I think Asus deserves some credit here as well for selling a 4GB RAM Intel Atom phone with dual SIM and SD card slot for comparable prices:

Of course, as usual, their own skin and who knows how long you get updates.




Forget updates, you can even run full-blown Windows 10 and Office on that beast. If only it came with Windows apps and drivers to use the phone-related features...

That's being done with KVM, so it's not really booting and running Win7 natively on the phone (the hardware is probably not close enough to a PC to be able to do this) but inside a VM.

You can find people running various other versions of Windows (and even MS-DOS) on an Android phone, again as a VM.
