Can You Play Mobile Legends Bang Bang on Android Go Smartphone with 1GB RAM?

From what I observe, there are two things that are seemingly rising simultaneously in the tech scene here in the Philippines.

1. Mobile Legends Players
2. Android Go Smartphones

The first one is pretty obvious. Everywhere we go - malls, cafes, smoking areas, parking lots, name it, we see Pinoys playing this highly addictive game. And as many of you know, I am just as hooked as the rest of you. Heck, even inside the LRT, a bus, or a jeepney, we can't stop slaying enemy heroes to win.

The second, on the other hand, is largely caused by Cherry Mobile's recent decision to release more smartphones with modest technical specifications running the light-weight Android Go Edition operating system. As one of the country's best-selling handset brands, Cherry Mobile can definitely influence the market and affect the mobile experience of Filipinos especially their millions of followers.

Last Month - May 2019, Cherry Mobile officially launched a new Android Go smartphone named Flare Y7 LTE, which looks downright good-looking with its glass sandwich look and all-screen face.

This 4G LTE enabled handset features a 6.2-inch HD+ 19:9 IPS display, a 13 MegaPixel rear camera, a 5 MP Selfie snapper in front, and a 2,800 mAh battery pack. Inside, it runs Android Oreo Go Edition OS with its Quad Core processor from MediaTek, has just 1GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes with 8GB of expandable storage.

Needless to say, it has modest technical specifications. However, considering that it only sells for PHP 4,299, I think Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 LTE is all good.

Mobile Legends Android Go

I got my review unit from the company a few days ago and the first thing I did on it is to install Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

Frankly, I'm used to playing this title on my more powerful Android smartphones, including the beastly Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus, so I wasn't sure if it would even run on this Android Go handset with just a Gig of RAM.

I was pleasantly surprised when I launched the game and my Flare Y7 LTE ran it with no bothersome issues! It worked and it still does!

Sure, I had to set the Graphics to Low and to turn off HD display -- but in the end, I was able to get a decent Mobile Legends Bang Bang game-play experience on this smartphone replete with humble specs. It's not the smoothest but it's not terrible at all.

The game ate around 1.5GB off the phone's storage, which is not bad. I simply installed Lite versions  of Facebook, Firefox, and Twitter to minimize my ROM usage. If I need to, I can always transfer the game to a microSD card eventually.

So there. If you're wondering if Mobile Legends and Android Go can go well together, I guess this post pretty much answers the question.
