but the specs is something they could follow that of the redmi 3 pro is almost the same price as that when android one launched. unless google aims to make it cheaper every time they release new ones
Android One seemed like Googles finest plans untill it RAN out of steam and the news.
It's simple, really.
If you really want to get the pure Android experiences, get a Nexus phone.
But, if you are on a budget, get the Android One phone.
I've been using one for 14 month, getting updates on time, wish it had 2 gigs of ram and a better camera
People commenting about android one phones needing to have great chips, great cameras, great displays and 3-4gb of ram... C'mon, android one is a program to make busget phones so everyone will have access to them. You can't expect a high end phone for 80 dollars.

It might be more expensive... The new Snapdragon 420 would be a good deal... but when you have Mediatek... It could be the "higher-end" choice

If they did that , It would completely lose it's main purpose , also that would basically just be like making a Nexus
Why do they bother to make new phones on this program?. Just hijack existing ones. Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro GPE/AOE would be great

And Probably you know that there's a Android one phone called GM5 plus with Snapdragon 617 and priced at $300 with really nice features..
Google can separate Nexus series for high end and mid end and Android one for low end and mid-end..that'll be great..

Release a Android one phone with a good Snapdragon processor,better camera and battery it'll be huge hit..Otherwise with low quality mediatek chips,worst cameras and worst battery backup it won't even have a chance..
sr777, 06 May 2016 I want a Samsung phone to be on Android One program. Actually, I feel Samsung would be better off having all their
They should be more aggressive with pricing to an extent on what they did with Nexus 5.
Moto of android one project is:
"Android for all"
Then there must be complete range of android one phones starting from 50 dollars to 300 dollars. For example 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 dollars android one smartphones. Then android one will available with almost all specifications for all.
