Xiaomi launched its entry-level Redmi Go smartphone in India last month, priced at Rs 4,499. With this price tag, the Redmi Go is the cheapest Xiaomi device available in India. At this price range, it is quite natural to question the durability of the device you are about to buy. To allay any fears, Xiaomi has done a scratch test on the Redmi Go.

The Redmi Go was put through a scratch test involving the likes of a key, coin, knife, a nail, and a paper cutter. All these are used to scratch the display of the Redmi Go, and unsurprisingly, it comes out unharmed. In essence, if you were to put your Redmi Go in a pocket with keys and coins, you won t have to worry about your damaging the display. Also Read - Micromax 'In' smartphone details and specs revealed

While Xiaomi didn t make it official, the Redmi Go can reportedly survive an accidental drop in water. Earlier this month, a video surfaced online showing the smartphone being put through a water drop test. The video shows the Redmi Go being immersed in water for a minute, and despite that the camera and display work without any issue. There are also no signs of any effect on the speaker output of the smartphone after being submerged in water for a minute.

To prove that the smartphone is not water resistant, it was submerged for five minutes. At this point, the touchscreen and loudspeaker stop working. What this basically means is that the Redmi Go is likely to work even if you accidentally drop the phone in water and immediately pull it out.

As mentioned, the Redmi Go was launched in India with a price tag of Rs 4,499. It is available via Flipkart, and Xiaomi s mi.com.

The device is backed by a 3,000mAh battery that Xiaomi says is good enough for 12.5 hours of 4G calling, and up to 10 days of standby time.
