When we speak of converting a mobile into a PC not to talk of doing it physically, obviously this is not possible. Now, yes there are certain applications or modifications to that on our Android device we can run a software more own PC.
In this case a few days ago, we were talking about Superbook, a dock (that looks like a laptop) that is able to function thanks to the power of a mobile. This project uses Andromium OS, an Android modified that reminds a lot of Remix OS, the operating system that has the Remix Mini. The particularity of Andromium OS is that it has a desktop interface (task bar, windows, manager, files, advanced, and even minesweeper on the desktop), but is compatible with any Android phone.
How to turn your phone into a PC with Andromium OS?
In the first place you should know that Andromium OS takes you in beta for quite some time and anyone who meets these requirements, you can test the software on your phone:
- Phone with Snapdragon 800 or higher.
- 2 GB RAM
- external Monitor with FullHD resolution.
- Android 4.4.2 or higher.
- Chromecast, Miracast, Dock, MHL output and USB OTG to connect a keyboard and a mouse.
- Have the mobile charged while testing Andromium OS.
The truth is that there are not too many requirements, but its creators recommend a mobile powerful enough to move with fluidity although in the case of the Superbook requirements have gone down a lot and is a must to have a mobile with 1 GB of RAM and Android 5.0 or higher.
you Should know that once you make sure you fulfill the specifications you have to download the application from Google Play, open and ready. You will enjoy a desktop interface on your Android phone, an interface that works quite well and for that you will need only one application.

Obviously the keyboard and mouse are recommended to give a use classic desktop and both the MHL output as the Chromecast are recommended to enjoy this Android on a bigger screen. Yes, in case you have a tablet you can also be enough screen to enjoy a Android desktop and only have a keyboard and a mouse may be more valid. What do you think of the idea?
