Prime OS Review an Indian Android Emulator for Playing PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty

by June 30, 2020 0 comments

If you haven’t heard of Prime OS then you’re not alone. It’s a new android emulator that is very different from what most users including myself are used to. Most android emulators function on your laptop or desktop as a virtual machine that runs on top of Windows. Prime OS is very different from them. Prime OS is more like Chrome OS without limited functions. It runs separately from windows. Prime OS offers users something that no other android emulator is offering right now. That is to use the Android OS as a fully functioning replacement for Windows on desktops. Prime OS offers users an experience that is as close as to windows. 

To install Prime OS:

  • Get the Prime OS installer from their website by going on here. 
  • Launch the exe program and choose the drive from which you want to make a partition for PrimeOS.
  • Input the space in MB for the new PrimeOS partition.
  • Proceed to installation.
  • Note: Ignore all the cmd and disk manager pop-ups for formatting the new partition.
  • The system will restart and the installation process will begin.
  • After installation, you will have the boot menu for both PrimeOS and Windows.

The installation of Prime Os is exactly similar to windows. Additionally, the Prime OS also has a PDF file on their website that will guide you in the installation process. Once installed you can boot up your system on Prime OS and use Android just as you would use Windows. 

How is User Experience on Prime OS? 

After using Prime OS as a proper replacement of windows I have to say it was quite interesting. The biggest problem I faced while using an Android system as my main driver instead of windows was the app functionality. Unlike Windows apps and software Android apps are not optimized for keyboard and mouse input. So using apps like Whatsapp for android or Instagram did give me a lot of problems that I don’t have to face when using windows. Prime OS does offer features like a start button and a taskbar on the screen but all that becomes useless if the apps don’t support a desktop. 

When it comes to running games like PUBG Mobile or Garena Free Fire or Call of Duty Mobile I was able to play all of them flawlessly. PUBG Mobile ran great and fast than I had ever seen it run in any other android emulator. Maybe it has something to do with the Prime OS running separately from Windows rather than on top of it. For the gamers, there is keymapping available for all of these games.  

For the developers out there who want to test apps, the Prime OS is something they should definitely look into. For people who have an old laptop that they might not use a lot or an old PC, the Prime OS can be the operating system on that. Prime OS is lightweight and offers android as a real operating system option to the users. 

Prime OS vs Ubuntu?

If you need to choose between Prime OS or Ubuntu as your other operating system then the obvious choice is Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a proper desktop operating system that offers a lot of functionality and practicality than android on desktops. Choose Prime OS only if you want a proper android experience on a desktop.
