Free Android Emulator Collections


I made a collection of free emulators including the abandoned ones. For high-end PC, I recommended Nox and Memu. For Low-end PC without VT support, I recommended, Droid4X, Nox and KOPlayer. For PUBG Players, I recommended Tencent Gaming Buddy.
Emulators that are only use for development are not listed

Note: XePlayer is fake Nox emulator. Andy OS Emulator mines bitcoin in background
