way (using CyanogenMod; this was a few years ago) and both ended up with horrible screen burn-in after a few months of use. A screen swap cost more than the phones were worth so I dropped the project.

One of the reasons I'm happy to stick with an iPhone 7 is fear of the iPhone X having burn in issues. Every OLED device I've ever owned has eventually suffered that fate, though the S4 Active was by far the worst.
