    Android 6.0 is old.
    Now the current release is 7.1.2.

    How does this compare against Anbox?
    How does this compare against the Android 7.1.1 VM images for x86 and x86_64 that is provided in Android Studio?

      Android on x86(-64) is for me a Black Screen .... I try many Systems and it has most of the time the same result. Once i get a better one. But due to known Problems with the Realtek Platform Chip Wlan, BT, SDSlot, Audio didn't work.

        Thats not important if the Security Patches are applied

        Native Running Android is much much faster. But this is due to no GPU Support in the VMs.

          So, i tested the new Version of android x86 and remix os. The 64bit Version fails to boot in both cases but the 32bit Version of remixos works. For testing i use a Acer Aspire 6920 ( 4GB Ram and AMD Radeon Mobile 3650 ) Standby is not correct working. After the wake up the keyboard, touchpad, mice, BT is not working. H264 Video Playback is not working and software based decoders are extremly slow

            I've tried the native on Atom development board and tablet. When starting apps, it's like a CRT mode switch, the whole screen stays blank for quite long. The usability is totally crap.

                4.4 is old, I would love to update my old LG G2 to 6.0 without needing Windows

                  Im installing new and new version and games compatibility issues are the still same (lots of games crashing during start), lots of games are not working, no games apps working much smoother.

                    It works, for the most part, what is most annoying - zero support for mini-pcie cellular broadband modems. Kernel contains the drivers (visible in dmesg), Android should have the necessary cellular support etc..
