Phoenix OS is quite good

On the Phoenix OS emulator, there is a 360 App Store developed in China, which is difficult to use because it has the Chinese language. Sorry, there are no Google apps like Google Play Store, Gmail, Chrome etc. If you want to install the app, you can download it, for example, in the Mirror. However, you cannot run an application that requires Google Play Services because this application is not available by default.

The default application is available without problems if it is resized and full screen, but some applications are installed by yourself, sometimes do not support resizing to text and looking. erratic. So if you encounter that situation, you only need to restart the application so that it looks normal again.

What is Phoenix OS?

Phoenix OS is an Android operating system that replaces your PC. And like your Android-based Emulator (emulator), you can customize this operating system to perfectly fit your needs on the computer. And it is quite different from NoxPlayer Emulator 6 or BlueStacks Software 4.

It supports both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, can install the entire operating system with a USB drive or in your hard drive. And since it’s based on Android, it can support millions of mainstream Android apps.

This operating system also supports multitasking with multi-window design, window drag, and title bar. It also supports classification file management, file decompression, and LAN mouse access. And the shortcuts you are familiar with can also be used with this operating system.

1. Requirements and steps to use

Phoenix OS is quite easy to use. Here are some basic installation steps. Start by plugging in a USB flash drive with a capacity of at least 4GB. Save important data because unsaved information will be deleted a few steps later.

3. Errors of this Android emulator

Many people have commented that this software is a bit similar to the Remix operating system for PC. Some say that Phoenix OS is basically a heavily modified version of Android ™ 5.1 Lollipop. The user has reported a problem with resizing the browser window. Fonts are usually not adjustable until the user refreshes the website. Also, after a window is resized, it is difficult to drag and drop it into a new position on the screen.

4. Advantages of the new Phoenix OS

Phoenix OS is very flexible, user-friendly and doesn’t waste much on your computer. It has all the different features to separate from other alternatives and you may notice that I am constantly referring to the Remix operating system. Program window management, installation manager, default file selection and other important functions have all been updated and improved. Phoenix OS has no problems running on devices with USB 2.0 ports. You can even take your flash drive and install it on a completely different computer. Your installation and application will remain there for good use.

Conclusion about Phoenix OS on Windows

Unlike Remix operating system, it requires 8GB USB Flash with USB 3.0. You can try the Phoenix operating system and run on regular USB Flash with a minimum of 4GB USB 2 port.

When booting on the Remix operating system you can choose Guest mode or user mode. Guest mode means that any changes you make on your computer will not be saved. User mode will automatically be saved each time, meaning your login account or the application you saved will remain there when you restart or restart. By default, Phoenix OS will run user mode.

Remix operating system developers have released their own hardware like their own tablets and laptops. The founder himself was founded by 3 former employees of Google. Remix OS seems more promising, they will ensure that all Google applications run perfectly on the Remix operating system.
