How To Install Android Apps on Windows 10 Mobile

One of the most requested videos to make as of late was a tutorial on how to install Android apps on Windows 10 Mobile. The process is fairly simple, so I made a tutorial video on it.

Currently, Android apps on Windows 10 Mobile, known as Project Astoria, is only available on the following devices:

  • Nokia Lumia 435
  • Nokia Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM variant)
  • Nokia Lumia 730
  • Nokia Lumia 820
  • Nokia Lumia 830
  • Nokia Lumia 920
  • Nokia Lumia 925
  • Nokia Lumia 928
  • Nokia Lumia 929 (Icon)
  • Nokia Lumia 930
  • Nokia Lumia 1520

I really have no idea how they came up with this list of devices. Sure, the flagship combo is there, which is the Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB RAM hardware configuration. It looks like 1 GB of RAM is a requirement, which is understandable, considering that it works with an emulator.

But why does the Lumia 730 work and not the Lumia 735? If the Snapdragon 400 and 1 GB of RAM combo works, why not the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL? I’ve reached out to Microsoft about this.
