There are now X86 powered handsets. How come there isn't a comunity getting Windows or even PC apps in general running on these? I would imagine that if you can run Wine on Android, you would be able to "play" a lot of older PC games om the thing if it has 2 GB of RAM and a dual-core Intel CPU. I use the term "play" loosely though with a touch screen that small.


Still, where are all the enthusiasts? You wouldn't even need a shitty slow X86 translator!

And... if you plug an USB-on-the-Go adapter into the phone, and an USB KVM switch into that, you can connect full keyboard and mouse. Then output via HDMI to a larger screen :)

Woah, thread necro!

Hello new person!


I'm an Android person myself, wouldn't use an iPhone unless I had to.


Most new drones that I've seen just come with an app that you install on your phones, most of them support Android and Apple.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

And on the subject of this thread, I now would never use a OnePLus due to the aggressive privacy invading telemetry - https://www.chrisdcm...plus-analytics/


And have now been forced to enable to disabling of said option, which should have never been on in the first place - https://fossbytes.co...-users-disable/

Well, it should be still enough for (voice) chat. But without security updates it surely would not be yours for long.

I recommend this. Kick-ass specs for the price, and you can (and should) put Lineage OS on it. It has official LOS support, and that means regular system updates. Coupled with a bloatware-free experience and the plentiful amount of memory (4GB) and NAND (64GB), as well as a MicroSD card slot, you can't go wrong for $160.

Sure the camera isn't the best in the world, but it is good enough. And ASUS didn't follow the brain-damaged trend of taking away the headphone jack that so many vendors are now doing (not just Apple!).

@Kano, its got an Intel Atom cpu and those CPU on laptops and mini PC's were never that well received. That and its old tech now, a Galaxy S6 utterly smokes it - which can be had for the same money -




That said the ZF2 is vastly easier to take apart when you want to replace the battery, which is a big plus in book -
