    I read a lot of different reports about Remix OS on the Cube i7 Book. I’d like to use this as dual boot next to Windows 10. As shown by Chris in the review video this will not be a problem but I also read some old reports that it runs hot and does not go into sleep and therefor drains the battery. So, I’m a bit confused about the current state of Remix OS together with the Cube i7 Book. Can I use this as a daily OS or not?

    Nope, you can’t cpu scaling not working with remixOS, system uses 100% of your cpu all the time.

    Unless you are linux/android guru and know how to fix it 🙂

    I don’t know you can ask from there

    Their head developer left remix os project, so there might not be any future updates. It’s not certain tough.

    Good to know, I was thinking to install it because, for my work, I need to register my devices so I can use their app and Memu is the only one I can register like a normal Android device.

    Android x86 is the most complete Android experience I’ve been able to get with this baby. It’s not perfect, but it works, mostly. I’ve tried Emulators like Bluestacks and Andy, and Android x86 still works the best in my opionion.

    The things that aren’t working, are the Microphone, and Rotation (the rotation can be manually changed with apps from the Play Store though).

    Hey guys can anyone help me with remix OS/ Android x86 installation on the cube i7 book? I really would love that, I’m feeling win 10 isn’t all that great as a solo tablet OS, I would like to have Android..

    I tried MEmu, but I feel it is a bit slow, I tried playing the game ‘ Alto’s Adventure ‘ on MEmu vs the native windows app, it ‘feels’ smoother ( no input lag ) on the native app, so I guess it would work better on the x86 ported android..

    Probably best to sell this tablet and get an android one.

    I agree. If you don’t like tablets with Windows the best thing is to sell it and buy an Android tablet.

    No.. don’t get me wrong… for working on the go and other demanding stuff, this tab is amazing, I do love it a lot! it’s a surface pro for 1/4th of the price :P. It’s just that my little brother loves android games, so I would like to know if a good android solution is possible on this…  And surely i’m never gonna sell this amazing device..

    Remix OS is incredibly easy to install using the application distributed with the ISO. You even don’t need a seperate partition, just run the app from Windows. You’ll need a keyboard to switch to Android to switch to Android and back in th Grub menu though.

    Most emulators are also easy to install. I thought I need a dual boot tablet before I got this one, now I very rarely turn on the emu for a few apps not available for Windows 10.

    For just games you can easily use emulators. Memu says it’s good for games.
