Turn your Android smartphone into a full Computer

Turn your Android smartphone into a full fledged Computer

Turn your Android smartphone into a full Computer

The evolution of smartphones has been fast and furious. Their processors are faster and more powerful than ever before. Storage size has increased, and with Android, you can have even more when you install a memory card.
These advancements in technology have made smartphones powerful enough to handle the workload of a desktop computer. Some key factors keeping people from doing this are the phones' small screen, and the lack of a mouse and full-size keyboard.

All that you have to do is attach your smartphone  to a TV/Monitor and plug in a keyboard and mouse and voila you have a full-fledged portable PC.

Most Android smartphones today are more powerful than we give them credit for.
You use your phone for email, you type up notes, you probably do some image editing, you play games — and so much more. For all intents and purposes, this smartphone sitting in your pocket is a personal computer. It’s arguably as powerful as many devices sitting on desks in offices around the world. So why not use it to replace your desktop PC?

Micro USB to HDMI

Bluetooth Multi-device Keyboard

Andronium OS


The Andronium OS will turn your Android gadget into a fully functional computer by attaching it to the SuperBook, which I'll detail later. Andronium OS is actually an app instead of an entirely new OS. This is great because you will not need to root your phone.
Instead, you only have to download it from Google Play and use it like any other app. It is currently for a limited time free public beta. Click here to download the app.
The Andronium OS app creates a desktop environment that allows you to use all of your smartphone apps on a bigger screen.
Your Android phone must meet these requirements to use Andronium OS:
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Lollipop 5.0 or newer operating system
Now that you know about the OS

What you need

  1. A display monitor with HDMI support
  2. A casting device (like Google Chromecast), or a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) cable and an HDMI cable
  3. Mobile apps like Sentio Desktop and Null Keyboard
  4. A Bluetooth keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse, or a USB OTG hub if the keyboard and mouse are USB-driven
  5. A smartphone
Andromium OS was initially launched 18 months ago and rather than being an entirely new operating system necessitating you to root your Android smartphone, it is in fact just an app which you can download from the Google Play Store and install on any Android smartphone.
The goal is to get the software to work with as many Android smartphones as possible (though there are limitations) offering features like windowed apps, a Windows-like start menu and drag-and-drop icons on the desktop.

After setup, download your smartphone desired applications and start using it just like a computer. However, keep in mind that your smartphone cannot match the strength of an actual computer. Also, Sentio Desktop cannot equal an authentic Windows or Mac OS. This setup is a cost-effective temporary alternative when your computer is not available or it’s not working.
