Even though smartphones are very much affordable these days, there might be some occasions that make running the Android OS (Operating System) more comfortable on a PC. For example, if you are a digital marketer, then you should have known that the features of some social media cannot be unlocked from the browser mode. And if you are an app developer, comparing your work with apps will be easier if you do it from your computer.
In this article, we’ll review the three best Android emulators so that your job will be much quicker.
The best feature of MEMU is that it enables you to create multiple devices from your computer. You can use it either for fun or business. For instance, if you are selling goods with different categories, selling them under several focused accounts will be your best bet. And if you can do this from your PC, why waste your money on buying new gadgets?
Besides, MEMU does not consume too much resource from your computer. If your PC has 2GB RAM, it is good to go with MEMU. This emulator is best for you if you want to use the Android OS for productivity.
This OS is perfect for you if you are a tech geek who likes to tweak apps. Created with the x86 architecture, GenyMotion is the fastest emulator in its class. It also has many simulated devices, such as LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, Google, and HTC. You do not need to worry about the OS of your PC too since GenyMotion is compatible with Windows, Linux, and macOS.
However, this OS is not without some cons. First, its user interface might be a bit complicated for non-tech-wise. Second, users have reported some issues with the excruciating low-fi audio. Third, the free version’s features are limited. If you want to use this emulator for app development, you’ve got to subscribe to premium.
We put BlueStacks as the third option because it accommodates both pro and beginner Android enthusiasts who want the OS to run on their PC. It is effortless to install, and it has a friendly user interface. You do not need to register or to subscribe to anything to experience the full features of BlueStacks. Therefore, it will be your best choice if you just want to play your favorite Android games on PC.
However, the drawbacks of BlueStacks is that it will be laggy and slow if you only have 2GB RAM and old CPU. Occasional crashes also still happen even if you run this OS on a PC with decent specs.
