TECNO-Remix OS partnership to change productivity on DroidPCs


Android is arguably the world’s most used operating system (OS) with over 1.6 million mobile apps at the fingertips of users. Yet many still consider it to be best suited for consuming content rather than creating content – an all play, no work platform. When it comes to PC-level productivity most people rely on the Windows or Mac operating systems that traditionally power the desktops and notebooks that we use to get real computing tasks done. So, simply put for most people, productivity should have a desktop feel to it.

Remix OS combines Android ecosystem with desktop productivity features

This mobile operating system is an enhanced version of Android OS, a brainchild of the Beijing-based company Jide Technology founded by three ex-Google engineers.

Remix OS combines the familiarity and power of a desktop operating system with all of the apps in the Google Play Store

Remix OS is designed to be familiar to desktop or laptop users; there is an actual “Start menu” for your apps, a taskbar interface, the ability to have multiple resizeable windows, and all the keyboard shortcuts that you are used to on a PC. Not only that, mouse maneuvers like Drag-and-dropping a file from one folder to another are included and finally – wait for it – there’s an advanced file manager that even has a familiar “Recycle Bin”-type folder.
