Some great additional suggestions in the comments guys, including Nox and Phoenix OS, installing Bliss x86, Lineage OS or Android x86 on a dual boot partition, casting your game from your phone to a smart TV or Chromecast, or using Samsung DeX or Huawei's desktop mode.

how about a tutorial for android as the main OS rather than on virtual or emulators. Also isn't remix os dead?

Which Android emulator for Windows can use Bluetooth right? I need to use Bluetooth with an app that only exists on Android, and i was born into the Windows Master Race, which obviously means my phone is Windows Phone, yes suck it you android nerds it's still the best phone. But anyway back to topic, which android emulator can use bluetooth on PC?

Hello, I need help! i have a camera, that runs ONLY when i plug it to an android smart phone, it draws it's power from the phone, and as it does not have it's own screen, you also view it's field through the Phone. and it can only be ran through an application from the play store. with no applications to run it on PC... I need to run that Camera on a PC, the camera provides a 384 x 288 @ 8.9 Hz. has a power consumption of < 0.5W @ 5Volts. So, i only need to do that, i don't need to run another application, no games, nothing else, if the solution, about a year ago i tried some sort of an android device setup, the device worked, but, when i plugged the camera via USB to the PC, the virtual android did not see the camera! Please please Help, this is my e-mail: shamel_bazoqa@hotmail.com

As Chrome book are running Android OS can we buy that software to install on a PC? I cannot risk Windows 10 anymore on my PC's as they have done two forced updates which corrupted my latest most powerful PC twice hence it's standing idle as the last forced updates locked my Hard Drive. Fortunately I have three other XP PC's which are running moderately well. Any links to where I can purchase Android Desktop for PC's will be most appreciated.

The games for phones remind me of the earliest games on computers. I had a Commodore 64 , peeked & poked some games, a Playstation and a Nintendo 64 . The games were good for the 80s but it surprises me that things haven't moved on when we have Smartphones which I use to make calls and Bluetooth Control.

Are you familiar with windows 10? Snapchat stopped working on all the android emulators like bluestacks, nox, memu and windroy I beleive through windows 10. Snapchat still works on my tablet or any mobile device but just not on an android emulator through windows 10. Also I tried with aptoide but I heard it's a peice of crap because it contains malware. Does anybody know a way of how I can check all of my apps through Windows 10 android emulator including Snapchat just like how I would through a mobile device? When I'm on the computer, I prefer not to switch devices to check certain sites and accounts.

What is a suitable hardware / architecture for installing android directly, apart from the usual hardware? Perhaps, installing it on a single board PC suitable for it. An emulator adds a drag to the overall performance of the OS.
Juniper Lemuel Jingco (7 months ago)
No! Your computer sucks. Any emulator will run fine with no lag on a decent CPU

I've tested some of Android emulators and I find Nox is the best (at least for me) in term of performance Bluestacks 3 / N is second best, why you may ask? I only have 4GB of RAM and Bluestacks is not running smooth on 4GB RAM, the game will run really smooth (a lot smoother than Nox, I play Honkai Impact 3 with 720p and Full High settings and it's smooth... with Nox, I need to disable some effects to get it running smoothly) but it makes your Host OS become slower MEmu, it's more or less the same as Nox but not better. I have a sound stuttering problem with MEmu AVD... there's no point installing Android SDK just for playing an Android game Andyroid... it's seems no longer maintaned by the developer Remix OS, sadly this one is no longer maintaned by the developer... but I'm pretty sure Remix OS' performance is better than any Android emulators out there (I know, it's not an Emulator, but a full OS) Phoenix OS, haven't tested it but I'm sure it's the same as Remix OS... because both also based on Android-x86

Nox player is the bet so far.. it can run action game with no lag.. My phone was not compatible with pubg .. I used bluestack and it was worse experience ever then I switched to nox and I was amazed at how smooth it was .. I was playing at medium setting @30-60fps whereas in bluestack it didn't even open properly

Remix OS has been dead since last summer. I would not recommend installing it. Use Phoenix OS instead, as it replicates some of the best features of Remix but seems more stable.

best emulator to install on a win 10 tab ?
Parker Brooks (8 months ago)
#1 slow #2 NOT recommended Booting the system with a real version Remix OS (not emulator or virtual machine) I found gave the fastest performance. But if you really wanted a fast version of Android but a "PC experience", it's best to just connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to your phone and download a desktop UI PlayStore app.

Adrian Morales (8 months ago)
I spent the entire Summer of 2017 trying to run android on my fairly new Windows 10 device, and I can tell you that RemixOS is the ONLY viable option. Those emulators are nothing more than adwares that barely run correctly. Virtual machines require that you fiddle with your device's BIOS, which you shouldn't do, not for something like this. They're not that better, either. RemixOS, on the other hand, installs just like any piece of software out there, without any hassle whatsoever. Just make sure you have at least 32GB of empty space on your drive. That's it. The best best part is that EVERYTHING is done AUTOMATICALLY, from the creation of a suitable partition to setting-up a dual-boot into either Windows or RemixOS. Sadly, the OS has been discontinued, and as the android platform continues to evolve, certain apps don't work properly. Still, at this point in time, it's the only way to enjoy the best of two worlds. PS: The is also PhoenixOS, which is meant to continue the legacy of RemixOS, but it doesn't support Google play services and it's replete with ads. Stay way from it.

Isn't Andi s virus loaded emulator? I remember trying to install it once. So do some checking before running it.
Donald (8 months ago)
At the office they tried all that: bluestacks was crap Andy was a joke AVD needs almost a workstation's power Genymotion was mmmm Androidx86 (barebones or in VM) crashed any present day app RemixOS, no luck with the drivers (dusplay/bt/wifi/sensors) Last one mmmm.

i like seeing a fellow Sonic fan.. do you remember why on Sonic & Knuckles 3 Tails doesn't get "Super" when you get the 1st bunch of chaos emeralds?
Adam Sinicki (8 months ago)
Of course! You need the super emeralds too! Same for Knuckles. And Sonic goes Hyper Sonic which was awesome but has yet to make a comeback (Sonic Mania 2?). My Sonic knowledge runs deep 8-P

Can one get win10 installed on android devices?
Adam Sinicki (8 months ago)
I would doubt it. There is an ARM-supported version of Windows around so potentially with a bit of hacking, though I wouldn't expect a good experience. You can run Linux fairly well though (check out my vid!) or stream your PC to your Android PC (check out my other vid!).

Feroz Muhammed (8 months ago)
I've used the remix os and like it very much. But I couldn't have the screen resolution set to suit the external display I connected to my laptop. But still remix os is the best as I have tried all the emulators, I can firmly say that installing remix os on to your hard drive is the best option. Smooth and snappy Android experience.

so far no problem with nox on my end. runs better than bluestacks, and games i installed runs smoothly

You forgot to mention the option to fully install Android x86 on a partition with dual boot. This way is harder to setup, but provides the most native experience. I did this on a Surface Pro 3! I set it up to boot into android by default and then I could boot into windows when I felt like it too.
