Nox App Player Comments

Based on Android 4.4.x

Seems good, but as it is based on Android 4.4.2, it cannot run apps requiring a newer version of Android.

NB: Android 4.4, code name "KitKat" has been releasedin 2013, it is now three years old.

[Edited by norz, March 28]

MEmu can now run Android 5.1, and it doesn't have these annoyances:

  • bugs: can't search in some apps, even with soft keyboard enabled.
  • ads: play store balloon hanging from top of screen

Best Android emulator! i like the dark theme!

although i wish we could uninstall FB lite and get rid of ads

reply

You can.
Just ROOT the OS and install a "ROOT Uninstaller" app to remove all the "crapware"and the "AdAway" app to remove the ads..
