Afterword

Is that all, you ask? Most of the presented Windows-based devices are released by Microsoft, so the choice is small, except for models of past seasons. At the same time, other manufacturers offer their products, such as Alcatel Fierce XL, Acer Jade Primo, HP Elite x3 … But it is impossible to say for sure.

By the way, some devices support installing Windows. These include, for example, Xiaomi Mi4, but installing the firmware is not the easiest.
