Last December 2015, O+ announced 2 devices – O+ Notepad 4G with Intellipen and O+ Duo. The latter was initially overshadowed by the former’s bare specifications, but was later regarded as one of the best dual boot convertibles sold by local telcos. The market realized that both products cater to 2 distinct users: O+ Notepad 4G is for those who are after full productivity; while the O+ Duo is for those who are after casual fun and a little productivity like students and mobile gamers.
In this smart list review of O+ Duo, we are going to highlight the things we love about the device, and give you the things we also hate. Yes, no holds barred. We will also answer the question if you should buy this or Cherry Mobile’s MAIA Smart Tab.

1It Runs on Full Windows 10 Home
2It Runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop
3It Has a Free Keyboard Dock
464gb Internal Memory is just Perfect
5It has Micro HDMI port
There are many reasons why I want to have a portable dual boot device that has micro HDMI port. Being able to stream Android games attached to my Elgato HD60 is one. This is what the Cherry Mobile MAIA Smart Tab lacks, and obviously, this is what O+ Duo excels in.
6Free Microsoft Office Mobile
7Gaming on Android is Good
I’m not kidding. NBA 2K16 works flawlessly. It’s fluid and it doesn’t require me to turn off some details. Playing Asphalt is equally fun. If you’re into playing games, O+ Duo can give you the satisfaction you need. And if you want to switch to some of your casual games on Steam, all you need to do is… well… switch your OS to Windows. It’s that flexible.
8Some Casual games via Steam work
9Streaming Games via Steam Works Perfectly
Hold it. You can’t play Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain on O+ Duo. But if you’ve got a powerful PC at home and a very decent WiFi Router, you can take your gaming with you to anywhere you want by streaming the game via O+ Duo.
Streaming games via Steam is a breeze on O+ Duo. Streaming, in fact, works mostly on all laptops provided that you have network infrastructure. I’m just fascinated to see that I can play my favorite games with me anywhere.. anytime. Yeah – even inside the bathroom. And no Huniepop please.
